i need Genesis 27 (or at least 10 lines from it) in translation of Aelfric into Old English
if you can post them here i would be very grateful
as far as i have heard, Smirnitskiy cited it in his anthology, but it is not available for me as well:(
awfully sorry if my post is not appropriate for your community
Also, a Mexican friend of mine greets me with "salvaje" a lot. Is this common? It always makes me think of Latin (salvete), which is where I'm sure it came from if it's actually a greeting and not something he just came up with. haha
But I would like to know... why is English in an "Anglo-Frisian" subcategory of West Germanic as opposed to some other possible classification.
If any of you out there have some sort of specialized knowledge or interest in Germanic languages; please give me all the knowledge you've got or at least point me in the right direction of some literature because I'm really fascinated by this topic.
Some major points I'm curious about:
-What is the basis for how English is presently classified?
-Has it differed historically at all?
-What is the consensus on this classification among linguists? Are there any scholars in dispute with the "Anglo-Frisian" category?
-Are there any alternative classifications proposed?
-How did it end up being where it is now?
I'm an English student and in need of some help. I am doing my bachelor's thesis at the moment about Japanese native speakers' attitudes towards loanwords (gairaigo) derived from English.
So, if you are a native speaker of Japanese and can help me out and make me eternally grateful, please fill in the questionnaire in my journal.
Also, if you have Japanese friends who are not reading this, please spread the word and use copy-paste because I need all the help I can get ^^
Thank you very much.
This might be a really cheeky request, but does anyone know of a website where I can get access to pointed Hebrew texts? The only one i have at the minute is a Hebrew tanakh, but i'm finding it difficult to read because of all the cantillation marks and other Masoretic accents ((i cant READ read it, as I'm just starting Hebrew (biblical+modern) but Im trying to speed up my reading.
I have ordered a Hebrew childrens book off ebay, but it would be expensive, so a few pdf's or word docs in pointed hebrew would be smashing! :)
