Nord Tyskeren Praksis [N.Germanic Practice Thread]

Postby LittleKey » Mon Sep 08, 2008 2:10 pm UTC

There's been suggestions running around, so here we go. I'm sorry I can't speak much Norwegian yet, but I'll be posting more and more as I learn. So here you can speak anything Norsk, Svensk, and beyond. (And sorry if the title, Nord Tyskeren Praksis, isn't correct. I had to translate it :? ).

And... go!

Is this for ALL N. Germanics, or just the big three?

In Swedish, the title would best be translated as "Övning på nordgermanska språk" (literally "practice on North Germanic languages"), or if you want calque the English way of saying it, "Nordgermanskövning" (but that sounds a bit weird).

ZLVT, I don't see why they can't all get along; so yeah, you can use any N. Germanic language. Honestly I don't know exactly what that consists of, I don't know how many N. Germanic languages there are. But sure, feel free to use languages other than the big three.

Well, N/D/S all understand each other. Icelandic, Faroese, etc ... don't

That could be kind of confusing then, cause it'd be nice to have everything be mutually intelligible, but i wouldn't want to leave out the others, like Icelandic and Faroese. Let's play it by ear, shall we? People can speak in N/D/S, Icelandic, whatever; and if things get too confusing we could make this be solely N/D/S, and make a different thread for the others. Like I said, I don't see why they can't all be friends :P .

Jeg liker nord tyskeren språkker, og jeg viller snakke norsk, but I can't, so I need to rely on others to get this linguistical ball a rollin'.

Lägg märke till att "tyska" enbart betyder "German" och inte "Germanic", vilket heter "germansk(a språk)".

Jag tycker nog det är upp till dig att välja ett ämne att diskutera i alla fall!

Jeg ville bare lige sige hej, og gøre opmærksom på at der allerede findes tråde til både dansk, svensk, norsk og tysk (tror jeg, måske ikke alle fire).

Men det er vel stadig en udemærket idé at lave en tråd, hvor man kan diskutere alle fire sprog, på alle fire sprog.

Eller diskutere noget andet, det er vel ligemeget.

Men tyska är ju faktiskt inte nordgermanskt, så det får man väl anta inte ingår här.

Har vi nån norrman här också kanske? :)

Nå okay, jeg troede faktisk at tysk indgik i nordgermansk.
Det må jeg lige læse lidt på, tak for det! :D

Tysk er vestgermansk, sammen med nederlandsk, frisisk, og ... engelsk.
Og joda, minst én nordmann.

Er her nakar, sum dugur føroyskt? Eg rokni ikki sjálvur við tí, men mann kann alltíð hopa.
Um her er nakar, ið er við at læra, so vil eg gjarna hjálpa.
Eg haldi at tað er ein heilt góð idé, við hesum tránum. Føroyskt er í øllum førum ikki nóg vanligt, at ein heilur tráður er neyðugur.

Does anyone here speak Faroese? I don't count on it myself, but one can always hope.
If anyone here is learning, I'll be happy to help.
I think this thread is a great idé. In any case, Faroese isn't so common, that it warrants a whole thread.

I feel oddly compelled to try translating that into norwegian. The first variant is broken but parseable, intended to look as close as possible; the second is intended to be reasonably normal norwegian.

Er her nakar, sum dugur føroyskt? Eg rokni ikki sjálvur við tí, men mann kann alltíð hopa.
Er her noen, som duger (til) færøysk? Jeg regner ikke selv med det, men man kan alltid håpe.
Er det noen her som snakker færøysk? Jeg regner ikke med det, men man kan alltid håpe.

Um her er nakar, ið er við at læra, so vil eg gjarna hjálpa.
Om her er noen, som er ved å lære, så vil jeg gjerne hjelpe.
Hvis det er noen her som holder på å lære det, vil jeg gjerne hjelpe.

Eg haldi at tað er ein heilt góð idé, við hesum tránum.
(?) Jeg holder at det er en helt god idé med denne tråden.
(?) Jeg synes denne tråden er en veldig god idé.

Føroyskt er í øllum førum ikki nóg vanligt, at ein heilur tráður er neyðugur.
Færøysk er i alle fall ikke nok vanlig, (til) at en hel tråd er nødvendig.
Færøysk er uansett ikke vanlig nok til at det er nødvendig med en hel tråd.


I don't speak faroese, but it's still close enough that I can make passable guesses. ;)

It's interesting though, how close they really are. They're almost the same, word by word.

I think they would have been even more similar if djn had used Nynorsk -- for example, I think that "I" in Nynorsk is "Eg" instead of "Jeg", identical to the Faroese.
