Re: The Cool Animals/Plants Thread (Dead or Alive)

So, one day, while my son was playing either Ark:Survival or Spore, he asked me if there was any such thing as an aquatic sloth. I was stumped. I didn't think any Edentates (or Xenarthans, as they are called now) dove into the rivers or seas. Ever. I mean, I think David Attenborough has showcased a ...

Re: (EE) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

However, at a certain age -- single digits, but older than five, but I don't remember exactly when -- it seems my daughter's favorite assertion was "I don't need no help!".

Re: We are the last live leaves of the dying tree

Makes me think of the poor American Chestnut tree. I hope that a robust combo of genetic crossing/splicing.CRISPring with the Asian Chestnut can renew vigour in its feeble boughs, and once more make it a crown of 'Murican Woods.

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

The Lost Tree I looked it up on Youtube. Found some trailers, zilch in the review dept. I also found the compleat movie uploaded. The comments in Trailer #2 seem to include the writer-director's edgier friends, relatives and Fillum-classmates. :roll: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7eM2pDwOh0 MST3...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Looking at my shelf of graphic novels / manga, what stands out to me: Bone (Jeff Smith) - I'd classify it as fantasy-adventure Maus (Art Spiegelman) - Depressing, about World War II, but soooo good. Not quite in what you were asking for, but good enough for me to recommend it anyway Nausicaa of the...

Re: compound word dating in Japanese?

I wish I could give a quick and dirty answer. Mine would be to kind of use the Go'on and Kan'on pronunciations as a guide, but, insofar as compounds are concerned, you might wind up with some real chimeras. So, maybe this may give a better idea https://skemman.is/bitstream/1946/23619/1/The%20history...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I have discovered a new sound rule in Old Albic, the "phangcva rule". In Old Albic, there is a dissimilation rule affecting aspirated stops which resembles Grassmann's Law in Greek: of two aspirated stops, the first loses the aspiration. So /thakh/ becomes /takh/. But there is an exception: if the ...
