What's your favorite word?


Mine's "Widdershins" which is an old-timey way of saying counter-clockwise.

And I say we should all use it more often! Because counter-clockwise is a stupid word!

Discombobulated.

It's an awesome word because it sounds exactly like what it means!

"Tallywacker"


I'll be running down the hallway naked as a kid, and my father would say "put some clothes on, before I cut your Tallywacker off"


Definitely going to use that word for my kid if he runs around naked.

That comes from weddersins which is middle low German for "against direction" fun fact.

people always neglect the fact that nightmares are dreams too. No I'm a linguist, some might say a cunning one ( ohh snap ) so i mean go for it if you want, some brains pick it up easy, some dont. I learned the Cyrillic alphabet in two homebase periods at like 13 ( home base was 15 mins in the morning, where they prattled on about shit no one listened to ) if you pick it up easy, enjoy it, go for it, if it busts ya balls, dont.


work smart, not hard.

i'll teach you some simple sumerian cuneiform


𒀭 (TWO DIAGONALS, HORIZONTAL, AND A VERTICAL) is a sign with two meanings: TING-EA-TT (god as an honorific before the names of gods - it's silent and not pronounced) or the syllable 'an' (also the proper name of a supreme sky god in sumerian mythology)


the akkadian for the same symbol is simpler but it is not available in unicode - here you go, anyways (it would be written with two overlapping horizontal presses of a wedge-cut reed stylus and one horizontal press as opposed to the four presses the sumerian would take):


iu_93413_1486208.png

cuneiform is quite simple and you could probably learn it in a weekend or so (the hard part is the vocabulary and strange grammar functions, but even still - it's rudimentary)


https://archive.org/details/WorkbookOfCuneiformSigns1979


there's a workbook here if you wanna make your own stylus and get started


it would be great to have more english speakers with a knowledge of cuneiform as most tend to be continental (german/french) scholars

how is that better? it's hieratic script, but for traders and uneducated common people of the time


it's similar to how chinese sometimes transcribes foreign words only according to the sound and not meaning of the hanzi


the vestigial iconicity is there, but it's actually an attempt at a linear script


the later hebrew is much better as it does away with the pictograms entirely

Each letter is sensible. You can understand multiple variations of it with minimal mistakes.

So basically you made a thread to hope someone would say a dick or pussy without you having to direct them to it?
