Have you ever wondered of rooster onomatopoeia? Because the English version of rooster crow is so utterly fake! Just compare the audio of crowing rooster https://freesound.org/people/Sclolex/sounds/324210/ and the "cock-a-doodle-doo". Neither English "cock-a-doodle-doo", nor German 'kikeriki' or Russian /kukarʲe'ku:/ manages to achieve the faintest semblance of rooster crow. The only language I've found that does at least the rhythm(prosody?) right is Turkish: ü-ürü-üüü /yʔyryʔyː/.
I believe that the most appropriate approximation would be ugh'q'ghyrr-lurh /ʔʌɦʔqəʔ'ɦy:rlʌə:h/ (all vowels glottal).
And what spelling would you suggest?
And why do Indo-European languages(And not only those: Japanese roosters go kokekokkō.) fail to convey actual rooster crows so badly? Any guesses?

 No.19140

>>19138
Languages are limited by the types of syllables within them. There is no use for people to be able to make the same noises as a rooster. You take what you already have and make an approximation.

 No.19141

People already change the pronunciation of loan words from human languages enough. You're expecting too much of them.

Now explain to me, why the hell does something like "kre-kre" or "ケロケロ" (kerokero) become "ribbit" in English?

Thanks, I remember trying to convince sti to shut down 4chon by explaining he was running an Israeli honeypot by creating an army of anti-semites (consisting of teen boys with autism and other mental disorders) which would spam mainstream sites with "KIKE!" thereby alienating anyone sane and give the ADL a reason to exist and reinvigorate them with donations. Sti closed the site less than a day later. Frankly a few years too late to save a lot of nuts who had their lives ruined by /new/, like that 21year old manchild Smiley or that Rockerz88 guy from the UK who wound up in prison for murder.

How much do you think people are tied down by their nature and what do you think it is? To me, human nature can be boiled down to a few thing: prioritizing self-interest, duplicitous, self-justification, craving validation, pushing others down to uplift themself at every opportunity and taking the path of least resistance
These are the things I think people are naturally inclined to do when they're left to their own devices. While people can occasionally override these core behaviors, few people can do so consistently. The majority of people will always follow their nature. Those who don't either compensate for their restraint through other forms of hedonism(self-righteousness), or are actually committed to their own ideal. How hard do you think it is for somebody to be the latter? Can anybody do it, or are people only born able to do it?

The argument was that people can't be selfish becuase they are social. I pointed out that those two things aren't mutually exclusive becuase people are social out of their own interest to a large extent.
>your whole point is
That's not my point, and it's not what this thread is about. People do occasionally do random things out of empathy for others. I never said they didn't. This thread isn't about whether human nature is evil or whatever, it's about what human nature is and how easy it is for people to act against it.

well heres a problem
Can't we say anything humans often do is human nature? Like how would we even build a definition that could set the framework to determine what is and isn't.
Whenever people on the internet argue about "human nature" they all seem to have wildly differing ideas of what it is and how "humans really work"
Hmmmm… I suppose the best way I could think of defining it would be thing we do without thinking about it, like things without a premeditated analysis of WHY we are doing it, when the only thinking spared is for HOW to do it..
Hmmmm no perhaps thats a bad way to define it, idk

>Can't we say anything humans often do is human nature?
No. There's patterns. That's how you set the framework. What is constant? Look at smoking. That's both not something humans inherently do or need to do. People do have the tendency to become addicted to things that make them feel good, but the ability to resist temptation is something anybody can consistently do if they have enough self-discipline. It's in a person's best interest to avoid giving in to temptation(controlling your emotions, not abusing drugs, not procrastinating). Whether or not a tendency to be addicted is part of human nature is subjective I guess. Even then you could consider the motivation behind addiction to fall under prioritizing self-interest(which could mean feeling pleasure). It's probably one of the more extreme forms that that behavior takes.

Look at something like Communism. Human nature will not allow for a system in which each part exists to service the whole and every part is treated equally. People want more for more work. Why should doctors be given the same as factory workers? Why try to make something good if I get nothing more out of it? Why should I try at all if it makes no difference to me? Not only that, but people in, "organizational positions", will always make sure that they're more comfortable than everybody else. Some people who are passionate enough can circumvent this, but not millions of people squirming around and trying to push themselves to the top of the pile over the course of decades. It violates human nature.

I don't really know if it's harder to train self-discipline or train true selflessness. The latter is just totally irrational to me. Maybe i'm projecting, but I don't think anybody is capable of wrapping their heads around why that's something you should aspire to.

Do you see any holes in my list?

I suppose you could say cultural norms are what goes against human nature or rather controls and regulates it in a way, it determines the ideas of right and wrong.

 No.19061

>>19060
Yeah, but even cultural norms are a product of human nature to an extent. Every culture, no matter how isolated, has some things in common. Social classes, formal/informal conduct, clans, familial power structures, religion. Following rules set in place by other people is also part of prioritizing self-interest.
I guess curiosity and classifying are another part of human nature.

This is a thread for posting all the weird experiments that you think of. Here's one that I've been thinking about. A child(6-9) with few preconceived notions is given two pigs (that look similar) to raise. One as a pet, and the other as food. The way they are raised is different. The pet is kept healthy and lean while the food is fattened up. The pet has a collar with a p on it, and the food has a collar with an s on it(this part is just an arbitrary way to distinguish them from the start so it could be anything). After the pigs are fully matured, the child watches the pig raised for food be slaughtered and then eats it. What do you think their general impression of pigs would be after? (I know it's a bit messed up, but it's just pretend).

Meat's meat and a man's gotta eat.

 No.19013

>>19010
I think as long as they knew that this pig was food from the beginning he wouldn't care. Kids learn what is right from their enviroments, so if false seperations - e.g. "That's not a pig, that's pork", "that's not a girl, that's my sister", "I'm not like them, I won't die" etcetera - are forged early then they stay (on an emotional level rather than a logical one).

Read the rules. You can argue with someone at will but if you drift too far into insults, general rudeness, arguing for the sake of arguing and summerfaggotry you'll generally get the end of the hammer.
Also, please don't steer this thread into some meta offtopic talk, go to /sugg/ if you have complaints that Pretzel is a nazi.
