Southgate, London

Southgate is a suburban area of north London, England in the London Borough of Enfield. It is located around 8 miles north of Charing Cross; the name is derived from being the south gate to Enfield Chase. Southgate was the South Gate of Enfield Chase, the King's hunting grounds; this is reflected in the street names Chase Chase Side. There is a blue plaque on a building on the site of the south gate. A little further to the south was another small medieval settlement called South Street which had grown up around a village green. Becoming separate from Edmonton in 1881, Southgate had a population in 1891 of just 10,970. By 1901 the figure had moved up to 14,993, by 1911 the figure had ballooned to 33,612, aided by the nearby railway station in Palmers Green. Southgate was predominantly developed in the 1930s: largish semi-detached houses were built on the hilly former estates following increased transport development. In 1933, the North Circular Road was completed through Edmonton and Southgate, in 1933, the London Underground Piccadilly line was extended from Arnos Grove, through Southgate tube station, on to Enfield West.

In 1894 an urban district of Middlesex, called Southgate, was created by the Local Government Act 1894. In 1933 a municipal borough called; the Municipal Borough of Southgate was abolished in 1965 by the London Government Act 1963, which created the London Borough of Enfield. This borough included the area, within the Municipal Borough of Enfield and the Municipal Borough of Edmonton. Within the area is the art deco Grade II* Southgate tube station designed by Charles Holden; the area has several large green parks such as Grovelands Park which covers ninety-two acres and contains a former boating lake of seven acres adjoining dense woods and bracken.

Marked nominative language

A marked nominative language is a language with an unusual morphosyntactic alignment similar to, considered a subtype of, a nominative–accusative alignment. In a prototypical nominative–accusative language with a grammatical case system, like Latin, the object of a verb is marked for accusative case, the subject of the verb may or may not be marked for nominative case; the nominative, whether or not marked morphologically, is used as the citation form of the noun. In a Marked nominative system, on the other hand. Marked nominative languages are rare, they are well-documented in only two regions of the world: in northeastern Africa, where they occur in many languages of the Cushitic and Berber branches of the Afroasiatic family, as well as in the Surmic and Nilotic languages of the Eastern Sudanic family. Other languages interpreted by some authors as having a marked nominative system include Igbo and Wappo, it is proposed that marked-nominative alignment can be reconstructed for the ancestor of the Afroasiatic languages, viz. Proto-Afroasiatic.

In Yuman and many of the Cushitic languages, the nominative is not always marked, for reasons which are not known. However, the Yuman language Havasupai is reported to have a purely syntactic case system, with a suffix -č marking all subjects of transitive and intransitive verbs but not of the copula; as in many Nilotic languages, Datooga case is marked by tone. The absolutive case has the unpredictable tone of the citation form of the noun, but the nominative is marked by a characteristic tone that obliterates this lexical tone; the tone is less. The nominative is used for subjects following the verb. Morphosyntactic alignment Dixon, Robert M. W.. Ergativity. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. Hinton, Leanne.

Charles-Eus├Ębe Dionne

Charles-Eusèbe Dionne known as Charles Eusebe or C. E. Dionne, was a French Canadian naturalist and taxidermist, he is considered the first professional French Canadian ornithologist. Dionne was a self-taught scientist and wrote several books on the natural history of Quebec, including the first field guide to the province's mammal fauna. Dionne was born in 1846 to a modest rural family in Saint-Denis-de-la-Bouteillerie, near Kamouraska, the eldest of six boys and five girls born to Eusèbe Dionne and Amélie Lavoie, his father was a cobbler and farmer but the couple attached considerable importance to education, Charles-Eusèbe displayed a thirst for knowledge from a young age, first noticed by his aunt Philomène. Philomène Dionne was the first to notice his affinity for natural history. Dionne captured and stuffed his first specimen at 14. After he had completed his elementary study, Philomène was the one who paid so he could benefit from private classes, where he came across a natural history book, an incident he would delight in recount in his years though he could not remember the title.

Dionne travelled to Quebec City in 1865 and, with the help of his cousin Zéphirin, who worked there, found work at the Séminaire de Québec. His predisposition was noticed and, having benefited from personal teaching sessions with Thomas-Étienne Hamel, he was promoted from cook to a position at Université Laval's faculty of law, he became friend with historian and librarian Charles-Honoré Laverdière, acquired from him scholarly techniques and instinct, all the while developing his knowledge and becoming an admirer of Léon Abel Provancher. He began to develop his natural history collections at that time, his first attempts were of poor quality. It is possible that he acquired the basis for the techniques that would make his fame from William Couper, a naturalist that resided in Quebec City during that period, his knowledge in the various fields of natural sciences grew thanks to the studies he did of his specimens, the volumes he accessed through the university's library. He followed classes at Laval and the Académie Commerciale of the Brothers of the Christian Schools.

Having acquired knowledge of Latin and English, he could access a further wealth of knowledge. In 1873, Dionne was promoted deputy librarian to assist Laverdière, who couldn't keep up with the work. Laverdière died soon after and Dionne mourned a fellow academic and friend. Dionne prowled the public markets for specimens, attracted for himself the nickname of "Dionne l'empailleur", he came to meet a fellow countryman, Guillaume-Wilfrid Pelletier, brother of his future wife Marie-Émélie, which he married on May 6, 1879. The couple settled in an apartment on the second flour of Guillaume-Wilfrid's grocery. Dionne would gain further fame by exposing his beautiful pieces in the front window of the store over the following decade. Pelletier, in return for the visibility, helped Dionne in his acquisitions, he died in July 1908. Dionne's major interests over the course of his career were ornithology and taxidermy, although he wrote little about entomology, his renowned skills and amiable predisposition made him a prime candidate to become assistant-curator to François-Xavier Bélanger at Laval's zoological museum.

He was more competent on the whole than Bélanger, though the had dedicated his life to the museum. In 1882, upon the death of the curator, Dionne was appointed in his place, he would help turn the collection into one of the finest in the province. That same year Dionne published his Les oiseaux du Canada and traveled in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence with J.-U. Gregory, of the Quebec City Marine Bureau, with the aim of helping build ichtyological collections, for which Gregory would thank him. Dionne would refer several times to this expedition in his book. By 1887, his personal entomological collections had grown to over 1,500 specimens. Dionne talented taxidermy was again noticed when he exposed nearly four hundred specimens at the 1887 provincial fair, where he collected two prizes; that collection, or most of it, would be acquired by Dominique-Napoléon Saint-Cyr in 1889 and form the basis of the zoological collections of the Musée de l'Instruction Publique. Dionne subsequently remained the main taxidermist for the museum under Saint-Cyr's successors, it was curator Victor-Alphonse Huard who would suggest his candidacy to the Royal Society.

In 1889, Dionne completed and published a reorganization of his first book into a Catalogue des oiseaux de la Province de Québec avec des notes sur leur distribution géographique. The perceptive and up-to-date, if short on overall information, ouvrage garnered good reviews from specialists such as Elliott Coues and Charles Foster Batchelder. Future president of the Union Jonathan Dwight noticed a recent and subtle publication of his being taken into account and visited Dionne in 1891 to check on it. Dionne turned out to be right, the two men struck up a friendship; this friendship and the one Dionne struck with Ruthven Deane in 1893 when he was delegated by Laval to Chicago for the opening of the Field Museum of Natur
