By clicking "I am 18" button you are confirming that you are over 18 and will not misuse this thread in any way.



DPs Exposed!

Do you have a lurid fascination with the naughty bits of digital pianos? Well then this thread is for you! It's a collection of links to posts, both at PW and other sites, that have photos of DPs (including, but not limited to: other electronic keyboards, sound modules, and expansion boards) in various states of undress.

Being an EE, I particularly enjoy snaps of the main "brains" board, where slow RAM, tiny ROM, and calculator class processors rule our world. My amateur audio self appreciates views of anemic 5W amplifiers driving $2 "full range" speakers mounted in pre Thiele & Small "enclosures". And my lay mechanical side is fascinated to see keyboard actions with their acres of brittle plastic, mounds of milky grease, and monstrous heaving slabs of aluminized chipboard for bases.

If you run across pictures at Piano World - or elsewhere on the web - please pipe up below in this thread and I'll do my best to keep the main header list here current.

It is, I'm afraid. Although in Australia it's spelt "alphabetised".

According to these guys the first known use was in 1691:

I've heard it since grade school so it doesn't sound strange at all to me. What about it rankles those on the other side of the pond?

Well, not sure really. But it sounds (to me) like the kind of Americanism that is radically changing the language. Like stressing the wrong syllable, which Americans typically do. Like HarASS, which correctly is HARass. And because we (Brits) are forever absorbing American culture, it is becoming the norm here. I would place things in alphabetical order, you alphabetize them. Which I know is more efficient in terms of using fewer words but it is ugly English to my eyes. I (or my house) would be burgled, you would be "burglarized", which is absurd to me. Placing "ize" on the end of a word doesn't make a new word in my book.

Interestingly (to me anyway), I can't really reconcile my distaste of that kind of Americanism with my real admiration of Americans and American things. It is fashionable over here (well, everywhere it seems) to knock America and Americans but I'm a big fan personally (in a completely non-political sense). I'm completely fascinated with the country, its geography and people. But I don't like alphabetize!

Anyway, a little voice in my head is telling me I've strayed a little off topic!

Many young people in Bulgaria are using English words when there are corresponding Bulgarian words. They even use the English words with Bulgarian endings and conjugations smile One may consider that case even worse because it imposes an entirely different language over our own rather than mixing varieties of same of one and same language. Anyway, I would like to use the off topic started by EssBrace to apologize to all the native English speakers (and other who are fluent in English) for my bad English in my posts. Fortunately the music is universal language where we understand each other perfectly despite the different "accents" wink

Then the German language must totally apoplecticize you! smile

Yes, and I'm 100% sure his Bulgarian is better than mine (Google Translate).

That was great thumb To be honest, Google Translate (and similar services) are poor at translating from and to Bulgarian and I had to re-translate back to English your kind wish in order to double-check what you really said, but fortunately they are getting better with time. We're a small nation, so that's not a top priority for Google I guess grin

P.S. I remember a funny story. I worked in Dublin, Ireland for 4 months around 2005. Somebody told me in advance that Irish accent is different. A guy had to take me from the airport and he was speaking awfully bad English. He even told me he was amazed that my English was so good. That was just ridiculous because I knew it was not true and I said to myself: Wow, these Irishmen really speak English worse than me! Well, it turned out he was French grin Anyway, Irish accent is strange indeed, I had real difficulties understanding people there. They also laughed at me many times for my poor English. And my English hasn't improved much since then, so don't tell me it's good wink

Are you sure? So why are we Aussies and Poms always complaining about the "Americanisation" of our language? wink You definitely hear "Americanise" more than, "the placing of American words, idioms or influences in our language". grin But I guess Americanise would be the one exception to the no-ise rule because you are saying it is so American! Confused yet?! crazy

Well, maybe what I'm saying is that "ize" words ("ise" words in proper English) are fine if they have been a staple of the language. Generalise, categorise etc...all fine. But alphabetize? Do me a favour!

Aussies are as bad - I was proof-reading something for an Australian friend the other day and he used the word thereunder...what the heck does that mean I asked - I thought it was a typo. The word does exist in Australian dictionaries apparently. Needlessly of course!

Actually "thereunder" is a very old and established construction in British English indicating position under the thing already specified. It is part of a host of "there" words which can take on a preposition as a suffix, therein, thereof, thereunder, thereat, thereover etc. As long as it was used correctly, there's no problem with the word. Sorry mate!

I'm curious, is there a term for British pseudo-Americanisms coined purely for comedic purposes?

Languages that aren't in constant flux are basically dead. People play all kinds of games with them because spoken language is largely an instinct for us - put two infants on a desert isle and if they survive they'll come up with something with internal consistency (i.e. follows grammatical rules).

It wasn't. Thereunder is only correct or sensible frankly in the context of legal documents or technical instructions - the context in which it was used was totally odd. When I questioned his use of it he quoted some Australian dictionary entry justifying it.

There's a concept - an Australian dictionary!...cobber, dag, rack (as in rack off), sheila and countless other inelegant contributions to the language no doubt grin
