A scathing attack on Arabic, English, and perhaps other languages (1)
  • The hymn [coptic]ton ;anaton[/coptic]:
    http://tasbeha.org/hymn_library/view/337
    My main comments on this hymn are as follows:
    1. note the phrase [coptic]ke tyn analum'in[/coptic]:
    ♪ [coptic]ke[/coptic]∆ [coptic]ty[/coptic]▲[coptic]n a[/coptic]↔[coptic]na[/coptic]↔[coptic]lu[/coptic]▲[coptic]m'[/coptic]↑[coptic]in[/coptic] ♪ shows us the elevation with the word "Your ascension", so that the music is congruent with the word. Compare that to ▼ وصعودك↓
    2. the phrase "[coptic]cou `ntyc ouranyc[/coptic]":
    ♪ [coptic]c[/coptic]▼[coptic]ou `[/coptic]↑↑[coptic]nty[/coptic]↑↑[coptic]c ou[/coptic]▲[coptic]ra[/coptic]↑[coptic]ny[/coptic]↑↑[coptic]c[/coptic] ♪
    which goes without saying that the tune is high to denote "into heaven"; as compared to ▼ إلي  السموات ↓

    Edit: a clarification at the end of the second paragraph...

    no one cares. all just want something to understand and sometimes just argue
  • Completely agree. Just hope that people do start to care...
