#پارسی در میان ۱۰ زبان ماندگار باستانی
The 10 Oldest Languages Still Spoken In The World Today
نشریه معتبر کالچر مقاله ای درباره برخی #زبان های باستانی دنیا Image
و تعداد گویِشوَران آن منتشر کرده است که #ایران را نیز جزو 10 زبان باستانی زنده و پویا می داند که تا امروز به آن تلکم می شود.
در بخش هایی از مقاله گفته شده که «غیرممکن است که بگوییم زبانی از زبان دیگر قدیمی‌تر است چون همه آن‌ها به اندازه خود بشر قدمت دارند. با گفته شدن این مورد، هر یک از زبان‌هایی که در زیر به آن‌ها اشاره شده چیزی خاص دارند – چیزی باستانی – که آن‌ها را از بقیه متمایز می‌کند.»

This is a form of privilege not often spoken about.

It is not “just” the money but the financial literacy, the comfort navigating certain spaces, feeling is belonging vs #impostersyndrome. It affects ability to do unpaid internships. It affects who is bullied. #MedTwitter
Women of more affluent families may not be the ones targeted by or vulnerable to slimy professors too.

Learning requires a “safe space” in reality as well as in your own head. #MedEd has a LONG way to go before #education spaces are truly open to all. #MedTwitter #equity

#LanguageTrivia: A common catchphrase in English language for speech or text being indecipherable to a person is - "It's all Greek to me!" [1/n]
The genesis of this phrase is often cited as dating back to 1599 when Shakespeare's Casca conspiring against Julius Caesar said, “Those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads, but, for mine own part, it was Greek to me.” [2/n]
However, prior to its usage by Shakespeare, English poet Gascoigne, circa 1566, while interpreting an Italian comedy into english wrote, "This geare (talk) is Greeke to me; either it hangs not well together, or I am very dull of understanding: speak plaine, I pray you.” [3/n]

In the early part of the first millennium CE, the #IndoEuropean language known as Proto-#Germanic diverged into an East branch (which included #Gothic) and a Northwest branch.

Northwest then split into West and North branches when Proto-#Norse developed in #Scandinavia. Image
Until the 8th century, #Germanic #languages, including Proto-#Norse, were written in Elder Futhark, the earliest #runic #alphabet.

The name #Futhark comes from the initial phonemes in the names of the first six #runes:
ᚠ ᚢ ᚦ ᚨ ᚱ ᚲ

By the beginning of the #Viking Age around 800 CE, Proto-#Norse had evolved into Old Norse, and #Scandinavia's writing system transitioned from the 24 #runes of Elder #Futhark to Younger Futhark's 16 runes.

The #Swedish #Sparlösa #Runestone from ~800 CE features both #alphabets. Image
