Blessรจd are the Bless’d, for They Shall Receive Blessings

Long, long ago, back before the Deseret Alphabet was even a gleam in Brigham Young’s eye, before the United States was born, before the Pilgrims landed on Cape Cod—even before Canada was discovered—the English language was a very different animal that went by the name of “Middle English” and spent most of its time contemplating what Aprill with its shoures soote had done to the droghte of March. The rules were different in those days. ร†, ร, รž, and วท were still part of the alphabet. Vowels were real vowels, and consonants were real consonants. Nobody had time for any of this sissy silent letter crap. If a word was spelled “knight,” then it started with a k-sound and had a guttural gurgling in the middle, by Wลdan. If a word looked like it had two syllables, then it had two syllables, like the sturdy yeoman that it was.

Case in point—

English verbs, then and now, fall into two categories: strong verbs, and weak verbs. Like Indo-European languages generally, English is a synthetic language and retains bits and pieces of its older, conjugation-heavy heritage. Verbs still change to indicate tense. If they change by altering their vowels, they are strong verbs. If they change by adding a suffix, they are weak verbs. Sing and bite are strong verbs. Love and hate are weak verbs.

English weak verbs form their past tense by adding -ed. Back in the Middle English days, this was, in fact, pronounced as a separate syllable. As Middle English morphed into modern English, the tendency was to elide the vowel as much as possible, so that today, loved is pronounced with only one syllable; however, because pronouncing two successive dentals without an intervening vowel is difficult in English, hated remains disyllabic.

Naturally, there was a transition period. Even as late as Shakespeare, a weak verb’s -ed might or might not be pronounced as an extra syllable, with (for the Bard) the meter often the determining factor. In modern editions of Shakespeare, you’ll frequently see this indicated by putting a grave accent over the e if the syllable is to be pronounced, and by replacing the e with an apostrophe if it is not. (This is a useful convention which I will be adhering to below.) Thus, in The Merchant of Venice, Act iv scene 1, Portia tells Shylock, “The quality of mercy is not strain’d," whereas in King John iv.2, the Earl of Salisbury warns the titular monarch, “To gild refinรจd gold, to paint the lily,…is wasteful and ridiculous excess.” Note that in each case, you get a perfect line of iambic pentameter by pronouncing the “-ed” endings as explicitly marked.

(Whether or not a particular edition of Shakespeare adheres to this convention depends on a number of factors. In particular, Project Gutenberg tends not to use -รจd, because in its early days it was restricted to plain ASCII and had no reliable way to add the accent.)

In the 21st century, though, the rule is that the “-ed” is pronounced only when it is phonetically necessary to do so. But what would a rule be without exceptions? (A good rule, that’s what.)

First, a bit more grammar. Indo-European languages generally make clear distinctions between the various parts of speech. A verb, therefore, can’t just behave like an adjective; it has to be turned into one. A verb-turned-into-an-adjective is called a participle. English has two kinds forms for the participle: the present participle (as in “the flying nun”) and the past participle (“the frozen pond”). For weak verbs, the simple past verb conjugation and the past participle are both formed by adding -ed to the verb stem. (“I salted the meat myself.” “The salted meat is too salty.”)

The English language adores participles, because we use them in the compound forms of verbs, and we use compound forms a lot. With compound verbs, we use a helper verb (to be or to have) with a participle. We have the simple present (“I read Dante’s Divine Comedy every few years.”), the present progressive (“Right now I am reading Kirkpatrick’s translation.”), the present perfect (“I have read Ciardi’s translation several times.”), and the simple past (“I read three cantos yesterday.”), among others. One of our more spectacular constructions is the present perfect progressive (“It has been snowing all morning.”) Of these, only the simple present and simple past are not compound forms, and this is hardly an exhaustive list.

Now comes the kicker. Some past participles, a long time ago, basically became fixed expressions and turned into adjectives in their own right, and these adjectives preserved their pronunciation when the past participle proper changed its. That is, their -ed ending continued to be pronounced as a distinct syllable.

As an example, consider “learned.” If I am using it as a standard past participle, I pronounce it with one syllable: “I have learn’d my verb conjugations well.” As an actual adjective, however, it is now a separate word meaning “having much knowledge acquired by learning,” and as such is pronounced learnรจd. You would have to be an unlearnรจd man like Homer Simpson to pronounce the adjective “learn’d."

