    Phonological rules for fee.

    Edit: *realises he is probably just confusing everyone* Read [r]→Ø / f __ e as "r is deleted between f and e." A linguistics joke that probably only Zhen Lin would get. :o:
    Ok I see now. I was just kinda extending my earlier protest...
    Given that I'm excluded from Linguist talk, Mathmo/Physci/Compsci talk, and Languages talk :shifty:
    Mods tend to warn people for not providing english translations when they speak in a foreign language... I think people on the thread should do something similar... just a bracketed brief overview)

    Ahem. Seeing as you'd just discussed missing out the 'r' it was not a massive leap (sorry Craggy :p: )

    Yeah, but if we didn't rant about our subjects, this wouldn't be Cambridge. :p: And to be fair, when I'm talking about maths, it's normally because I don't get it or because I'm helping other people to get it.

    Well, as a mathmo he presumably already knew Ø represents the empty set, making it easier to interpret [r]→Ø as r-deletion. Anyhoo, the vast majority of my linguistics talk here is just explaining things to people, but I'll endeavour to provide brackets/translations where necessary.

    Yeh I know... subject speak is kind of inevitable and necessary. Its only noticeable when it takes over two or three thread pages.

    No no, you did. When I thought you were correcting my spelling... This conversation is falling apart somewhat.

    In other news, I accidentally found a paper that supports what I'm trying to argue in my current essay using one of my favourite grammatical constructions in Japanese.

    Oh, but te-iru is so warm and bubbly. You just attach what seems to be a verb of existence to a gerund form of another verb, and bang! You have a progressive form (or sometimes perfective, there's the rub) that you can conjugate.

    Hmm. I don't know, I might have to see this in action before I could develop any true emotion towards it, and given that my Japanese knowledge stretches to "OMG, KAWAIIIIIIIIIIIIIII ^_____^", I don't think that's happening any time soon. :p:

    Ugh, I'm writing a story called "if Cambridge students were fish" in German. I can speak German perfectly well, I just can't write retarded stories. :bawling:
