Re: Kozea Daily - Shitty movies in a conlang

Woop, woop! Episode 17 out! It's back to Sēonkêrā Hwōistām! This is a slightly odd one, though, and the title lies. Sēonkêrā does not show up in this one, though Erik did edit in the music. However, there is a guest! Also, 1080p again! [<3] http://i.imgur.com/IGKYpOo.png http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Re: Kozea Daily - Shitty movies in a conlang

The book's not so obvious, and can be construed as an easter egg or injoke. But the thing is, I didn't notice any cars or video game consoles, but I did notice the signs because of the way you framed the shot - it was in a prominent foreground position. It's not a major criticism, just something to...

Re: Kozea Daily - Shitty movies in a conlang

Oh, well, why not? There's a book with a very obvious English title, too, after all, and I put it there intentionally, because I thought you guys would enjoy seeing such a book in the clip. There's a car in the distance in one shot too, and my conworld doesn't have those either. Or gaming consoles, ...

Re: Kozea Daily - Shitty movies in a conlang

impressed at the quality, but you switch too quickly between creepy and comic with the music. Yes, perhaps. We did some continuity mistakes when shooting, so I had to cut a couple of takes shorter than they were supposed to be. and i reckon you should have covered up the swedish signs with your con...

Apparently there is a marshmallow in IKEA called GODIS SKUM (sweet foam?). A hit with the militant atheists, lol.

Re: English swearwords in other languages

But it's not "sex", it's sechs . Which is pronounced [sɛks] when you're an English monoglot schoolboy looking for excuses to say rude words to your German teacher. …and [zɛks] otherwise. Which is so close to the English word, as is 'sex', that I fail to see the humour in it. Of course, I also fail ...

Re: Things you love or hate about language textbooks

1. The usual: a detailed description of pronunciation using IPA , that includes a fair description of allophones, even across words. I both agree and disagree in equal measure. IPA is just not useful for many people, because it's another thing that has to be learned. If the manner of transcribing s...

Re: Is "like" becoming a topic/object marker in English?

To me it just feels like the speaker is insecure and can't just state straight facts, but has to add this marker of incomplete certainty. A little bit on the verge of a subjunctive or what ever to call it. It is often accompanied by further insecurity markers, such as 'or something'. Personally, I (...

Re: How do languages deal with distinctions like watch/see?

While it's perfectly fine to "watch/look on TV" in Swedish (kolla, titta, glo, et c.), "see on TV" (se) is fine too, and not at all uncommon. I don't think either verb would be used without a preposition, though. One will "listen to/on music" (lyssna), but to "hear music" (höra) is distinctive in th...
