Can someone who speaks french tell me exactly what this means, please? Someone I loved left this behind

>Certaines personnes qui comptaient à mon coeur me manque terriblement ... je vous aime et je vous embrasse fort au revoir

I don't speak French and google translate seems to mess it up a bit. Could someone please tell me exactly what he's was trying to express?

It's very important to me that I understand, please.

It's not your fault. That person made the decision. If they decided their entire life wasn't worth living how is that the fault of anyone one tiny individual in their life?

Anyway, he said "certain PEOPLE" plural, not singular.

Most people lose a lot of loved ones in their lSives, and it sounds like this person did as well. Life is really hard. Too hard for some people. Nobody's fault.

Here's one you might not think of: Wikipedia. Articles on things you're interested in written by (probably) native speakers in any language you're likely to want to read.

On a side note, there's a galling lack of Busuu on Busuu. There was apparently a campaign to "save Busuu", except saving meant sharing a video with your friends and possibly learning enough Busuu to fill one side of an index card. I do hope the handful of Busuu speakers are getting something in exchange for this co-opting.

Hi everyone thank you for your time... I went to Japan for a religious studies study abroad program and I absolutely fell in love. The only problem I had was the language barrier between the Japanese people and me.

I plan on going back in 6 months and while I know I won't be fluent by then, I'm wondering if anyone can extend to me some advice on how to learn Japanese and what programs/methods were effective for you. Thank you!

I personally learn best in a classroom setting, preferably five days a week. I studied Japanese in high school for two hours a day, and watching movies and reading (easy) books helped me cement what I already learned and to learn some new vocabulary. Since you're going in such a short time, have you looked to see if there are any tutors or anything teaching basic classes specifically for travelling? They make books and tapes for that sort of thing, too, but, like I said, the classroom worked for me.

I guess you could also see if your local community college offers Japanese and you could take a semester and at least learn some basic phrases and how to read a bit. Shouldn't be too terribly expensive for just one class.

Another thing I've used on and off is the Erin ga choosen! Nihongo dekimasu website. It's from a video series made in Japan to teach grammar and some cultural things. I like the website because it has different little quizzes/activities after the video clips.
https://www.erin.ne.jp/en/

You could also try getting a Japanese penpal and doing a language exchange or something. If you have a mic, you could do Skype or something so that you could get the pronunciations/inflections down. Plus, you could have a friend to meet up with once you get there.

If you get lost or something, I found people to be really nice and helpful...except for this guy at the train station that tried to help me and my friends find the right train even though we already knew what we were doing. Then he wanted us to pay him (we didn't, obviously, because wtf dude). Otherwise, everyone was really nice. I met a little old lady at an inn I stayed at and she was tickled pink that I spoke Japanese.

Anyway, good luck to you! The Japanese language and culture is really fun and interesting.

ELLHNIKA would have been more etymological and more intuitive. Greeks on Latin keyboards only use h for eta anyways.

Pick a kind of Greek. Modern has modern uses, koine has liturgical (religious) uses, ancient has classical uses (mainly if you want to a classicist/ancient Historian).

The modern language gets a lot of Slavic influences on grammar, phonology etc. Spells almost as irregularly as English; there's like 8 different ways to write the ee sound.

Koine is mildly irregular, not nearly as slavicised.

Ancient is as close to regular as you'll get but covers the greatest area of time.


I recommend modern Greek, personally, though Ancient Greek can be fun in a Geeky way. There's only a loose connection between the two now, so you basically have to pick between the Illiad and the Modern language.

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.

It doesn't bother me, I know where you're coming from though. If I didn't actively enjoy learning it or utilize my brain, it'd probably just benefit me more for conversational and getting by. I like that it'll build on what you've already learned and present it in ways that encourages you to make the connection before it tells you. I just think it'll benefit you based on how interested you are in understanding.

Do you have any good resources? There's still so much left on Duolingo so I'm going to finish that, and I've also started French there, but I'm gonna mostly stick to Spanish at the moment.

Right and now I'm just doing French, ha. Well it's addictive because it's pretty similar to Spanish(and English, though yeah lots of French derived words in English) so it's nice to pick it up quickly. I'm finding the pronunciation a lot more subtle though, it's hard to hear the difference between mange and manges.

TBH most of the social and environmental problems prevalent in 'developed' nations could be really improved with the way of thinking that comes with almost any Indigenous language.

The page I posted says in the first lines
"These are regarded as a permanent move: return migration, employment lasting atleast 2 years or marriage to a person permanently residing in Finland."

