AnnouncementNordalska is here! The first (somewhat) complete dialect of Alska!
You can see it here: http://linguifex.com/index.php?title=Alska/Dialects
I would put it up here, but the formatting translates TERRIBLY from Linguifex to Notepad!
Ḥḥ (Can only be described as 'breathy-h')
-Vowel lengthening by doubling
[ɛ] to [i:] when 'e' is doubled
[æ] to [a:] when 'a' is doubled
Unsure of exact function yet. In names, it separates the given and family names (Tali'Zorah and her father, Rael'Zorah)
Can be a vowel or a consonant
'ch' = [ç] and only appears as such. Is treated as its own letter, though 'c' does not exist on its own.
'th' = [θ] and only appears as such. Is treated as its own letter. (This means that 'geth' is technically a three-letter word)
'ae' = [eɪ]
Aa Cc Ee Gg Hh Ii Kk Ll Mm Nn Oo Pp Rr Ss Tt Uu Vv Xx Yy Zz (Áá Éé Íí Óó Úú Ýý)
-The initial stress position of a word is on the first syllable, but can be moved by using the acute accent over a vowel, as in Spanish
-The plosives [b] and [d] have morphed together with [p] and [t]. (Samara says that 'Ar[d]at-Yakshi comes from a dead Asari dialect)
Asari has 4 cases: Nominative, Accusative, Dative, and Genitive. These are marked in nouns by prefixes
Nominative Case: This case has no marking, so a bare noun always sigifies that it is the subject
Accusative Case: The accusative marking is the prefix [sa-]
Dative Case: The dative marking is the prefix [ta-]
Genitive Case: The genitive case marking is the prefix [la-] on the object being possessed, and [le-] on the noun possessing the object
-These prefixes do not apply to proper nouns such as proper names or place names, except for genitive's markers
-Infinitive Form is [verb]+[m]
-Conjugation is prefi
Depression This is about my depression. If you read this much, please read it all, it's a little insulting if you don't bother. (what are watchers for if not to look at their dev watches deviations?)
Thanks in advance.
I hate the people who just tell me I'm upset, or it'll all be ok, or I know how you feel- unless they are in the same bullet ridden, sinking boat in a sea full of hungry demons I am. The ones who tell me crying and self harming and starving is attention seeking, when in reality I'd rather hide away from everyone. Except I yearn for someone to be with.
Sorrow and an ache in my chest fills my day. My limbs throb in pain, every step becomes a chore. I cannot run, breath escapes my lungs far faster than I can drag it in. It feels like knives are stabbing relentlessly through my insides. This is not fake... This is real, and constant, but I've learned to live with this pain. Sometimes, it gets too much and I lie there on the floor whimpering, or I pass out fr
The Decay of NickelodeonThe Decay of Nickelodeon
A problem has come to my attention with the quality of cartoons aimed at kids in the past few years. They have been dumbed down with such things as terrible audio, “Acceptable” animation, and most notably, terrible writing. Recently, there have been a revival in the quality of these kids shows with creators working hard to provide this demand efficiently. This can be seen in such shows as Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, and even the revived My Little Pony franchise. These shows I listed can be seen on three of the four networks catered towards cartoons, Cartoon Network, DisneyXD, and the Hub. Unfortunately, Nickelodeon, the other of these four networks, has designated their cartoons towards a more limited audience, and it is quickly destroying the quality of their cartoons aired on their channel.
The problems date back to 2005, when many of the cartoon networks new shows began to dip in quality. Nickelodeon just aired “Avatar: the Last Airbend
CopingWill worlds stand still at your fingertips? My own, has refused to stop for my own pleasure. It’s pace quickening like the beat of a small rodent’s heart, it’s blood, too, running hot in its veins. There is no stopping a world, once it gets started. The world turns without delay, the tides will never bow to your command, and neither will other elements of nature.
It’s something that must be addressed, due to its devastating effects. I feel as if I must address it, that we all must address it. I, for one, try to ignore it the best I can.