Other adjectives have followed a similar trajectory. Another common one is “aged” (“The president has aged decades since he took office.” “I saw an agรจd, agรจd man, /A-sitting on a gate.” Note, however, “middle-ag’d," which we never pronounce “middle-agรจd.”) I’ve seen “cursรจd” used as a distinct adjective on occasion. There are more.
None of these adjectives, however—none—has caused me as much grief as “blessed,” because it has to do with God-ish things, and so tends to occur a lot in religious texts. Like the Bible. Like the King James Bible. Like the one Bible translation of which I have converted everything except about the last third of the Old Testament into the Deseret Alphabet.

Precisely because of its association with the King James Bible, and particularly with the Beatitudes in Matthew 5, “blessed” is not only the past participle and simple past of “bless,” but an adjective in its own right meaning “having a sacred nature, associated with God.” As an adjective—and especially in conjunction with the archaic, exalted style we associate with the Authorised Version—there is a strong tendency to pronounce it as “blessรจd.” The various dictionaries I’ve consulted, by the way, are not consistent here. Some say the preferred pronunciation of the adjective is “blessรจd,” and some say that it’s “bless’d.” (Everybody allows both pronunciations.)

What makes this more difficult than other verbs is that it is a transitive verb that can take thing with volition as both subject and object, and commonly does. Thus, Matthew 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” The sentence makes sense whether you parse it as meaning “God blesses peacemakers” or “Peacemakers are holy.” (And if anybody starts talking about manufacturers of dairy products, I will have no idea to what they are referring.) If I say, “Aged indeed are my parents’ surviving siblings,” I’m very clearly not implying that some cheesemaker has come by and stuffed them in storage while they ripen; so it’s “agรจd.” “Anyone who is genuinely learned will understand that anthropogenic climate change is a real problem” does not imply that people have gone around learning other people; so it’s “learnรจd.”

For the New Testament, there is something that can help, and that is I know sufficient Greek to tell what the original sense is. In the case of Matthew 5:9, the original word is ฮผฮฑฮบฮฌฯฮนฮฟฮน which is an adjective and means “happy, fortunate.” It’s not a conjugated verb. On the other hand, in Matthew 14:19, we have “He…took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and break, and gave the loaves to his disciples.” Outside of the fact that the English sense is pretty clear, the Greek here is ฮตแฝฮปฯŒฮณฮทฯƒฮตฮฝ, the third person singular aorist active indicative of the verb ฮตแฝฮปฮฟฮณฮญฯ‰, which means, well, “to bless.” (Literally, it means “to speak well of.”)

That’s actually a workable solution to distinguish blessed-qua-verb and blessed-qua-adjective, and I adhered to it sporadically through the New Testament. Unfortunately, I don’t know Hebrew well enough to do the same in the Old Testament.

Now, the whole rigamarole is actually unnecessary, because there is a simple, sensible solution to the dilemma. As I say, all the dictionaries I’ve consulted say that “bless’d” is an acceptable pronunciation for blessed-qua-adjective and some of them give “bless’d” as the preferred pronunciation. So just use “bless’d” all the time.

Unfortunately, simple though I may be, I am not sensible. I just could not get myself to put “Bless’d are the merciful” into Jesus’ mouth. Instead, I’m doing what is probably the worst possible thing under the circumstances and simply going by euphony if semantics will not guide me. If the English sense is very clear, I go by that. Otherwise, if “blessรจd” sounds better than “bless’d,” I use “blessรจd.” If “bless’d” sounds better, use it instead. The result is a linguistic abomination and wrecks havoc with my principle of “one word-one spelling,” but at least it lets me sleep at night in blessรจd, blessรจd slumber.

When Chickens Work Together, Do They Coop-erate?

In my misspent youth, I occasionally would run across something odd. Occasionally, there would be a couple of odd dots on top of a vowel: zoรถlogy, Phaรซthon, Boรถtes, noรซl, Nausicaรค. I had no idea what was going on, and it never occurred to me to ask somebody. Either I knew how otherwise knew how to pronounce them, or, like Linus van Pelt reading Dostoyevski, I just “bleeped” over the others.

(I also ran across the mysterious symbol “รฆ”, which I found impossibly cool, in words like Cรฆsar and hรฆmoglobin. It was rather more obviously just an “a” and “e” smashed together for some unknown reason. Its capitalization, “ร†”, is also pretty cool.)

Eventually, I discovered the solution to the mystery. The double dots are called a diรฆresis—sorry, dieresis. In English and other languages, the dieresis serves the purpose of indicating that two vowels are to be pronounced separately in cases where one would naturally be inclined to pronounce them together.

