Re: And we're back again, better than ever!

It is definitely a https problem - Google's links contain that s, but if you remove it from the failed lookup page then the relevant page turns up. The question is when (or whether) the search machines will rediscover the site by themselves and return us to their pages with updated links.

Re: Iversen's second multiconfused log thread

I would have written something about some text collections in Albanian and Greek which I have produced and partly read, but then I wrote a long tirade about wordlists instead (in the thread "About Iversen wordlists"), so now I'm more inclined to do some more studying than I am to writing a...

Re: About Iversen word lists

I didn't see Atinkoriko's questions before now (where I checked the situation concerning Google search results for the forum after the recent debâcle), but better later than never - and please remember that I just have proposed a method which others may use in other ways than those that function for...

Re: Jeff's language log

You shouldn't worry too much about the distance. Just buy a cheap abo to all public transport for the whole week. In Berlin most of us could stay in the building where the activities took place, which definitely is the best situation, but since that isn't possible in Bratislava just remember that th...

Re: Writing

I write my contributions here in the intended language, but in some cases first as an alpha (in Word) or beta (in the forum) version, and then I look things up to make the final version. Considering the number of errors I make in some languages I should probably do this for ALL texts in those langua...

Re: And we're back again, better than ever!

I went through all pages of my log, and pictures with problems were strewn here and there over over it, not just in the newest section. The damage was also rather peculiar - it looks as if the pictures are rendered in several layers, and the rendering of the last layer -which accounted for one base ...

Re: How do you treat different dialects and accents in your TL?

I don't really try to stick to a single dialect - i the case of Scots and Platt I trreat them as languages. The reason is that my input is mixed and I don't intend to change that situation.

Re: Iversen's second multiconfused log thread

My Croatian has clearly become even more rotten this spring, where I have spent more time on music than on languages. I'll close read the corrections later, but first I think I'll spend some time on replacing the damaged images in this thread. EDIT 20:03: and that took a couple of hours, but luckily...

Re: And we're back again, better than ever!

Thanks for getting the forum back on its feet. I can see that some of the pictures have been damaged, but apart from that it doesn't seem that we have lost anything much. And hopefully we may now even avoid some of the delays that plagued the forum in its previous location.

Re: The Polyglot Gathering, Bratislava 2017

I have spent (wasted) so much time on music the last couple of months that I won't have time to add Slovak. With a bit of luck (and some hitherto missing strength of will) I may be able to find time to rebrush my Latin and some other Slavic languages and prepare my lecture about the mess known as th...
