More people believing something absurd doesn't make it less absurd. Besides, the FlyingRedSportscar's webpage about his ideas might actually convince more people than the FlatAssembler's webpages about his ideas.

I think I've been clear in both discussions about my position.
You can also look at mainstream published research: lots of historical reconstruction, very little serious work on phonosemantics. Interpret as you wish.

So, Daniel, you said elsewhere that it doesn't matter much whether FlatAssembler's ideas about the Croatian toponyms are right or not because he is at least doing linguistics and learning something. Do you think the same about FlyingRedSportscar? If not, why? To me, the FlatAssembler's thesis and the FlyingRedSportscar's thesis sound about as absurd.

Historical Linguistics / Re: Characters for Khmer Vowels

If nobody here knows, you could try the linguistics stackexchange, where I think some occasional users know the history of Khmer.

The website is now back up.   I was hoping to keep it offline 'til version 2.0 was ready to be released *wink*, however I think it's better that something stays up for now.

Historical Linguistics / Characters for Khmer Vowels
« Last post by kiragecko on December 09, 2017, 08:00:27 PM »
I mostly focus on the Angkorian period, and I'm confused with how Angkorian vowels line up with modern ones. When the Middle Khmer sound shift happened, 'u' and 'o' seem to have been conflated into one symbol. Did the original 'u' symbol just disappear? I can't find any modern vowels that look similar.
It just seems weird to drop a vowel and then make a bunch of new ones, instead of reusing the old vowel for something else.

You might be talking of chiasmus, though that's not really a linguistic term.

Linguist's Lounge / Linguistic term
« Last post by Badgerwatch on December 05, 2017, 11:32:31 AM »
Hi all, I wonder if anybody could help. I cannot remember the linguistic term for the technique of reversing the phrase.
Example: one for all and all for one.

Does anyone know what it is called?
Thanks.
