  • Hello! :) I saw you made an update/post about codex Alexandrinus and its potential usefulness for a translation from the Book of Psalms, did anything come of that?

    Unfortunately I stopped my project. I wish to get back to it anytime, but this could take either months or years... It's to Portuguese, though, and I actually used many sources, the Codex Alexandrinus being just one.

    Thanks for your comment. Would it be OK if I emailed you? I just handed in my master's thesis in theology on the Septuagint, and I'd love to ask you some questions regarding Codex Alexandrinus and the published versions of that document, I saw you wrote a bit about that/asked some questions and I'd be curious to see if you found any answers or good sources? :)

    Truth. Have seen 5, and parts of 2 others. I’m not sure I could handle them now, though.
    Yes, I did learn a bit of Tok Pisin, though I've never been to PNG. Here's a link to a little textbook I put together for students when I was teaching a course in English-based pidgins and creoles:

    Cool, thank you! What other creoles have you studied?

    Like any linguist (in the sense of academic who studies how languages work) I've looked at many creoles -- Papiamento from Curacao, the French creole of Mauritius, Jamaican, Sanan English creole from Surinam. But Tok Pisin is the only one I actually learned how to speak well enough to hold a conversation in.

    That's very cool. I presume that's because creoles give us an insight on how languages are born? What are your thoughts on Derek Bickerton? I was recently reading him.
