Language-analysis

things i learnt regarding learning languages

recently i finished second stage of linguistic olympiad, which focuses on translating rare languages based on logical analysis, basically you don’t know the language but there is a logic rule you have to guess to translate things, yeah, its fun, now im waiting for the results of the second stage.

the thing is, after practicing, doing many problems from previous years, i found myself understanding languages’ rules easier. i’ve always been convinced that to learn language is not to learn the rules by heart, but to understand them, so here are my tips based on that:

1. native speakers are your best resource. some may disagree due to them often not being aware of certain grammar rules, but thats the point. learn the usage, not the rules. rules will come naturally to you when you analyse them for yourself based on using the language. 

2. ive been learning russian for almost 2 years now and my teacher has been focusing on remembering the rules, as if thats the best way to learn the language. so we didnt have much access to any context, not to mention poorly made textbooks. but now that ive become familiar with lots of usage, i dont need to stress about the rules, but base the grammar on previous, similiar contexts.

3. you dont need the rules unless youre majoring philology. for real, i understand that its not your native language, but whats so bad about treating it as one? learn it just like kids would. use it.

4. about using it, put yourself in native speaker’s position, change the language of your fav sites, talk to people even if you dont know much yet, stop stressing about grammar. imagine people talking to you without using cases, conjugations - youre still gonna understand them, so why not start with that yourself?

summary:

- analyse the grammar yourself instead of learning written rules (thats also gonna make you remember it better)

- vocabulary > grammar

- make friends with native speakers

- embarass yourself, make mistakes, talk bullshit - its all a way to success

here’s another one i thought of


what if humans are the only ones capable of being offended?

like, an alien says, casually “i don’t like you” and the human… reacts?

the alien is all “am… i not using that word correctly? like is to indicate a preference for? and I have no particular preference for you human we just met?”

and the human is like “first of all, how dare you“

and the alien doesn’t understand why the human is angry? there was nothing about the value of human in the statement, so why did the alien’s statement distress them so?? the feeling of liking (or absence thereof) was completely dependent upon the [internal thinking mechanism process] of the alien???

and like 30 minutes of language analysis later, they come to the conclusion that, because the human is new, there is no reason for their presence to cause a pleasant feeling (which is liking? the alien guesses), that the alien wasn’t trying to cause offense (OF COURSE NOT, THEY DON’T HAVE A DEATH WISH), so the human is just like “oh, ok, i guess i’ll just have to grow on ya!” *failwink*

and then there’s the lightbulb moment for the alien, like

OH. This is why humans are aggressively social. pets/hugs/touches everything. forms pack bonds so quickly and fiercely. They like things. and they want to be liked in return.

Human Pose Detection - Mining Body Language from Videos

Machine Learning investigation from samim examines body language in video using recently released open-source code library OpenPose:

From Gene Kelly’s Step-Dance to Bruce Lee’s Kung-Fu — iconic movement has made history. Communicating through Body Language is an ancient art form, currently evolving in fascinating ways: Computationally detecting human body language is becoming effective and accessible. This experiment explores enabling technologies, applications & implications.

For over 20 years, Motion Capture has enabled us to record actions of humans and then use that information to animate a digital character or analyse poses. While movie makers and game developers embraced such technologies — it until recently required expensive equipment which captured only few aspects of the overall performance.

Today, a new generation of machine learning based systems is making it possible to detect human body language directly from images. A growing number of research papers and open-source libraries addresses key aspects: Body, Hand, Face, Gaze Tracking. Identity, Gender, Age, Emotion and Muscle strain Detection. Action Classification & Prediction. We now can…

body language analysis series;

(1/7) Jeon Jeongguk ;

The way he carries himself; with Jeongguk in particular there’s a big difference between the him off today (YNWA era) and let’s say, Debut era, because he was just lil baby back then. So, he hadn’t yet developed his personality quite as strongly, he was still growing into himself quite a bit.

Jeongguk’s current day body language is the only thing I’ll be addressing because it’s the most relevant and actuate of his adult/developed personality.

Anyways, Jeongguk’s body language is CRISP, oh boy he’s super duper easy to read. This is pretty heavily due to the fact that he’s a physical person in general, less verbal, he tends to rely on physical intent and expressions to communicate his thoughts and feelings. So when/what he’s feeling, it tends to light up like Christmas lights, even if he isn’t saying how he’s feeling verbally, it reflects so super clearly.

