Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

I just want to say that I'd like to give it another shot, although finding the time to go back over things may be tricky. A brief response to feedback and a few new thoughts: Proto-ABCD *[ˈpʼatʼisæ] - *[ɲæˈtukːa] - *[hilaˈmæŋgo] This is the closest anyone has been so far, and it's actually remarkabl...

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

As I noted earlier, I would say - or at least write - " a round", not "round". Maybe this is the tone you're going for, but to me, "round" looks very informal, like the writer is trying to represent a spoken shortening of " a round". Although maybe this is just another dialectal issue, and for some...

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

I agree. Although "shows her around in the ship" is also possible. But would probably mean something like "he showed her around [his collection of belleek] in the ship", rather than showing her the parts of the ship itself. I can also maybe imagine something like someone complaining "I spend all da...

Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

I guess here's a good place to mention that I'll be moving in a little less than two months: I got a job as a postdoc in the Netherlands! Stuff'll be similar-ish to what I've been doing as a Ph.D. student/postdoc here in Luxembourg, but different enough to be quite a fun and exciting challenge. Plu...

Leo gives "to show so. round" for German "jmdn. herumführen".

Is it ok to write "He shows her round in the ship" or is it "He shows her round the ship"?
I'd say "around" and without "in", so "He shows her around the ship".

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Does it mean something like "to suffer/endure a fate"? More or less, yes. Is the intended meaning more specific or less specific, if that makes sense? Sorry, I should have been more clear that I think that is an acceptable answer. haha I would actually gloss it as "accept (one's) fate." Oh, haha, m...
