Two related questions.
1). Is there such a thing as aging-related dyslexia?
Did a quick -n-dirty google a day or two after you posted this. Whereas it seems like one can manifest dyslexia at almost any time of life, I didn't see anything specifically related to it manifesting in aging.
2). Did anyone besides me ever misread it as “Misnomer Murders” instead of “Midsomer Murders”?
Not exactly. Would the victims be offed because they had the wrong name (or wrong kind of name), or because the murderer got the name wrong?
[xP] :wat:

BTW, that's the sort of dyslexis I tend to do. [:$]

Decided to work on a little project this week. Namely, trolling the Ancient Archives for World related materials. Old posts and convos from pubs and taverns long derelict with friends now far distant. (Though one or two happily hang around here! [xD] )

Boy was I surprised to dig up well over a thousand pages of material! [O.O] Much of it I recognised, of course. Some is now hopelessly outdated. But some things came as total bezunderwerkers I had no particular recollection of.

I've been collaborating with Dewrad, the creator of Dravian: probably the best naturalistic romance language ever made (well, to me at least) and very similar to my own project, which takes place in the same region.

While the last time we chatted he told me he hadn't much time to get back to me due to new government work, he managed to respond to my last email on May 28th. Since then I've tried emailing him 5 or 6 different times, all with no response. This is disappointing as he was the only person I knew who had a fairly good authority on the romance languages of the northwest Balkan region.

I hope nothing bad happened to him...
He's probably just busy. Or bored of the subject. If you want to push your luck, have you tried asking about him on isharia?
...isharia?
Possibly pointing to a ZBB-related chat channel in which Dewrad had some mildly interesting history,

Other iterations of isharia lead to the country of wild geese.
Anyway I'll send another email in a month or so. He said he got an influx of 900+ emails within a short period of time so I reckon it's being buried under them.
Quite possibly!
Interesting. I saw him post on Verduria (ZBB's new site), and there I've contacted him, so I'll see if I get a response.

Speaking of people whom haven't been around for a while, I've not seen much of Ephraim (or any of the old Swedish posters for that matter).

Ooh! You've reminded me!!! In a month will be the annual Lithuanian Mugė (Cultural/Christmas Bazaar). They sell balandeliai as big as your foot, and blynai with all the sour cream and applesauce you can handle, and as many chilled frothy Svyturys as you can chug!!! [:P] [:P] [:P] [:P] [:P]

And the Lithuanian (Jewish) apple-cake, sweet moist aromatic and ambrosial! [:D] [:D] [:D]

And enough amber jewelry to choke an Indominus Rex himself!

Labai gerai!!!!

Tis the season for Fall Festivals!

Hereabouts, I think the Greeks have theirs in the Spring, but the Russians & Panslavs and Swedes & Germans & so forth will be decking the halls with music and food and all sorts of goodies!

And of course all the Fall flea markets & book sales. The mind boggles!

I'm pleased by how much of my Introduction to Linguistics course feels like review [:D] I guess I knew more about this subject than I thought. I owe most of that to conlanging, that's for sure :mrgreen:

Same. My serious conlanging began here and probably at the same time I decided to be an anthropologist.

Always freaks me out that I've been here for eight years when the board switched over from the Old CBB. I'd finished university, been told my grade, and was waiting to graduate, get married, and move on to become an archaeologist. Now I'm working in a shop, single, and... working in a shopm but at least I still have the CBB [xD]
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.

'Round here, The Greeks here usually have theirs in early August or September; I recall that it's always very hot whenever I attend: Summersende or Indian Summer.

The super early German American Society just had their (pre-)Oktoberfest. Not a big fan of the suds, I prefer to go to the Kristkindlmarkt in sharp, chilly winter.

I just went to the traditional Russian Orthodox festival today. Hard-core noshing and noshing and mounching and mounching. Good thing I avoided Breakfast and lunch today and had a big walk to whet the appetite! Balalaikas strumming (live!) and the church youth doing their czardaszes and troikas and other dances. Boǯe moy - Who stole the kiška?! [:D]
