Re: What have you been reading lately? (linguistic ed.)

Crazy smart fellow, that Dr. Ringe. I had the pleasure of taking a class under him in Ancient Greek Historical Grammar… oh, about 587 Trine ago…

Re: Lingua Latina

Well here comes a suggestion for an epicene pronoun in Latin. The closest thing to a complete epicene pronoun of any sort in Latin is the animate interrogative /quis/, as it has only an animate/inanimate distinction with neuter /quid/ However, I would offer isquis based on quisquis the relative/inte...

Really, really, really REALLY would love for linguist & fantasy author Alan Garner to dig up and post some/all of his original notes on the Skeksish language on the 'Net.

Too busy from the start of the Academic year to be too involved in any particular thing to "deep end" depth. But I am anxiously waiting to see full episodes of "Dark Crystal: Age of Resistence". The original movie, upon which "Age of Resistence" is based, was one of the major impulses that got me in...

[ Galaxy: baby shark (a trick answer: English 'galaxy' comes from the Greek word for a dogfish, a small shark*) You're talking about γαλεός , ¿? As another possibility, one could use the possibly related γαλέη 'weasel' (mustelid), and said a galaxy was something like an Ermine-Cloud . :wat:

I'm sure you have your own quick & dirty ways of finding the Greek antecedents of Spanish towns and cities, but if you can get your hands on this map supplement from Nat Geo (DEC 1982) - it had many many town names in Latin/Greek/Phoenician around the Mediterranean.

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Spurred by your offering, Xonen, I looked for some similar casts/recordings on Soundcloud for Coptic and Carpatho-Rusyn. Only chants in Coptic and a lot of "Coptic" themed casts in Arabic (a few in English). A few more offerings in Carpatho-Rusyn.

Re: Assistance sought with very far future setting

I'm not sure that's a good idea. Designing your ship to land is hugely difficult and expensive - imagine trying to float a city! - and there's no real need for it. What you'd actually do is "anchor" in orbit and portage everything down to the planet on shuttle. [and if a colony ship is a city, you ...
