Why hello there, Elliott. I don't believe we've met before. I'm Gregory
Stott, CEO of Cyvval Light and Medium Industries Ltd., a completely
fictitious company that produces the best pillows and manchester the
world has ever seen.

Here, have a pillow.

And welcome back, person whom I know nothing of.

Really? Oh, whoops. I'd just like to clarify that that *did not*
happen, as I'm in my bedroom and I'm hardly going to have people
frolicking about in here.

Welcome back all the same.

Yes, quite. Are you sure you're not feeling faint there, Daffy? ;) I
know people who have thought that but collapsed within minutes of
thinking so. Apparently it's very dangerous to compliment me.

That's what we in the real world (the part that doesn't post through
Google) call a reply/quote header. You shouldn't take it personally.

Actually, I'd first just used google groups a bit - I decided to search
for &quot;Monkey Island&quot;. I found aglami, and posted there a bit - later, I
set up usenet access on my mail programme, and fiddling through the
subscribe list saw afda too. I didn't even know they were known to each
other before seeing the sites.

(And yes, the afda site IS cool :P)

I exist in my own nation comprised of the space immediatly surrounding
my body. It is called Flark. I am the only citizen, so it's communist,
sharing the resources evenly among one person. The national anthem
can't be sung in public because it contains cursing and explosions. The
national animal is Isacc Asimov in a border collie costume. The
national drink is whatever you can mix by adding together the last
drops in the bottom of evrery bottle in the house. The flag has a
picture of a half t-rex/half-mermaid creature known as a curlew-jawed
morymid surrounded by the shapes in Lucky Charms: heart stars
horseshoes and so forth. Mongooses are strictly forbidden. The national
language varies person to person, with each individual speaking a
language known only to them. So, no one expect me knows what the hell
I'm talking about. If you wish to visit Flark, you are required to
allow me to administer a series of painful vaccinations, and once
touring in Flark, are required to leave the oxygen alone, as it is
endangered and so only the natives are permitted to harm it.

Mongoose and goose have no shared etymological origin. Goose comes from

&quot;mangus&quot; which is from the Marathi language, a variation of Indian (an
in, from India). They aren't pluralized the same because they have

mongoose.

I was joking.

&gt;Mongoose and goose have no shared etymological origin.

Coz, obviously, etymology is the study of insects (I'm still joking!)

&gt;Goose comes from
&gt;the Old English &quot;gos&quot;, meaning fool.

My OED reckons its derived from Germanic origin, rather than Old
English. Maybe it went Germanic -&gt; Old English -&gt; Goose.

&gt;Mongoose comes from the word
&gt;&quot;mangus&quot; which is from the Marathi language, a variation of Indian (an
&gt;in, from India).

17th Century, aye. (according to my OED).

&gt;They aren't pluralized the same because they have
&gt;different roots, and it is pure chance that they sound the same.

Fair enough. But I'd like to say that just because two words have
different roots needn't necessarily mean that their pluralization has
to be different.

But I was joking about the mongeese. I think it'd be even more
entertaining if the plural was mongi (this, too, is a joke).

&gt;Booth
&gt;and tooth sound the same, butyou don't pluralize booth as beeth just

Uncle Lloyd, it was only a joke when you conducted nuclear tests in

Where as with &quot;tooth&quot; I stop making vocal noises for the &quot;th&quot; bit. The

Again, if I had more of a linguistical knowledge I'd be able to

&gt;
&gt; Meth? Are you about? Can you help here?

I'm about. (and not a boat, even when I do a canadiain accent).

As regards the weird plural thing - box vs ox.

currently we have this thing in the geekworld of saying &quot;boxen&quot; as a
plural for the word &quot;box&quot;. The word &quot;box&quot; is latinate in origin (buxis
via Middle English) whereas the word ox is germanic in origin (though we
really only know it as far back as Old English.

We tend to determine roots from the full morphology of a word, and as
oxen is Indo-European in plural rather than latinate in plural, we think
that it is germanic in Origin.

Here's an interesting one for you &quot;This coat of arms has symmetry - it
has 2 axes&quot;. Either the coat of arms has 2 instances of an axe showing
or it has two axes of symmetry...

Axe (or ax for the American English users) is from the Old English æx
(if you can't read that character before the x it's an ae joined
together in a diphthong). The plural of that is Axes. (why not axen?
unknown - it just is) Axis, however is latin and its plural is axes...
cool, huh?

&gt; Actually, thinking about it a bit - the standard &quot;put an 's' at the
&gt; end&quot; probably works for a vast number of cases.
Yeah - but that's boring and easy! ;-)

&gt;&gt;&gt; But I was joking about the mongeese. I think it'd be even more
&gt;&gt;&gt; entertaining if the plural was mongi (this, too, is a joke).
&gt;&gt; Maybe if it had stayed mangus, we would have mongi. Or, more likely,
&gt;&gt; mangi.

unlikely - Mange is the sole prerogative of the canine, I believe! ;-)

&gt;&gt;&gt; No, but then I don't pronounce &quot;booth&quot; and &quot;tooth&quot; the same either.
&gt;&gt; No? With the exception of the first letter, I do. Do you not? O.o
&gt; I do not.
&gt;
&gt; The difference being that when I pronounce &quot;booth&quot; I'm still making

&gt; &quot;think&quot;.