Kaisoo Analysis : Body Language ( Part 2)

3 - Physical Intimacy :

In the human body, the most vulnerable areas, are considered the neck, the face and the torso ( it contains most of our vital organs such lungs and heart ). If you do not like someone or if you are not close to them ( in other words, you don’t trust them), you will not give them access to those ‘vulnerable’ areas. You will always angle your torso away, cover you neck or look away even without realizing it. For example, in metro/subway stations, you will notice how everyone is almost always ‘curling’ into themselves around strangers. That’s mainly because the brain signals to the body whether that someone is 'safe’ to be around or not and the body reacts accordingly. Therefore, the more comfortable you are around someone, the more trusting and open your body language would be with them. 

By observing Kaisoo for several years now, I noticed how unguarded their bodies seem to be around each other. Personal space is not much of an issue in their interactions. They don’t flinch away from physical contact, even if it is initiated by either of them in a unexpected way.

 I find this is quite interesting because out of all the EXO members, I would say that those two are the most conscious of their personal and physical space. This can be seen in the way they shy away from fanservice, unlike some of the other members. They also tend to stick to the ‘corners’ in crowded stages, areas or choose to remain behind the rest, slight pressed to them. Those are all clues/indications of an introverted body language. So for them to be perfectly okay with little to almost no personal space between them, that’s an undeniable sign of how close/intimate they are. 

Note the pictures below.

Notice how they heads almost always angled towards one another in most of the pictures/gifs above. There is an evident natural ease in their bodies when they’re touching.

I also observed how they tend to press up against each other when seated or standing next to one another.

Also, in most off-stage group pictures they take, they are often maintaining bodily contact, gravitating to one end of the queue or to the corner.

They also maintain physical contact when there is no reason for either of them to be close.

 In this picture below, Kai had no actual reason to press up against Kyungsoo. As you can see, there is enough space for him to stand elsewhere.

Also, technically, if Kai wanted to balance himself, he didn’t have to wrap his hands around Kyungsoo’s waist in this picture below. He could’ve easily folded them behind his back.

Same observation :

In here, I can’t see the need in Kai wanting to hold Kyungsoo’s hand. They were already next to each other.

Also, Kyungsoo had no immediate reason to cling to Kai’’s back/waist in here either.

 or here

What I found most intriguing is how receptive Kyungsoo is of the contact. He almost never pulls away or rejects Kai. It’s incredibly trusting how he even allowed Kai to touch his neck in several occasions. The neck is the part that we ,as humans, feel most protective of. Even if a family member were to try and touch your neck directly, you will unconsciously flinch or pull away because it is an instinctive response. However Soo displays no such hesitance. It’s interesting.

Something else to note is that whenever they whisper to each other, they expose their necks to the other person easily and without much though. You don’t notice a flinch or a hesitation in the contact. 

I have one more section left to cover in my analysis and I would like to leave it for another last post as I seem to be unable to upload anymore pics for some reason. I apologize for having to stop here. 

As always, I’d love to thank all the creators of the gifs and pics used in this post, none of them are mine. Also thank  you to whoever reading this :)

I think one of the most important things my teachers stressed when it came to writing texts was that you should use connectives - your essay/text/whatever will be easier to read if you don’t start every sentence with “and” and actually connect your sentences. So here are a few words you can use to structure your text.

Swedish Startup Uses AI to Figure Out What Dolphins Talk About
After mastering 40 human languages, a Swedish startup has turned to dolphins, hoping to use its language-analysis software to unlock the secrets of communication employed by the aquatic mammals.

‘Using technology from artificial intelligence language-analysis company Gavagai AB, researchers from Sweden’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology will begin compiling a dolphin-language dictionary. The software will monitor captive bottlenose dolphins at a wildlife park about 90 miles south of Stockholm, the company said in an emailed statement Wednesday.’

Interesting. The facility being referred to appears to be https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolm%C3%A5rden_Wildlife_Park

Kaisoo Analysis : Body Language ( Part 1)

When you are attracted to someone or feel a certain intimate pull towards them, whether you are conscious of it or not, your body will expose you.  Unlike the mouth, the body does not lie. It essentially behaves upon instincts, therefore bypassing the process of filtering that thoughts/mental conceptions systematically go through in conversations. For example, someone frightens you, you jump away while screaming. You don’t plan your reaction, you just do. Someone is saying something that you do not like or disagree greatly with, you fold your arms tightly around your chest without even realizing it.

