Today was my last day of Japanese class before the winter break. I have to review counters, numbers, kanji, and katakana. I also have to go up to lesson 10 in my JLPT N3 book, write a few explanatory pieces on whatever I choose, and read articles/novels (Harry Potter) in Japanese. This should be fun!!
Let it go (French Version) by Anais Delva
I’ve been listening to this every day since I saw Frozen, it’s just so gorgeous! The Italian version is also beautiful.
I wrote an article for The Toast on the phonological constraints that allow you to identify Bandicoot Cumbersnatch, Bendandsnap Candycrush, and even Wimbledon Tennismatch as synonyms for the same long-faced British actor, by analyzing all of the names from the Benedict Cumberbatch name generator.
You should go read it there first to see what the constraints are and how I got them, and then come back here for a bonus in-depth investigation into how we can model them using constraint rankings loosely inspired by Harmonic Grammar (don’t worry if you don’t know what that is).
Hi, most of my Vietnamese friends who I talk to are from the South, but the main book I use teaches the Northern dialect. So both, but I guess I’m focusing more on the Southern dialect right now. :)
I decided to focus on Italian this time.
