No, I mean some of them accepts a minimum of two failing marks. Sorry about that.

I think the word you're looking for is "maximum".

Minimum implies "at least". Maximum implies "at most".

Cheers.

Thanks everyone for the responses and it has somehow made me more depressed but it's the truth so I'm gonna have to handle it. So I'm taking this course which is B.S Physical Therapy and I failed Anatomy Laboratory. So it is both a major subject and it has a significant relationship with whatever future job profession I'll be taking because of my course.

My friend said that I'm perfectly okay in the social field but I don't think it holds that much of an impact in comparison to grades. Thanks again and I believe I'll feel better after this.

Have you checked if your school has any sort of grade forgiveness option or such?; my school offers students to use it three times basically take the class again and old grade is replaced/erase.

PS3 region locking is only for DVD and Bluray movies. Games wise, you can play a game from any country.

I honestly wish they did. My school doesn't have such a policy though.

What is mooooo?

Some characters say "moooo" when they are annoyed by someone.
I guess it's a japanese expression but what is the exact word in English?
At least I know it's not mimic of the cow.

A silly question

If you hang your clothes out. Then it rains and the clothes are soaked. Would the clothes are affected much in anyway?
Unless it's a heavy rain or hail storm then surely the fabrics would be damaged, but how's about a normal shower?

When someone praises you, makes fun of you, tease, irritate or annoy you, replying with "mooo" is to tell them to stop doing that. And depending on your tone, you express whether you're shy, frustrated, angry or something else.

"Mooooou" is the shortcut for "Mou, yamete kudasai yo~!" which means "Please, stop that already!" or "Cut it out!". "Mou" literally means "already".

If it is acid rain I would suggest you rewash it. The acidity can fade the clothes and make them stink.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

This is more of a request than a question, per se, but presently as part of the polish phase on a series of fantasy novels I've been writing and am preparing to get published, I've been working with some linguistics professors to really flesh out and naturalize the fictional languages of the world. I've done this sort of extensive research on a number of subjects in the name of authenticity since I intend to work with this setting a great deal over the course of my career, but there comes a point in each of these processes where the research is done and I have to do lots of grunt-work.

In this case, I am now at the point where I have a number of phonologies, grammars and morphological constructs figured out for the languages, but the vocabulary is tricky because I'm working with a handful of root-affix languages. This means that the words are all formed from a pool of roots that don't actually have one defined meaning themselves, but which represent a range of related concepts and the specifics are then defined by prefixes/suffixes, etc.

What I am asking for is if people would care to help me out here--I would take note of this and credit you in the acknowledgments--is if you'd be willing to PM to me a range of simple things that come off the top of your head: very basic objects, very basic concepts, very basic descriptors. The languages that these will be used for are relatively primitive (comparable to Proto-Indo-European), so more specific concepts will evolve from these in later languages, but if you could help me compile a list of useful ideas for primitive cultures to have terms for--like 'one' or 'travel' or 'hunger'--I'd be immensely appreciative.

Start with the Swadesh list, that is supposed to be very basic vocabulary. You also might want to ask on the conlang mailing list for help.

Still I would advise you to rewash it. Rain mix with whatever gas condensed with the clouds up there, so there is still a possibility of a smell.

1. I
2. Me
3. My
4. You (single)
5. Him
6. Her
7. It
8. Our
9. You (or you'all, basically relating to a group of people in second person)
10. They
11. Them

Then to nouns :

1. It (be careful, some languages refer to neutral gender living and non-living things separately)
2. This
3. That
4. Theirs
5. Mine
6. Yours

Then to places :
1. Here
2. There
3. Nowhere/Somewhere (used to indicate an unexact location, usually an area)

And importantly, addresses to the question:

1. How
2. What
3. Who
4. When
5. Where

Not sure if this works in your case.

It would be good if you could, but not really necessary.

I used it to pass my Chinese oral exams in highschool 2 years ago. Kinda worked.....but I have been too lazy to apply it in learning Japanese. Also, I find it easier to be applied to text-based languages (English, French, Russian, Bahasa) rather than character-based languages (Japanese, Chinese, Korean).

And for some reason, I can't get it to work for Vietnamese. I can never get the words correct, or even pronounce them correctly.
