Yeah, I know that. I was just clarifying it as the name "Ryukyus" is less known than "Okinawa" and some might not know that the battle was part of the "Ryukyu Campaign". Plus, I am uncertain as to whether my Grandfather actually took part in the entire campaign, because I cant find any information in his records showing he was at Iwo Jima, which was a part of that campaign, but I know he was at Okinawa.

Hello.....I am interested in almost all ancient history from all over the world, as well as historic geology.
This includes astronomy (ancient & modern); astrology (ancient); mythology; legend; ancient history; archaeology; anthropology; and historic geology.
I am a retired archaeology technician (no PHD..just a Masters).
I do have a yahoo group site called Egypt and Beyond..(the 'beyond' lets the members discuss cultures, archaeological info., and ancient civilizations of other areas of the world).
I am always learning and hope to do so on this site...(I believe you never stop learning!)
Every subject on your site sounds interesting to me.

Hello! I was a history major in college. I have an abiding interest in world history, and in the social and cultural aspects of all regions and peoples. History is being made everyday, everywhere. History teaches us that what happens today will affect what happens tomorrow. To our detriment, world political leaders don't see it that way. I am not optimistic about the future of our planet. Hopefully, I have found a forum to exchange ideas with like-minded people, at the same time venting my frustrations at the present state of affairs.

Welcome to our forum Smile Hey, I was thinking about an episode of the Simpsons. Sideshow Bob was living in Italy with his Italian wife and son. Sideshow Bob's son was shout out to a butterfly "farfalla... farfalla vendetta!" in the end of that episode. Then my sister jumped out and said "don't we Lazs call butterflies as parpali" (anyone with slightest interest in etymology knows p<->f transitions are one of most common ones). Maybe a loan word from Genoese hah! They had numerous colonies in Black Sea and I live in Turkey's Rize province.

It might be imitation of that sound coming from wings of butterflies, "far far far" or "par par par"... It's called "parpalia" in Mingrelian (which is sister language of Laz language, two were splitted in 16th century). Anyway, best person to ask this question in this forum is probably Flipper.

Also vast majority of Turkish naval terminology comes from medieval Italian descent for obvibious reasons. Example: "İskele Alabanda!" (turn the ship to port side by 35 degree) or "fırtına" (fortuna in ita., storm in eng.) which again Turkish language loaned to Laz language as "furtona" (read it with italian pronunciation not with english). Because unlike Turkish, Laz language only possess five basic vowels similar to Italian, a,e,i,o,u if we exclude that long ê and ô's of Italian. Turkish has somewhere like 15 vowels but only 8 basic vowels exists in writen form. It's so because Mustafa Kemal-Atatürk wanted to exterminate all Persian and Arabic effects on Turkish language. Still Turkish script is basically pronounced as it written. So, an Italian can pronounce it with great success but an English will fail miserably LOL

I have spent the better part of my life looking at the history of the human journey from the hunter gatherers to our self created and complex technologically based societies of the twenty first century. And I still ask the same question which began my quest to understand our interconnected histories. What is history?  I believe Carr came close to answering that question when he wrote back in 1961 “To learn about the present in the light of the past means also to learn about the past in the light of the present. The function of history is to promote a profounder understanding of both past and present through the interrelation between them”.

In other words, the past illuminates the present and the present illuminates the past through the lens of human lived experience and by doing so it leads us to a fuller understanding of the human condition.  Each day I try to push my learning curve a little further on, but I fear I maybe running out of time before I can see the bigger pictureSmile. BigUzi

Hi,
 
Name's Salah, you'll find me on Historum and a couple other history forums.  This place looks pretty neat so I figured I'd join up.  I'm 23, male, American, originally from Baltimore, Maryland but now living in the Midwest.
 
I love history in general, but my foremost passions are ancient Rome and the 19th Century (particularly the American Civil War).  I also dabble in African-American history, musical history, Native American studies, the medieval Middle East, and a couple other odds and ends.

Hello all. My username is Steersman. Retired US Navy,residing in Florida.
My present Historical interest is the transition of our Navy. Someof the recent disturbing events ones which show moral issues and other uncalled for shipboard activities.I read each weekly edition of the Navytimes. I see a gross lack of adheering to long standing traditions and behavior of lower enlisted sailors.
Speaking of behavior. My wife just called me to evening chow.
More on this subject later.
 
Glad to be aboard,
Steersman
