The differences are deeper tha you seem to suggest. The U.S. is in no way homogeneous linguistically (Neither is Australia in my experience, I've worked with Aussies of greatly varying accents).

In Philadelphia people can distinguish accents from different parts of the city. The diversity of influences from languages other than english has a profound impact on vocabulary as well. There are numerous southern and appalachian dialects which many other americans find unintelligible. I've met tons of people who are speaking english as their first and only language that are barely comprehensible.

There's an interesting documentary on New Orleans diversity of dialectical differences called "Yeah You Rite". I wish I could find the whole thing.

Here's a clip from the documentary I'm talking about. Nearly everyone speaking is native to new orleans


Fun Fact: The broad talking at 5:30 sounds almost indistinguishable from my mom's friends from south-center Philly. But my mom from North Philly speaks noticeably different (though still similar)

I'd just like to interject for a moment

What you are referring to an "anglophone" is exactly anyone who speaks English regardless of whether they are native speakers or not. As the term is of French origin, the usage must be the same as "francophone" which is used for French all speakers. Please use the term non-native speaker as it is more accurate

Thank you

In my experience, not really. But there are alot of people who are really aspergers in the way that they deliver their opinions, so if you find someone who disagrees with you, you might get your ear talked off without the person budging at all. But in general Esperanto speakers in my experience have been pretty positive towards transpeople.

sauce: Have been speaking this language for over ten years, and have sought out alot of the LGBT crowd in the community

Esperantoland is like most places: everyone claims not to be transphobic, and whenever actual incidents of transphobia happen, everyone says "oh but we're totally not transphobic though!" Most people, including Esperantists, would rather claim not to be transphobic than actually address transphobia within their communities. However, in this particular case, it's not even something that actually matters. It's just a made-up language. So for most people who aren't bros, they get frustrated and leave eventually... unless they're one of the ridiculously naive people who actually thinks it will be an international language some day.

Ayy everyone. I'm in the process of learning Japanese. Just recently finished up with learning how to read Hiragana on textfugu and I'm starting on Kanji soon, and also Katakana shortly thereafter. Textfugu does a great job of helping me memerize radicals and stuff, but are there any more ways I can improve my long term memory of Kanji, Hiragana, and Katakana? I found a PDF file of over 1000 Kanji in it so that's definitely going to help out a ton. If nothing else, I'm sure textfugu will help out sufficiently. It's a pretty great website. I highly recommend it for people learning on their own.

>also I'm not a spokesperson for the website, just saying it's really really helpful

Anyone care to share their experiences with learning Japanese? Tips and/or advice are always welcome!

There's no way around it, I found I had to write them out over and over and over again until it becomes muscle memory and drilled into your mind. Starting with basic kanji you can make little stories in your mind about how the character has its meaning based on its image, but once you start to do more complicated ones you'll just have to do rote learning. It'll take a few years maybe but keep it up and you'll be fully literate in the language.

Try reading Japanese text such as manga in which you don't know all the kanji. Every time you find a kanji you don't remember/know, look it up and make sure you know: its meaning, how it's read, and the stroke order for writing it. It may take you a while but I think it might possibly be more effective than just studying flash card type lists as there's context to help you remember it when you read it (the story, etc.).

you should learn hiragana and katakana at the same time. really its just like upper and lowercase letters, same pronunciations, just different looking, or slightly different looking characters.

Does anyone here speak Pennsylvania German or have an interest in the language?

Pennsilfaanisch Deitsch is:
  • only a native language to certain groups of Americans and Canadians whose ancestors came from a specific region of Germany.
  • similar to some High / West German dialects, but also borrows lots of words from North American English.
  • almost completely a spoken language; Deitsch music and literature exist but even spelling can change from one author/artist to the next.

I find this language interesting even though it's only useful in highly specific situations and regions. I used to live in an area with a sizable Amish population and always thought the language sounded relaxing. Almost all the Amish past a certain age know English too, and even when talking with each other they sometimes use Deitsch and English interchangeably.

I'm using internet resources to learn some basic Deitsch. Maybe I'll be able to have a conversation with some Amish folks in their native language someday. Or at least I'll be able to tell what they're saying when they talk to each other.

Yes it is. I'm from central PA, and some of my older relatives used to speak it. It's ridiculously impractical and resources for learning it are likely super unreliable. If I were a linguistic anthropologist though, it would be an incredibly interesting thing to do a field-study on.

That's wonderful. It reminds me of when Southern rednecks really overdo the drawl to sound more patriotic to their homeland. I never lived near the main Pennsylvania Dutch area of PA so I never got the chance to hear a non-Amish person speak it.

I wouldn't be surprised if, after the middle of this century, most of the "progressive" Amish and similar groups have all but switched to English for both public and family matters. I have a powerful attraction to dying languages of the U.S. and wouldn't mind keeping it alive for no practical reason.

One last thought: Deitsch sounds much more subdued and "rounded" than standard German, and the inflection/accent seems to have more in common with American English than with standard German. I also love how calmly and quietly it's spoken compared to English.

I've been trying to teach myself Russian for about 6 months now. I figured I'd do it the same way I did spanish (finish rosetta stone, then read the news with the help of google translate, then watch movies I know well dubbed in it), but that hasn't worked out, either because the alphabet kind of slows things down or because it doesn't share as much vocabulary as English (thank you Roman Empire).

So I'm thinking I'll just brute force it with Pimsleur. Problem is, Pimsleur is boring as fuck. Is there anything I can do while Pimsleuring that can keep me from falling asleep without distracting me too much? Whoever can solve this problem wins a slice of Ukraine.

does anyone have a motherfucking PDF of motherfucking Al-Kitaab Part 2, in fucking THIRD EDITION? second edition is fucking shit; only teaches you some fusha and egyptian, but I want to fucking learn motherfucking Levantine if such a thing is possible. Also third edition in general is far less of a clusterfuck and seems to be an actual legit language course. I know these PDFs must exist, because I've seen the book in the language section of bookshops for a few years now - only they're so fucking expensive. And I can't fucking find the PDF except for second edition. And if second edition is this bad, then fuck, pity upon those poor souls who were forced to learn Arabic with motherfucking first edition Al-Kitaab. Just, fuck.

Alternatively if such a thing is not possible I'll fucking take any decent levantine arabic textbook, bonus points for audio, that's gone any kind of way into helping any of you comrades here into learning the colloquial dialect of Lebanon in particular. Or, fuck, even some Syrian or Lebanese television series (with optional English subtitles) if such a thing exists.

So, you're in a room with all people who speak Portuguese and English, but you only speak English. You're an outsider to the group, just dropping in. Someone's about to speak, and asks, "Everyone speaks Portuguese here, right?" clearly preferring to speak Portuguese.

Do you pipe up to have him speak English so you understand or sit there staring at your phone for the 15 minutes he's talking?

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 find myself constructing a sentence in my mind and afterwards looking up definitions for a word or two after i think / type it.......just to make sure it makes sense. I hear these words and they just sound right from the same gut feeling.

I often use words that I dont know the exact definition of but i know what they mean.
I guess i have heard them so many times; understanding context i use them on my own.

World languages... i have never been on this board before so if i seem out of place sorry but i see no other language board

That's how it's supposed to work. Writing/literacy are new on the scene and dictionaries are newer still. And so long as you're not miscommunicating, you're not wrong.

As a nitpicker, I often do that too. Alcohol makes me care less whether I use words 100% correctly, but when I go back and read drunk writing later there are usually more mistakes than normal. My first instinct isn't always right.
