Quote/Info Dump: Two Spirits Among Algonquians

[h3]Fr. Jacques Marquette[/h3]
JR 59: pp 128-29
[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Marquette]Father Jacques Marquette[/url] was an important early Jesuit missionary to New France. He was apparently the first(?) observer to mention the two-spirit custom in New France, describing it among the Illinois and Sioux in 1674:

dhoklang scratchpad...3.0? NP: Bosporan (2017-10-23 04:18:08)
:Decided "cow" is not irregular; strong stem [i]*gʷow[/i] generalized, and Brugmann's + Szerémenyi's yielded a uniform stem [i]ⲕⲟⲩ-[/i].
"Water" ([b]ⲡⲟⲩⲧⲉⲣ[/b]) shows an irregular singular paradigm. The nom./acc./voc. shows the reflex of [i]*wódṛ[/i]; elsewhere the oblique stem [i]*uden-[/i] appears.
'Earth' shows a highly irregular paradigm. Note that the instrumental continu...

Bosporan (spoken in Crimea and the Krasnodar area, not the area around Constantinople) is attested over a time period spanning about 1200 years in numerous texts and inscriptions; it is about as well-attested as Tocharian. Two main stages are attested: [i]Old Bosporan[/i], written with the Greek alphabet, from about 400 BC to around 150 AD. A relative lull of about two centurie...

dhoklang scratchpad...3.0? NP: Bosporan (2017-10-22 19:39:00)
The usual story: three genders, seven cases (nom/gen/acc/dat/ins/loc/voc), and several declensions. The dual is retained in that most things that come in pairs have a nominative/accusative/vocative plural deriving from the dual, and this ending also appears on any noun when it is modified by [b]ⲍⲟⲩ[/b] 'two'.
Our masculine paradigm is [b]ⲡⲓⲉⲭⲟⲥ[/b] 'wolf'.

<Cevf> I mean I understand the part that defines citizenship
<Cevf> But the main part of it I don't get
<Cevf> because it basically says, like, "You have to obey the rest of the laws written in the Constitution"
<Cevf> because apparently that wasn't clear before?
<Slereah> Maybe it's a state law thing?
<Cevf> Yes it is but that's my point