The standard English alphabet, among its other quirks, has too few letters. In particular, we have more vowels than letters to represent them, so we resort to various tricks like the silent-e, vowel doubling, and so on. (And as usual, we end up with multiple ways of spelling the same sound.) So “goose” is [gus], “too” is [tu], “coop” is [kup], and “zoo” is [zu]. The temptation would be to pronounce “zoology,” therefore, as [zulษ™สคi] and not [zoสŠหˆษ‘lษ™สคi], and so we put the two dots to avoid confusion.

There is another diacritic which looks very similar to the dieresis: the umlaut. It originated as a small “e” written on top of a vowel (seriously) and eventually became a pair of dots, just like the dieresis. It’s used in German and other languages to indicate a modified vowel sound, so you have “Mutter” (mother) and “Mรผtter” (mothers), which are pronounced with a very different initial vowel. Since it originated as an “e,” it can still be written using an “e,” as in “Muetter.”

Although technically there is a very subtle difference in the visual appearance between a dieresis and an umlaut—or, more correctly, a font designed by a German for use in German text will have umlauts ever so slightly closer to their vowels than a font designed by a Frenchman for French text will have its diereses—for all practical intents and purposes, they’re identical. Even if a particular typeface does distinguish them (and most of them ones I’m familiar with don’t), you’d have to know what to look for to tell them apart. Character encoding standards have traditionally used the same character for both. Unicode does this: both dieresis and umlaut are U+0308 COMBINING DIAERESIS. There is a standard way to distinguish them if you really want to, but almost nobody does.

The use of dieresis was never prominent in the United States. Even in Britain it’s rather archaic. For one thing, there are a lot of places where it should strictly be used and isn’t. You know, like in “diรซresis” or “archaรฏc”, in case anybody was tempted to say [daษชrษ™sษชs] or [ษ‘rหˆkaษชk]. For another, there’s the whole problem of the impact of typewriters on English typography. Moreover, as a rule, a fluent reader of English is almost never going to be thrown by the lack of a dieresis. Worst comes to worst, you can use a hyphen (as in “co-operate”). As for names like Boรถtes, you can bleep over it, pronounce it like “booties”, or not go in for stargazing. They’re all foreign names, anyway, except Brontรซ, and why would one ever want to talk about someone named Brontรซ?

(On an unrelated note, expect a Deseret Alphabet version of Jane Eyre sometime in 2015.)

There is one other diacritic used in English-only text: the grave accent. This one I was able to figure out on my own, since I encountered it first when reading Shakespeare. Sonnet 78, for example, includes the couplet, “In others’ works thou dost but mend the style,/And arts with sweet graces gracรจd be.” A cursory examination of the scansion makes it clear that “gracรจd” is intended to be pronounced with two syllables for the sake of the meter, rather than the usual one.
So what does all this have to do with the Deseret Alphabet?

English has, among its many quirks, a number of diphthongs: two vowel sounds smoothly combined into one syllable. In fact, most long vowels in English are actually diphthongs. If, for example, you say “may” very slowly, you can tell that you’re saying [meษช] and not [me]. Even some of our short vowels can be pronounced as diphthongs. I know a lot of people who pronounce “and” as [รฆษชnd] instead of [รฆnd]. We generally don’t think of such vowels that way, of course. We generally reserve the word “diphthong” for sounds like “ow” and “ay”, where there can be no doubt.

This is reflected in the organization of the Deseret Alphabet, which begins with twelve vowels: six long and six short. Next are two diphthongs: “ow” and “ay”. Two glides come next, then sixteen consonants (a combination of stops and fricatives), then two liquids, and finally four nasals. That accounts for the thirty-eight letters of the standard Deseret Alphabet.

Some sounds are still missing, however. In addition to having no schwa, the Deseret Alphabet is missing one common diphthong: [ษ”ษช] as in “boy”. There is a forty-letter version of the Deseret Alphabet for which some evidence exists, one that was never part of the standard description or printed materials. It appends the letters OY and EW at the end. The former is a distinct phoneme in English; the latter could arguably be one, too.

