The BS-Wrestling Pit / Re: Language acquisition - must it start with the basics?
« Last post by Calach Pfeffer on September 30, 2018, 05:46:30 AM »
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theories_of_second-language_acquisition

"Each of these theories can be thought of as shedding light on one part of the language learning process; however, no one overarching theory of second-language acquisition has yet been widely accepted by researchers."

Representing the above claim as meaning "no one really knows..." is maybe unfair but we are here to wrestle the bs so we'd best get muddy

According to wikipedia, no one really knows how second languages are acquired.

What Wikipedia page suggested this?

Secrets of "fan death" revealed - it was never about the asphyxiation.

Unusual Death Reported

The body of a foreign teacher was found today.  He appeared to have been killed in a freak accident which resulted in a ceiling fan being inserted into his nether regions.  The medical examiner did note that the fan appeared to be very well lubricated, which made removing it from the body much easier.

A full suspension bike with knobby tires is really only for highly technical cross country riding. You see it on consumer bikes because the consumer market is a crock. Lots of technical stuff sold because it looks cool. Even front suspension is mostly unnecessary on a road bicycle.

For the record my bicycle's an MTB with front suspension and I mostly ride on paved roads. But it's China paved road and that sometimes means big holes and long stretches of lumpy mud so... But I didn't really make the purchase decision thinking that hard about road conditions. I'm just more used to hybrids than actual road bikes.

I didn't know bikes had rear suspension. The mind boggles!
