  2. Dan Harmon on Community future: Nothing determined but Yahoo wanted to ‘do a movie immediately’ | EW.com

    It has been less than a week since the well-received Community season (series?) finale aired, which seems like more than enough time to start asking if there will be more Community in some form. Which is exactly what EW Radio host Jessica Shaw did in her interview with series creator Dan Harmon (and his Ricky and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland) at the ATX Festival in Austin today.

  5. 56 History of English Podcast | The Spoken History of a Global Language

    In the mid-900s, the English king battled a grand alliance of Celtic and Viking leaders at a place called Brunanburh.  The result was an Anglo-Saxon victory, and one of the more important poems composed during the Old English period. But the Anglo-Saxon victory did little to secure the region around York. The Viking influence remained strong there, and control of York passed between the English and the Vikings. One consequence of that prominent Viking presence was the continuing flow of Norse words into the northern English dialects. We continue to explore the influence of Scandinavian vocabulary on Modern English.

  9. Episode 53: The End of Endings | The History of English Podcast

    Kevin – great episode.

    I’m curious as to why word order and inflection loss didn’t happen as much in Scandinavia and other places – and why so heavily in England.

    Surely the Norman Conquest had a large part in it, but there were tons of Old Norse dialects coming into contact with one another – was it just that English (Anglo-Saxon) was just that different enough?

    Later on the Scandinavian tongues (except for Icelandic and Faroese) lost the third gender along with many inflections and word order became more important but unlike English adjectives and adverbs, etc. are declined in these languages.

    Also, I’m studying Danish and Swedish and the word for an animal is et dyr and ett djur, respectively, so the part about the deer meaning the general term for animal was really very clear for me in this episode.

    Also they

    become direct objects when you add on endings; i.e. dyret & djuret (the animal), but they never inflect for plural – they’re unique-ish in that way.
