So I'm a rebel then 'cause I speak spanish...


Mmm... The common way to speak spanish it's indeed a bit rebellious, but I use a more formal way with some basic slang, and my friends and family does so. It actually depends of the social background of the people, just like in other languages...

If you actually learned these languages, no generalizations would apply.
>>14 It's called Dutch, and the majority of speakers are not in the Netherlands.

16 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2008-09-28 23:57 ID:Heaven

It's called Nederlands in Nederlands (or Dutch, if you wish to be vulgar), and the majority of its speakers do indeed reside in the Netherlands. I am simply following the lead of >>1-san, who wrote language names as the (romanized if necessary) identifying name of speakers of the language. Also you are quite wrong about languages not possessing intrinsic qualities.

Ithkuil: Someone vomiting.

18 Name: Linguiste Anonyme : 2008-10-07 02:22 ID:chijkpkB


Ithkuil has so much different possible sounds that when someones vomits it may end up as a sentence, like "As you see, I disagree with Nietzsche's nihilist philosophy," or something like that :p

Mandarin Chinese : Sneeze.

Russian: everything is perfectly predictable, so long as you have a working knowledge of the history of the language since the dawn of time.

Dutch = English with a funny accent. Seriously.

Waar is het toilet? = Where is the bathroom?
dat is goed = that is good
dank u wel = thank you
dat is Chinees voor mij = that's Greek to me.

25 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2008-12-07 16:11 ID:HUdt5U1H

Dutch = German with a heavy English accent.
Norwegian = Funny sounding Swedish.
Swedish = Funny sounding Norwegian.
Danish = Most inarticulate language ever.
Hungarian = Might as well be Klingon
English = A patois if I've ever seen one.
Spanish = Keep it Simple. Like Esperanto, only people actually speak it.
Italian = Silly-sounding Spanish.
Romanian = Italian that's been bashed with a Slavic stick into sounding pretty macho for a Romance language.
Russian = Now that's some macho shit.
Polish = What the hell do you need all those extra sounds for? And those nasal vowels are totally gay.
German = Second only to Russian on the macho scale.

Finnish = Vowels everywhere.

Russian is only macho when spoken to really manly mafia guys. Women make it sound really soft.
