Hi all! Feel free to leave any comments on my contributions at my talk page.
Strange signs in the signature
In my signature (mach 🙈🙉🙊), I am using three ever so adorable Unicode 6.0.0 signs: SEE-NO-EVIL MONKEY ‹🙈›, HEAR-NO-EVIL MONKEY ‹🙉› and SPEAK-NO-EVIL MONKEY ‹🙊›. If your OS does not have a preinstalled font with this sign, you will need to manually install a font that features it, for instance George Douros's free font Symbola version 6.02, available from his site at Unicode Fonts for Ancient Scripts – check it out, there are plenty of fun signs (including some indecent ones)!
My main interests are in linguistics, especially in phonetics.
I live in the city of Berne in Switzerland, and so I speak the Alemannic dialect of Berne: Bernese German, which has the rare feature among Germanic languages that consonant and vowel length are independent from each other.
