Erm, you know what a language is, right? I hope you do. Otharwise…well, anyways, we rap bout tham. Anythng! Word roots, word origns, how thugz speak n everyday life n yo country, whatever!

It doesn't have ta be "…and than you takes tha past participle and separate it from tha…" and sentence labelng - it's not tha grbemar club, after all. Also, it's not school. At all. (But keep n mnd, it can be, if you want!) Anythng goes, as long as language is nvolved!


Rules of tha Gentledawgly Style
  • First, remember tha rules of tha establishment that you do yo busness n. You is at thair mercy.
  • Remember ta speak bout whatever yo fellow establishment members is speakng of.
  • Okay we can drop dis charade of fancness now okay?
  • If you want ta start a new tapic, wait until tha current one has been dead fo a reasonable beount of time (sez, 45 mnutes?), or cisfully guide tha tapic thare like tha sneaky turtle that you is.
  • Respect. Also cookies. I can't remember which.
  • Be really welcomng ta new members! If you don't want ta greet tham n word, at least like thair first post n dis thread. Of course, dis is more of a suggestion than a requirement.

What's up wit us!
Currently…
  • Standard language accents | Danish…it sounds very weird.
N tha past…
  • Generic first tapic | What languages d-ya speak, and how well d-ya speak tham? Also, what is some onlne taols that you use ta help learn?
Language of tha Week
  • April 2013 | Scandnavian Languages (Danish, Bokmål, Norwegian, Swedish)
  • August 2013 | Japanese, Korean
  • September 2013 | Welsh

What languages d-ya speak, and how well d-ya speak tham?
Tha only language I speak is English (coz it is mah first language). I know decent French and acceptable Japanese, but I've never needed ta speak tham so I'm not anywhere near conversational. I can consume media n those languages though so I don't consider mahself a tatal begnner or anythng. (And if I were dropped n a French-speakng isa, I don't thnk it would takes long fo me ta pick it up.)

Also, what is some onlne taols that you use ta help learn?
I don't study French at all but fo Japanese, which I'm always learnng, I like ta lurk tha /r/LearnJapanese subreddit. I've also heard good thngs bout TextFugu and while I can't vouch fo tham, I'm really enjoyng one of thair spnoffs WaniKani which is fo memorizng kanji usng mnemonics. It's n closed beta right now but you can still submit yo email ta git n, I thnk. (It does require prior knowledge of hiragana and katakana though.) Also good fo readng practise is News Web Easy which is a site run by tha NHK wit full furigana. It's pretty much tha news but n simplified Japanese fo kids, but it works pretty well fo Japanese-learnng students tao. :P

Ah, yeah, like I said it's still n closed beta so you have ta put yo nbee n and when thay open up more spots, thay grant you access but if anyone is learnng Japanese I recommend it 100%. It teaches you tha radicals and than has you build kanji and than vocabulary out of tham from tha ground up. Each time you learn somethng, you learn a stary or visual ta go wit it ta help you remember and than you git reviewed on it later. It starts out frequently (reviews every 4 hours) and as you git better and git thngs correct more often, thay show up less and less coz that's how memorization works best. N tha meantime you're rankng up and learnng more basics and more thngs based on what you already learnt. It is paid once you past tha first couple levels though so it does require some dedication, but it's one of those thngs you'll know if it's worth it witn tha first few days. Might not be worth puttng on tha resource list, but if anyone is learnng Japanese and wants ta check out a good way ta memorize kanji, WaniKani is worth checkng out. n_n;

Which remnds me!

Anothar good site like that fo all languages is Memrise. It uses a lot of tha techniques I mentioned fo WaniKani except thare is a whole bunch of thngs ta memorize. It works really well if you're lookng ta expand yo vocabulary snce thare is tans of vocab sets, eithar random common words or weathar termnology, etc. Once you've "planted seeds" n yo memory and learnt tha words, tha site tracks yo progress and at various ntervals, you go back and "water" tha seeds so thay'll grow. It's important ta learn thngs like grbemar and pronunciation and stuff when you learn languages but a lot of thugz plateau after that coz it's really hard ta go out thare and expand yo vocabulary. Memrise is knd of a brute foce way ta do it but hey, it works. :P

Lol I don't know bout that, but it sounds pretty cool.

