hallöchen! I’m a Brazilian trans woman living in Germany working on Japanese dialectal fieldwork (long story). Interests include fantasy fiction, imaginary languages, free software, comic books, intersectional veganism, cute cuddly things, and supporting anticapitalist revolutions to bring down the whole rotten edifice :HeartTrans:

petty thoughts born out of exhaustion 

wish I had the time to study fantasy languages more seriously 😔

How is giving students bad grades and then punishing them for those grades supposed to make them learn better

I always feel a little bit guilty when I stop the ‘main’ work to do things like this. Granted, I think in many cases I can lose the focus optimising some detail of no import, as a form of avoidance. But my guilt is generally misplaced; whenever you're doing a repetitive task, investing to improve the process usually pays off richly.

I am doing a gig at like data entry/selection from Japanese dialectal dictionaries, v slow lexi work. (I'm getting fluent at typing IPA in X-SAMPA, for these phones at least).

At some point I realised I could optimise the workflow if I reordered the items in the order the reference uses. This required me to code a python script to normalise-decompose the diacritics to remove accent marks from rōmaji, expand macrons, and kanafy (kinṓ → kinō → kinou → きのう)
