Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I'm feeling crushed right now. I found this really nice online French-Arpitan dictionary maybe a month ago. It had a good number of entries, context sentences, even a few recordings, and the search function worked in both directions. Perfect for my work on Silvish. But it turns out I never bookmark...

Re: New language discovered recently in Malaysia.

I thought fecal tossing was limited to the Great Apes. I learned something today. :wat:

Also, this:

Most English speakers aren't consciously aware of the distinction between /ŋ/ and /ŋg/.
A number of Caribbean Spanish speakers aren't aware that they are using a particularly resonant /ŋ/ in word final position for /n/.

I do not think E.T.s would broadcast a message in one of their langs. I think they would try to make sure they were understood in one of Humanity's langs, one of the 'noisiest' from radio/tv/ and Intertoobs. Now, what that would sound like, out of their snergellers, would interesting to hear. The ET...
