Egyptian-Coptic conference, day 4 (last day)

The last day of the Egyptian-Coptic conference at the MPI went by quickly. I met ThoGo in the tram, who came back from the USA and Berlin, and wanted to hear the rest of the talks as well. The first talk was by Sebastian Richter (with his funny Saxon accent in English) about "Lexical Borrowings into Coptic", he statistically compared the amount and type of lexical borrowing from Greek and Arabic. I intended to skip the talk afterwards, but as I was sitting in the middle of a row of chairs with people around me, I couldn't flee... so I stayed for "Bipartite negation in Egyptian-Coptic and beyond", which was okay. After a short break, Bernard Comrie gave his talk on "Relative clauses in Middle Egyptian: a typology perspective", where he also compared the structures of relative clauses with that of Japanese, Warlpiri and Turkish. I skipped the last talk due to lack of interest in the topic.

After working for about 2 hours, I left to visit Tina and Achim. We ate noodles with pesto (yuck!) and watched 2 movies: "Vantage Point" (German: "8 Blickwinkel", 6 points) and "Stardust" (German: "Der Sternwanderer", 9 points), which was absolutely lovely and even funny and cute at times. "Aber, aber... du warst eine Maus! Du wolltest Käse!" :D :D :D

And I continued playing Monkey Island 2. :D

Die Imperativfrage

Jetzt eine Frage für alle Deutsch-Muttersprachler, auch die anonymen Mitleser!
Wie lautet in eurem Dialekt bzw. in eurer Umgangssprache der Imperativ (Befehlsform, also z.B. "Schreib (nicht/mal)!" usw.) von folgenden Verben:
wackeln, wandern, bügeln, sabbern, verdoppeln, erinnern

Dann sagt mir bitte noch, wie der Ort heißt, an dem ihr aufgewachsen seid. Also nicht nur die Region, sondern die Stadt, auch wenn sie klein ist.

Bitte mitmachen, ich brauch so viele Stimmen wie möglich! Wer's schonmal beantwortet hat, muss natürlich nicht nochmal.

Vielen Dank im Voraus!