I’ve been studying psychology for 5 years as an option class alongside my main Masters in literature and I was fortunate enough to have great psychology professors. We talked about various themes and aspects of the human mind as well as the body. What I am going to use in this analysis is knowledge that I’ve gained through the courses and my own personal opinions/readings. I wanted to apply that on the case study of Kaisoo. The conclusion does not matter as much to me as the freedom to explore this option.

I’m going to provide a list of clues and behavioral patterns that the body of a male exhibits when attracted or feel emotionally connected to someone else. Those clues must not be taken separately but it’s rather the whole of them together that might signal an attraction/pull of a certain depth/degree.

1) The head tilt :

Whenever a certain someone is speaking and you always find yourself unconsciously titling your head ( to one side, sometimes alongside angling your body as well) while looking at them. Not once or twice but often around them and for a considerable period of time. That means that they hold your interest, in more than one way. It might not be interest in the physical sense but  they do somehow  ‘fascinate’ you, whether intellectually or by just being who they are. It mostly translates into you liking that person,appreciating how they speak and who they are in general.

I noticed that Kai does have a tendency of doing this while staring at Kyungsoo. I’ve observed Kai in several interviews and he does pay great attention to whoever speaking ( due to his personality/polite upbringing). However, what made me decide to add this in here is the fact he does it even when Kyungsoo is not talking or the focus of the conversation, like in here :

In the gif below,  I want you to take notice and compare the difference between Kai’s posture and Luhan’s ( The blond behind Kyungsoo). Both are actually looking at Soo. Who looks far more interested/engaged in your opinion ?

Now, Note the way Kai angles his head and body in the examples below.

His body is displaying clues of interest. The torso and the legs angle at where the person unconsciously want to be. 

2 - The Eyes

Eyes are a fundamental part of how we communicate with one another. . A glare, a glance, a gaze, a stare, the direction/duration of it ( up-down, down-up, brief, long, darting, fixed..) all mean different things. In case of attraction, how you look at your interest and how you feel about them usually go hand in hand. Also, personality and self-confidence play a great role in determining how you look at someone you like/admire.

If you’re confident and usually the type who’s open about how they feel, your stare would be long, fixed and ‘open’. In the case of Kai, he does stare at Kyungsoo quite often. However what’s peculiar about his staring is how deep and honest it is. He does not hide it nor does he seem to be conscious of it at times. Some believe that he stares at everyone the same but I do believe there is a difference. 

Here are some pics/gifs of what I have mentioned above :

His eyes also tend to ‘soften’.

Now Kyungsoo is different, he seems almost unable to hold Kai’s gaze for too long when he is looking at him directly. In most of the instances I found, Soo is almost always staring when Kai is not looking back or unaware, which I find quite interesting.

The gif below is clear indication of how  flustered he seems under the attention. Form the darting eyes, to the evident gulp and the tight timid smile. He is projecting typical clues of being nervous. 

However, note how ‘open’ his face is when he meets Kai’s eyes. His smile always genuine, teeth shown. 

I think there isn’t much to say on this :) I will prepare the second part next as this post got too long and it’s getting quite late here. There are still some other clues to cover. I will get to it as soon as I can. I will see you soon. 

TO BE CONTINUED 

PS : I would like to thank all the creators for the gifs and the pics. They are not mine, they belong to their respective owners. 

A Vision of Gillovny: That Time That Gillian Wrote RPF:

First Meet Ben:

At times, Caitlin..provides somewhat aimless comic relief between her and the love-interest (though very smart, resource linguist) Ben. I say “somewhat,” because I sorta liked their jokey conversations, which provided nice comic relief and fun couple bantering, in between moments of very intense drama and suspense theatricals. - A Vision of Fire Book Review

A definition of linguistics:   Any analysis of language, including 8th-grade grammar, can be called linguistics. As recently as 200 years ago, ordinary grammar was about the only kind of linguistics there was. Today a linguist may be a person who learns foreign languages, but the term usually refers to people who devote themselves to analyzing the structure of language. Many linguists concentrate on the history of a language; others study the way children learn to speak; others analyze the sounds of a language—and still others just study English grammar, a subject so big that you could easily spend your entire life on it.

Which kind of reminds me of someone…hmm

Q: Does he actually talk like that?

Gillian: Yeah, he does! But mostly when he’s doing interviews. I mean, I think it’s because he’s got such a vast knowledge of words. He’s studied the theory of words. He pulls it out when it’s needed most, like in interviews.