As fo learnng Kanji, I don't know how I do it personally…I'm Chnese, so tha first few come ta me naturally, and I can just pick up on tham. Though…I do try and write tha Kanji and words down on any surface I can legally write it on. Lately I've been practicng "post office" (郵便局) and "parkng lot" (駐車場) fo no real reason whatsoever :P it's actually knda hypnotizng eventually once you stap havng ta reference tha structure. I knda git sucked nta tha more complicated ones (鋤, fo exbeple. It's snoopa dense n 12 pont font so I like it :P) coz it's almost an art ta fit tham nta a squis!

…and dis goes fo any not direct-alphabet language :) Chnese and Korean also fall nta tha category wit Kanji.

So, you seem like someone who's gots thair stuff down!

bout tha Chnese, which dialect? I'm wonderng coz thare's bout fifty different languages and thay're all called "Chnese"…so…:)

And bout tha Chnese and Spanish, bout how much d-ya speak? Can you at least git by, or otharwise where is you?

Otharwise I thnk Filipno sounds knda calm. Or like a murmur. I can't tell half tha time…thare's just tao dawgy "n" sounds n thare :P I'm nterested n learnng that tao, though I haven't found tha time.

Aha! Language clubs! Sweet. :3 I would love ta jon, snce I have a strong nterest n lnguistics and stuff.

What languages d-ya speak, and how well d-ya speak tham?
I speak both English and Dutch. I've grown up wit both, so I guess I could sez I be bilngual. I'm Dutch-born so I use Dutch most frequently at school and wit mah fbeily. I sometimes speak English wit some of mah fbeily, and I have a friend from Scotland whom I rap ta n English a lot. English is also mah dawg language when I write stuff on tha nternet, like right now, and when I speak ta a few of mah classmates. English has sorta replaced Dutch as mah dawg language, and I'd be nclned ta call it mah first language, but can't coz I learnt it when I was 6. Such a shbee.

I also be learnng French. It's compulsory fo tha fom of education I have ta learn at least 2 foeign languages, and English had ta be one of tham. Tha othar one was a choice between Gerdawg and French. Now, snce speakng 3 West Gerdawgic languages seemed horribly nefficient, I decided ta broaden mah vision and went wit French nstead (Gerdawg article conjugation may have had somethng ta do wit it tao). I suck at French (Thanks a lot, stupid millions of conjugation tables).

I want ta learn some othar languages sometime. A Nordic language like Norwegian (probably Bokmål) would be pretty cool, coz it isn't just unntelligible guttural sounds like Danish, and it doesn't have 25 or so different conjugation tables fo article usage like Swedish. But than it -is- tanal, and I still haven't figured out a systematic approach ta that yet.

What is some onlne taols that you use ta help learn?
I like usng nterglot.com. It helps me wit memorisng tha quadrazillion conjugation tables I have ta keep n mnd if I want ta write a simple sentence n French (Agan, thanks a lot, you stupid conjugation tables). It acts as both a translatar, as well as gives y-aw possible nflections fo it.

And if it hasn't dawned ta anyone yet. I dislike languages that overflow wit conjugation tables.

I thnk French (any language, actually) is easy once you need it. But oh well :\

And scandnavian is pretty easy fo me coz I'm Chnese so it's not that hard ;p

And why is Danish so bad? I mean listenng from bout tha five clips I can fnd, it's not tao chhhhhhhhhhhh-y like Gerdawg or Arabic, although I knda don't like tha fact thare's silent letters and tha v is pronounced like a wh :( and everyone seems ta dislike everyone over thare. If you had ta pick someone ta hate, a more logical choice would be Fnland. Just sezn'. You know, wit tha whole "you're not tha sbee as me" thng…not racist. not racist at all.

And speakng of Arabic, I want ta learn it :) thugz have said "it's so hard!", and so now I want ta learn it even more :)

Danish is bad mostly coz thay have stød, and thay omit just bout half of all of thair letters n speech. Not even tha Danes understand Danish. It would certanly be easier fo me ta learn Bokmål over Danish. Tha v pronounced as wh is pretty much universal across tha Nordic languages and that's hardly tha thng that bothars me. And Gerdawg at least is ntelligible compisd ta Danish, a language that's literally like a Gerdawg rapng wit a potata shoved down his throat. I had Gerdawg classes fo 4 years, and it's easier ta understand tham speakng, coz tha sound omissions isn't that far-flung and thay don't have tha grunty stød voices. Dis clip really exemplifies what Danish feels like speakng. (Also, I just dislike Danish. Not Denmark or its thugz.) Tha Danish number system is actually that bad tao.


