I am working on a constructed language, and I am trying to come up with a unique way to express the time, duration and manner of actions. I was wondering (in a sort of broad sense) what unique methods are utilized in natural languages. I am already familiar with those of Japanese, Chinese, and a few European languages, all of which seem to be largely prepositional in their approach.
I work at a call center and sometimes need to transfer customers to our Spanish line. What verb should I use when telling a customer that I'm going to transfer his or her call?
This is stupid, but I have to know...
George Takei played Mr. Sulu on Star Trek. I'm not a Trekkie, but assuming that, like Takei, Mr. Sulu is of Japanese heritage, how likely is "Sulu" for a Japanese name? The letter L doesn't figure into transliteration from Japanese, does it?
