[18:34] #wikipedia-en url is
�03[18:34] * Retrieving #wikipedia-en modes...
[18:35] <BarkingFish> good call, mabdul|busy - I forgot about them :)
[18:35] <BarkingFish> does not exist
[18:35] <Thogo> because gr is not Greek. XD el is.
[18:35] <Thogo> so, #wikipedia-el
[18:35] <mabdul|busy> o.O
�06[18:35] * BarkingFish trouts mabdul|busy with a studded rainbow trout weighing 5lbs.
�15[18:36] * Fifelfoo ( (Australia) from #wikipedia-en Quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
�06[18:36] * Thogo tries to get a grill for that nice trout.

�15[18:37] * Ktr101_ (0cef31f2@gateway/web/freenode/ip. from #wikipedia-en Quit (Changing host)
�03[18:37] * Ktr101_ (0cef31f2@wikipedia/Ktr101) has joined #wikipedia-en
�03[18:40] * Qcoder00 ( from United Kingdom has joined #wikipedia-en
�15[18:40] * Qcoder00 ( (United Kingdom) from #wikipedia-en Quit (Client Quit)
�15[18:40] * Ktr101 (0cef31f2@wikipedia/Ktr101) from #wikipedia-en Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
�06[18:40] * Thogo just invented "decidden" as the past participle of decide. *improving the English language*
�03[18:40] * Ktr101_ is now known as Ktr101
[18:41] <BarkingFish> The best thing to improve English, Thogo, would be to standardize it.
[18:41] <BarkingFish> A bit like the Rechtschreibreform
[18:41] <Thogo> no. languages without irregularities are artificial.
�03[18:41] * Fifelfoo ( from Australia has joined #wikipedia-en
[18:41] <Thogo> and artificial languages are bad.
[18:41] <Thogo> and boring.
�15[18:42] * Guest22973 ( (United Kingdom) from #wikipedia-en Quit (Ping timeout: 276 seconds)
[18:42] <Thogo> too bad that with that pattern, the past form would be "decode", which might lead to some - uhm - ambiguities.
[18:42] <BarkingFish> wrong.  Look at Esperanto. Where else could you find a language where you can write the words in damn near any order and it's still understandable
[18:42] <Thogo> hm, German?
[18:42] <Thogo> Latin?
�03[18:42] * Mezelf14 (~chatzilla@wikipedia/Mezelf14) has joined #wikipedia-en
[18:42] <Thogo> well, Latin is an even better example.
�03[18:43] * spokeswheel (gnfo@ from United States has joined #wikipedia-en
�03[18:43] * juancarlos (~yes@wikimedia/Killiondude) has joined #wikipedia-en
[18:43] <BarkingFish> ok, let me rephrase it.  You can write the words in any order, and they still have the same meaning in the sentence, regardless of what order.
[18:43] <Thogo> same for Latin
[18:43] <BarkingFish> I'm not explaining this well.
[18:43] <Thogo> stop spamming.
[18:43] <QueenOfFrance> ./abr spokeswheel
�03[18:43] * ChanServ sets mode: +o QueenOfFrance
�03[18:43] * QueenOfFrance sets mode: +b *!*@

[18:44] <juancarlos> hi
[18:44] <Thogo> some people should get their keyboard stuffed into the head. So at least something is in there. ^^
[18:44] <BarkingFish> Thogo: I found out about it from Tempodivalse, who is an avid Esperantist.  Brion Vibber I think is one, too.
[18:44] <Jeske_Merensky> I doubt they have that many years of logs.
[18:45] <Thogo> BarkingFish: I know a very active Esperantologist, too. [[User:N-true]]
[18:45] <Thogo> he's a friend of mine
[18:46] <mabdul|busy> BarkingFish: please no english "Rechtschreibreform" - they did everything wrong! Everything!
[18:46] <BarkingFish> I tried to learn Esperanto a few years back, I could not get the hang of it, and normally I soak up language like blotting paper.
[18:47] <Beria> hola juancarlos
[18:47] <BarkingFish> mabdul|busy: Well I know they nailed the use of ß in some words, which is a plus, especially when you can't find it on a keyboard :)
[18:47] <Beria> my king.
[18:47] <juancarlos> HOla.
[18:47] <juancarlos> hola *
[18:47] <juancarlos> Sí.
