It’s been a crazy few weeks, so I haven’t had time to update anything. I’m still trying to figure out what to do with a lot of Doerfer’s Iranian materials, and still need to find good data for a few other languages.
I had to put my cat Stereo to sleep – he’s the big gray boy with me in the photo on the Elegant Lexicon main page. I’ve been absolutely crushed, so I’ve decided to add the word ‘cat’ to my list of glosses in his memory. The original Turks seem not to have been very interested in cats – they don’t do well with a nomadic lifestyle. Modern Turks are wild about cats though, so here’s to my kedi, my mushuk.
