    Being a relatively new comer to this group, I often check on the profile of those who post messages.

    I note that a fair number of those I have checked seem to be multilingual. Thence my question - Is there a correlation between penile size and linguistic ability?

    No, I shall not crack any jokes about cunning linguists but I am tempted to coin "felatilist" - if it had not been coined yet. As is with postage stamps, there would be quite a bit of licking involved.....

    Yah, the longer ur dick, the mor langages u kin talk. I gess. I dont now how 2 tel if wommen talk better, may b biger tites.

    Just kidding... I doubt the correlation between cock size and linguistic ability; more likely it is the kinds of people who find this site and tend to stay. I have read enough posts by new members telling of their decisions to join the site, to realize that a lot of them are similar to mine: initially attracted to the site by the cocks, moved to stay and join by the brains.

    Of course there are a few exceptions, but the majority of the active posters on this site tend toward a "higher-than-average" intellect, and for me, that's the REAL attraction of LPSG. And in a fairly large sample size, above average intelligence will equal above average language skills.

    Isn't that typical of most forums though? The few I participate in, the regular posters are generally more intelligent than average no matter their political leanings. Also, someone with poor language skills is going to get a lot of grief from their poor spelling, grammar, thoughts, etc. I wonder if that is in effect creating a more polarized society? I know some people whose primary source of news is still the TV and am astounded by their lack of comprehensive knowledge of a lot of issues.

    A person with a weaker grasp of Englsih grammer and spelling may get teased, but I learned a long time ago that poor command of English is no reflection of a person's intelligence.

    If I were to have to express myself in, say, German, I would sound like a blabbering idiot.

    Would it be too rude to say I prefer an orgasm? :biggrin1:

    Come to think of it, the "ooh's" and "ahhh's" of orgasmic moans probably sound the same in all languages......

    I'm sure someone somewhere must have done some research into this, but I actually suspect that this isn't true, and that the phonemic distribution in one's first language plays a role in shaping the moans and groans elicited. For example, some British speakers of English who drop their "t" in speech may be more likely to have a glottal stop in their orgasm sounds, since this is a "relaxed" phoneme in their speech. Arabic or Hebrew speakers may similarly be more likely to emit forth a pharyngeal sound amid their moans, and German speakers a velar or palative fricative. In short: whatever consitutes a sound that a speaker can make effortlessly within the phonemic range of their first language may thus come into play in their vocal orgasm repertoire. Well, it's a thought anyway. :rolleyes:

    ...and yes, I know your comment was a joke - I'm just exceptionally anal sometimes. :smile:


    EDIT: the typos were eating me alive...

    I can only barely speak French (to French people it probably sounds like broken English does coming at me from a French h or f).

    Another thing, I wonder where French_h got to...

    My English is okay...

    We have larger penises so we have less inclination to prove how big we are (because they'll find out eventually), so we can spend more time on learning and making ourselves better.

    As a job to help put myself through college, I taught English to immigrants. Asian students had a vexed relationship with the glottal stop.

    As you may know, most Asian languages consist entirely of syllables that begin with a consonant and end with a vowel. A syllable which ends in a hard consonant, like the English word "stop", poses a problem. If you're a Japanese, who tries to be precise about everything, you'll pronounce it "su-to-pu"; if you're an impatient Cantonese, you'll just say "stoh".

    They found it tough to wrap their tongues around these sounds, and even harder to hear them. Consonants at the end of syllables were simply invisible to the ear. Once they did begin to hear sounds end abruptly--that is, heard a stop of some kind, glottal or otherwise--they needed to learn the difference amongst them. An even greater challenge. I can't tell you how often I was wished a Melly Clitmat.

    An important (and often hilarious) lesson in the course I taught was the glottal stop session. We'd spend a whole class period on a single exercise: singing a note on different vowels and stopping the sound abruptly. That is, closing the epiglottis.

    One of the reasons this lesson was so funny was that the sounds were not completely unfamiliar, even if the students didn't use them in speech. The glottal stop seems to be a universal sex noise.

    Think about it. If you moan (a protracted vowel sound) you sometimes stop the flow of air abruptly as tension and pleasure builds, and then release it with another moan, ususally at a lower pitch. Especially for women--it's a classic sign that she's reaching a climax, no?

    Sure enough, I move to Japan and take a Japanese lover, and guess what? He's a glottal stopper (when his mouth's not full, of course).

    I find "some British speakers of English who drop their "t" in speech"--that is, Cockneys--incredibly sexy. They sound really primal, animal, physical.

    Just my two lexemes.
