So it turns out you can be dyslexic in one language but not another, depending on the kind of linguistic processing problem you have. For example, if you have trouble with phonemes, if can be hard to learn alphabetic writing systems like English, but easier to learn logographic writing systems like Chinese. China has dyslexic people obvs, but they seem to have different stuff going on in their brain than English dyslexic people. Huh.
YEAH YEAH YEAH THIS IS SUPER COOL
It also has to do with how deep or shallow a language’s writing system is—a “shallow orthography” is an alphabetic system where one letter tends to represent basically one sound (like Spanish or Italian or Finnish), or the sound-letter mappings are generally regular. But a “deep (or opaque) orthography” is an alphabetic system where each letter can have multiple sounds associated with it, like English or French.
So the incidence of one kind of dyslexia (AGH CAN’T REMEMBER THE TYPE) is really, really low in places like Italy because you don’t have to keep track of weird sound-letter pairings (like “yacht” or “tough” or “knight”).

I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left
and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off
Also, the dude behind the counter just nonchalantly making shawarma for the goddamn Avengers like they come in every day.
#meanwhile loki is outside tied to the bike rack with mjolnir on his chest
I’ve reblogged this about five times already and I dont plan on stopping
Clint with his leg up on Natasha’s chair….ugh I want to know more about their past and their interactions.

man every time i rewatch captain america i’m like. so inspired by dr. erskine. what a dude. bleeding out in steve rogers’ arms and his final act before dying is to go in for a last second boob touch. like, the dude saw his window of opportunity closing and he snatched it. not gonna see pecs like those in a shirt that tight in the afterlife. gotta make every minute on earth count.
