Hi, welcome to The Anglish Moot! Thanks for your edit to the English Wordbook/C page.
Spam pages Edit
Sorry to bother you, but I want to bring to your attention that the pages listed below need deletion, as they are spam and have nothing to do with Anglish (they're written in Russian and Portuguese, for heaven's sake!); if you know an administrator, then please have them remove these pages from our Moot.

I don't know what this spam is, where it came from, or what it has to do with me. I clicked on the link and looked for a delete function but couldn't find one.
Leaf I Edit
Why have you taken away every shift that I made to the 'I' leaf? I can understand taking away a word or two that may be wrong, but getting rid of every last shift is rude, irksome, and childish.

I'm sorry about that. I know this sounds crazy but I have no memory whatsoever of changing anything other than the spelling of "let" to "lett" (so as to avoid confusion with the other, more familiar "let", with the meaning of permit, allow. Besides, Modern English "let", meaning to permit, is derived from OE "lǽtan", with one "t", whereas "let", meaning to impede, ought to be spelled with two "t"s on no less than three grounds: 1.)Conservation of the original form, within the bounds permitted both by the regular vowel and consonant shifts from OE to ME, and by the parameters of modern English phonology and orthography. 2.)Avoiding confusion over the intended meaning 3.) Keeping in step with the other Germanic languages wherever practical, which in this instance calls for maintaining a double consonant in the derivative of OE lettan, if not in pronunciation, then at least in spelling. Compare with the cognate forms in Du. "laten" vs. "letten"; Ger "lassen" vs. "verletzen" etc.) and, yes, deleting "picture", because this word is Latin to the core, and is not a Latin word borrowed into PGMc like "cheese", "butter", and "kitchen"(which are arguably more permissable as "native" word). "Picture" was evidently borrowed directly from Latin in the 15th century, and therefore, not jusitifiably a native English, let alone "Anglish" word, by any means.
As I said above I don't recall deleting your other entries. It's possible that it has something to do with the cursor on this computer which, due to an overly sensitive mouse pad, often skips erratically from one line to another writing over my own typing and perhaps deleting adjacent entries from other users as well.
'I' leaf Edit
It's cool. As soon as I wrote you I thought about how it was odd that every shift was gone and then thought that it must have been a mistake. Sorry to come at you so strongly. I do hope you will keep on neeting and weighing in on this site. Blessings on your day!

Petition for a Anglish forum on ThesholdEdit
Dear User:Speechlarer, Please find a petition for the creation of an Anglish forum of discussion on the Moot's Theshold page The_Anglish_Moot:Threshold. Please follow the guide and sign the petition along with what platform of discussion you would prefer and indicate whether you are willing to help administrate. Thanks!

- Dear User:Speechlarer, Polling has closed on the Threshold page The_Anglish_Moot:Threshold on deciding what forum we want. There was slight preference for creating a Yahoo! Group with a Facebook group. A Yahoo! Group has now been created, although I'm still creating the necessary docs for the group. Please come join us there! You are more than welcome to help us with the moderation when and if you want to (there are already a few of us volunteering). Here's the new Moot link: The Anglish Moot --Cavallero 21:12, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
- Dear Cavallero,
- thanks for tthe link. I joined the Anglish Moot yahoo group early this moring and have posted a response to this thread (http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/anglish/message/4) once early this morning, and after seeing that it had not shown up, once again about a half hour ago. I still do not see my post anywhere. Although I am now a memeber of the yahoo group, when initially creating my account I was given the choice of creating an account with yahoo US or North America, and I did create my account using yahoo US or North America, not Yahoo UK and Northern Ireland. I wonder whether this might have something to do with it? If you could offer any help on this matter I would greatly appreciate it.
- Speechlarer, that's quite odd. You haven't shown up on the group list as a member either. One of the members (SabbathStone) is from the US, so I assume he hasn't had problems with joining as he's made a reply. I guess it could potentially be a Yahoo! ID problem, but I don't see why is should be.
- If you're comfortable with sharing the information you could give me your e-mail address and I'll invite you directly, then, you could wipe the e-mail address off the Wiki again before anyone sees.
