I had seen the tweet in the first image before, and was going to comment about it and how the rule is slightly more complicated than that and how trying to learn it and use it is kind of useless for ESL learners. Not because the rule is not true, but because no one is going to stop mid sentence and try to remember the rule to decide what adjective goes where.
But the post is about so much more than that. Really interesting stuff.

Some interesting language bits for your day

In English, it sounds strange to say "the green, great dragon" instead of "the great, green dragon." Why?

Take a look at the first picture, a note which +Don McArthur shared. This rule probably isn't entirely universal (I'm sure that, with some time, I could come up with a counterexample), but it's pretty close to it: adjectives in English, and in other languages as well, follow a particular order.

This kind of thing is an example of linguistic spectra. In this case, it's a spectrum of binding strength: some modifiers "bind" more strongly to the things they modify, affecting their nature more intrinsically, and languages systematically place them closer to the things which they modify. For example, we apparently see color as a more intrinsic attribute of a thing than size, because size can change more easily; thus we have a great (green dragon) rather than a green (great dragon).

My favorite example of linguistic spectra comes from a phenomenon called split ergativity. Consider the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs:

Intransitive: "noun(I) verbed"
Transitive: "noun(T1) verbed noun(T2)"

Languages mark these nouns in different ways. If you speak any Germanic or Romance language, for example, you would say that I and T1 are both subjects of their sentences, and T2 is an object. These languages mark that behavior in various ways. In English, we do it mostly with word order – "Anna killed Clara" and "Clara killed Anna" have different meanings. With pronouns, we actually use different words: subjects like "I ate" or "I ate Bob," and objects like "Bob ate me." Other Indo-European languages like Latin take this farther, and explicitly mark what's called "case:" a change in the shape of a noun to indicate its role in a sentence. For example, in Latin you would say

"Anna eduit" ("Anna ate")
"Anna eduit Claram" ("Anna ate Clara" – note the "-m" indicating that Clara is a direct object)

Latin doesn't care as much about word order; "Claram eduit Anna" would still mean that Anna ate Clara, it would just be a kind of unusual way to say it. (Sort of like saying "Clara, Anna ate" in English)

What's important here is that these languages treat the subjects of transitive and intransitive sentences in the same way, and the objects of intransitive sentences differently. Do all languages do this?

No! Another way to do it is what's called ergative-absolutive. In languages like Turkish, the subjects of intransitive sentences are treated the same way as the objects of transitive sentences, and it's the subjects of transitive sentences which are different.

What's the idea here? It's because both the intransitive subjects and the transitive objects are the ones being affected by the verb, while the transitive subject is staying the same but affecting someone else. In these languages, instead of distinguishing subjects and objects (highlighting who or what performed an action), we distinguish "agents" and "patients" – highlighting who or what was changed by an action.

(In languages like these which use case markings on words to distinguish them, the agent is in what's called the "absolutive" case, and the patient "ergative," thus the name. In languages like Latin and English, subjects are "nominative" and objects are "accusative," so these are called nominative-accusative languages)


Are there any other options? Well, we're trying to group three things, so there are a few possibilities. (See the second picture...)

1. Intransitive subject, transitive subject, and transitive object are all the same.
2. Subjects are the same, objects are different. (English, German, Latin)
3. Agents are the same, patients are different. (Turkish, Tibetan, Pashto)
4. Things in transitive sentences are the same, things in intransitive sentences are different.
5. All three are different.

It turns out that options 1 and 4 don't happen, and for a simple reason: if you had no way to tell apart a transitive subject from an object, then it would never be clear just who ate whom. Option 5 does exist in a few languages, but it's not as common.

But what's interesting is that there's a sixth option, called "split ergativity," which languages like Hindi use: some verbs are nominative-accusative, and other verbs are absolutive-ergative!

This might seem incredibly confusing, at first: now you have to remember which verbs use which kind of grammar?! But it turns out that split ergative languages have a pattern to them, as well.

The rule is this: line up all the verbs in the world, and order them by how much they change the state of a thing. Maybe moving changes your state less than changing color; both of those change your state less than being born or dying.

Somewhere in the middle of this line, you will draw a border. If a verb is all about changing the state of something, it will use the absolutive-ergative rules, and grammar will distinguish the thing which was affected from the thing that wasn't; if the verb doesn't really change states much, then grammar instead distinguishes between who did it and who didn't, and you use nominative-accusative rules.

What's most fascinating to me about this is this: different split-ergative languages put the boundary in different places. But there's good evidence that all languages are using the same ordering of verbs! That is, if one language considers a verb to be "more" state-changing than another verb, chances are that all the other languages will agree as well.

So this really is another linguistic spectrum, and like the great, green dragons we started with, it also has to do with how "fundamental" we see a property as being.

The net result: the more fundamental we see a thing as being, the more tightly its modifiers bind to the thing, and the more likely we are to view a sentence that talks about it changing as really being about the thing that is being changed, rather than about the thing doing the changing.

