🐌. Native speaker of American English. Linux user. Familiar with several programming languages in the procedural, OO, and functional paradigms.

Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

comment Repeating the vowel sound of the mora that precedes gemination in songs
@TsuyoshiIto: I think he's trying to say that the geminate [t̩t] can be explained as having a glottal stop in the underlying (phonemic) representation: /ʔ̩t/. This simplifies the analysis by not having to allow all the voiceless obstruents to be syllabic.
