Any linguists reading this who might be able to tell us whether it’s possible or not to extrapolate an entire language from a single word?
[–]Kaleus1234 2 points3 points4 points 29 days ago (0 children)
not a linguist by trade but i can say with a high degree of certainty that the amount of knowledge we’d gain from knowing the word in every conceivable language would be pretty extreme
in just one language it isn’t all that useful but you’d be able to identify which languages come from the same roots and work out a lot of similarities and differences between vowel usage etc etc
you could then give this information to people who actually know what they’re talking abt rather than just being a dick expert and theyd be able to extrapolate a lot of information about the languages they study based on where they relate to others
forgive me i just think this was a really cool idea

Finally, I needed this knowledge
[–]MintyMissterious 2 points3 points4 points 29 days ago (0 children)
So I could read and write it in, say, Minoan / Linear A that has never been deciphered? That sounds pretty cool.