Lloyd pronounces booth with a voiced dental fricative and tooth with an
unvoiced dental fricative. It's a common feature of English dialectic
accents that voiced and unvoiced fricatives are switched, especially
with open vowels.

The reason that it is more likely with open vowels is that regional
accents mostly revolve around them rather than consonantal shifts.

He and I pronounce booth differently. I have an unvoiced dental
fricative for that. Actually the whole dental fricative thing is one of
the reasons that we should bring back the thorn (Þ) and edh (ð)
characters. it would be so much simpler for pronunciation...&lt;shrug&gt;
But an absolute nightmare for printers (the scripted thorn looks FAR too
much like an edh)

It would also make it easier to explain why &quot;ye olde chippe shoppe&quot; is
shite!&quot; and I could get away with calling my daughter (if I ever have
one) AuÞur.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Fair enough. But I'd like to say that just because two words have

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; to be different.

&gt;&gt;&gt; Doesn't make it the same either. :o)

&gt;&gt; Aye. It's part of the wonderment of linguistics and, er, convergent

&gt;&gt; education in this matter perhaps I'd be able to come up with examples
&gt;&gt; of two nouns of wildly different entymology[3] which appear to follow
&gt;&gt; the same pluralization rule.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Meth? Are you about? Can you help here?
&gt;
&gt;I'm about. (and not a boat, even when I do a canadiain accent).

Aside: I don't think I've ever heard &quot;proper&quot; canadiain accent with
the &quot;aboot&quot; thing at all. How true is it?

&gt;As regards the weird plural thing - box vs ox.
&gt;
&gt;currently we have this thing in the geekworld of saying &quot;boxen&quot; as a
&gt;plural for the word &quot;box&quot;.

Aye, but that's a silly thing isn't it. Rather than bona-fide
pluralling.

&gt;The word &quot;box&quot; is latinate in origin (buxis
&gt;via Middle English) whereas the word ox is germanic in origin (though we
&gt;really only know it as far back as Old English.
&gt;
&gt;We tend to determine roots from the full morphology of a word, and as
&gt;oxen is Indo-European in plural rather than latinate in plural, we think
&gt;that it is germanic in Origin.

Er... India is in Germany? What?


&gt;Here's an interesting one for you &quot;This coat of arms has symmetry - it
&gt;has 2 axes&quot;. Either the coat of arms has 2 instances of an axe showing
&gt;or it has two axes of symmetry...
&gt;
&gt;Axe (or ax for the American English users) is from the Old English æx
&gt;(if you can't read that character before the x it's an ae joined
&gt;together in a diphthong). The plural of that is Axes. (why not axen?
&gt;unknown - it just is) Axis, however is latin and its plural is axes...
&gt; cool, huh?

By a strange coincidence this very example came up at work the other
week. One of my colleagues came up to me and said:

&quot;Lloyd, I'll ask you this because you're bound to have written
this down a lot. How do you spell the plural of axis?&quot;

Me: &quot;Axes? It's a-x-e-s.&quot;

Them: &quot;That's what I thought. But it's the same as 'more than one
axe'. Weird&quot;

Me: &quot;Yeah.&quot;


Bizarrely, or not, despite their homography to my mind they're not
homophonic. The difference kinda being:

&quot;One axis, several axeeez&quot;
&quot;One axe, several ax-uz&quot;


&gt;&gt; Actually, thinking about it a bit - the standard &quot;put an 's' at the
&gt;&gt; end&quot; probably works for a vast number of cases.
&gt;Yeah - but that's boring and easy! ;-)

:-P

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; But I was joking about the mongeese. I think it'd be even more
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; entertaining if the plural was mongi (this, too, is a joke).
&gt;&gt;&gt; Maybe if it had stayed mangus, we would have mongi. Or, more likely,
&gt;&gt;&gt; mangi.
&gt;
&gt;unlikely - Mange is the sole prerogative of the canine, I believe! ;-)

mange
n. a skin disease of mammals caused by parasitic mites and
occasionally comminucable to humans, typically causing severe itching
and hair loss.

Presumably the parasitic mites are mangers.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; No, but then I don't pronounce &quot;booth&quot; and &quot;tooth&quot; the same either.
&gt;&gt;&gt; No? With the exception of the first letter, I do. Do you not? O.o
&gt;&gt; I do not.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; The difference being that when I pronounce &quot;booth&quot; I'm still making
&gt;&gt; the noise associated with the &quot;oo&quot; with my vocal chords whilst making
&gt;&gt; the &quot;th&quot; mouth-shape. If that makes sense. It's a bit like humming,
&gt;&gt; but instead of humming a &quot;mmmm&quot; I'm humming a &quot;th&quot;. ish.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Where as with &quot;tooth&quot; I stop making vocal noises for the &quot;th&quot; bit. The
&gt;&gt; &quot;th&quot; sound is merely the sound of air passing around the shape of my
&gt;&gt; mouth/tongue/teeth.

