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?

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.

*mun isäni on surullinen
"Surullista" is something you usually use when you comment on something ie. This is sad \ tämä on surullista

  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 Allows you to read historical documents from centuries ago.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.

Anime and Manga are useful for study because they're for children, but they're also fucking boring, I get most of my time with the language from music or talking to guys on the internet about arcade games. I'd love to try my hand at reading some actual good literature in the language, but aside from Haruki Murakami and that nazi who stabbed the guy who even knows any Japanese authors.

Anybody got anything to reccomend? I could post this on /lit/ but whatever.
