Re: Last word you learned in a foreign language

I learned the French noun "temps," meaning time or weather. I learned this in the French part of the Esperanto book Fundamento de Esperanto. In Esperanto, the corresponding word for time is "tempo."

Munsee vs Unami

Hello. I have been studying the Eastern Algonquian languages recently. One language that I have focused on is the Munsee Delaware language, which interests me as it only has two speakers left (both living in Ontario). But when I researched this language, I noticed something that perplexed me. I have...

Calculating lexical similarities

Hello,
I am interested in calculating lexical similarity between languages and dialects. I wonder what type of mathematics (calculus, algebra, etc.) would be used for these calculations.

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

What are the differences between a fusional and an agglutinative language? Fusional languages encode multiple meanings in grammatical morphemes, -kio could be present tense, imperfect aspect, conditional mood. Agglutinating languages separate these into multiple morphemes.

Re: New language discovered recently in Malaysia.

Given close genealogical connection, geographic continuity, ethnic identity, diglossia and mutual intelligibility, why exactly is this considered a 'new language' suddenly, rather than a series of dialectical features that it seems is only used in code-switching any? Particular when the speaker siz...

Re: Wacky theory on Basque.

I do not see a relation to Basque and Etruscan. The Basque language is grouped with Aquitanian and sometimes Iberian in a Vasconic group, and Etruscan is proposed to be part of a Tyrsenian language family along with Lemnian and Rhaetic.