If one restricts oneself to the standard thirty-eight letters, a problem occurs. There can be an ambiguity when something like [ษ”ษช] or [oษช] occurs in the middle of a word, because that could be either one syllable or two. I ran into this when trying to transcribe the word “prohibition”. I pronounce it something like [หŒproสŠษ™หˆbษชสƒษ™n] or [หŒproสŠษชหˆbษชสƒษ™n]. (The problem of reduced vowels in English is another blog entry or two.) Because of my spelling conventions, I would spell it 𐐹𐑉𐐬𐐮𐐺𐐮𐑇𐐲𐑌, but is that proy-bishun or pro-ibishun?

Now, there are sensible solutions to the problem. One would be to abandon my spelling rule and go with 𐐹𐑉𐐬𐐲𐐺𐐮𐑇𐐲𐑌. Another would be to abandon the standard Deseret Alphabet and go with 𐑎 for words like “𐐺𐑎” so that 𐐹𐑉𐐬𐐮𐐺𐐮𐑇𐐲𐑌 is unambiguous. Or we could just assume that a fluent English speakers would know that proy-bishun isn’t a word, just like we know that coop-erate isn’t a word.

Naturally, I want to be cool, not sensible. I use a dieresis and spell it 𐐹𐑉𐐬𐐮̈𐐺𐐮𐑇𐐲𐑌.

Now, there is a vaguely similar problem, one with a vaguely similar solution. There are three reasons why we double vowels when writing English. One is to spell a certain vowel sound in a frankly unobvious way, as in “goose.” Another is when we want to indicate a vowel stretched out unnaturally, as in, “I am your faaaaaaaather’s ghooooooost.” Finally, there are cases where you genuinely have two separate vowels, as in “zoology.”

For me, this came up with the word “medieval” (or “mediรฆval” or “mediรซval”). I pronounce it [หŒmidiหˆivษ™l]. (I believe that [หŒmษ›diหˆivษ™l] is more likely to be considered correct, but let’s ignore that for the moment.) Just to make absolutely sure that people don’t try to pronounce it as if they were a ghooooooost from the Middle Aaaaaages, it would be good to indicate the fact that there are four syllables there, not three. And so I opted for 𐑋𐐨𐐼𐐨𐐨̈𐑂𐐲𐑊.

Now, there are some nay-sayers who will say “nay,” and that I’m being rather silly. Nobody will seriously be confused by spellings like 𐐹𐑉𐐬𐐮𐐺𐐮𐑇𐐲𐑌 or 𐑋𐐨𐐼𐐨𐐨𐑂𐐲𐑊. I have to confess that they’re right, but I nonetheless have two points in response.

Firstly, I’m being silly enough to be churning out Deseret Alphabet content of any sort. A little extra silliness won’t hurt.

Secondly, diereses are cool.

Oh, and does anybody know where I can get a fez in my size?

More News on the Font Front

Google has been working on a new font family, called Noto, which aims to cover everything in Unicode 6.2. That, of course, includes Deseret, and Noto Sans Deseret is available for download for OS X and Windows.

I'm a regular reader of Slate and a devoted listener to the Slate Political Gabfest.  It was something of a delight to see today’s Vault blog devoted to the Deseret Alphabet. It was absolutely flabbergasting to see that the Deseret Alphabet edition of XKCD got a mention.

Seriously, I’m almost speechless.

The Deseret Alphabet Edition of XKCD Has Turned 50!

Fifty percent, that is.

With eight exceptions (because, seriously, I do have other things to do with my time), every XKCD comic from #658 onwards is now available in the Deseret Alphabet. The eight exceptions are:

(This is assuming that I’ve done my accounting correctly, always a dangerous assumption.)

Since the current comic is #1339,  that means that (1339 - 657) - 8, or 674 comics have been Deseretified, which is 50.3% of the total.

Which is all kind of sad, once you think about it.

Good News on the Mac Front

Well, Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks has been out now for nearly three months, so I suppose it’s a good time to point out that OS X has added the Deseret Alphabet to another font. The font Apple Symbols has had a full Deseret Alphabet repertoire since 2003 (!), and now the version of Baskerville shipped with OS X also covers the Deseret Alphabet.

The Baskerville glyphs are somewhat experimental and depart from the “standard” glyph shapes (the ones that people have been complaining about since the 1860’s), but not to any outrageous extent. The major features of the redesign are serifs, ascenders, and descenders; these are all distinct advantages for readability. Some lower-case letters have also acquired dots to replace small interior strokes.

The Roman faces are quite serviceable, but the italics still need some polish. On the whole, it’s sufficiently acceptable that the Deseret Alphabets Classics series has switched over to Baskerville from the modified Gentium used in the earlier volumes.