But the bus tends to lazily circle its ruins; the ashes of our town still today lay at our feet. Town, and town past, being that this is not the same one that I came to years ago. This one has been built over the ruin of the other, and I hope that it will stand long after I’m gone.
But the world doesn’t stop at our command, does it?
When the first gale struck, I was long gone— locked in the dark, wi
How to make gourmet (In just 20 simple steps!)1. First; you get a pie. Any old pie can do, but preferably one with cheese in it. (Note: Make sure that it isn’t actually classed as ‘old’)
2. Wrap it in bacon. Make sure that if there are air-pockets, fill them up with batter and mushrooms and honey-chicken. Stuff like that.
3. Deep-fry it. You don’t microwave it, grill it, or bake it in the oven, you HAVE to deep-fry it. If it’s calories you’re wanting, then this is most definitely the way to go! Add batter for good measure.
4. Now you drizzle cheese all over it. This has to be done just after you’ve taken it out of ze deep fryer, preferably while it’s still hot. If you experiment with lots of different cheeses, you can make pretty pictures and a combination of tastes!
5. Now add battered bread-crumbs. The melted cheese should help stick it all together
6. Fry up some mince-meat, and put that on too. Note; this doesn’t have to actually be mince-meat mince meat, it can just be any

The Fascinating Beliefs of the Ancient EgyptiansAncient Egypt; one of the first of mankind’s greatest civilizations in history. From the Great Pyramids to the unique leadership style of the Pharaohs, the Egyptians have developed an interesting and remarkable set of beliefs. Few people haven’t heard of Egypt or it’s rich culture as the subject itself has inspired many popular movies and cartoon series. Aside from the Hollywood portrayals of terrifying mummies rising from the graves, or the Avatars of Bastet choosing a heroine to save the city, what exactly were the actual beliefs of the Egyptian people? Why did the Egyptians hold these sort of beliefs?
Like many other ancient cultures, the Ancient Egyptians were Polytheistic. This meant that they believed in many gods. The term poly implies “many” while “theistic” implies the belief in a God or deity. Unlike more well-known Greek, Roman or even Norse gods, the Egyptian gods and goddesses sported the heads of animals. Perhaps the Egyptians inv
Unova Explains: Pokemon World Facts 1In the Pokémon world there are a total of 21 main regions: The "leagued" regions, or ones with a Pokémon League, are KoTo (Kanto-Johto), Hoenn, Sinnoh, Arkia, Unova, Kalos, Aeroic, Strikua, Exxox, Bellu-Tarin, and Werik. The "resort" regions are not full continents. Some have leagues of their own, but are not vast enough to be considered in Conferences and other tourneys. These are Holon, the Orange archipelago, and the Sevii Islands. These are often treated as training resorts for big-name trainers. The others of this group are simply without a league for various reasons. These are Almia, Orre, Fiore, and Oblivia. Lastly, the "uncharted" regions are continents that have been only slightly explored by the modern world. Ones like Torneir and Terrevene just simply decided to remain independent long ago, and thus are still out there across rough waters, still ruled by a king and queen and still living in what we would call medieval ways. Flaske and the Outer Boundaries are

Inspector Wolf The old lady was dead. I could smell it before I even got into the house. The whole place reeked of adrenaline, sweat, fear, copper and steel. He’d dropped her right in her living room. Chopped and chopped until she stopped moving. But I could tell I was getting close. This had been done in a hurry, and the killer didn’t have the time to clean up after himself like he usually did.
Across the room, the phone rang. The shrill sound set my teeth to grinding, but I ignored it. Instead I followed the killer’s bloody footprints into the back bedroom. He’d climbed out the window. If I hurried, I could catch up to him and end this disgusting spree he was on.
Then the answering machine kicked in. “Hi, Gramma! It’s Red. Sorry I’m running late. I kind of lost track of time. But don’t worry. I packed the picnic and I’m heading out the door right now. Love you.”
She’d been expec
