Re: An eleventh-degree relationship

Does your cousin’s spouse’s sibling’s spouse count as a relative? (Perhaps equivalently: does your spouse’s sibling’s spouse’s cousin count as a relative?) English certainly doesn't have a specific term for this relationship or for the more distant one you gave. In my U.S. Anglophone cultural exper...

Re: How to choose an architectural style?

There isn't a particular rule against manual signatures. That said, it might be a courtesy to use the automatic feature, because a user can arrange their settings to hide automatic signatures. There is?! I didn’t know that! How? On the User Control Panel, go to the "Board preferences" tab...

Re: What are the differences between lexis, lexicon, vocabulary?

To start off, Siberia got "lexis" and "lexicon" switched, so that may be where some confusion is coming from. As Kearsley says, a lexicon is a language's inventory of lexemes. A lexeme is an abstract concept, the unit of meaning underlying various inflected forms. For example, in...

The problem that I run into with these is that morphosyntactically I would expect these to behave like articles and adjectives, meaning that the single syllable forms would be pronounced as secondarily stressed clitics, meaning that <tò nóm> would not be pronounced /tɔ nõ/ like I indicated in the L...

Re: Seeking a linguistic term

Welcome to the board, tikoo! The philosophical language aUI seems to be based on the same concept. Wikipedia calls the language oligosynthetic, but this term is about the number of morphemes a language has, not their form. I don't know of a term specifically for "one phoneme=one morpheme".
