Which is the hoax? The VM itself or Gibb's interpretation?

Ah. Is it illegal anymore to record a lecture? Didn't used to.


Like qwed117 said, the legality has a lot to do with getting the professor's consent. I think it would be hard to justify recording the professor in a class with less than 5 students.

Yeah, I guess I forgot that. As I've said, I really do appreciate the concern, but I wasn't looking for any feedback. What's done is done, though, and I do agree that it's nice that CBB members have a place to come if they do want feedback on a non-conlanging or conworlding related problem.




I met with my advisor yesterday and painlessly dropped the class. All's well that ends well.

Hmmm...

It does remind me a lot of Tironian Notes

And surely some bits from Medieval Latin abbreviature
https://medievalfragments.files.wordpre ... -35-am.png

And Voynichese can have the sweep and dip of Greek Ligatures-
http://www.constitution.org/img/gr_ligature.jpg

It's tantalizingly familiar... but not.

Onodera Itsunori may be the nicest sounding name I've ever heard in any language. Japanese is soooooo euphonic! This is my cellar door.

I've no opinions whatsoever about the politician; just came across his name in a news article.

I agree completely about Japanese's euphony, and that's an amazing-sounding name. :mrgreen: I've been listening to songs by REOL recently and looking up the lyrics, and am always impressed with how cool the words sound (for lack of a better term). It makes me feel like I'll never be able to come up with words that euphonic for my conlang [:P]

I think furitsuzuketetanda wins the award for my favorite Japanese word :)

[+1] Japanese is my favorite language, if I'm going just by how it sounds.

I have a distinct partiality for "Oda Nobunaga". It's an extremely pleasing-sounding name for me. Something about those particular consonants and vowels together is just lovely.

All the huzzahs! [:D] Tell us if you learn anything especially interesting.

On a different note,

Wiktionary wrote:
spurge

1. (intransitive) To emit foam; to froth; said of the emission of yeast from beer during fermentation.

[o.O]

You're articulate for a single-celled organism.

Right?

As if Lingua Ignota were refracted through a prism of Tlön Uqbar Orbis Tertius (at the very least!)

Looks interesting :) I think I might buy it myself. We could use a "book recommendation" thread, specifically for linguistics books. I have five books on Indo-European now, but I'm interested in other fields. :)

I was just going to link to this thread since it might be the closest thing we have to a book recommendation thread, but it looks like you've already visited it in the past.

Well there is the NEW Resources Thread. Loads of linguistics books listed there.

There's also the Conlangers' Library; and members of the LCS also have the opportunity to borrow books from the LCS Lending Library.

This is the only "Omega" I can find in the Index Diachronic v.10
Quote:
tʃ → Ω (This is my own notation. I don’t have a clue what the intermediate form was; became something else in different dialects)
(It became /s/ in Hanoi Vietnamese, and /ʂ/ in Saigon Vietnamese)