It's one of those interesting signs of universal structures underpinning human language. ___I had seen the tweet in the first image before, and was going to comment about it and how the rule is slightly more complicated than that and how trying to learn it and use it is kind of useless for ESL learners. Not because the rule is not true, but because no one is going to stop mid sentence and try to remember the rule to decide what adjective goes where.
But the post is about so much more than that. Really interesting stuff.

Something beautiful, via Prof. Rhodri Lewis at Oxford: a picture of Brian Walton's 1657 "Polyglot Bible," which provides a range of simultaneous translations. On this page, clockwise from the top left, you can see the original Hebrew; the Latin Vulgate; the Greek Septuagint; the Aramaic Targum Onkelos; a Chaldean (Hebrao-Samaritic) translation; a Samaritan translation; an Arabic translation; and a Syriac translation. All but the Hebrew and Latin have literal Latin translations alongside them.

Parallel translations like these are tremendously useful for scholars, as they give you senses of how the senses of words have shifted between peoples. The Bible is a particularly rich source of such shifting, as translations have often followed cultural and political norms – leading to such egregious mistranslations as "thou shalt not kill."

It's no longer there, true? Did I lost my right leg? ". "No P. The leg's there, we do surgery because you'll come back slowly to feel it all." I left them last night, after I made them wake up. They seemed to be ok, but it was really too nice to believe. I've found them morning in intensive care. Fuck off.

"Call just my partner, they told me that maybe it's in another hospital. The same happened when we were in L'Aquila. They have split me from my family. " For God's sake.

Anti-inflammatories, cortisone, morphine, oxygen. "They're hypothermic, prepared hot liquids."

There comes a trauma, arm and leg. "Are there here the boy's parents to consent?" "There is no one, he says he was with his grandparents, but they are dead." Fuck it right now.

Hands, faces, hair full of dust. "Ok, you sleep. You can start. Do the surgery, we're going to wash them a bit. " "Raga the clothes of A. Where are his clothes? Do not forget then, his things are inside that envelope. We should return back at least that ones. "

"I could not scream. If I cried I'd breathe dust. I did only little breaths in pain. At some point, I succumbed. I tried to die in every way. Then the angels have pulled me out."

Now, according to you, are these people interested in your comments? Immigrants, sarcastic jokes, unnecessary controversy. Interesting things? Because I'm not really interested. Even less to them. So, please, shut up. Shut the fuck up. At least this time".

"State zitti, per favore.
Non c’è molto da fare quando la natura decide così. Ma soprattutto, non c’è molto da dire.
Lavoro all’ospedale regionale di Torrette, Ancona. Ieri ho vinto un simpatico turno di 12 ore in guardia. Abbiamo lavorato poco rispetto a quanto abbiano fatto i nostri colleghi di Ascoli e San Benedetto (bravissimi, perfetti, prontissimi). Noi eravamo troppo lontani anche per l’elicottero. Eravamo anche in sotto numero, perché alcuni di noi sono andati a dare una mano giù.
Ma alcuni sono arrivati anche da noi. Li abbiamo visti in faccia, muti. Non parlava nessuno. Qualcuno riusciva solo a ripetere il nome dei figli. Qualcun altro non aveva la forza neanche per respirare.

Di quelli che abbiamo portato in sala operatoria, molti chiedevano un’anestesia generale “Fatemi dormire. Non voglio sentire più niente”. Fratture esposte, traumi chiusi, “Non sento più la gamba. Non c’è più vero? Non ho più la mia gamba vero?”. “No P. La gamba c’è, ti operiamo perché pian piano tornerai a sentirla tutta”. Li ho lasciati ieri sera, dopo averli svegliati. Sembrava stessero bene, ma era troppo bello crederci davvero. Li ho ritrovati stamattina in rianimazione. Vaffanculo.

“Chiamate solo il mio compagno, mi hanno detto che forse è nell’altro ospedale. È successo lo stesso quando eravamo all’Aquila. Mi hanno diviso dai miei familiari”. Cristo che botta.

Antinfiammatori, cortisone, morfina, ossigeno. “Sono tutti ipotermici, preparate liquidi caldi.”

Arriva un trauma, braccio e gamba. “Ci sono i parenti del ragazzino per il consenso?” “Non c’è nessuno, lui dice che era con i nonni, ma sono morti”. Vaffanculo pure adesso.

Mani, volti, capelli pieni di polvere a macerie. “Ok, dorme. Potete iniziare. Operate, noi iniziamo a lavarli un po’”. “Raga i vestiti di A. Dove sono i suoi vestiti? Non dimentichiamoli, ci sono le sue cose dentro quella busta. Ridiamogli almeno quelle”.

“Non riuscivo a gridare. Se gridavo respiravo polvere. I respiri piccoli piccoli per il dolore. Ad un certo punto, ho ceduto. Ho provato a morire in tutti i modi. Poi gli angeli mi hanno tirato fuori”.

Adesso, secondo voi, a queste persone i vostri commenti interessano? Gli immigrati, le battute sarcastiche, le polemiche inutili. Interessano? Perché a me non interessano proprio. E tantomeno a loro. Allora, per favore, state zitti. State zitti cazzo. Almeno stavolta".