Do you ever feel dumb reading his interviews?

Gillian: I think, in general, reading my interviews next to David’s interviews I always feel kind of not-there upstairs.

TV Hits, March 1996

From the man himself:

“But no, I still like language a little too much to call myself Beckettian. He is very austere, and I like fooling around with words. I guess I’m more Joycean, although that’ll sound really pretentious.” - David Duchovny NYT 2015

And Gillian Caitlin and Ben have breakfast “appointments”

It seems like these two like having breakfast together too:

Q: Your former “X-Files” co-star, Gillian Anderson, recently published her first novel, too. So, in a sense, did Agents Scully and Mulder end up together after all? 

David:  No. I think it’s very rare to have two writers in the household. Isn’t it? There was a rumor a couple of years ago that we were living together.

Q: Do you think of your work as being in the tradition of Samuel Beckett or are you more of a Gillian Anderson? 

David: I didn’t read Gillian’s book. We just had breakfast a few days ago, and she didn’t even mention that she had one.

NYT, 2015

Ben also shares some curious habits, including a quirk on the subway:

Strangely, he’s not the only one who does this:

But it seems like Ben may never have asked her on a date:

Hmm…

But in the end, this is all that matters:

Which is why we should all be grateful for the Kaisoo stans out there who take the time and effort to make these awesome-ass posts :P

A Long Post About Tsubasa, Language and Culture

A fun “but what if?” to think about pertaining to Tsubasa Family is the language gap. Like we all know that there is one and Mokona is the translation matrix but what if the translation isn’t foolproof?

On the very simplest level this would result in accents. Kurogane would have a Japanese accent and I can’t get it out of my head that Valeria was a Scandinavian-ish country and Celes some combination of Celtic and medieval Russian culture so Fai’s accent would be something to behold wow. I can’t think of what language Syaoran and Sakura would speak and imagine our dimension wouldn’t have a comparable one, but basically they’d have practically the same accent, which Sakura would notice after a while and be like…huh.

But the magical formula for Mokona’s translation is probably altered world to world. I imagine that people don’t hear others speaking whatever their personal language is, but that Mokona just translates everything to the most widely used language in the area her magic covers. This would result in characters’ accents being more or less pronounced depending on the world. In Tokyo and Yasha Kurogane probably had only a mild accent, for example, while Fai’s was very pronounced. In a country that spoke a duplicate of Syaoran’s language, he wouldn’t have an accent at all according to the others. I imagine this really shaking the Family up for the first few worlds.

Another thing about a translation matrix like this would be that there’s literally no way to make up words - there would be words that simply didn’t translate. Kurogane’s language may have three words for something that Fai has never heard of, etc., and this could result hilariously. These words would either be translated to the closest thing or just not at all; imagine all the “wait what?"s and "come again?"s. There might even be words for emotions that wouldn’t translate (German has super long combined words for feelings that native English speakers haven’t even considered, for example). Culture and worldview are largely tied to language - go ask a linguist - so I think there could be some really interesting conundrums there as well.

And different languages have different metaphors for things! I can’t imagine that Mokona’s matrix works well enough to avoid misunderstandings there - it’s probably like a slightly more sophisticated Google Translate. There’s only so much one can do. So imagine all the crazy stuff these guys hear from each other! In English we refer to turning someone down as "friendzoning.” In German this is “giving them a basket.” I’d have to look stuff up for other languages but basically it’d be hilarious if Mokona translated these things literally according to the language of the world they were in. What if even words were translated literally? The German word for mustache translates literally to “over lips beard.” This is my favorite headcanon to think about.

The ways sentences are phrased can be different too. I had a German aunt whose English sentences could sometimes be a little odd. I watched a movie in German where “speaking through mimic” was said as “talking with hands and feet.”

This is really long and only barely talks about culture (I’m not even gonna delve into that) but I can see this being an interesting obstacle for Tsubasa Family. I imagine Fai’s language(s) (don’t tell me Valeria and Celes have the same language I will fight you) being kind of the “odd one out” of the bunch (we’ve seen clearly that his culture is the most different). So while he’s already a pretty eccentric guy, the way he says things must make him seem even weirder. Just because of how the translation works.

tl;dr: imagine if Mokona’s translation matrix was imperfect or slightly simpler than we always assume. There would be all kinds of interesting communication gaps.

It would be even more interesting to see the Family pick phrases and words and customs up from each others’ languages and cultures as time progresses.
