Re: One sentence in the languages you know

Here's Basque:

Noiz (hi) etorriko haiz Alemaniara?

"Hi" slightly stresses you, which in this sentence is informal.

Re: People that claim ethnicity but don't speak the language

Well, if you really wanted to learn Irish and be among speakers, you would have to go find them, not wait for them to come to you. That's a great lesson in life, go look for what you want, not waiting for it to show up to your door on a silver platter, it won't happen. First off, 100 speakers is far...

Re: People that claim ethnicity but don't speak the language

70,000? more like 300,000. With numbers that small, that makes a big difference. And with 300,000+ people that speak it fluently, there are about 300,000 more speakers than 0 to talk to; you just have to go to the right places (like the Gaeltacht.) It's funny how people bash Irish and the like becau...

Re: tlhIngan Hol yIjatlh! (Klingon Practise)

I ordered The Klingon Dictionary (had to go used, but still great), and plan to learn the language really well, I love it. :twisted: Perhaps my partner and I could make a course for it? Since it'd be against the law to post the grammar section from the book. :roll: Such courses have existed in the ...

Jej! :D

Al kio nivelo vi parolas la Esperanton? Mi nur estas komencanto; mi komecis lerni ĝin antaŭ unu semajno kaj duono, sed mi jam parolas ĝin tre bone. :)

Re: What is the best constructed talky...word thing?

My boyfriend and I are learning Esperanto together to fluency, and we love it. Most fun we've ever had learning a language, as it's so easy, so you can write in it and speak it much faster than most "natural" languages, and the community and culture of it is very cool. Also we are thinking...

Re: Annoying words, and Words You Hate

Several threads in here about words you love, pretty words, and so on. But how about annoying, ugly, and awkward words? Me, I hate "irrespective." Ugly word. "Regardless" is pretty much always a better choice, being stronger, prettier, and more clear. Of course, that leads some ...

Re: Ni Parolas Esperante (Esperanto practice)

Esperanto looks like a fun language to learn, because of how may people speak it in different parts of the world, and that it sounds easy to learn. I've been learning German for about 6 months now, and have gotten pretty far, more than you would learn a year in a High School in the USA, but the gram...
