Well done! But one question: are your interests listed in Ascending or Descending order of geekiness? :))) --Cheers, IJzeren Jan 22:22, 13 May 2005 (PDT)
- I shall retain a dignified silence on that on, I think! ;o) Deiniol 06:25, 14 May 2005 (PDT)
Articles corrections in Bohemia file
Oh, that was disastrous... how does English-speaker feel reading a slavo-english text without articles? :) Jan II.
- FWIW, I'm used to listening to Slavo-Dutch without articles every day! I think it's kinda cute. :) But seriously now, you shouldn't feel bad about that, Jan. IB is an international project, and English is the lingua franca here, nothing more. Every participant whose native language is English understands that there are other participants with other native languages, and luckily for us they are more than happy to correct our writings. --IJzeren Jan 01:35, 15 Jun 2005 (PDT)
- Heh, nowhere near as bad as you would reading my pathetic attempts at Czech, Jan! And like IJzeren Jan says, don't feel bad about it- we can all understand, just think of addition of articles as a minor spelling correction! Deiniol 02:50, 15 Jun 2005 (PDT)
Lla Ffoil Brif
Wow man, you did quite a job! I thought of doing it, too, but I'm glad that someone else did it first. Now let's see what Andrew thinks of it... I, for one, am impressed! Cheers, IJzeren Jan 12:12, 19 Aug 2005 (PDT)
- Well, this is the Ill Bethisad wiki, so it just seemed wrong to not have a Brithenig front page as it was Brithenig which kicked it all off. Now all we need is to nag Padraig into doing the Kerno and maybe Geoff to do the Breathanach and we'll have the first four IBlangs represented! Deiniol 12:41, 19 Aug 2005 (PDT)
- Hehe, I agree of course! You heard him, Padraic? --IJzeren Jan 05:49, 20 Aug 2005 (PDT)
wikification of Kemper
Thank you, good sir. BoArthur
- De nada, hombre. Deiniol
twywsocs...or however it's spelled....
It's fixed, sorry, thought it was a lost redirect.
- Yay! Thanks :)
You won't believe it, but just at the same moment when you were working on a Celtic template, I was working on the very same thing too (same colour, even)! Just for fun, here it is:
|Gaulish, Lepontic, Galatian, Noric||Brythonic||Ivernic
|Arvorec||Manoeg||Gaeilg (Old, Middle, New)|
Now compare this with yours:
Yours is of course the better one! :) But just curious: what happened to Noric, Galatian, Pictish and Ivernic? --IJzeren Jan 05:57, 10 November 2005 (PST)
- To be wholly honest- I couldn't be bothered to put them in the table, as they're so minor (and the status of some of them as separate languages is debatable) :P Deiniol 14:10, 10 November 2005 (PST)
The question on Persian script
I have finally got the computer out of the service of Real Work and the clutches of the kids long enough t6o read the Persia article carefully. My comments (mostly onomastic/terminological nitpicks I'm afraid) will hopefully be forthcomming on Talk:Persia tomorrow. -- In the meantime I'd like to have a stab at the question how and why modern Persian *there* may be written in Avestan script, if you don't mind. BPJ 11:58, 5 December 2005 (PST)
- Go for it! That would be great. Deiniol 15:25, 5 December 2005 (PST)
Persian script proposal
I have written a new proposal on Persian script. Hopefully this will lead to the dispute tag being removed. Please leave your comments at Talk:Persian. Description of the modern writing system is to follow. BPJ 06:32, 12 December 2005 (PST)
Have you got anything more in mind when it comes to the Isle of Man? Your page on Manoeg is good, but there isn't a page of the Isle of Man. Would it be Indipendent, would it be Kemrese, would it be like the Armorican Isles? Would it be an An Graveth nation, one of the last Celtic countries? Or something else? --Quentin 04:47, 24 February 2006 (PST)
- If you read the Kemr article, the Isle of Man is an autonomous province of the High Kingdom of Kemr, with its own parliament. I think both Manoeg and Brethanach (or something like that) is spoken there. --Sikulu 05:22, 24 February 2006 (PST)
- The Isle of Man isn't my manor, it's Pavel Iosad's. As far as I'm aware the project is dormant. However, there's a fair bit which is QSS about Man- as Sikulu says it's an Autonomous Province of Kemr. While Cravethism is making inroads into most of *there*'s Celtic countries as a popular minority religion, I'm willing to bet that Man is predominantly Catholic still.

Thanks for the offer Deiniol. Based on my research, Norman is indeed a big source of patois words in Quebec french so I would appreciate your input.
Because I don't want Laurentian to simply be french with different words, I'd like to see if I can introduce in it some grammatical rules that are different from Francian (but historicaly present in other langues d'oil). Right now what I have are:
- presence of a "tsi" particule after the verb when asking a yes/no question: y'en veu-tsi ? [does he want some ?].
- use of the "on" pronoun as second person plural.
- absence of the vouvoyement.
- presence of a "impersonal" person (3rd person singular without pronoun): Fas frette (its cold [here])
- Adjective cannot be place before the noun to place the emphasis on it. Rather, ajective have a specific emplacement (before or after).
So apart from these, would you know of any unusual grammatical rules ?
--Marc Pasquin 16:45, 7 March 2006 (PST)
- Hmm. Well, some interesting things about Normand:
- "jé" is used for both singular and plural- j'pâle I speak, j'pâlons we speak.
- the 3rd person "impersonal" (the equivalent of Francien on) is nou
- adjectives denoting colours always precede the noun.
- the "passé simple" is still in common use: i' natchî for il est né.
- I'll have a look through my books this afternoon and find out some more stuff. Deiniol 02:57, 8 March 2006 (PST)
