20.05.13 — Florentino Peréz has announced that José Mourinho will leave Real Madrid at the end of the 2012/13 season.
Despite what the 2012/13 season has been, Madridistas cannot ignore what José Mourinho has done throughout his time in Real Madrid. Real Madrid were able to win the Copa del Rey for the first name in 18 years, in the 2011-12 season, Real Madrid achieved 100 points, scored 121 goals and won their 32nd La Liga title. So for that, thank you, the Special One.
Morphological Typology (illustrations from SpecGram)
Descriptions adapted from The Lingua File:Analytic languages: also known as isolating languages because they’re composed of isolated, or free, morphemes. Free morphemes can be words on their own, such as cat or happy. Languages that are purely analytic in structure don’t use any prefixes or suffixes, ever. However, it’s rare to find a language that is purely analytic or synthetic since most languages have characteristics of both. Morphological typology is like a spectrum in which languages fit in somewhere from analytic to polysynthetic (a subtype of synthetic languages we’ll get to in a moment).Types of synthetic language (i.e. languages that have prefixes/suffixes):Fusional Languages: Similar to agglutinating languages, except that the morpheme boundaries are much more difficult to discern. Affixes are often fused with the stems, and can have multiple meanings. A prime example of a fusional language is Spanish, especially when it comes to verbs. In the wordhablo ”I speak”, the -o morpheme tells us that we’re dealing with a subject that is singular, first person, and in the present tense. It’s difficult to find a morpheme that means “speak”, however, since habl- is not a morpheme. Fusional languages can be tricky!Polysynthetic Languages: These languages are undoubtedly some of the most difficult to learn. They often have verbs that can express the entirety of a typical sentence in English, which they do by incorporating nouns into verbs forms. For example, the Sora language of India has one word that means “I will catch a tiger”. Many Native American languages are polysynthetic.
This FASCINATES me.
Imperial Crown of Austria
This is the crown that was worn by the Holy Roman Emperors from its creation, in 1602, until the Holy Roman Empire was dissolved in 1806, when the crown became the crown of the Austrian Empire. The circlet of the crown contains squares of diamonds and lines of large pearls. The crown also contains depictions of the Emperor who had it made, Rudolph II, mostly showing scenes from his coronation. The arch of the crown contains more diamonds and it is topped with an emerald, which represents heaven.
