I denne tråden skal vi diskutere ting i ulike språk, som jeg demonstrerer ved å skrive på norsk. Dette er for å feire mangfoldet av menneskelig språk. Hvis du ikke godkjenner, er du en kulturelt ufølsomme dust.

Uansett, hva er din favoritt sjanger av fiksjon? Jeg er ganske delvis til science fiction, fantasy, og redsel meg selv, men hvis jeg måtte velge bare én, ville jeg velge fantasy.
 
Du kan endre emnet når som helst selvfølgelig. Føl deg fri til å snakke om hva du vil, så lenge hver post er på et annet språk enn det foregående.

Solo entiendo ingles y español, y un poquito de aleman. De que es este tema? Porque los mods no lo han cerrado? Quiero una piña colada.

Upřímně řečeno, jsem opravdu baví trivia knihy. Samozřejmě, že jsem si dobrou dobrodružství román jednou za čas, ale já dávám přednost trivia knihy.

To speak spanish just add o at the end of every word and you should be good to go.

Actually, you only replace the endings of certain words with “o” when being used in the first person form/

For example, if you were to say “I like the supermarket” you would say “Yo gusto supermercado”. “Me gusta supermercado” works just as well.

“Yo gusto supermercado”

You know what? I’m not even going into a linguist rage.

I might be wrong there, I’m still learning spanish.

EDIT: “El Supermercado” is what I did wrong there, right?

@sting

Yes and no, gustar isn’t used as a transitive verb, like in English: “I like ponies.” Instead, it’s a “Soviet Russia” verb where the subject is the THING you like, and YOU are the object. Once you switch the subject and object’s places you get: me gusta, which is correct.

Thus:
I like: me gusta (a mí)
You(inf) like: te gusta (a tí)
You(for) like: le gusta (a Usted)
He/She likes: le gusta (a él / ella)
Yalls like: les gusta (a Ustedes)
They like : les gusta (a ellos / ellas)
We like : nos gusta (a nosotros)

That is right, and that’s when in “ustedeo” as the formal form because you can also use “tuteo” or “voceo” the latter ones are used depending of the region.

Here in Costa Rica everyone mixes everything attrociously, I sin for this as well.

Ho ho I got all of that! Americans also make fun of chinese, italian, russian, etc.
But actually, every country makes fun of someone language, such as argentinians making fun of portuguese speakers and brazilians making fun of spaniards. See the good side Mister Doe, at last we are “trying” to speak spanish, instead of just saying “taco”, “amigo” and of course, “chimichanga”.

Anyone who speaks italian? I would love to read some of it, one of my distant dreams is to travel to Italy…Someday…..someday

Though being the name of a language and therefore only having the most inessential form meaning of its own, Esperanto means “one who hopes”.

Actually Spanish is supposed to be my first language but I suck at speaking it so bad, I have to resort to speaking English always,

Oh, and trust me, you don’t have to be a gringo to sound like one.

I’m not very good at pronouncing. I think I pronounce English better than Spanish, actually.
