I really appreciate all the work, and thorough detail, and frankly have been :shock: stunned and pleasantly surprised by your ability to assign (tentative) phonetic values to Beanish words. The jargon is good because it's easy to look up: The word copula is pretty easy to look up if I want to learn more. Calling it a "linking word" :roll: like they did in my grammar school, would be far lass useful.


Well, having played with conlangs when I was a teen helped me just a little bit... But funny you mention the copula, because it is a term much more appropriate and specific than "linking word" -- not to mention that, when one studies English, to have "to be" as a verb that does the copula instead of a 'link" makes a lot more sense ("to link" just makes me suppose that the words are at the same level, without the hierarchy that you find in actual usages in most cases, and that the influence must be in some way reciprocal). But I remember one teacher in Brazil unconfortable with "copula" just because of its secondary sexual meaning (but I guess "to copulate" sounds a little less "clinical" in Portuguese).

BlueCrab wrote:Non-native English speakers: In most cases, I haven't know that English wasn't your native language until you've pointed it out; if forced to find a tell-tale it might be that native speakers bend more rules. I suppose that's because we weren't taught the grammar rules as precisely - taking French classes in school taught me a lot more about English grammar than I ever learned in ‘Language Arts’ class. (That's grammar, composition, literature, and a bit of sociology. And a lovely commentary on the way US schools function - combining 3 subjects into one class leaves more room in the schedule for... other subjects, I suppose? Certainly not anything important, like music or art :| )

tresoldi, you're doing fine :) Your posts are pretty technical for the untrained, but I got through the geographical discussion, the astronomical discussion, and all the other discussions that were over my head, and learned a lot just by trying to keep up. I'm learning a lot from yours too, including how woefully inadequate my country's educational form can be, and enjoying every bit. I supposed you could spoiler your posts by paragraph or similar, but I don't think it's necessary :)


Well, I know one or two linguists that would like to comment on that, and I'd have to support some of their statements. :wink:

But it is great to read that, and I know your feeling: having worked as a teacher of Italian in Brazil (mind, two languages that are closer than English and French), students usually tell me that they are learning more about Portuguese grammar while studying Italian than when they went to school, sometimes even saying that they enjoy it, which is a bit surprising, as Italian grammar can be pretty scary. If you English speakers want something with a pre-Beanish level of difficulty, go study our dear particles CI and NE, not to mention the partitive pronoun NE, akin to French "y" and "en": in Italian you have something like "Hai mangiato la torta? Sì, l'ho mangiata." (from "la ho") and "Hai mangiato la torta? Sì, ne ho mangiata una parte." ("Did you eat the cake? Yes, I did eat it." / "Did you eat the cake? Yes, I did eat a part of it." -- the pronoun changes because you did not eat the entire cake, but just a part of it). Now, wrap your mind around "Quanta acqua c'è nella Terra? Ce n'è molta" ("How much water is there on Earth? There is a lot [of it]" -- yes, with the partitive "ne").

But what do you mean with "spoiler by paragraph"?

Which reminds me that I must state my support to @yappobiscuit "Beanies are descended from OTTers" theory.

That's new for me. AFAIAKnew the sexual meaning was the primary one (which you won't hear outside Science/Biology classes anyway). I think we used “linking verb” in the Grammar² classes.

I was once learning German in one of the state's Language Study Centers¹. There was one day we could go to other classes and have a small introduction to the other languages being offered there. I chose Italian. It was fun and all, but apparently my German vocalization was quite noticeable.

¹ For one semester. Then the teacher moved to Germany. I kept going for about a third of the next semester.

Oh, well, I should have said "professor", it was at the university, and he was supposed to say "cópula" in that context. :) I don't remember "cópula" in Elementary of High School in Brazil, but I vaguely remember it being used in Italy when I was a kid (or maybe my mind is playing tricks on me, but I just checked and found the term in a grammar intended for Liceo, secondary education).

I tried that game out once. It was seaishly difficult - they only barely abstracted the hard scientific concepts, so the learning curve was quite sharp. I don't recall if they ever had any big successes.

There are other ways to make hotdogs benefit the world. The easiest ones involve making people think in ways they wouldn't normally think, and that other mediums such as paper-movies and screen-flipbooks don't convey as well.

Oh no, newpixbot has done a double post! I was too busy reading about the death of IE6 and various programming paradigms to check the thread. Did you know there are languages where you specify what you want and the program figures out how to do it? Also that China is still mostly on IE6, so their big search engine Baidu renders just fine on the ol' IE6/XP pairing.

Raptor identification attempting...

This is a finch or related raptor. It does not have an eyestripe, which elminates many finches. It's beak is standard size, which again eliminates many finches.

This leaves:
* Corn bunting - possible
* Female Yellowhammer - good for the habitat
* Linet - possible

There is no scale or colours, but on the available evidence I think the female Yellowhammer is the most likely.

My favorite otherthread is probably make xkcd slightly worse. It's such a weird concept, but so funny.

Oh hey! I'm not the last octomeowlpy!
I made my avatar, Buffygirl hatted it, Yappo smileyed it and ggh taroted it!
I've changed, witnessing this thing so beautiful

Good luck on blitzing, katakissa, username5243, musthavebeenmykarma, iskinner, thunk, GnomeAnne, and quantized ! Keep the signposts coming, we love em in the now!

I was only commenting on the first case (bold in Jose's post). So if I do something and I want to do it again, it's a good idea to think that what I did was cool; that way some automatic background process will also encourage me to do it again - and together we may overcome the objections of laziness, reluctance to repeat, and whatever other forces are driving me to not do it again. That's what I found weird. you're never alone with your brain


Isn't the brain fascinating? Every time I think about it I almost wish I had gone into neuroscience or something because the whole concept of a "brain" really interests me. In fact,the whole of biology interests me in the sense that our bodies are basically a giant sequence of finely tuned chemical (and electrochemical) reactions/interactions that is somehow is capable of managing itself on a macroscopic level. Not only that but we come complete with awesome features like memory, analytical/creative/abstract thinking, kinesthesia/propioception, emotion, the ability to communicate complex thoughts, and about a thousand other things I'll save you the time of reading through. Keep that in mind next time you say that someone isn't cool, because you're wrong! They're cool by nature! :wink:



azuleWell, it's not as cute as azule's fox, but its the best I could find while I was at work. And its RELATED at least (though a bit 1)

We seem to be slippin' (slippin', slippin') back to pre-timiversary raptorishness. A distinct lack of our resident ChatterBox isn't helping, though.

Yes it is... maybe yappo and BG are working on part two of the OTTscars. :-)

Possibly Yappo is postponing posts to postulate to papal position ?

Temporal edit to prevent myself from popedom :

So we're keeping on par with OTT predictions so far, then ^^
