I'm a student majoring in Languages (branch: Linguistics), currently working as a freelance translator. I've recently discovered Dropbox and I'm going to use it for my needs! :)

I love
Languages, Movies (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Tarantino, etc.), Music, 3D Graphics, books and so on.

Appointed ♦ Moderator Pro Tempore on Linguistics SE, Chinese SE and the Russian SE site. If you're interested in other Stack Exchanges, try the Italian SE site.

I like to lurk on other sites' Metas. Meta is fun!

My feature requests:

  1. Alert a moderator when an answer is improved after a post notice
  2. Automatically add chat event to the community bulletin (or make it easier)
  3. Give 10k users the ability to see the total count of flags they've handled

Moderator issues: If you have concerns or want to contact me about my moderation, you can find/ping me either in the Linguistics SE chat room or CL&U chat room; if I'm not there or I'm "idle", just ping me! Please avoid using my personal email for such things. Use the chat rooms.

comment What's the best way to say “perífrasis verbal” in English?
I've seen that used, but not referring to "words", rather to "verbs"... Is that the correct adjective in English? Maybe it's ambiguous for that...

I'd add "verbal" to your "periphrasis" there to be more specific. :) But I'm curious to see if other people have more to add.

Just to add to the "mess" :D, there's also my answer for the question "Spanish phrasal verbs" which is about them.

comment Spanish abbreviation for the United States of America
@Joze But the fact is that in the Russian version, "republic" is singular. I checked and I think it's a singular. Weird eh? :D Even in Italian and English it becomes plural...

No sé quien acepta. Pero todavía no tengo la reputación que necesito para editar. Cuando lo hago, veo un mensaje "Wait until it is peer reviewed". No creo que Nexus acepte mi correcciones, sino que alguien lo hace mientras que no tenemos mods o pocos usuarios con una reputación alta. :D

comment Debuccalization of /s/ to [h]
@LauraMoyàAlcover To be honest, I don't think I knew that one either. There are many symbols around, and not all are used by all languages. :P If you are interested in Linguistics, even as an enthusiast or as an "asker", consider going to the Linguistics SE, you'll see the link in my profile.

comment Debuccalization of /s/ to [h]
It's a mid back rounded vowel. If you go the this IPA vowels chart with audio, you can see what position it is, although I'm not sure you can hear that vowel and not the simple [o].
