Re: Regional Dialect and Idiolect Oddities (pronunciation)

Yes, I was* a user of /gʌt/. I had /ʌ/ in "gotta", "gotten", "forgot" and "forgotten", but I think I had /ɒː/ in "begot" and "begotten". *I've since switched to the "short-o" version, though. My accent was an ENE-GA hybrid from th...

Re: Language fleeting thoughts

That reminds me of a lot of the traditional English legal doublets, like "breaking and entering", "assault and battery", "cease and desist". (The last one is all Latin, but hey, there are no brakes on the doublet train.) Unrelated LFT: I'm kinda down with the wacky/unba...

Re: Regional Dialect and Idiolect Oddities (pronunciation)

/ˈgɛt/ is what I use and what I generally hear around here. But yeah, I agree that while pen-pin mergers usually seem to have /ˈgɪt/, not all /ˈgɪt/ users have the merger. If I remember correctly, Ben Franklin used "git" when he wrote letters in his phonetic alphabet.

Re: Trump presidency

According to WH sources, Bannon has been openly feuding with Kushner and has referred to him as a "cuck"(!), "globalist" and fifth columnist. I wonder if he's on his way out.

Re: لنتكلم العربية (Arabic practice)

So… I've gone back and forth on whether to add Arabic to the list of languages I'm seriously trying to learn. I really like the language esthetically and I've gotten a pretty good grasp of the standard phonology, but one of the things that's been deterring me is the diglossia question: most learning...

Re: Breaking Up the United States

It's also a gross oversimplification to think that there have only been two consistent sides. Each "side" is a shifting coalition with a variety of regional cultures and subcultures within it. For one concrete example, the ancestors of Trump's much-mooted white, working-class Rust Belt vot...

Re: Trump presidency

"US Defence Secretary James Mattis says climate change is already destabilising the world". I continue to think that Mattis is probably the most reasonable major figure in the administration. Donald just fell in love with his superficial Patton image.

Re: Trump presidency

Also, it's been a hell of a long time since "America First" was an uncontroversial expression of patriotism. John McCain, who's likely more historically aware, kept himself to the awkward "Country First" in order to avoid the phrase's bad old connotations, but Trump paid it no mi...

Re: Trump presidency

Trump tweetleges that Obama ordered a wiretap on Trump Tower, possibly incited by a Breitbart piece that ran yesterday ("Mark Levin to Congress: Investigate Obama’s 'Silent Coup' vs. Trump"). Obama is a "bad (or sick) guy!", so you know it must be true.
