Phonotactics: Don't put that there!

For those not familiar with the term, phonotactics is the linguistic phenomenon which controls which structures of words are acceptable.

Let's make up two words. Clestrath and Pkan. Try to pronounce them. Assuming you're an English monoglot, you probably found the first far easier to say than the second.

This is because the first complies with English phonotactics - even though it's longer, the two consonant clusters "cl" and "tr" are acceptable....

Weird.

Posted October 3rd, 2009 at 03:13 AM by Lady Gaga (Haus of Gaga)

Hah, do you guys want to know something weird about me? Well, during weekdays, I can only wake up at around 7:30 AM, if that. I always want to sleep in. Though, on weekends, I wake up as early as I can, like around 6:30 AM. Its not on purpose, but it is just the way my brain functions. Ive done it for years. Weird, huh? Any weird things about you?
