Almost half of the people where I live have that. I'm guessing it's dialectical, but it's not the nicest thing to listen to, as you say: It's a thing that children normally have, so listening to adults with it is a little weird - even after living here for over a decade now.

Re: Funny Speech Quirks and More!

I'm not sure if this is a quirk or just a result of my combined accents what with me having a father that grew up in Ireland before moving to London, a mother that has always lived in Essex, and myself spending the first 5 years of my life in London before moving to the North bit of the South West, ...

I don't like using browser-based software. I much prefer having a program I can download and use, especially offline. But I'm weird.
Chrome did let me put a standalone one on my computer somehow. I have no idea how I got it, but it's cool and basically a standalone.

Re: Diagram "Two plus two equals four"?

I'd say it was some form of compound of nouns. "two plus two" here is behaving as a single noun, with the verb and object afterwards. The "plus" might be a grammatical form of "added to" that is used in such numerical compounding.

Re: If everybody though the same...

If everybody is thinking the same thing at the same time, they must be doing the same thing as well. And this is impossible. What if every single one of us decided to take our Audi A4 onto I-5?

Re: If everybody though the same...

Why not go for a medium-level version of the question? Rather than the entire species having "the same views and opinions", why not have there be generational divides, or population-based divides, i.e. once every however many generations or once the population reaches a certain critical limit, the ...

Re: Funny Speech Quirks and More!

Another interesting tick, which would happen to me very often, was that this guy who was once a really good friend of mine would switch the beginning consonants of two words, especially if they were compounds and proper names, like some sort of strange metathesis. This is known as Spoonerism , and ...

I attempted to fix my computer's fan (by taking it out of the casing). When I frantically tried to put it back together after discovering that one screw wouldn't come out, I didn't put the hard drive in correctly (upside down), and ultimately received a "No boot found" error.

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

I don't often create more than three or four words at once, and then usually just because they're related or I'm translating something. Because I generally create an etymology for each word, it can take several minutes to create one, starting from figuring out what the etymology will be, if it's a ...

When you're down making words, how quickly do you find yourself making them and adding them to a dictionary/lexicon book?

* For some reason, this crashes my phone's browser after generating about 3-4 languages; a friend also told me that his Chrome crashed after a while.

I've finished my root list. I have ~150 roots, ~100 of which have an antonym form, along with 10-20 productive affixes to use. They all have their own little bits of word (what's the term for these?) that I can combine, and I have a dictionary template made in LaTeX to keep it nice and organised. Ed...

Re: Future English Collablang

I expect the upper class might have better resources to defend themselves, so they'll likely survive better. I'd go RP. Though you do say that everyone becomes isolated, so one would expect a version of most of these dialects to develop.

Also, you missed the best dialect: SSBE

I've finished the formatting for my Project Mimal textbook and have written the introduction and the 6 or so pages on phonology. I'm now working on a custom font thing for typesetting the writing system.
