Re: Latin Speaking Velocity

I don't know if any of the Indian languages distinguish vowel lengths. Sanskrit distinguishes between three vowel lengths hrasva, dirgha and pluta. It is explained as the length of time of the sound of a bird that says oe oee oeee or in terms of matras, one matra is the time it takes to blink your ...

Re: Order of cases?

As for the Sanskrit, the Hindu grammarians order the cases like this prathamā (nom), dvitīyā (acc), tṛtīyā (inst), caturhī (dat), pañcamī (abl), ṣaṣṭhī (gen), saptamī (loc). As you can see, the Sanskrit cases are called by number. Also, they don't consider the vocative a real case. That is also the...

Re:

Panini wasn't long-winded, though. He'd be a lot easier if he were a little less terse. It is said that being able to reduce a sutra with even an ardha matra (half the measure of time to pronounce a short a) gives the sutrakara (author of the sutra) as much happiness as the birth of a baby boy.

Re: Learning Modern Greek

Finally regarding your comments on Buddhism, it seems to me that you are the Eurocentric one here in that you project a Greek conflation of wisdom with reason onto a way of life that does not seek wisdom through reason. To shoehorn Buddhism into "world philosophy" is, to use the old saw, a Procrust...

I do not agree with remembering everything you would normally write in your calender. When you write an appointment down, you do not have to worry about it anymore and your mind becomes much clearer.
