  • 5:43 Language Thing Of The Day: Transitivity
  • 34:55 Question 1: Are accents predictable? That is, there are specific accents people have based on the languages they have learned, and often these have specific-enough features to have stereotypes. But would a native speaker of Parisian French have the stereotypical “French accent” when speaking English even if they had grown up in a cultural vacuum or learned English from a book? Further, if this is predictable like this, is it sufficient to predict the accent a native speaker of Quenya or Lojban might have when they were learning English the first time?
  • 51:37 Question 2: Have you noticed people using [ts] instead of [t] at the beginning of words, and why might that happen?
  • 1:04:34 Question 3: How do songs in tonal languages work? How do the speakers distinguish between the melody and the tone?
  • 1:13:01 The puzzler: Change one letter each in the names of two rival NFL teams to get synonyms for the name of a third NFL team

Covered in this episode:

  • Transitivity vs. intransitivity and ergative vs. accusative verbs
  • Why you can give a mouse a cookie but you cannot sleep a sandwich
  • Standard phonological mistakes
  • A rat whose name is not Cheese-teeth
  • Political allegiances of the Noldor
  • Too vs. tsoo and Tuesday vs. Tyuesday vs. Chewsday
  • English is a tonal language
  • “Trash” and “ashtray” are (we hope) not the names of beverages
