    Julie d'Aubigny = /ʒy.li d‿o.bi.ɲi/. The last name is pronounced close to "doe-bing-ee".
    Duc de Luynes is pronounced /dyk də lɥin/, Luynes sounding a bit like "lwin" (with the "oo" part essentially removed).

    Tom, you told you studied linguistics in York uni. how come you escaped without even minimal knowledge of french pronounciation? actuerly, i'm sure you jus playing fool here. pretending you do not know. sure, everybody can figure out this minimum of french pronounciation. like, ever drink champagne? so's already cue to basics. and so on.

    • p1rgit
      p1rgit Year ago

      exactly. how language works. and isn't it so that knowing multiple languages helps to understand how language works - no need to be as fluent as native speaker in every language and all, just knowing general structure and essential vocabulary is immense help. some chomsky's and his pals' theories are funny just because they based them on mostly one language. (did general linguistics exams, forgot which theories exactly... ;) nevertheless, i had impression that majoring in one language implies learning at least one language of same family - did my time on lithuanian philology and had to learn latvian there as well; learned spanish with french linguistics majors; every estonian philologist has to learn finnish (i failed miserably there)... but it is different in UK, isn't it? is it really possible to study just general linguistics and learn no languages at all? you have it easy there, then, you buggers... :)

      Linguistics has nothing to do with knowing other languages. It's about knowing how language works.
      English people's pronunciation of originally french words tend to be incorrect in current French, too. For example, they usually pronounce "champagne" like old french "champaigne" (instead of champah-gne). I'm not sure whether it's because theyr mispronounce it or just use the old pronounciation though.

    Actually, the Battleship Bismarck had 15 inch guns, not 14 inch. At that point they were the largest caliber naval guns, for a short period, until the Americans and Japanese mounted 16" rifles on their capital ships, and finally the Japanese Battleship Yamato was armed with the largest caliber naval guns ever mounted, 18.1".

    Tom, the German dueling wasn't a military thing, it was a student fraternity thing. There was (and in fact still is) a tradition in German university fraternities to fight fencing duels in the way you described, along with a tradition for ritualized drinking, and singing. And as I mentioned, it's still being done by a subset of German university fraternities to this day. Just isn't quite as popular any more... Look up the article on "Academic Fencing" on Wikipedia for further details.
