On the line of Internal language unawareness, I found a word that has “th”, but not a [θ] sound.
Not often does a State one-up the feds and the rest of the 50+5, but Pennsylvania did that many years ago and on to the present.
Despite the first idea posted for this blog being bad interfaces, I only just now got to add a search function to it! It is in the header at the end of the page list and only shows up there. I suggest looking for something for the fun of it.
I am thinking of a word, universally admitted to be English, that has the letters S and H together, but which is never pronounced as if it contains the [ʃ] phoneme.
I just noticed, the favicon that Outlook.com uses when you are logged in is now some flatter colorful thing. I do not know if that is good or bad. Watch that space?
I have not abandoned the blogging, but have been very busy with the volunteering and work. What a change from the bad old times at the previous agencia. This one is enjoyable and entertaining (often) and ultimately useful to me because I can be useful to it in its purpose.
I do have ideas and pictures and things, I just need the time and memory to put them here.
I decided to go back to the old photographs of older library matter from “college days”. Here is something I found entertaining from the July 19, 1919 Literary Digest.
Markdown isn’t functioning for me, so some footnotes are lost.
So Lois posted something involving moss, so I had to post this and get it out of my web Browser.
Along with the infamous at the time pranque, 6 years before a different scandal happened at the Indiana College. This time it was the students who were on the right side of the line, in my opinion.
I have been using the best YouTube video I know of for sound testing when I plug in my speaker-monitors: cz3DEStqO-U – entituled, “Dale annoying Squirrely the broody hen“. I do not know the breeds, but the white broody “Squirrely” has the most interesting complaint voice.
I had a broody hen, I don’t remember her breed, who would make this sound that had a glottal stop in it. I think that is what you would call it. Anyway, this hen’s vocalization is very worthy of record.
Bonus: listen closely during the intermission when “Dale” stares at the lens. You can hear someone in the distance: “What are you doing in there?”
