Pen menge parmisa, papo! Pen menge ko phures tsires. Erzähl' uns eine Geschichte , Opa! Erzähl' uns über die alte Zeit. Tell us a story, grandpappa! Tell us about the old time. L'imperativo tedesco non ha il sufisso “-en” nel singolare, ma anche puoi dire “erzähle”. Poi, la parola “Erzählung” non f...

Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

Wow, the current redesign of the CBB is very much screaming “21st-century minimalism”.

Re: RIP cursive handwriting..

I was taught cursive in grade 2 ( Vereinfachte Ausgangsschrift ), but my usual handwriting continues to be terrible to this day. Two years later, I received a small book on improving one's handwriting and the look of one's schoolwork: Inside were a few different scripts, and I soon learned to read a...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

The question was mostly rhetorical for humor's sake... nonetheless, I don't understand your answer. Right...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I translated this song into the early South-Western dialect of Middle English (from a ca. 1250s London dialect). I erased all references to Christianity if this translation ever were to be used in a special context (Fantasy-RPGs) and a German translation is on its way.

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I don't use singular they (consciously, but I sometimes slip into it) since it wasn't part of my English Foreign Language education; thus it seems ungrammatical to me, like those bazillions of “alternative ‘pronouns’”. So I use he (as the word human is of masculine gender and I'd rather stress the h...
