You'd be better off asking a Filipino at your university (there's going to be a Filipino at your university - we're everywhere). Being raised a Tagalog myself and knowing only English and Tagalog, I can't offer any knowledge of whether or not there's a direct equivalent to the term "extremist&...

There is nothing wrong with being an extremist. The problem is not caring.

Shame the US (and Europe too) are becoming more right wing by the day. Stupid SJW's, tarnishing the good name of the left. Red reveloution BTW? I am a libertarian communist, not a Stalinist or some other distortion. To me, rather than condemning so-called SJWs, thought bridges should be built to gu...

I'm an American social democrat, and I'm pretty annoyed by how people mix up the two terms. My economic views are on the leftmost end of capitalism, buy I'm frequently mistaken for a socialist now because of Bernie Sanders calling himself a socialist when he isn't. Sanders upset a lot of people, in...

I'm not doubting that it's an Austronesian language (technically Tagalog, since "Filipino" is a catch-all term that basically means Tagalog), I'm saying that the Filipino terms you used feel forced. I'm also saying that nobody uses the term "extremist" here when speaking in Phil...

Yes, to make the distinction, some people call Amharic Ethiopic. However, that is also not very precise.

Salus Maior wrote:Amharic is Ethiopian, right?


Yes, sort of. However, Amharic is not the only language used in Ethiopia. Amharic (ʾÄmarəña) is a descendant from Geꞌez (Gəʾəzə). These days, Geꞌez is only used as a liturgical language (much like Latin in the Roman Catholic Church).

Amharic is interesting. I don't know if I'd call it the easiest abugida, but it definitely produces good contrasts between each character. What makes Amharic one of the two easiest Semitic languages to read (the other being Maltese) is the absence of vowel points. Of course, Hebrew, Arabic, and Syr...

You of all people should know dictionaries aren't reliable for precise definitions. Since you like academic definitions, I'd like to draw you to the distinction made in, say, German jurispudence (where extremist parties are banned), between radical and extreme politics, where the former is defined ...

Strictly speaking, the Sinosphere would be considered a cultural region and a sprachbund rather than a language family. Also, Thailand is often considered part of the Indosphere. Yes, that is correct. I debated whether to include Thai under the Sinosphere or miscellaneous. However, since Thai is so...

Well, it might be slightly less confusing if you included the languages of all the countries in this proposed "Sinosphere," which I presume would include Cambodia with Khmer, Burma with Burmese, Laos with Lao, and perhaps Hong Kong's Cantonese Chinese. As it stands, you appear to have spr...

The category doesn't make any sense, though. I could maayybe see Japanese and Chinese grouped together due to Japanese using the hanzi/kanji from Chinese, and if we're okay with archaic forms, Vietnamese could be included as well. Thai and Korean should be miscellaneous, though, because they don't ...

Why the hell would you prefer "extremist" to "radical?" The former almost universally has far worse connotations than the latter, and in academic definitions the former also means something a lot less palatable to most people. As I wrote: The term, radical, has become far too co...

Oh, and you should probably specify the dialect of Armenian you're using, because the transliteration would be incorrect for the Western Armenian dialect, which afaik is the most common form spoken in the diaspora.

Filipino feels a little forced. While technically correct, you're more likely to hear people use the term radikal (radical) or militante (militant) to describe extremists, rather than the actual word - but, more recently, there's been a kind of distinction between the two, whereas you're more likel...

But if we dismiss the idea that one has ownership of their body, then how can we come to the conclusion that such things like rape are immoral?
