    I donʼt know English very well, but I like a video from Dr Geoff Lindsey: Why these English phonetic symbols are all wrong.

    It could partly explain:

    • Why some cannʼt handle IPA;
    • Phonology isnʼt just a table of sounds but also rules for changing or connection with other sounds. For example, the article should explain not only how pronounce long vowels but also add phonology examples and why theyʼre occurence in this positions.

    By the way, If I speak about Ukrainian, Latin and Greek h usually donʼt have such problem as English h which can be г or х (from Russian infuence and new Russian standard pronounce, before Russian г was simillar to Ukrainian). Okay, there may be a problem with Greek h at the start of word which can be removed: гіпо·потам (btw, the other name is бегемот) but іпо·дром, гомо·сексуал but омо·нім etc. There were no problem with similarity of combined words in old Ukrainian spellings, but this harmony was destroyed after Soviet Russian influence.

    I guess, he meant just three words: вертоліт (vertolêt), гелікоптер (helikopter) and ґвинтокрил (gvyntokryl). Thereʼre tryings to pin gvyntokryl as «a rotor-winged aircraft» («gyrodyne»?).

    Just interesting. Is there any search engine which can filter out some language(s) like Google, for example lr=-lang_ru remove Russian language from search.

    At this time in Ukrainian infosphere:

    • Good words and mourning to Queen.
    • How should we write: Karl Ⅲ by tradition or Čarlz Ⅲ by pronounce. King/Queenʼs or similar titulesʼ names are usually adapted. And I donʼt know from where it came.

    I haven't read the manga

    Anime is based on finished ranobe.

    The only real problem I have with the show is that I'm pretty confident we'll never see a real ending.

    And if I didnʼt mistake, the last season will be in the next year.

    Edit. The ranobe itʼs still kinda ongoing but with other name as Classroom of the Elite of the 2nd-year. So, the 3rd anime season will finish all the 1st-year.
