Not when it's made of plastic for halloween costumes. Real pauldrons are designed to actually be worn over chainmail and hard leather, or are built as part of a set of armor.

(Full armor was normally only really worn by nobility who didn't do any actual fighting so full sets of armor are basically just red flags that whoever is wearing it is a delicate upper-crust pussy who probably can't even swing their sword properly)

This is a great thread, OP. I've recently learned quite a few new terms:
Syncope describes when someone leaves out part of a word while pronouncing it. E.g. "Probably" being pronounced as "prob-ly."
Taciturn is the state of not being talkative.
Conversely, if someone has a word or two for everything, you might call them loquacious.
Do you hear the quiet whispering of the stream? They call it a susurrus.
Perspicacity is the quality of keen insight.

Seriously, this is a solid thread. Teach me something!

In middle school my latin teacher nicknamed one kid Tacitus because he never speaks and taciturn has a similar latin root meaning quiet.

Perspicacity also has another form: perspicaciousness. If your speech is perspicuous, it means you have clearly expressed yourself. However, your speech cannot be perspicacious (but you can) as that only means to have discerning vision. I used to say that my perspicaciousness far exceeded my perspicacity, trying to say basically that my powers of perception were better than my powers of expression before I realized that perspicacity did not refer to the quality of expression but rather actually means exactly the same thing as perspicaciousness. Whoever invented this stupid language trolled me with that one.

"Phoneme" is the word for a sound used to make words. "Th" "sh" "ch" "v" "f" "p" "b" are all phonemes in English that many languages do not have, or they have one but not the others. For example, Arabic has "b"and "f" but not "p", while they do have three different "h" sounds with corresponding letters.

"Shiboleth" comes to the English language through the bible. Hebrews can say every phoneme in the word because their language has the phonemes. Their enemy at the time couldn't say "sh" and their allies couldn't say "th" (or some combination, been a while). At night, the Hebrews used shiboleth as a challenge word; anyone who could not say the word correctly was deemed a spy/enemy patrol and was murdered on the spot.

Why do Persians speak Farsi instead of "Parsi" or "Persian?" Because their neighbors are Arabs and can't say "p" so they swapped to a similar phoneme "f." We got the word from Arabs.

The coolest thing about english phonemes is that there are two "th" phonemes, and many native speakers don't realize it until it's pointed out. It's the difference between the "th" is "either" vs "ether."

Most often they're referred to as "thorn" (the unvoiced version) and "eth" (the voiced version). Thorn used to have it's own letter in english that looked something like þ, which looked a bit like y. The y in "ye olde shoppe" is actually meant to be a thorn, and is pronounced like th.

My favorite phoneme is the French"j". It sounds like "sh" but "zh" instead. This is also a rare phoneme. English has a lot of rare phonemes. English doesn't have trills (rolling an "r" like Spanish does) or clicks, if anyone is wondering what we DON'T have in our lovely quilt of a lexicon.

>~1000AD the French took over Britain and gave us a lot of words.
It was also the lingua franca for a while. They were the world reserve currency and all of Europe and most of the world looked to them like a superpower. All educated people and higer class including royalty were influenced by the French and spoke French like most of the world speaks English today, with loanwords and word substitutes.

Listen to any middle class and up swede today and 10-30% of the words used will be English as we are totally dominated by American media and are also the best English as second language speakers in Europe.

Whenever French people stay with me I always tell them about lingua franca, and how English is now "the French language."

Some of them haven't read much classic literature and so don't know how much their own language was used only just recently. But whether it's William the Conqueror invading England and the resulting influence/usefulness for the aristocracy to adopt French (and thus French becoming a big part of English), or Napoleon raping it up all over Europe and basically making French cool as shit, it's hugely influential in the modern world. Only just recently have they been relegated to the slightly snobbish, snubbed cowards that got run over in WW2. (History's memory is rather short in the mind of the common people.) Even despite that, people still associate France and the French language with culture, sophistication, and smelly armpits.

Was already posted earlier in the thread, my friend. >>4482257 But it is indeed such a good word that it bears repeating.

Snowclones are different than malapropisms. They are phrases in which replaceable sections allow for almost infinite variety. For example, X is the new Y. Or [X playing loudly in the distance]. Many memes are built from snowclones.

An eggcorn is also different from a malapropism. A malapropism is nonsense, e.g., "atodaso. I fucking atodaso." An eggcorn has a certain logic to it, such as "old timer's disease." That's obviously a mistake, but at the same time, a little bit plausible, because generally only old people get the disease.

A mondegreen is a mishearing/misinterpretation of a phrase that makes sense but gives it an entirely new meaning. For example, hearing Jimi Hendrix singing, "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy!" instead of "kiss the sky".

A Hobson-Jobson is a word from another language translated into your own. E.g., English "cockroach" from Spanish "cucaracha," or 10% of the fucking Japanese vocabulary butchered from English and sometimes German. A soramimi is the same concept, but when the translation is done from song lyrics. For example, part of the Numa Numa song is heard by some Japanese listeners as "Rice, is it, rice wine, drink it, drink it, yeah!"

A mumpsimus is the repeating of one of these erroneous phrases after being corrected. E.g., being told irregardless is wrong, but still using it out of habit. It can also refer to the person who does this.

A folk etymology is when part of a word is changed to a more familiar or fitting expression. A good example is shamefaced, which is from the word shamefast, meaning "stuck in place." So, frozen in shame. You can see this use of fast in stuck fast, hold fast, etc. The word fast (as in break-fast) might be from a similar origin. Dunno.

A spoonerism is a phrase in which the sounds are swapped around, such as "smart feller" -> "fart smeller" or "dear old Queen" -> "queer old Dean." There's a specifically Finnish version of this revolving around their unusual grammar, called Sananmuunnos.

There's probably others but that's what I can remember. Webm is my very favorite malapropism of all time. I found this by searching for the phrase, and was the video's very first viewer. Fuck year!

It is logical. The ir- prefix agrees with the -less suffix on "regard". You are thinking that a double negative makes a positive, but here we see an example of a double negative adding emphasis. See also "I ain't seen nothing", where the double negative is required for agreement but does not add emphasis.

I was thinking about you all arguing about irregardless. And my favorite word that has changed in my lifetime is "nucular."

When I was little, it was supposed to be a strict no-no. But it really has won the battle. Obama says it, Trump says it, Bush says it, news anchors are mixed, but more say it than "nuclear". And before UK posters get snooty, I listen to the beeb daily, and your newsies and politicians say it too.

It's just been super fun watching my language change in real time. I'm guessing before I die nucular will be listed in the dictionary as the main form, and nuclear will get an (archaic) tag.

Some languages change very slowly.

I know what salacious means, but I never heard of lecherous before. Not a very good definition if the word makes me understand the definition.

Interestingly, glossolalia and meditation light up pretty opposite regions of the brain in an MRI.

The fact that they think it's divine is nutty, but they are accomplishing some sort of brain exercise with a real affect. I kind of want to try it out to see what it feels like, but have always felt too silly to try.

Scenestesia is seeing feels and thoughts when the eyes are closed. You can try to make sense out of the geometrical figures and images.

I would honestly give it a try, but I feel like it would be more embarrassing to be caught doing it than masturbation.

>The only point is to be understood

You're correct, but it is very difficult to be understood when everyone does not agree to follow the same rules beforehand. If I agree that "literally" means 100% actually true, and you agree that "literally" means kind of sort of true, then language has failed. You can't blame that failure on the person who is simply following convention.

Yeah before Beck got to him old NJ talked just like you or I. Everyone has their own way of dealing with stuff I guess.
