it’s an ‘I feel like i’m being gaslit by phonologists’ kind of night again

on some level i feel like i should appreciate the wide range of sounds humans can make with their mouths and that people have put a lot of effort into studying and cataloguing subtle variations within them. i should! intellectually i do.

emotionally i don’t though. i just read about yet another distinction between two sounds that i cannot hear l and i want to grab the entire field by the lapels and shake them vigorously while yelling that it’s the same fucking sound what are you talking about


#this probably deserves some warning tag but I am not sure what #is the blue I see the same as the blue you see #language #relatable #fun wif forn fronting #last night I was‚ once again‚ listening to Of Monsters and Men and contemplating alien qualia