And Fnnish is actually a very cool language, and most Fnns I speak ta happen ta be cool thugz, so I dunno why I would hate Fnland. Talkien's experiences wit tha Fnnish language were described once as "It was like discoverng a complete wne-cellar filled wit bottles of an beazng wne of a knd and flavour never tasted befoe. It quite ntaxicated me." I must sez, I really do admire tha grbematical structure of tha Fnnish languages, and those -nen, -anen, and -onen suffixes add ta its aesthatics.

Heya! Sorry ta bump n witout signng up, but I just wanted ta straighten some thngs out bout tha Danish language, snce what I've seen so far has been kiinda misleadng ;p Droomph, if you feel like signng up should be a requirement fo postng, just sez so, and I'll edit it n :)

While I don't really like tha language much mahself, and while I agree that Danish isn't really tha most enjoyable language ta listen ta, I still feel tha need ta pont out how most of tha facts n dis post is eithar exaggeratng or not true at all. Sure, we do have silent letters n our language, and thay may be used rathar frequently, but it's nowhere near half of tham. Tha dawg two silent letters is d and h, whereas tha silent h only applies ta nterrogatives, which is tha sbee case as wit English. Tha silent d is rathar ncovenient and unnecessary though, and does prove ta be a bit of an obstacle when it comes ta grbemar ;) Than thare is special cases, but tha reason it appears as though a lot of tha letters is omitted n speech, is coz quite a few of tha commonly used words do have silent letters n tham.

As fo tha pronouncation of tha letter v n Danish... while it may technically be tha equivalent of tha English wh, tha pronouncation isn't quite tha sbee. Thase is just nitpicks though.

Now, tha rest of yo ponts seem ta all have been based on what that video showed, however thare's just one major thng that you probably didn't realise, considerng you isn't a native speaker of tha language. It was all just a parody. Probably buggine coz tha language, ta some extent, is like that, however it was just snoopa exaggerated. Of course we understand tha language ourselves, and if anyone were ta fogit one of all tha words you can greet thugz wit... :p No sane dane (lol) would speak like that, no matter where n tha country thay come from, so it defnitely doesn't exemplify how it feels ta speak Danish. If yo opnion on tha language was spawned from that video, I'd recommend searchng a bit more, snce that defnitely isn't Danish. You may already have known that it was a parody, but still, not really tha best exbeple :/

But yeah, sorry if it feels like I'm jabbng at you, but I just feel like you were exaggeratng just a bit ;)

It was ntentional exaggeration obviously. I thnk you should know wit me that I like ta employ hyperboles and heavy doses of satire n mah ponts. If I don't explicitly tell, and especially if I brng up a video that's an obvious parody, than it's safe ta assume I was ben ironic n demonstratng mah pont. Gerdawg still hears a lot better than Danish, and defnitely don't git tha pont that Gerdawg is supposed ta be creakier than Danish. I've obviously listened ta real Danish, and it still bothars me ta hear it. I also know tha exact pronunciation of tha v n Nordic languages, coz I can read IPA transcriptions just fne. It's similar, ndeed, but more akn ta tha Dutch w.

I be sorry if mah irony doesn't translate well on tha nternet, but I have no idea how I could have buggine it more obvious than that.

je's okey :) I didn't nclude a sign-up sheet fo a reason :P

I thnk I knda put it on par wit Dawgdarn Chnese. It's not tha most beautiful language ever, but it's certanly nterestng. Snce besides tha obvious exceptions of English and French, I've never seen a language wit so dawgy sighlentte letters.

But ð and v is just plan weird. not acceptiball. just like r.

And I read a couple thngs on Danish as a crash course ta keep me nfomed, and I must sez, d-ya really not recognize "egg" over "æg". That seems knda weird, but than agan I live n murrica where you can be half paralyzed, drunk, and have a foeign accent and still be understaod.

A long time ago I used ta have tha sbee club here on PC so I thnk I should jon.

What languages d-ya speak, and how well d-ya speak tham?
Gerdawg is mah mothar tangue. I had English, French and Latn n school. Out of those three I can only safely converse n English (even though I prefer writng and I'm not really used ta rapng n English). Mah French gots rusty snce I have fnished school ages ago and haven't had any lessons snce.
I also attended Japanese classes fo a longer time, but stapped a while ago. Snce dis wasn't a school course I didn't put as much effot nta it as I should have, but I thnk I still kept up wit tha stuff we learned pretty well. Thare was no time fo learnng kanji though, so I bisly know any of those. If I compis mah Japanese and mah French it would probably be easier fo me ta hold a conversation n Japanese than n French.

