(17:37:25) zfe: cool

(17:42:24) zfe: can you privately own one

(17:42:28) zfe: in bangladesh?


(17:45:47) ragib: zfe, no i guess

(17:46:57) firespeaker: ... *be* the mafia

(17:46:59) ragib: hm

(17:47:18) zfe: "be" is more proper

(17:47:30) firespeaker: I suspect if you were that rich, you probably could own a tiger

(17:47:47) TinoDidriksen: Legally, only if you build a zoo.

(17:47:50) firespeaker: whatever laws exist could be avoided by payments to the right officials

(17:48:01) firespeaker: TinoDidriksen: I'm not talking legally

(17:48:08) firespeaker: TinoDidriksen: this is Bangladesh we're talking about

(17:48:23) zfe: well, buying a zoo license

(17:48:30) zfe: is not that expensive probably

(17:48:41) firespeaker: zfe: but there would probably be restrictions associated with it

(17:48:46) firespeaker: like letting people in to see your tiger

(17:48:52) zfe: sure

(17:48:58) zfe: but who told you i will keep the tiger in a cage?

(06:02:06) Kesuari: (there is, i think, a certain amount of regular voicing and devoicing of stops and /tS/~/dZ/ (which might better be called /c/ and /J\/ even if that isn't their phonetic rendition) IMD. I have heard that it's not uncommon in AuE for voiced stops to be totally unvoiced and unvoiced aspirated, though i'm not sure if that's true for me.)

(06:02:44) [me]: that's like Werner's law

(06:03:03) Kesuari: or the second sound shift of german.

(06:03:19) Kesuari: which is like Werner's

(06:03:40) Kesuari: also fits into this neck of the woods better e.g. chinese and many other asian langs

(06:05:30) [me]: English:PIE::Australian English:Proto Germanic

(06:05:33) [me]: or at least in 2000 years

(06:06:02) [me]: lord help us if Middle English becomes proto-World
