Shouldn't you study aviation instead of English philology if you want to be a stewardess? And why r u so interested? That is very cute actually :D

I should, probably that was one of my biggest mistakes:D it is how it is..but I'm never going to quit working for it, never ever, that passions grows stronger day by day and I can't stop it. I'm checking the schedule of recruitment days eveeeeryyy day and as soon I see it, I will apply

If Kindred starts primarily seeing play as a non-jungle role, will you be fine with that, or will you rebalance them to fit the jungle role you initially set out for?

I can't answer that in a vacuum but overall our philology is that players should be able to do whatever they can so long as it's healthy for the game. Playing a champ in an unexpected role is fine. Playing a champ in an unexpected role that shits all over other champs in that role is not.

Here's a quick summary of the subjects I'm having at my university:
1) Comparative philology - It's basically comparing languages, their vocabulary, idiom and grammatical structures. Through this we can identify them and their language-family.
2) Diachronic linguistics - It's about the history of languages. Where did they come from? How did the develop? How did they evolve? What changes happened and why did these changes happen? To a smaller extent does this class also contain the field of etymology.
3) Norwegian - Everything about the Norwegian language, from grammar to idiom to vocabulary.
4) Swedish - The same as Norwegian class, but then with the Swedish language.
Note that the first two subjects apply to all languages in the world and not just to one specific.
Other classes I have from time to time are:
1) Culture class - Everything about the Nordic culture(s).
2) History - General world history. It functions as the basic for diachronic linguistics.
3) Standard œconimcs - Self-explaining.
4) Cognitive linguistics - Interpreting language in terms of the concepts.
5) Phonetics - The study of the physical properties of speech sound production and perception.
6) Syntax - This is all about how words combine to form grammatical sentences.
And several other classes, but I only have those for like three à four months ,, I hope this was somewhat what you were hoping to hear from me. I at least really enjoyed telling about my study, hihi =D

What exactly does your Linguistics course consist of? Because I'm thinking of doing a similar thing, but I'm far more interested in the Etymology of languages rather than just learning them.

Similar to many studies, linguistics focuses on many topics. The etymology of languages is one of the subjects you'll be dealing with. I can never specify enough that linguistics does not mean you're just learning a foreign language. I also study Swedish and Norwegian at my university, but those are my minors. If I'd just study languages in terms of grammar and vocabulary, then my study would've been called simply Norwegian or Swedish, and not linguistics ;p ,, Here's a quick summary of the subjects I'm having at my university:
1) Comparative philology - It's basically comparing languages, their vocabulary, idiom and grammatical structures. Through this we can identify them and their language-family.

5) Phonetics - The study of the physical properties of speech sound production and perception.
6) Syntax - This is all about how words combine to form grammatical sentences.
7) Economics - Self-explanatory
8) European Politics - Politics within nations that are part of the European Union and often of the major world countries outside of Europe.

Thanks a lot for this demonstration. Are you studying linguistics and its branches like applied linguistics, discourse analysis.. or pure linguistics?

will you talk a little bit about the classes you take as a linguistics student and just the stuff you study in general? i read your FAQ and whoa you're amazing. and super gorgeous too c:

I have four subject all four years long, and the rest of the subjects vary per period. The four 'standard' classes are:
1) Comparative philology - It's basically comparing languages, their vocabulary, idiom and grammatical structures. Through this we can identify them and their language-family.
2) Diachronic linguistics - It's about the history of languages. Where did they come from? How did the develop? How did they evolve? What changes happened and why did these changes happen? To a smaller extent does this class also contain the field of etymology.

Have you thought of becoming a linguist, someone who studies languages? I met a man at work who pursued the profession, and he speaks about ten languages fluently. It reminded me of you! I think you'll be perfectly wonderful at whatever you decide to do, though. x

I also study comparative philology and diachronic linguistics at my university. Both are two of my minors =) ,, But since I'm able to speak in as good as twenty languages, I rather be an interpreter than an actual linguist who does research about the background and evolution of languages :$

bare spørg marta hvorfor hun ikke vil snakke med mig mere på ask.fm. og hvad betyder dette sammenlignende filologi og diakrone sprogvidenskab =)) jeg kender ikke disse fag teyla^_^

Sorry, it's hard for me to explain what it is in Danish, since I can't speak it fluent, so I'll go with English this time :$ ,, Comparative philology means that you try to define certain language-families and try to find the things these languages have in common. Besides that you also compare different language-families to see their differences and similarities and so on. Diachronic linguistics is the study about the history and development of a languages throughout history, it's probably my favourite subject ^-^

أحياناً تغردي عن أشياء يعني لا تخطر على بال الواحد, كيف يعني وش تكتبي في ججل يعني مثلاً كيف خطر على بالش تكتبي عن الفرزدق و جرير فجأة !!!

هههههه, الجلوس على الإنترنت يفتح لكِ آفاق واسعة جداً. البحث و الفضول لا ينتهيان, حين أقرأ مقالة أو أي شيء أرى كلمة واحدة تُثير فيي حب الإطلاع فأبحث عنها وتبدأ عملية التفرع بين السطور يوجد تاريخ و أحداث. القراءة بين السطور أعتقد أنها باب موصل لذلك.
مثال فرزدق وَ جرير: سَتُذهلين الآن:
كنتُ أقرأ رواية لميلان كونديرا وجاء على ذكر نيتشه, فبحث عنه و قرأت أنه كان يدرس شيء يُسمى Philology أي فقه اللغة المُقارن.
ثم قرأت عن فقه اللغة ثم للغة العربية ثم لعلم النحو ومؤسسه أبو أسود الدؤلي فتوصلت لفرزدق و قرأت عن علاقته بجرير !!
أرأيت هذا الجسر الطويل , كله من بين السطور خرج : )
