Newest pet peeve: library staffers who can't tell the difference between Spanish and Portuguese.

What about telling apart Castilian Spanish and Catalan?

Catalan doesn't do final -o on its masculine nouns, has <ç>, and doesn't break VL *ɛ ɔ.

The Romance languages are pretty easy to tell apart, honestly. I think something like Danish vs. Norwegian would be harder than any of the Romance pairings, and if you wanted to tell, say, Arabic from Persian you'd need a crash course in an entirely new alphabet.

It's easy to tell Nynorsk from Danish/Bokmal since it has <ei> everywhere, but I don't know if there's a way to tell Danish and Bokmal apart.

Please, please tell me you don't think symptoms aren't categorizable by the individual to condition X Y or Z when the symptoms of said conditions are fairly different?

Since of course I don't have enough to deal with starting classes, trying my damnedest to not fail at working a job whose conditions hit many of my worse triggers and my friends moving over an hour away (which combined with the shifts I'm working means I don't know if I'll ever have a chance to get together with them – note that until it got vetoed by a girlfriend we were in fact planning on moving in together), now for no reason I can find my room literally smells like someone or something took a dump in it (which for the record did not happen, at least as far as I know).

I don't think even Danes and Norwegians know a way.

… and the haunting feeling of academic inadequacy.

Seriously, though, how am I supposed to argue anything in just some 3 pages :\

Besides, MLA style page formatting looks terrible. Those ragged left margins, ew. Their prescriptions seem to stem from the time when you still wrote your shit on a typewriter. Because it makes sense there.

So i recently realized IPA Zounds is dead... this both means i hadn't conlanged in a long time, and also that all things are fleeting and get washed away by time. I feel like someone being told that their old neighbourhood is now parking space for a shopping mall.

Which brilliant Anki coder decided to alphabetize Greek words with rough breathings seperately from those with smooth?

Zounds was dead from the start. It used a shitty feature model by default and was totally useless if you didn't want to worry about using features.

Yeah, but at least it had a GUI and parsed IPA natively... and it was tailor-made for my purposes, which generally consist on telling a RWG to make a few thousand strings in IPA and then fiddle around with a few sound changes until the resulting product sounds nice.

Oh, well, at least there's still the one that zompist made... if i need something more complicated i'll have to explore GUIless stuff. which i mean, is perfectly fine but i'm too much of a non-coder to be comfortable with.

I've never looked for more than 5 minutes at SCAs, GUI or no. I'm trying to get ready to use Morrígan's, though. I'm completely sure I'm missing applying parts of SCs in Ker Salanjan (and probably Anaşali too, but those I'll likely end up exceptioning just 'cause it's so much more complete). Having never done this, I'm handwringing and out of my element altogether. But I'm trying to try it (eat your heart out, Yoda!)
