Re: How deranged is the English spelling system?

I am a second learner of English, a pretty good one at that, and the English spelling system is the kinda thing that make me wanna rip my eyes out. It seems not only foreign learners are frustrated with this spelling system, but also native speakers. In the couple of past weeks, I researched this t...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

I have been watching frankly ludicrous amounts of Mystery Science Theater 3000 lately. Which wouldn't be such a problem if I didn't keep staying up until midnight doing it! The episodes are just so long... and sometimes the movies are so aggressively terrible I have to take longer breaks than the h...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

No, bees pollinate flowers. Yellowjackets (and other wasps) mostly just murder things. I learned recently that wasps actually do pollinate, just not very effectively; they themselves eat nectar in their adult morph, but their grubs are insectivorous (which is why I used to think wasps were predator...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Sorry for the double-post, but I felt like this was sufficiently off-topic. Still, I would like to see if you could craft a word cognate in your Germlang to the :got: lexeme combo --> heitō + saiws + wōds (Else saiws + heitô +wôds) "feverishly wroth like the sea" Why, if I might ask?

Re: Po Polsku

In the Yiddish spelling, it's definitely a /x/. Also I found a romanazation, and the person Germanified it <Chasch>. If the initial sound was the affricate, wouldn't have the person spelt it <Tschasch>? IMO, <Chasch> is the best Germanized romanazation of Polish <Chaś> Todah rabbah! Clearly I went ...

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Did *r historically follow the *a which yielded <á>? Alternatively, does <á> come from *au? That being said, I gotta know if /ɐ̯/ is a remnant of *Vr or not haha No to both, I'm afraid.