&lt;snip&gt;

&gt;Lloyd pronounces booth with a voiced dental fricative and tooth with an
&gt;unvoiced dental fricative.

That's the bunny.

&gt;It's a common feature of English dialectic
&gt;accents that voiced and unvoiced fricatives are switched, especially
&gt;with open vowels.

So you're saying it's because I'm from East Anglia that makes I tork
funny? ;)

&gt;The reason that it is more likely with open vowels is that regional
&gt;accents mostly revolve around them rather than consonantal shifts.

Ooh.

&gt;He and I pronounce booth differently. I have an unvoiced dental
&gt;fricative for that. Actually the whole dental fricative thing is one of
&gt;the reasons that we should bring back the thorn (Þ) and edh (ð)
&gt;characters. it would be so much simpler for pronunciation...&lt;shrug&gt;
&gt;But an absolute nightmare for printers (the scripted thorn looks FAR too
&gt;much like an edh)

So dental fricatively speaking, what's the difference between a thorn
and an edh? Presumably one is voiced and the other isn't?

I'm guessing from the footnote, that the edh is unvoiced.

&gt;It would also make it easier to explain why &quot;ye olde chippe shoppe&quot; is
&gt;shite!&quot; and I could get away with calling my daughter (if I ever have
&gt;one) AuÞur.

I've notta sausage of an idea how that'd be pronounced.

&gt;Með[1]
&gt;[1]See what I did there? I crack me up sometimes! ;-)

Hah!

&gt; &gt;&gt; Hard to tell, sometimes.
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; Yeah, I know what you mean there.
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;&gt; I usually use my social HTML tags to

&gt; &gt;&gt; &lt;sarcasm&gt;Nice hair.&lt;/sarcasm&gt;
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; What are you saying about my hair? ;)
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;&gt; Anyways, I really have had to explain mongooses to a ridiculous number
&gt; &gt;&gt; of people. And once had to explain that they're not weasles. They're
&gt; &gt;&gt; actually a closer relative to cats.
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; That doesn't surprise me (that a mongoose is more nearly a cat than a
&gt; &gt; weasel), strangely. I wonder why that might be.
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Mongoose and goose have no shared etymological origin.
&gt; &gt;&gt;&gt; Coz, obviously, etymology is the study of insects (I'm still joking!)
&gt; &gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt;&gt; That's bugology. :)
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; LOL!
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Goose comes from
&gt; &gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; the Old English &quot;gos&quot;, meaning fool.
&gt; &gt;&gt;&gt; My OED reckons its derived from Germanic origin, rather than Old
&gt; &gt;&gt;&gt; English. Maybe it went Germanic -&gt; Old English -&gt; Goose.
&gt; &gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt;&gt; Then it technically still came from Old English, eh? ;) Same way we say
&gt; &gt;&gt; milk comes from the cow. Techinically it comes from the grass the cow
&gt; &gt;&gt; eats, which came from...etc. But we round up to the cow. ;)
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; Yeah. Certainly. You get some germanic grass, feed it to a round old

I sound like....a Canadian of the type who hasn't got a French or
martitime accent...but not. I sort of accidentally incorporate other
regional ways of speaking into my own, by no intentional act of mine.
Like, if I say, &quot;What was that about?&quot;, &quot;what&quot;, &quot;was&quot;, and particularly
(I'm told by Americans) &quot;about&quot; sound Canadian, while my &quot;that&quot; sounds
a bit Irish...somehow.

I read somewhere that when Canadians talk, they turn the end of every
sentance up like a question. I live in southern Ontario, but I've never
heard anyone do that, even after I read it and started listening for
it. But then I had a thought: I talk weird in the first place (see
above) and myself and everyone I've been listening to live only a half
hour from the Canada/USA border. We probably talk more like Americans
than your aveage Canadian does and so, hence the lack of upturned
sentences. So I started listening to a friend I have who moved here
only a short time ago from...uh...Nova Scotia, I think. I forgot.
Somewhere like that. Anyways, I listened, and he does turn his
sentances up. I first heard it when he said, intended as statements
(the / indicates where it turns up like a question):
&quot;You're /evil. I love /it. That's awe/some.&quot;

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Yes, we need to get more Þ's and ð's!
&gt;&gt;&gt; Yeah! It's not like the icelandic have copyright on ð or þ or that
&gt;&gt;&gt; sort of stuff!

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Hurg.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; hurg - Sound a Dutch male makes when he is embarrassed or
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; distressed,
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; usually by reference to his sex life.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; e.g., Pixel: &quot;We were in a tent.&quot; Sarah: &quot;Kinky.&quot; Pixel: &quot;Hurg.&quot;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Me thinks you got some issues here, Pixel...
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Where did you find that!?
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Pseudopedia or somesuch. My mind is like a sieve ... a beautiful,
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; dangerous cooking utensil.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Like a pencil?
&gt;&gt;&gt; He's obviously referring to a spork.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; They have groups for that, now, you know.
&gt;
&gt; Spork appreciation groups?

Yes!
