More frightful, some technician at my school apparently did the same. Apparently no one from the school was victimized though.

In related news: Look at my new flashy shiny animated avatar! (It's not completely done, but I wanted to see how well gifs would work for an avatar.) It took me 5 hours to figure out how to get GIMP to work. Turns out the only way to make this well is to use layers when drawing and then merging them

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

Not sure I buy the article from what I'm reading. If <wl> signifies /ɫ/, why would /ɫ/ and /l/ become phonemic later (in British English tmk)? Redeveloping a rare distinction if you've just lost it seems pretty senseless Sound change has no memory, so while it may be unlikely, a rare distinction ca...

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

I found some article on exactly this topic recently: Fisiak, Jacek. “THE OLD ENGLISH <WR-> AND <WL->” In: Linguistics , 1967, Vol.5(32), pp.12-14. What it basically says is: The graphemic representations <wr-> and <wl-> represent single phonemes (/ɻ/ and /ɫ/, respectively), as cluster realisations ...

a. When and where did the merger happen? b. Are there any extant 'lects of English that don't have this merger? It's appears to have emerged in the 1700s. It doesnt occur in Doric Scots, where it becomes /vr/. It looks like the merger was happening over a long period of time, the /r/ was likely lab...

One thing may be said: If the state-provided services aren't enough, one can buy additional modules, specific to one's needs, from semi-private insurance companies.

This is a literal shower-thought.

Re: Yay or Nay?

I concur, definitely use the Sinitic borrowing for the more formal situations, the power relations are just too unequal in the scenario for simple dialectal variation. I think I'll with that option then. Do you think it'd be weird for the /a˦˧˥/ pronunciation to also occur in some compound words th...

Re: Yay or Nay?

Where did /a˦˧˥/ and /so˧˩˧/ come from? Do they both mean mute? The first is borrowed from Chinese, the second is native. Both mean mute. If that is the case, then I definitely think that /a˦˧˥/ should be used to mean mute in a more formal sense, with /so˧˩˧/ being used in certain dialects to indic...

Right now I'm working on the pronunciation of the character 啞 in Ởnh·Vú and right now I have 2 possibilities: 1. It's usually pronounced as /a˦˧˥/ except when used as an adjectival verb meaning mute/dumb where it can be pronounced either as /a˦˧˥/ or /so˧˩˧/ depending on dialect and personal prefer...

Would like to say that I think that arming the police with rubber ducks would be quite an interesting prospect.
