French is becoming a polysythetic language?!?!?!?

This article just blew my mind:

http://matnat.ronet.ru/articles/Arkadiev_TypSchool_Polysynthesis_Hand.pdf

It argues that spoken French has developed some characteristics of polysythetic languages like those found among Amerindian and Bantu languages such as noun incorporation into the verb and polypersonal agreement (marking the object as well as the subject on the verb).

The creepy thing is that I am having the English descendant I'm working on for my sci-fi universe evolve in the same way, and that was even long before I read this today!

Trayvon's murder was a modern-day lynching.

Just like in the lynchings of the Jim Crow days, an innocent black guy would be falsely accused of a violent act and them murdered to terrorize blacks to "keep them in their place".

This video made me cry!

Treating a sapient AI who is in all respects a PERSON as a commodity to be sold!

This guy's mix of circular reasoning and getting facts wrong is hilarious.

Edit: The idea itself isn't THAT farfetched, it's his BS "data" and his idiotic conclusions that are hilariously stupid.

GOP mindset: Women having sex is bad, Creepy Old Men having sex...

...is good. That pretty much sums up the beliefs of these idiots. The pill is bad, Viagra is good. Never mind that the majority of men with impotence still get "morning wood", indicating that the problem is not in between their legs...

I hear Breitbart's syphilis finally did him in!

They haven't denied it!!!
