me neither, although i totally recognize it when i hear it, thanks to my Mom and Grandma :) -- but when i was born, not considered a "good" thing to speak languages other than English in the US -- took Hungarian class at Hungarian House in Manhattan, hoo boy! some of those vowel sounds are like the combined sound of TWO Sanskrit vowels!

There's some mysterious connection between Hungarian and Finnish, so you're perhaps in some way Scandinavian.

@slugluv: does hungarian possess also all those declinations which finnish has?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm G:

Nothing mysterious. Hungarian and Finnish may go back to a common ancestor language in pre-writing times. People have been arguing that since the 19th century, but it's not 100% accepted even today. Time will tell...:

Avatar 10:05pm Snortley:

Also, Japanese and Semitic languages are related, oddly enough, so break out the Wasabi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm G:

The article I linked to gives summaries of some of the similarities, doca...
Avatar 10:06pm Snortley:

Actually, the theory of a common language is far from agreed upon by linguists.
Avatar 10:07pm doca:

certainly those languages have more differences between them than the differences between the indo-european languages
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm G:

Like I said, Snortley, time will tell :) But people have been noticing and speculating about the similarities since the 18th century... In the 1980s it was taught in garden-variety linguistics courses as a "hypothesis," unproven and subject to subsequent confirmation or refutation. It's no more pinned down either way today... But there's been a lot more theorizing in the last 20 years about pre-writing linguistic reconstruction than there was in the middle of the 20th century...
Avatar 10:12pm slugluv1313:

i just read that! re: Hungarian being related to Sumerian, Japanese, etc. -- but apparently dismissed by linguistics? hhmmm . . . the plot thickens . . . and OF COURSE some friends over the years have half-jokingly claimed that Hungarians really ARE *aliens* :)

Avatar 10:16pm Snortley:

Yes, there are linguistic remains in modern languages that can be tied to archaeological evidence. However the "evidence" of a common ancestor tongue is tenuous at best. Most of what has been found in remote linguistic connections turns out to be connected to migrations.

Avatar 10:22pm Droll:

If there is one root language, will it be called Pangean?
Avatar 10:23pm Snortley:

Unlike the ancients, we don't chisel stones much, and thanks to computers, we may leave little behind at all. Even our architecture is perishable and will be found only as heaps of brick and broken glass.

...This is not an easter egg I'm bouncing in my paw, however...

- Tolkien based a lot of his Elvish on Finnish - & their epic Kalevala influenced him - anybody didn't know. Tolkien was an Oxford Philologist - but an odd one out in those times as he put emphasis on ancient things as Literature not just Linguistics.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm G:

@Droll: The caveat is that not a few scientific linguists think there is no way to reconstruct "Proto-World," if it even existed (language could have started separately in different places, not in one place).

One major speculative hypothesis about possibly connecting Indo-European, other Eurasiatic languages, and even some other language macrofamilies, is Nostratic ("Our" human language):

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Are the Finnish Skandinavian?
...First I thot I heard that they did not relate to other Skandi.s or Germanics - but rather to Asians, possibly even Koreans.
- If one looks @ a North Polar Projection of the Globe/Earth - looking down @ the Map from over the North Pole - these things may make more sense.
- But then I've read quite different things in the FMU Comments Boards here - that it's related to Hungarian, yeah, & other little East European/former Soviet countries...
Is F.S.er Caryn Finnish? She is like - scary - w/ Languages, yes - ?!?!
...So now I wonder if what I heard was talking about the Language Finnish & not the people...hmm...or just rubbish &/or I misheard/misremember...
- Russians are more Viking than people think, no? Or Russia was settled by them? Prob/ invaded - like everywhere else...'Rus' means 'Red'.
Avatar 10:40pm Droll:

G, Geneticists are definitely able to reconstruct the ancestry of extinct plant/animal species and reason about their ages and interactions over time through just DNA. All of Google translate is done through statistical analysis of translated UN documents, those methods are also clearly very effective. The problem is probably not how to reconstruct Pangean, but the lack of written historical record for analysis to do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Genetic Science is gonna be wunna the things that rocks the 21st century like other things rocked the 20th.

As a regular user of the comment boards, please understand that I include myself in any insult in this comment, but there is truly a million-monkeys thing going on here -- given enough playlist chatter, every now and then something truly fascinating emerges. I have been fascinated lurking on this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Also, I quickly read above, "Russians are more Viking than people."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm G:

Yes, Droll, the ongoing accumulation of databases of deep-time genetic information is part of what extremely distant-time language-reconstructing linguists are working with -- above and beyond the historical sound-change reconstruction that they have used to do "comparative linguistics" and "historical linguistics"since the late 1700s.

I got my 23andme.com genetic text last year when they lowered the price to 99 bucks. I am 2.something percent neanderthal, as you can tell by the scabs on my knuckles from where they drag on the sidewalk. More recently I seem to be mostly Viking and Celtic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Compared to where, Pete - ?!?
- I think it's more about how serious anybody wants to be @ a given time
- but seems to me it's top-heavy w/ Smart Babies around here - !
...You & I may well have a different standard about that, of course!...I feel quite an uncooth unshooled hayseed hereabouts - a good %-age of the time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm G:

@Pete: Get me on a topic I know something about, and you never know what I might say. I've published on language in academic journals since the 90s, and I studied linguistics as an undergrad at U of Michigan back when it had a leading linguistics program, though I was too young and dumb to take full advantage at that time (I was more interested in literature in them days)...

@Droll: All knowledge that is now considered generally accepted and common sense started as weird speculation at some point (e.g., diseases are caused by microscopic germs, and so many other examples).

Heteroclite can become mainstream, given enough time, and actual truth that proves out. So there's hope for us weirdos.

This is a bit random but I started a bit of internet searching related to Algebra Suicide (I had listened to them years ago but had forgotten about them) and found a couple things coincidental. First, this interesting discussion by a couple writers and former WFMU DJ, www.inotherwordsmerida.com... Then, buried deep in the comments of this discussion: launch.groups.yahoo.com... someone mentioning an association with Lydia Tomkiw through Dave Mandl's friend.

- As for Comments Boards & Chatter
- I find it interesting sometimes to see the relation between the Music being played & the Tone of the Chatter. The gab may not be on-topic as far as referencing the music directly
- but they dance together...
- Music, Playlist & Comments together are not *exactly* like anything else I know of - now that I reflect on it - !...
