Cette méthode d'écriture, promue par de nombreux militant·e·s féministes, vise à adopter une grammaire et une typographie qui rendent les femmes plus visibles dans notre langue. Qu'est-ce que l'écriture inclusive ? L'écriture inclusive est une technique d'écriture qui englobe des règles de grammaire et de syntaxe permettant d'assurer une représentation plus égalitaire des femmes et des hommes dans la langue française. La règle grammaticale selon laquelle le masculin l'emporte sur le féminin est également dans le viseur des partisans de l'écriture inclusive. Concrètement, comment l'utilise-t-on ?

Teaching or learning any language is, however, never an easy task. But what is a “weird” language anyway? As linguists, we generally aim to be as objective as possible in the study of human language. Some computational linguists have, however, used data in the World Atlas of Language Structures (WALS) to explore (tongue firmly in cheek) which languages might be considered the “weirdest.” Their aim was to find out which languages had the largest number of features that differed most from other languages. Critics though have claimed the survey indulged in cherry-picking only a few features of the world’s many languages. English sounds strange English probably sounds a little “weird” to many speakers of other languages. The question of questions

The Unknown Story of the Greeks Who Shaped the Latin Alphabet 4840 63Google +5 3 28 5437 The Latin alphabet is undoubtedly the world’s most recognizable form of written language, whose history goes back in time to the eras of ancient Greek and Roman dominance of the entire Western world. In its modern form, with its many variations and alterations, the Latin alphabet is officially used by an amazing 131 sovereign nations, and it is also a co-official script form in twelve other countries. Even in the countries which do not use it officially, most of their people not only recognize it, but they can also read it, mainly due to the global influence of the English language in our time. However, the exact origins of the Latin alphabet now used by billions of people are relatively unknown, and very few people are actually aware that the Latin alphabet itself finds its roots in an older form of Greek writing.

The Top 10 Relationship Words That Aren't Translatable Into English | Marriage 3.0 Here are my top ten words, compiled from online collections, to describe love, desire and relationships that have no real English translation, but that capture subtle realities that even we English speakers have felt once or twice. As I came across these words I’d have the occasional epiphany: “Oh yeah! That’s what I was feeling...” Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan, an indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego): The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who desire to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start. Oh yes, this is an exquisite word, compressing a thrilling and scary relationship moment. It’s that delicious, cusp-y moment of imminent seduction. Yuanfen (Chinese): A relationship by fate or destiny. From what I glean, in common usage yuanfen means the "binding force" that links two people together in any relationship. But interestingly, “fate” isn’t the same thing as “destiny.” Retrouvailles (French): The happiness of meeting again after a long time.