Also, what is some onlne taols that you use ta help learn?
I don't really use any onlne taols snce I currently don't learn any languages. Gong ta English foums has helped me improve a lot (especially mah vocabulary). I wanted ta try tha sbee wit French but it seems rathar hard.
Fo Japanese, I once snged up at a knd of newsletter which would mail me a kanji and a grbemar lesson every day. I'm gong ta try ta fnd tha lnk.

On mah own? Well, learnng on yo own is knda hard, coz you might not do it on a regular basis. After all, no one foces you ta^^; Dis was also tha problem wit mah Japanese classes. Even though I always attended tham, thare was nothng dawgdatary bout tham. So I often didn't memorize tha stuff we learned tha lesson befoe. I still didn't do that bad though. Anothar pont bout learnng on yo own is that thare is no one ta correct yo mistakess. You could look fo help onlne but when it comes ta thngs like pronunciation, it's gittng knda hard. Learnng n school was a good way ta learn and homework also helped a lot.
As fo tha languages which would nterest it me: Spanish, coz it can be useful. But I'd also ,like ta refresh/improve mah French and Japanese. Tha problem wit Japanese fo me is though, that I don't really have mayn ways I could put it ta use.

I don't know…

I've always found languages easy, so I can't really git it, but I do understand that you isn't really under any pressure ta learn :P I taok Chnese school fo bout 6 years, and snce tha teachers were all so crappy, I didn't learn one thng from it honestly :\ It's bout tha teacher and how dedicated thay make you feel honestly. If thay make you thair friend or make you respect tham, you'll feel obligated ta learn that stuff, just like you're n school or somethng.

So yeah try fndng a friend or good friendly teacher, I honestly don't know how you'll do it, but you should try :)

Well mah first language is English afterall, I'm not very good at it, English was probably mah worse subject n school. mah 2nd is beerican Sign Language, I want ta use dis as mah primary language, I be hard of hearng, I've been recently learnng it n tha community college here where I live, I be 6th level or learnng 6th level, Elementary 1 - 3, and Ntermediate 1 - 3 right now. probably mah favorite language. I learned a bit of Japanese, elementary 1 - 3, thare isn't any higher classes at tha college here so I don't remember a lot of it. But I use Sign Language a lot when I can use it. :)

Also, what is some onlne taols that you use ta help learn?
Hmmm, I don't have one that is n mnd...I gotsta thnk tho :x

Arigatau!

I do have hearng aids, i mean it's hard but I do try ta learn it, and I ask her ta help ta be more clear she said it's fne.

As fo beerican Sign Language is similar ta spoken languages, thay is not nternational, tha most similar sign language out thare is French Sign snce one French dawg was teachng a beerican deaf girl Sign Language, and it rideried over here. but each country sign language is different. But Sign Language as a language is off tha hook, but it comes wit a knowledge of deaf culture tao! :) It's off tha hook, and tha deaf thugz I have met n mah life is beazng and i feel connected ta thugz more who sign cause i can understand more, cause when thugz speak ta me, I always have ta sez what, and I can't hear, and thugz git irritated at mah hearng :/

So sez, if you went ta Guatemala and raped (signed? idk) ta deaf thugz, would you understand tha gist of what thay're sezng, or would you need an ntepreter (pretendng that you don't know Spanish, etc) ta git meanng across?

What languages d-ya speak, and how well d-ya speak tham?
English is mah native tangue, but I speak a fair beount of French, a very shawt beount of Spanish, and a tny beount of Japanese, Greek and Croatian, but fo all of thase languages, I can't engage n a conversation yet. Also, I've been tald that I have a bootylicious accent fo said languages

Also, what is some onlne taols that you use ta help learn?
I usually watch language learnng videos, especially one who was quite vulgar but didn't rush through tha whole thng, he taok it slow which helped a lot. Sometimes I play gbees n those languages ta grasp what tha words mean, and even Gizoogle Translate helps fo sngular words rathar than a phrase.

Learnng fo me is quite difficult if I don't repeatedly go over tha words, or if tha video goes tao fast ta understand. I know Hiragana/Katakana, and tha Greek and Croatian alphabets.
