What Languages do you speak?
« on: June 17, 2014, 12:57:23 PM »
I love learning about language! It's my biggest passion, of course I like other things, but just learning about the theory, the grammar, the semantics and the cultural differences it's very interesting, though I'm much more interested in indigenous languages and the language of science.

So what language or languages do you all speak? I speak English and Spanish, I know some words in Nahuatl which is considered sometimes to be the Mexican language, though don't ask me to speak it. He he...

I speak Italian as primary language and English. I can read a bit of spanish since it's similar to Italian but I can't speak it. One day i want to learn Solresol ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solresol ), it will be fun to speak it, especially for me being a Pianist.

Only English. I tried learning Spanish in school, but had some trouble staying on top of it all.

I do have a big interest in other languages, and like to learn a few basic words here and there. What I find really interesting is constructed languages, Esperanto and Lojban. Esperanto is supposed to be really similar to lots of other European languages, which I would believe. Lojban is just plain weird though. It's supposed to be completely neutral and involve as little emotion (when speaking) as possible, plus the way it's structured is pretty similar to computer code.

I don't ever plan on trying to learn these languages, but I think they're interesting because of how unique they are.

English
a very tiny amount of Japanese because of my exposure on pso2
a very tiny amount of Russian
a very tiny amount of Spanish too because that is just the usual 2nd language where I live for some reason.
I am now interested in Lojban after reading what nebulavista said but I'd likely be to lazy xD.

It's definitely not worth learning the language (in a serious manner). I just learn different words for fun.

And if you didn't believe me when I said it was weird, here's a couple of examples:

.u'u = Repentance ("I feel sorry for you"). Pronounced as "OO-Hoo" (u = oo as an cartoon and ' adds an h sound)



I tried translating "Klonoa" but it was pretty confusing to figure out the alphabet. The closest I got was kloNO,ua. (which is probably wrong).

I only speak English right now, but I do plan on learning how to speak Japanese soon. I already downloaded a few writing charts for Hiragana and Kanji (just missing some charts for Katakana  :( ), and I found myself quite a few resources for learning the language through Tumblr. I just need to find a time to study this without being sidetracked by other things

Your English isn't that bad. I just find it impressive when people can learn a second language at all, I've never really been that good at it.

My main language is Turkish, I also tried to learn French, but failed.

No need to mention English, I think.
