hey everyone, im rather new here but i figure this account would be used for posting tea session photos, and perhaps doodles or other passing thoughts. i'm a linguistics major, interested in speech pathology and phonetics. other interests include: modular synthesizers, creepy things, and the sweet smell of fresh earth.
parahumans (namely worm 2) talk, trauma
gxd ive just finished the newest chapter (dying 15.4) and I feel like this whole story is on the edge of falling downhill fast. i have to say that as wary i was of having Antares as a main character, she really does have a lot of interesting aspects to her. her whole dynamic with her sister freaks me out (why did she try to touch her during the goddess attack?! what did she do when she healed Antares' hands!?).

"why is 'sandwich' spelled like that?": an answer
it's not "sandwhich" because every word spelled with "wh" at an earlier point in the language was spelled "hw" and represented a voiceless W, you know, like Hank Hill from King of the Hill says ("I tell you hwut"). so "which" used to be said "hwich" and was audibly different from "witch" or the "-wich" suffix in Dunwich, Sandwich, etc.
a voiceless W is pretty weird because W is practically a vowel and voicelessness is more of a thing for the more assertive consonants like P or S. accordingly it would be pretty weird to have "hw" at the start of an unstressed syllable when the stressed syllable before it ended with "ND," both of which are voiced consonants. it'd be pretty hard to say
