Ancient Language word of the week #9
I found this weeks word for specifically this time. It is mïnen I couldn't say how to pronounce it. It means injury, harm, or disease I found it very fitting for this time of Covid19. Here are a few pronunciations that I could guess Mine-in or Mean-in. Those are my two guesses.
Last week I had my most popular post ever. https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/37153588 I will most likely do that post Bi-monthly, seeing how new users come on the forum daily. It has almost gotten 200 comments, and has 20 upvotes.
Thanks for reading. Lorderagon05
Here is my previous one/ where all the links to future ones will be.
That's the whole 4 book bundle.
Unfortunately you're not learning a language which has them, so you might not know what an umlaut is. :) Originally I was inclined to pronounce it simply as Meen-in (I didn't know any German at the time), but now my guess veers closer to an umlauted i (which doesn't exist in German, but I can still guess at how it would be pronounced).
In any case, here are some references which might be of use ...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eihwaz (Linked to in the above article)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diaeresis_(diacritic) (Also linked)
https://www.internationalphoneticalphabet.org/ipa-sounds/ipa-chart-with-sounds/ (So you can hear the IPA symbols, although some of the more specific ones are not listed. You can still get a general idea, however.)
Those bottom two are more for fun than anything else, if you'd like to dig in further; more helpful information can be found in the Wikipedia articles. :)

I don't know if you know this already, I hope that you do, but there is a book that has been recently published by Christopher Paolini that revisits Alagaësia, called the Fork, The Witch, and The Worm. It is a collection of short stories set in Alagaësia and it is very good. I will post a link to it if you want it from amazon, or you could try getting it from your library online.
