quick language question

Unread postby Larson E. Whipsnade » 01 Feb 2017, 20:46

There are seven Hungarians, four Iranians, and one student from Turkey, Lithuania and Russia.

Could you phrase that so it's clearer? (I mean there is one student from each of those three countries)

'Turk' to me sounds a bit like 'Jew' - I'm not comfortable with it.

Fucking snowflake.
Whoever makes himself a worm cannot complain when he is then trampled underfoot.

Over the wall I watched him move
At ease through all the guarded grove,
Then hack, and hack, and hack it down,
Until that ruin was his own.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Why that?

It's not like I'm particularly PC. But you don't say 'Greek', or 'Turk', or 'Scot' or whatever in these contexts. It just sounds ugly.

Orban leads the most right-wing government in Europe, I hear. He's put strict borders up around the country. It's surprising to me the class is so mixed in terms of nationality.

Turk doesn't sound like Jew. It sounds like berk.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Ugly, perhaps, but certainly not offensive. Turkish people often refer to themselves as Turks when speaking English.
