Re: noun adjective order cross-linguistically

In English, the unmarked order for adjectives, when the adjective is modified by something starting with a preposition, is actually after nouns: a warrior worthy of his attention, a woman pleasant to talk to, a book easy to read. That's certainly a grammatical construction, but I wouldn't call it u...

As a North American - specifically, Canadian - I also use [æ] in both cases, but I only actually pronounce the vowel in 'can' if it is at the beginning or end of an utterance. Medially, I drop the vowel and syllabiciz...

By what measure is someone's guilt "super obvious"? There are certainly cases out there where someone was convicted of something big like murder and put in jail, and everyone though it was "super obvious" at the time, but then later developments show that the convicted was actually innocent.

Killing someone is permanent. If it's later determined that the person was innocent, then we killed an innocent goddamn person for no reason.
