Re: Missing Words, Words You Think We Should Have

[...] I didn't see this answered so pardon if someone has. One of the ways (which would solve my problem) is that the opposite of anything is created by adding 'mal' to the front of the base word. So, 'bona' is 'good' and 'malbona' is 'bad' therefore I could take the word 'miraklo' (miracle) and cr...

Re: Other Languages You've Studied

I know Turkish and English (Native, parents were Turkish immigrants), I can speak and read to a certain degree in Russian (typing is a pain, though), I know esperanto to a great extent, I've tried to pick up a few scattered languages for fun like Danish (I know very little) and Diné Bizaad. That is ...

Re: "correct" pronounciation of 'hostel'

So it'd seem that Hostel would have a 'correct pronunciation' in the same way that Meter/Metre would have a 'correct spelling'. I use /ˈhɑstəl/ and /hoˈtɛl/ as well. Use whatever you are most comfortable with, and unless the person is hard of hearing they'll comprehend.

Re: Faux amis and/or false cognates

Turkish > English
Ben - I am
Dört *sounds like 'Dirt')- 4
Bir (sounds like beer) - 1

I can't really think of obvious ones like those off the top of my head....

Looking through some websites I stumbled upon a proposal to switch to Hexadecimal and had English word proposals for the normal and cardinal numbers.C twelve /twelfth,D draze / drazeth, E eptwin/ eptwinth, F fim/fimth, 10 tex/texth. Had alot of other stuff like that. I though it was rather cool, but...

Re: Learning Hexadecimal

1AF3 stands for 3+F*16+A*256+1*4096=3+15*16+10*256+4096. So F3 would be 3+15*16? And 1A would be 10*256+4096 in the place it is in? Oh, I got it if there was a 1 in front of the 1 it'd be 3+15*16+10*256+4096+65536 or 72435 10 and say BEEF equals 15+14*16+14*256+11*4096 or 48879 10 ? I think I got th...

Learning Hexadecimal

Hexadecimal has been interesting me for a while, can any of you pull out a useful link to learn Hexadecimal? This would be the right place to ask a question like that, right?

Re: Missing Words, Words You Think We Should Have

''But speaking of y'all: I had one native Southerner (USA) tell me she used "y'all" as singular and "all y'all" as plural. Can anyone else back this up, or is she an outlier?'' All you all? That sounds odd, but if she told you she used it like that she did, but I don't think ther...

Re: Missing Words, Words You Think We Should Have

" Apparently Altaic languages make a distinction between inclusive "we" (including the addressee) and exclusive "we" (excluding the addressee)." Like ''we' versus 'Ya'll/ you all'. In turkish you will see 'You all' more often than you will use 'you' in conversation. Als...
