No the worst thing on the Internet
is deshi uncles trying to linguistics
it is actually the worst
Tur is a Persian exonym
Deshi uncles trying to linguistics I have read so many of these they are all horrifying
No it all ends with like horrible uncle claiming all languages are Gujarati really
And you are like uncle
And he is like HUNGARIAN IS GUJARATI
And you are like uncle that is not even Indo-European
And he is like beta, Hungary is in Europe only chup raho
And you cry bitter, bitter tears.
What no then you tell him that Gujarati is a Dravidian-Arabic creole with an Iranian substratum
That took in all its vocabulary from Hindi and Marathi in the 1500s.
Before that it was amazing.
And Marathi is a Persian-Dravidian Creole.
We should post this
See, I just want to print that out and frame it.
And cross-stitch it.
Dreamwidth is inferior to cross-stitch.
New craft hobbies.
Now with added linguistic redemption value.
