Dear Ohlbe,

» […] I'm not sure Helmut encourages the use of languages other than English on the forum).

[image]I neither encourage English nor discourage any other language. However, any language other than English greatly reduces the chance to get answers.
In short:

In the Middles Ages the lingua franca of science was Latin.
Nowadays the language of science is bad English.

Less than 7% of users of the forum are native English speakers. The rest of us do our best.

Waunst wüst, kaunst mit mia a auf weanarisch plauschen.
Αν θέλετε μπορείτε να συνομιλήσετε μαζί μου στα άθλια ελληνικά. :-D

The rise of biometry in this 20th century,
like that of geometry in the 3rd century before Christ,
seems to mark out one of the great ages or critical periods
in the advance of the human understanding.    R.A. Fisher
