Re: Osroene: A Possible Euphratic IE Language

The reptoids of the planet Rathar have a caste system: Caste 1: royalty Caste 2: high-ranking military, people who fill important duties for royalty Caste 3: lower-ranking military, merchants and slave-dealers, restaurateurs and chefs Caste 4: skilled lower workers, footsoldiers Caste 5: unskilled w...

-Klaivas-! There's a name I haven't heard in some time! (And according to the Members Firectory, he never made it to the CBB . . . or did he use a different screenname here?)

Re: Pop/Rock thread

So today I was checking out the music of Chumbawamba, beyond "Tubthumping" (which is the one Chumbawamba song that Americans all know). I came across this title, and I had to share it with the people on this board.

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

I notice this too with names beginning with "Mc". Many people say what to my ears sounds like /mɪk/, as in "MickDonalds" (even the parody name "SickDonalds" reflects that pronunciation). I seem to say /mək/ or as close to it as I can. I'm not saying I'm better, I'm just noticing /ɪ/ in places where...

Oh, I didn't know that. Intresting [:D]

Re: Language creation

What do you mean? 3,900 is far larger than most conlangs ever get in lexicon. When I was talking about the size of Kankonian's and Shaleyan's lexicons in the Lexicon Milestones thread , people were saying things like: "Good job. My conlangs have 7-10 words each." I guess I have seen more conlangers...

Oxford spelling? Huh. I had read before that some British folks insisted upon using -ize in words with Greek roots (apologize, sympathize, criticize, etc.) but -ise in words with Latin roots (realise, recognise, incentivise, etc.), but I never knew that some British publishers went -ize all the way...

Why is the word "recognize" spelt the American way in the music video for "Undisclosed Desires" even though Muse are a British band?
