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?

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?

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.

I don't even know what kind of meme is this. This imageboard is slow as fuck, and practically a walking body. Then some heat developed on the yndd board and everybody is losing its shit over it. Even sei said to tone it down, over literally nothing. And you have this shefedora complaining about him not being censoring enough.

What's the deal with this site? It's even more of a safespace than tumblr at this point.

I feel like what you guys want is just a board of Yes-Men that won't even dare to raise their tone even a bit.

Social interactions=//=Society

Just that makes your whole tryhard dishonest wall of text worthless.

I was talking about social interactions and treating them as such, as in how capable you are of interactions, societal problems, politics and which race commits more crimes is a completely different thing.

You changed your script by talking about why the crime rates matter, and accuse me of doing the same thing, do you want to be racist that badly?

This isn't the place for that, whatever you do, please struggle a lot, try very hard, in the end of the day that is the truth and won't change, you still lose friendo.

Alright you seem to be having some difficulties following this conversation. I'll walk you through it.
You implied it wasn't acceptable to be racist since it would be having the same level of reasoning for social interaction as a donkey.
Then I showed you that it is not only acceptable, but a good thing since it can statistically save your life due to current day crime statistics.
Then you started to try to move the goalpost and focus the debate on whether I was refering to society, social situations or whatever.
Then you had a mental breakdown and kept ignoring everything else and declared every other argument worthless because in your little brain you're pretending it still was unclear whether I was refering to social interations, society, or whatever. As if that was relevant to the debate of the validity of racism as a whole.
Keep up the strawman.

Lock this thread please. The creation of this thread was already pointless as it is (and it's on the wrong board), I haven't seen OP reply in a while & these pointless unhealthy arguments that end in nothing good are spawning up despite the original reasoning behind these threads presumably being solved under the new owner. Yes, the board has gotten some tumors there and there but chemo was thankfully applied, end of the story. Just please don't spread more stuff when the issue was already discussed and (solved).