So yeah, the 4 years was wrong. But you can't just move to Finland without a job, spouse or a history of your family in Finland. (Excluding other reasons like refugees such)

But not really sure either way, so take it with a grain of salt.

not a great jumping off point but tolkein's elvish was based hardcore on ancient finnish oral tradition. he has almost a whole ~pidgin ish glossary and primer in the appenices of LOTR and probably more in the silmarilian.

there is a documentary about a finn (laplander?) who is purportedly the LAST man in the world who really understood the old tales. In the doc, he describes them to his grandson, who roughly translated then to the documentarian.

now pic applies to the Angorthas alphabet used by the dwarves. Ang- is a root meaning iron, seealso @ngband and other roguelikes at phial. i wanna say org.
this alphabet uses nordic style viking runes to the best of my understanding, while the elvish (quenya/tengwar/sindarin) uses...... a bunch of pidgin runes that cursive together. this fucking script nearly RUINED my ability to use greek effectively. Damn oxford armchair ripoff artist, ily jrr

sorry for the double post here, but this thread is pretty cool.
I believe pretty much all of the elven stories and poems, and the entire silmarillian is his attempt at grasping those tales. Check out... oh god.
"o elbereth, githoniel....."
lots of love stories and epics and tales about Ang-band (the iron prison, morgoth who was Sauron's master and teacher sort of)

Tom Bombadil is almost CERTAINLY from this same oral tradition. again, not really ancient finnish, but may be much closer to modern.

i almost want to say that the title in the upper left is way off base if it says Elbereth Githoniel, but like all things language, keep it loose. it could be spot on or this could be a nerd's wet dream

How can Polish be a drunkard's language when it's regularly one of the hardest to pronounce? rz ą wył letters

Actually same with Irish now that I think about it. Puirt a Beul spelled Polishy would be kinda like (I can't polish) Pyrztj a Piał or Pieł depending on accent.

They say German's angry but I've always heard it as kinda beautiful and kinda dorky. It's the ö and the ü against the ending words with vowels I guess. Also it almost always sounds like poetic english to me so there's that.

Spanish to me is the language of hard work. Hmong is the language of talking shit and drugs. Armenian is Spiritual but in an old timey grunty way.

Russian sounds always confused but in control, like someone pretending to be cutesy. Or bumpkinny.

Hindi isn't angry as much as it's judgementally disapproving. Same with Punjabi and Romani. And chinese, because of the pirate sounds (retroflex consonants)

Arabic sounds old. But maybe that's because my Grandma over uses ae sounds. Also it's legit a Language of Thing, in which case it's the language of the D´ad, which in Mohammad's time was pronounced by pulling the sides of your tongue in like an l, holding the tip behind your teeth, blowing in that shape like an f or h sound, but buzzing it like v or z sound, and like swallowing almost all at the same time.

Chinese when it's not singing pirates is the language of sleepy kids who act like stereotypes because no one allows them not to.

The problem with your question is because we don't know where you are from we don't know if you are talking about the schwa sound /ə/ when you say "er" or if you are talking about /r/
I'm sure there's a name for it. Both for that specific shift and a more general word for when words that originally were pronounced the same start changing. Don't know the words though.

The process of turning the "a" to "er" is called the intrusive r, and it's a form of hypercorrection.

English accents are split between rhotic and non-rhotic, this happening I think in the late 1700s to the early 1800s. Non rhotic accents, pronouncing *all* er sounds as a spread whereever the English were dominant and populous barring areas with large Celtic populations; so most British territories of the time and later, as well as Boston, and barring places like the US, the Gaeltacht, or Canada. But as speakers where the er sound is always a came into contact with rhotic speakers on a frequent basis - e.g. the British dealing with multiple accents, Austrailians getting American tv shows imported, Bostonians with anyone else in America - they added it back in, but because the brain has them stored as allophones (since they merged) it applies to a sounds that weren't er sounds before. Wiki will probably tell you better.


Generally the sounds you're talking about are the open back vowel, which in the IPA looks like the open a in handwriting (as opposed to the a with the hook on the top), or the mid central vowel (looking like an upside down e) alternating with the mid central rhoticised vowel or the front open-mid rhoticized vowel ( appear each as the upside down e or a small, capital cursive e (or backwards round 3) with tiny hooks coming off the sides looking like the not stick part of a lowercase r, respectively).

I can't keyboard right now because arch keeps destroying my custom keyboard layouts when I update and I'm too tired and salty to not be lazy.

I found this interesting, but just wanted to say I anticipated a smiley face in your post but I guess I just saw the '3)' in the corner of my eye.
