Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Would anyone happen to know of literature about the pragmatic/discourse role of word order in Old French? The sources I've found just acknowledge that different orders exist, without going into any detail on when and why they were used. (Relatedly, I'm also looking into Old French's agreement of the...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

So I read that French stresses the last syllable with a full vowel at the end of a phrase, instead of just having word final stress. This is correct. It's easy to misinterpret French stress as word final because, when a French word is cited in isolation, it counts as a "phrase" (or "...

Taylor Swift - All Too Well (10 Minute Version) "All Too Well" was already one of my favorite Swift songs because of how specific and vivid its images are, and the 10-minute version just drills even deeper. But I can understand why it was cut in half originally (besides its length); that'...

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: 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...

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".
