Why try

Why cry?

That was a highly disturbing conversation though

I also think I’ve heard my heart and my self-esteem break into one thousand pieces (for the second time in a week…)

Talking about this ‘prosody depends on syntax’ paradigm… I actually believe the contrary to be true.

I we feel safe to admit that language is a communicative tool then we must also admit that all levels are tools that serve this communicative need, and hence is Information Structure that sets all the possible interfaces a language could be using in order to execute all of his communicative tasks.

Language is the way it is so that we can use it in order to communicate, otherwise there would be no common language in a set of people. We would all be speaking different languages and we wouldn’t be able to communicate. Of course there are idiolects, but that’s another story…

Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, who were both awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for “their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”

Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by Taliban gunman in 2012 for advocating for girls’ rights to education. She survived and became a leading spokesperson for the education of girls all over the world. At 17 year old, Yousafzai is the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Kailash Satyarthi dedicated his life to rescuing children from slavery when he was 26 years old. Now 60 years old, Satyarthi continues to lead raids on factories that exploit children, and is at the forefront of the global movement to end child slavery and child labor.

The Nobel Committee, who announced the decision on October 10, noted that it “regards it as an important point for a Hindu [Satyarthi] and a Muslim [Yousafzai], an Indian and a Pakistani, to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism.”

latin is like a toga: it looks very authoritative and regal from the outside, but there are all sorts of ridiculous twists and turns underneath that make the whole thing work, and if you work your way through all of them and manage to figure out the logic behind it all, underneath you’ll mostly find dicks

Hahahahah
