Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
I finally got a possible job lead! It’s at an all-day preschool at a church in town. I’m going to get an application tomorrow and hopefully leave a good impression with the director. Fingers crossed!
Buzz Lightyear’s knee is bent.
One of the little boys I keep has this Buzz Lightyear doll (or at least a huge one like it that talks and karate chops). This kid swore up and down that his Buzz was THE Buzz, and he was really talking TO HIM. So he wasn’t connecting his constant button-smashing with Buzz’s constant kung-fu action. He would squeeze the doll, Buzz would yell and chop the little boy in the face, little boy would cry and beg Buzz to stop. This went on all night, because he didn’t dare put Buzz down because it was obviously THE REAL BUZZ LIGHTYEAR.
Morphological Typology (illustrations from SpecGram)
Descriptions adapted from The Lingua File:Analytic languages: also known as isolating languages because they’re composed of isolated, or free, morphemes. Free morphemes can be words on their own, such as cat or happy. Languages that are purely analytic in structure don’t use any prefixes or suffixes, ever. However, it’s rare to find a language that is purely analytic or synthetic since most languages have characteristics of both. Morphological typology is like a spectrum in which languages fit in somewhere from analytic to polysynthetic (a subtype of synthetic languages we’ll get to in a moment).Types of synthetic language (i.e. languages that have prefixes/suffixes):Fusional Languages: Similar to agglutinating languages, except that the morpheme boundaries are much more difficult to discern. Affixes are often fused with the stems, and can have multiple meanings. A prime example of a fusional language is Spanish, especially when it comes to verbs. In the wordhablo ”I speak”, the -o morpheme tells us that we’re dealing with a subject that is singular, first person, and in the present tense. It’s difficult to find a morpheme that means “speak”, however, since habl- is not a morpheme. Fusional languages can be tricky!Polysynthetic Languages: These languages are undoubtedly some of the most difficult to learn. They often have verbs that can express the entirety of a typical sentence in English, which they do by incorporating nouns into verbs forms. For example, the Sora language of India has one word that means “I will catch a tiger”. Many Native American languages are polysynthetic.
This is so cool!
