Subakh Ul Kuhar

Postby Aurelius Boro-Ginjo » 20 Aug 2011 12:20

I saw there where already some comments made about me and my username so I though I make a introduction topic.
Even though I might have a username that would make you expect I like the prequel books I do not like the new books written by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson.
Anyway, nice to meet you all :)

So why chose it ?

And it is customary to do the introduction before posting around but thanks for indulging our old fashionned ways of greeting the new comer(before claiming his water, but that's another story, not told by me)

Welcome twice welcome, hope you find what you came here for(I'm sure you will)

I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

      Actually that second should be SUBAH AN NOOR

      There are things in Arabic called sun-letters and moon-letters, and these characterise whether one should use AL or A- followed by the letter in question. In this case NOON (the first letter of NOOR) is a sun-letter and assimilates the AL.

          I've gotta learn Arabic, lots of languages out there for me to learn, but that one stands out to me - the grammar and rules just seem really straight forward and logical (one liguist told me once that in Arabic there isn't much breaking of rules, unlike english, so even though the rules are alien to me, once you know them you know them supposedly).

          Plus in my opinion Arabic takes first place prize for most beautiful written language, nothing else compares really.

              The rules in arabic seem fine to me, but there are some weird 'arbitrary seeming' ones, like the sun/moon letters and how certain combinations of letters are written. Definitely more logical though. The real hard part is that, as usually written, arabic omits the vowels, which means that it's difficult to try and read something you haven't seen before, unlike in English where you can sort of guess. At least for me anyway.

              Plural non-animate objects are feminine gender? Yeah, that makes sense! :lol:

              (The sun/moon stuff is just simple phonology: selective assimilation of the final consonant of the definite article to the first consonant of the word it's affixed to. ;) ) ("Selective" in the sense that not every consonant causes the assimilation. S does, B doesn't; N does, M doesn't; etc.)

              That first one would be one of the arbitrary ones. To be fair, I'm starting to forget most of what I'd learnt now. :)
