As is the case in any forum, there are just a few essential rules:

1. No bad language or inflammatory discussion

2. No discussion of the personal characteristics or motives of fellow members

3. Members should attempt to keep to the subject of the thread in which they are posting

4. If disparaging remarks about the moral character of any person (living or dead) are posted, a reference to some published authority should be cited as support and justification

5. No posting of dangerous or suspicious links (malware, adware, viruses, trojans, spam, etc.)

6. Of course nothing illegal

7. When posting a reply, please don't unnecessarily copy the whole of the post to which you are replying. Editing is a very simple and very necessary procedure.

8. When posting a reply, NEVER copy a picture that may be present in the post to which you are replying.

9. Please note that new members are expected to make at least three posts in their first two weeks.

10. The membership of people who have contributed nothing for six months will, after their having been given a reminder, be automatically cancelled.

11. Members may offer personally-owned musical items or collections for sale, to swap, or for free in the Members' Corner board, but this is not a venue for any other commerce.

I posted a question about the above post, and you have deleted it. Why? As an active user, who has posted up a HUGE amount of music on here, I would like to think I can politely ask questions.

Well since you insist, it is not the business of this forum to provide an answer. Here we only discuss linguistics. The best person to ask would probably be the authoress.

But I don't think any one actually knows the answer at present, because the "one country two systems" idea seems to have gone out the window recently.

So please don't start a whole string of replies to this subject - we are here to discuss linguistics.

Sadly it seems the number of members left will be equal to those who contribute to discussion on linguistics.  That number is one.  Linguistically, the word "one" can be used as a noun, an adjective, and a pronoun. It comes from the English word an, which comes from the Proto-Germanic root *ainaz. The Proto-Germanic root *ainaz comes from the Proto-Indo-European root *oi-no-. Compare the Proto-Germanic root *ainaz to Old Frisian an, Gothic ains, Danish en, Dutch een, German eins and Old Norse einn. Compare the Proto-Indo-European root *oi-no- (which means "one, single") to Greek oinos (which means "ace" on dice), Latin unus (one), Old Persian aivam, Old Church Slavonic -inu and ino-, Lithuanian vienas, Old Irish oin and Breton un (one). The modern Greek for one is ďarithmos" (αριθμός), from which presumably our English word arithmetic is derived.

Greek/Admin - I notice that you are posting a lot of books up in the Linguistics section.  Can you please give us assurance that this does not breach any copyright? As members of this forum, we risk being implicated in any breach.  My very basic understanding is that copyright is usually in place for 50-100 years after a creator dies - yet (for example) a recent post (Concise Encyclopedia of Philosophy of Language by Peter Lamarque) was published by Pergamon (now Elsevier) in 1997.
