Mastodon#languages

Subtitling a documentary about gender issues. Most of the men in it are stuffy, arrogant and unlikeable business types, while most of the women interviewed are very very endearing. I just caught myself translating similar Dutch expressions (e.g. toch, hoor) very differently for men and for women.
Then again, these little particles are so context-dependent (and statistically very gender-sensitive!)... it's hard to be fair and natural and accurate at the same time.

I can't help it.

I love #English way more than Italian.

This makes me an atypical Italian, I know.

There's a trend going on Mastodon right now about tagging 5 โ€• 7 things that you like but that aren't on your profile, so that people could find you. So okay, I like #dogs #languages #ai #science #psychedelicmusic #parenting

Well, that's a lot but it's still a narrowed down version from my real long list :-)

Seeing there are new ppl here, I thought I'd repost some #introductions

I do research on #compilers, #languages and runtimes (e.g. #OpenCL) for #FPGAs, #GPUs and #manycores, specifically to speed up science code like climate and weather models.

I program mostly in #Perl, #Haskell, #Fortran and #C++.

I mentor for #pcode, folks who want to learn/improve programming (mainly #Python), over on cybre.space

I also like #art, #veggie cooking and #japan.

I filtered a few select in as a test, but I still see them show up in timelines. Does this take a while to register, or something?
