This quiz guesses your age based on your answers and it guessed I was fifty-fucking-four.

29! Thanks quiz that was a pleasant surprise, I thought it’d be like “you’re probably 80”

My favorite question was “Friends, How I Met Your Mother, or NEITHER” bc I really feel those caps

I am apparently 34, how exciting

im 42 god damn it

it says I’m eighteen wow, how can I be eighteen if I know what a werther’s original is

Stunning photos of tears under a microscope vary by emotion

"The project, called "The Topography of Tears," captures unique moments in human experience, but there’s also a scientific reason why every tear looks so different. There are three different types of tears: basal (lubricating), reflex (responding to stimuli) and psychic (triggered by emotion). Each type of tear contains different organic substances, and the molecular makeup depends on the causative agent. For instance, emotional tears contain the neurotransmitter leucine enkephalin, a natural painkiller that the body releases to mitigate stress."

would it make sense for alternian to develop caste-based accents, considering both the existence of the caste system and that the comic heavily implies that trolls of similar or the same blood castes live together? so it would be like a combination of regional/class divided accents like languages on Earth get

slipstreamborne:

the point i’m trying to get to is dave learning alternian from tavros and ending up with a brownblood accent you could bounce a rock off of

Disclaimer:  I am not a linguist by any means.  Specifically, I flunked out of the one college-level linguistics class that I attempted.  So all I legit know/understand about accents is how they interact at a cultural anthropological level, not language acquisition/evolution/mouth-sound-sciency-bits. 

THAT SAID, LET US APPROACH THIS AS A WORLD-BUILDING PROBLEM.  Broadly accents develop among groups that are separated by geography or various social boundaries.  And while you can pick up/lose accents later in life you start out sounding like the group of people/media influences around you when you’re first learning a language.

Accents for trolls are interesting to think about because on Alternia a) each troll is raised by a lusus incapable of speech; b) many (most?) trolls appear to live more or less removed from other trolls, and therefore with few opportunities to converse orally with a peer group; c) there’s a rigid social hierarchy in place that literally and metaphorically divvies up the population to ensure adherence to the hemocaste system; d) there is still some sort of established education system in place and empire-run infrastructure in place so that even the most solitary and wilderness-bound of trolls has access to computer tech; and e) there’s a high degree of variability in tooth shape among trolls, which can alter the pronunciation of certain sounds.

How could each of these affect the development of any caste-based accents?  Well…
