|Jan-22-04|| ||technical draw: OK I'm out of this debate. Sounds too much like "work". |
|Jan-22-04|| ||ughaibu: Lingua franca of Papua New Guinea. |
|Jan-22-04|| ||PinkPanther: <TrueFiendish>
I wish I could say that I cared but I don't. I'm getting ripped on because some guy comes on here typing in Ebonics and I get ripped on for pointing it out? Boohoohoo, like I said, get your blood up all you want because in reality you have your opinions and I have mine....it just so happens that I don't care what yours are....at least not on this. If you wanna talk about chess ( I know I'm the one that took this conversation off topic but...) then be my guest, but don't try and belittle my beliefs/opinions away from the board.
|Jan-22-04|| ||PinkPanther: I still have no clue what you're talking about....care to give me some samples of this language or something? Ultimately, it is possible that a language can be similar to English but different enough that it's considered (rightfully so) to be a different language, but Ebonics isn't that language. |
|Jan-22-04|| ||zugzwang: Hope you won't mind guys but this is going off the tangent. We are supposed to be discussing chess here. I suppose we have to live with guys who would, deliberately or not, write/speak english the way they do.|
Just my two cent.
|Jan-22-04|| ||ughaibu: PinkPanther: It's based on english but has a lot of words from german as well, a total vocabulary of only about 1600 words. In english there's no word in general use for the neutral singular of 'cattle', one has to choose "cow" or "bull", in Melanesian pisin they have such a neutral singular, "bullmacow" (I think) from this it's impossible to extract "cow", a construction meaning 'female bullmacow' has to be made, something like "meri me bullmacow". Does that make anything clearer? |
|Jan-22-04|| ||TrueFiendish: Your patience is heartening, U, but I wouldn't bother. |
|Jan-22-04|| ||PinkPanther: Ummm, perhaps, I suppose. It is English and it isn't English. But doesn't a 1600 word vocabulary in a language seem EXTREMELY small to you? There is no way that with just 1600 words you can fully express everything....or can you? |
|Jan-22-04|| ||ughaibu: Even disregarding the size of vocabulary there are a lot of things I say in japanese that I cant say in english and vice versa. |

There was a recent example on Kibitzer's Café. zorro (who is Italian) wrote: <I stopped playing on Yahoo since they changed the look of the board, the new one is unplayable to me> The word he was looking for, I think, was "inguardabile" which is Italian for "unbearable to look at" (guardare = look at).
Russian, which I'm studying at the moment, is rich and complicated, but at the same time, amazingly, they don't distinguish between "a man", "the man" and "man". Oh well.
|Jan-23-04|| ||Hidden Skillz: hmm pink pather u again...this is internet man, i write any way i want..its not school..and my words rent offendin anybody so wtf is ur problem..just cos i switch around letters u make a problem out of it..cmon chill i really mean it.. |

|Jan-23-04|| ||PinkPanther: Thanks alot for causing me to have a stroke, guys ;-) |
|Jan-23-04|| ||Benjamin Lau: PP, in formal English, "alot" is not a word. :-) |
|Jan-23-04|| ||PinkPanther: Sorry BL, "a lot", is that better? I knew that, it was probably just an oversight I made while I was typing. |
|Jan-23-04|| ||tamar: c'mon nobody no talkin tarrasch enuf |
|Jan-23-04|| ||ughaibu: Switchya? |
|Jan-23-04|| ||Benjamin Lau: PP, yes, much better. :-) |
|Jan-24-04|| ||Maroczy: So where did Jeremiah hide that Ark? |
|Jun-06-08|| ||whiteshark: Wood laike 2 c a briev zummry;|
|Jan-13-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this must be a hard loss for Topalov.|
|Jan-30-09|| ||WhiteRook48: why not 49.... fxg1Q+?|
|Jan-30-09|| ||Kinghunt: <WhiteRook48> Because after 49... f1=Q 50. Rxf1 Rxf1+, black has a check to queen the a pawn, which wouldn't happen after 49... axg1Q+ 50. Kxg1|
