As a student in South Asian languages, culture and history, specialising in comparative cultures and cognitive science, I take special interest in the influence of cultural paradigms in the perception and interaction with the world in terms of development. I am also a polyglot with a strong passion for learning languages, including programming languages such as Python. Also I am firm supporter of unix and free software.

comment In IPA, what is the difference between ə and ʌ?
The rule about the unstressed [ʌ] versus stressed [ə] does not always hold true. For instance "unfair" [ʌnˈfɛər]. But I would agree that the difference between the two sounds really is insignificant.

comment in order to [gerund] or [infinitive]?
It's a handbook designed for children by an English native speaker. I'm supposed to take over her task, so I'll edit accordingly. The fact a native speaker chose to use a gerund made me hesitate. Thanks.

comment “unaccounted for externalities” vs “unaccounted externalities”
@MattЭллен: I am not looking at it from grammar rules, I am looking at it from ignorance. I simply was not sure as to what applies in this case, hence I turned to those who may know better.

comment “unaccounted for externalities” vs “unaccounted externalities”
@MattЭллен: I am in doubt because I am not a native speaker, I believed it is "unaccounted for" but one of my colleagues asserted it was "unaccounted".

Perfect, thank you, it makes much sense in this light.
