Scottish Gaelic, that's my next big language to learn. I'm well aware of how fucky learning Goidelic languages gets, though so I am not sure where to start course wise.

Does anyone here have experience with the language? What resources did you use?

Are you in the UK?
You might be able to tune in the Gaelic radio and TV. I used to watch a music programme called Alleluia.

There used to be a forum over on savegaelic.org. I haven't been in years but it seems to have been taken down. Might have some resources for you though.

I'm out in Murka. I'll see if there's any web-based versions of that kind of programming. A lot of stations over here do that.

savegaelic.org looks like it has a lot of stuff that I'll be able to use. Thanks for the recommendations, this will be a huge help to me. I was going off of Wikipedia before this, oddly enough it wasn't working out lol.

By fucky I meant weird and uncertain. A lot of the things I've looked into were crazy expensive, of dubious nature, or just plain innaccurate. Like the Irish Gaelic duolingo course, kinda muddles in some Scottish and Manx but the grammar structure isn't right and the cases are a mess. And there's so many different courses on youtube, of varying levels of completeness. It throws doubt over the whole thing.

If you're into Depeche Mode check out
-Moenia
-Morbo
They're like Depeche Mode from "Black Celebration" but more Depechey than DepecheMode themselves. Mi favorite album is no doubt " Le Modulor " moody, yet danceable synthpop of the best kind produced ever. Language wise; their lyrics are deep and lyric with layers of meaning beyon their upfront inerpretation, to the foreign ear, easy to understand with scant regionalisms or expletives. A german friend of mine said he learned to tune his ear to spanish with Moenia's music.

I cannot, for the life of me, find an answer for a simple question on any of the sites on which I study.
I generally know when to use the nominative, accusative and partitive, except for the verb "to be." I at one point thought it would just be the nominative, ex. "Se on taulukko. It is a table" from skimming walls of finnish text, but I later read that the accusative may sometimes look like the nominative. I have no idea which case ending I should use with "olla" as the verb, and it seems so fundamental to everyday speech that I want to get it straight in my mind.

Okay, I've been living in Finland for five months, so I know a decent bit of finnish.

With olla you use nominative when you refer to a quality of something definite (ruoka on valmis 'THE food is ready' vs ruokaa on valmista '[some] food is ready').

Also, partitive when adscribing abstract qualities (mun isäni on insinööri 'my father is an engineer' vs mun isäni on surullista 'my father is sad').

You never use genitive-like accusative as complement of verb olla.

I require music in Chinese. MANDARIN please for the love of God. I find most Canto music is better, but Canto is not what I'm learning :/ Preferably not pop music, its all I ever seem to be able to find.

Is there anything more new-wavey, like Neon Indian, or alternative? Lo-fi beach pop like The Raveonettes or Best Coast, rap, whatever, just.. nothing that's going to remind me of N*SYNC plz.

Is this kind of like asking for good movies from China? Not happening?

So, what's a better semantic domain to use against the idea of Language Relativity than colors?

I'm thinking emotions would work. They're universal, but require thought to distinguish, unlike color recognition, which is instinctual. That said, I can't really think of any language that distinguishes emotions differently than English and Spanish, the only two languages I speak.

The rules of grammar are easily ripped from wikipedia. Vocab is easier, stupid fucking Duolingo is good for that and only that.

Unfortunately, the Deustch chanosphere is fucked right now so you can't brush up with shitposting so well. The helmut kohl imageboard is your best shot for that.

Luckily, it's such an important language that even youtube shit is reliable enough. A lot of people know this language and well enough to relay that info. So you can jump into any video series on that site and trust what you're being told.

I'm looking for a synonym of 'get' which implies that the object or action is received unintentionally, or that it's undesired. Does such a verb exist in English? Yes, I checked the thesaurus, but I didn't find anything that satisfied me.

The closest word I can think of is 'take' as in, "The car really took a beating this winter." But it just doesn't usually work outside of idioms like 'take a beating/licking'.

  1. Helps with understanding of Romance languages across the board.

2. Allows you to read historical documents from centuries ago. Not all of them have been translated into English or any contemporary language--there is a wealth of information which exists only in Latin.

3. Useful for understanding legal, philosophical, and scientific terminology.

4. It's fun.

Not really, we can glean a lot of information from how the speakers of Latin's progeny have changed sounds in order to reconstruct what it is most likely to have been, along with accounts from classical times about their own linguistic perception of the languages pronunciation. Going beyond just phonemes we can understand the lengths of vowels in words and inflections due to metrical poetry. >>11927 goes into detail parsing out the rational and evidence for various pronunciations and is actually a decent read.

I've studied Latin for three years. I love the language, but I think it's ridiculous how many people wish to use it for communicative purposes. I've had a few conversations in Latin, but I viewed it as a gimmick. The real reason to study it, first of all, is to stimulate an intellectual curiosity. Secondary reasons would include the wealth of literature in the language, including some of the most dramatic and entertaining poetry in the world, though many of it is just dick jokes. Religious people might enjoy reading the Bible in Latin, as well.

It does sound like fun, but it's too impractical. It's every Latin student's wish to be fluent in the language and to maintain Ciceronian dialogues within it, but it's difficult in that the language is not modern. This leads to gaps in vocabulary, where we cannot discuss things such as computers and television shows unless we agree on the words to be used beforehand.

Besides, one thing that must be mentioned: the Latin that is studied in schools is hardly reflective of the Latin spoken by the average Roman. The "Classical" variety that we all know was a highly polished form that only the educated Romans spoke. Your average Roman would have spoken Vulgar Latin, which is of a drastically different character, being much simpler. A good friend once made the analogy that studying Latin by reading Caesar, Catullus, and Ovid is like studying English by reading Shakespeare.
