Ich hab mir bislang dazu nie Gedanken gemacht aber eigentlich sind die Begriffe "Sommersemester" und "Wintersemester" unpassend.
Korrekt wären "Frühlingssemester" und "Herbstsemester", wenn man es genau nimmt ... 🤔

I'm reading a novel from 1999, when CRT screens needed screensavers to avoid burn-in.

"The thought's occurrence had nothing to do with logic; it appeared like a screensaver on the surface of her mind, whenever her mind went blank."

This is kind of a subtoot becasue I can't find the original toot I wanted to reply to, but:

Social media isn't bad for you. The info I got from _some_ yt channels, _some_ people on reddit, hn, tildes, and now here on masto, ofc along with a lot of other experiences, reading, and thinking, has had a significant impact on my life. Learned a lot of study topics that way, yes, but also, I got to witness so many realities different from mine. It opened me up to the whole world and taught me 1/

@juliobiason well played.

Then again... literally the name of the next year is "2020 won", so perhaps it's time to cut our losses.

@cadadr Since you talked about data in linguistics recently, you might find this useful (PDF link is inside!) frontiersin.org/research-topic
Marc van Oostendorp (@fonolog@twitter) tweeted it into my feed.

I happen to be needing to read into such stuff (the empiry in grammar theorizing) right now, and I've just read the chapter by Ott (which might be a little too syntax-focused, and thus less relevant to you) -- there's a ton of other chapters which might (also) be relevant to you.

Why do we call "interpreted [code]" "interpretiert" in German, when we could say "gedolmetscht" (or "simultanübersetzt" if you prefer). That's how "translating in real-time between some natural languages" is usually called ("interpret", in English). "Interpretiert" is how "subjectively understand" is called (also "interpret" in English, I think), which to me is misleading.
