hllizi While I share the sentiment of the last paragraph to some extent, the question an aw lingers in my mind how the fuck that could happen - while there are better Wikipedias in Latin and Anglo-fucking-Saxon available. Really gives of the impression of Scots as an abandoned language. twitter.com/DavidsonMagnus…

hllizi Es kann ja durchaus sein, daß die oft genannten Studien zu den Effekten des generischen Maskulinums bzw. geschlechtergerechter Sprache kompletter Quatsch sind. Aber warum gehen die Leute, die das behaupten, typischerweise nie auch nur mit einem Wort überhaupt darauf ein? twitter.com/tnoetting/stat…

We're covering the linguistics, modeling, and data that you need to build NLP systems in new languages: demo.clab.cs.cmu.edu/11737fa20/ 1/2 pic.twitter.com/WOE8WIkczj

karencheee recently learned that the korean equivalent of the expression “looking for a needle in a haystack” is “looking for a Mr. Kim in Seoul” and I think that is so so so funny

derwahremawa Sicher kennen das viele von euch schon, aber nur zur Info: Bei akkutauschen.de könnt ihr in so ziemlich jedem Gerät die Batterie wechseln lassen. Bei elektrischen Zahnbürsten werden dabei ggf. auch noch die Dichtungen revidiert und Mechanik und Elektronik durchgesehen.

Fischblog Das betrifft oft Aspekte, die für alle Beteiligten knapp außerhalb des eigentlichen Forschungsschwerpunktes liegen. Wie hier eben die Bandscheiben. Deswegen machen alle plausible, für ihre Forschung funktionierende Annahmen, ohne wirklich genau hinzugucken.

Fischblog Das ist insofern ganz spannend, dass es einen in der Forschung überraschend häufigen Effekt zeigt. Manchmal halten sich falsche Annahmen über eigentlich sehr einfach überprüfbare Dinge sehr lange. twitter.com/spektrum_de/st…

MillennialProf_ Pedagogy Tip of the Day:

Always analyze which of your classroom practices are ableist, or only serve students who fit your prefab ideation of who a "student" might be.

Examples to follow in a short thread.

Read, RT, pass it on, etc.

tesseralis I remember when I was in high school in Baby Atheist mode I decided to *not* say the words "under God" in order to *stick it to the man*… without thinking of the broader scope of why a "pledge of allegiance" would be problematic lol twitter.com/dan_abramov/st…

tschfflr Ich hab's ja wirklich versucht ein Semester lang mit dem Plural "Emojis", aber nun kann ich definitiv berichten, dass zumindest bei den ~20-25jährigen "Emoji" auch im Plural dominant ist. 🤷‍♀️

tesseralis Me pre-Twitter:

* comes up with kernel of idea
* brainstorm idea in a google doc
* create folder with several google docs
* maintain compendium of lore
* endlessly unsatisfied I can never satisfy my sprawling vision

Me after Twitter:
* "lol math wizards" send tweet

GalaxyKate I love universities and am excited to be working for one.

Also we should have more chaos universities with experimental non-corporate charters.

Student unions hire professors
Professor unions advertise to students
Sentient library devours students and professors
etc
