A linguistic League of Nations

Some time ago, a question followed my discussion of sound-symbolic and sound-imitative sl-words (March 13, 2019): “What about slave?” Obviously, as I replied, not all words of a certain phonetic structure belong to the same homogeneous group. Yet ever since, I have been planning to write something about this tricky subject. Slave would not have deserved special attention if it were not so close to Slav. By way of introduction, I decided to devote some space to the use of ethnic names in words an...

Hallo allemaal

Ik ben jafrako, 75 jaar en vanaf de 2e klas Lagere School ben ik gaan lezen en nooit meer gestopt. M'n eerste zakgeld ging op aan boeken en ik bleef kopen. Het geschreven woord was me heilig en zelfs een in mijn huis verdwaalde Kasteelroman kon ik moeilijk wegdoen. Ik ben een etnische Hollander; grote bek en veel babbels zeggen ze hier in Overijssel waarheen ik in 1990 ben verhuisd. Hoorde daar voor het eerst over de Deventer Boekenmarkt dus een kijkje genomen. Sindsdien met wisselende vriende...

Judge Tosses Maryland Effort To Protect O’Care From Trump Admin ‘Sabotage’

BALTIMORE (AP) — A federal judge on Friday dismissed a Maryland lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s administration for what it portrayed as recurring efforts to dismantle the national health care law and chase people away from coverage. U.S. District Judge Ellen Lipton Hollander wrote in her decision that there’s no question about Trump’s “profound disdain” for the Affordable Care Act, signed into law in 2010 by his predecessor. But she found the state’s allegations speculative, ruling th...

Exit Lines: “Lobby Hero”

I had fun at Three Tall Women–too much fun, I suspect. Its original Off Broadway production, which won Edward Albee his third Pulitzer Prize in 1994 after a dry spell, was more quietly lacerating than what’s currently at the Golden, dreamier, stranger. I mean, all Albee plays are strange, occupying their own fascinating space between his imagination and ours. But this one, with three women, A, B, and C, who seem to have assigned roles (aging dowager mother, dutiful daughter, lawyer) in the first...

Guide to Dutch slang

Dutch can be a difficult language for foreigners to learn. Mainly because the Dutch use a lot of slang phrases. Here are some of the phrases you will most commonly hear in The Netherlands. Use a few of these and you’ll sound just like an Old Hollander. 1. “Doe even normaal” Literal translation: Just do normal What it means: Get a grip In the Netherlands, it’s important to always be composed and to never make a big scene, even if you’re upset. So don’t get mad. Just be normal. 2. “TYFUS! TER...

John Coltrane Draws a Mysterious Diagram Illustrating the Mathematical & Mystical Qualities of Music

In a post earlier this year, we wrote about a drawing John Coltrane gave his friend and mentor Yusef Lateef, who reproduced it in his book Repository of Scales and Melodic Patterns. The strange diagram contains the easily recognizable circle of fifths (or circle of fourths), but it illustrates a much more sophisticated scheme than basic major scale theory. Just exactly what that is, however, remains a mystery. Like every mystical explorer, the work Coltrane left behind asks us to expand our con...

John Coltrane Draws a Picture Illustrating the Mathematics of Music

Physicist and saxophonist Stephon Alexander has that Albert Einstein and John Coltrane had quite a lot in common. Alexander in particular draws our attention to the so-called “Coltrane circle,” which resembles what any musician will recognize as the “Circle of Fifths,” but incorporates Coltrane’s own innovations. Coltrane gave the drawing to saxophonist and professor Yusef Lateef in 1967, who included it in his seminal text, Repository of Scales and Melodic Patterns. Where Lateef, as he writ...
