Re: Lexicon-phonology relationship

I'm trying to create a conlang in which the lexical meaning of each word is somewhat encoded into the word's pronunciation. My goal would be that if two words sound alike, there is a high chance that they mean something similar; it should thus be possible to understand what a word means just by hea...

Re: 8values political quiz

Anyway, I'm triangulated with khemekis and kiwikami - more left-wing than the former, more liberal than the latter. This apparently pushes me over from 'social liberalism' into 'libertarian socialism'. Taken as a general space term, rather than adhering too strictly to either 'libertarian' or 'soci...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Listening to Relaxing Foggy Forest (Virtual Drive) / Rain Storm and Thunder Sounds. Unlike other rain videos, this one shows actual movement through the forest. Wonderful! I wish I were there, right in this weather.

This is wrong. And our world is the way it is because most normal people don't want to accept that NOT EVERYONE has emotions.

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

As I noted earlier, I would say - or at least write - " a round", not "round". Maybe this is the tone you're going for, but to me, "round" looks very informal, like the writer is trying to represent a spoken shortening of " a round". Although maybe this is just another dialectal issue, and for some...

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

I don't think that's an accurate summation. If someone said "He showed her around in the ship" it would sound like a trafficking scheme of some sorts. That's how a non-native could interpret that sentences. Typically just "he showed her around the ship" means that she is being given a tour of the s...

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

I agree. Although "shows her around in the ship" is also possible. But would probably mean something like "he showed her around [his collection of belleek] in the ship", rather than showing her the parts of the ship itself. I can also maybe imagine something like someone complaining "I spend all da...

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

Leo gives "to show so. round" for German "jmdn. herumführen". Is it ok to write "He shows her round in the ship" or is it "He shows her round the ship"? I'd say " a round" and without "in", so "He shows her around the ship". I agree. Although "shows her around in the ship" is also possible. But wou...

I've started to translate my story "Hexe Thekla und der Glücksdrache" (Witch Thekla and the dragon of fortune). This is actually a children's stroy, which is part of another book I write about LaTeX for authors. It's used there as an example story. I've not yet translated the titles. Even though I k...

Re: RE: Making a Computer that runs on Magic

Second: Computers don't have to be linear What does that mean? You probably mean that computers does not have to be digital. Yes, there are the so-called analog computers. They usually compute a single function. These function does not need to be linear, of course, it might e. g. an exponential fun...
