Google produces no results, and I'm looking for a specific english word for a story I'm doing. it'l most likely have the suffix of "cide"

What I'm looking for is the word that refers to the killing of an entire family. Wiping them out. Sons, daughters, aunts, everyone in that family that shares that last name so that bloodline would never continue. Would it be Genocide? I thought that word only applied to the killing of an entire race.

Familicide is usually murder-suicide within the family, but it's used also to describe killings of family members e.g. as punishment for a crime. Distant relatives within a blood line is a stretch, so maybe something like lineaicide? Or you could just be less obtuse. A dictionary is not a license.

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!

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.

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.

I know that traditionally, "It is I" is preferable to "It is me" but I don't know if this is the same in finnish.

English is pretty easy for beginners compared to a lot of languages.

i / you / we /they play
he / she / it plays
i / you / he / she / it / we / they played
i / you / he / she / it / we / they will play

compare that to memorising separate verb endings for each person.
We don't decline nouns like a slavic language
we don't conjugate prepositions like a Gaelic language
we use the roman alphabet...

But once you get past elementary English is hard, every language is hard because every language has its own crazy things.

The more different it is from your own language the more crazy things it seems like it has, but that is only because you don't have similar crazy things in your language, your language has its own crazy.

Hey guys,

Any serious, good audiobooks about learning new accents and especially overcoming your native one?

I'm French and although I try as much as I can to sound 'American' (i.e. basically some blend of what I heard and learnt), there's always that small French accent residue coming back that I really want to get rid of.

Currently it's really not bad at all, or so people tell me. But my true desire is to make it -almost- impossible to tell by -most- people.

I feel I'm jumping ahead here but I'd also love to be versatile and have more than that 'Standard American' accent I was talking about. I'd love to do a Boston accent, some New-Yorkers one, some ebonics, etc.

PS. Just in case, the reason I ask you this is because I'd love to do voice over work in America (I realize the chances are slim, but oh well). But it's hard to believe in when you transpire even a faint of the French accent.

One last random question: Is it me or do impoverished black people from the West Coast sound almost the same as those from the East Coast? Maybe I don't have the ear for that, but I always saw a big resemblance when I would listen to them talk.

Anyway I'm talking way too much now. I just really want to perfect my accent. Really, really badly.

This guy >>12633 >>12631 is kind of being a dick about it, but I have to agree with him.

As an American (from the west coast) Bostonian and Brooklyn accents are objectively the two most terrible American accents possible. Seriously, no one wants to hear that shit even from a native speaker. As a foreigner you will save yourself a lot of embarrassment by NOT learning these. It may sound cool because you hear it on TV or films, but actually trying to have a conversation with someone who has either of those accents is extremely obnoxious. Please rethink this. Personally I actually find French-American accents charming, and most people would agree that any kind of foreign accent is better than a forced local dialect.

Yeah, I was still counting on yours. I usually don't encourage the use of drugs but have you ever tried Xanax? Chill some dude, Jesus.

Alright, I can understand that some accents may be irritating to yourself and others. Fair enough. What accents would you say you enjoy?

I've never intended to have conversations IRL with some half-assed imitated accent though. That's cringe-worthy to me. I like my English to sound as neutral as can be in my social interactions.

But I also enjoy voice over and all that stuff, and would like to explore the various accents of the English language. Just like one would enjoy working on impressions. Simple as that.

I'd be grateful if you guys have any tips. Or, if you feel like being a douche you can shitpost like that first dude and I'll let this thread sink. It's fine.

As long as you understand this, you should feel free to explore and play around with whatever accents you like. No one is going to be annoyed at you for making an impression of a Brooklyn accent. Actually I think it would be pretty fucking hilarious.

I'm sorry I dont really have much advice for learning various accents, but I wish you luck. Most Americans I've known including myself suck at mimicking a different accent from their own. I would imagine it all comes down to practice and exposure, much like other aspects of language learning.

I honestly dont know of any program that focuses exclusively on tones. I've been studying mandarin for a few years now and it took me until recently to finally get the tones right. What it came down to in the end was lots of practice and listening exposure. Rosetta stone is not a bad one for that as you can do it at your own pace and repeat until you get it right. The learning curve might seem hard at first as there is no English involved but it really does start out pretty basic and once you get a bit more exposure it will actually start to seem overly simplistic. When you learn a new word, repeat until you get the sound correct, after a while you will start to associate certain sounds with the different tones and from there it comes naturally. Dont give up just because you dont feel like you are making any progress, you are probably getting a lot more out of it than you think.

Hm, I have trouble advising on this because I had the luxury of living in a massive Chinese city (Tianjin) which had little in the way of English, so getting by demanded I learn.

I had a book and a good friend to work on it with me. To learn a language, you need to be around it and diving into it. Once I understood the tones, I learned some characters. When I could understand characters, I could learn some basic syntax/grammar rules (the simplest part of Mandarin, no doubt). After I got that, I learned some simple sentence structures. Here's where it got interesting.

I began to deconstruct and mess with sents. I would replace verbs, nouns and adjectives to make my own. Travel comes down to two basic elements for you to communicate: "I want this, I don't want this". After a while, I got so used to the elemental nature of chinese sentence structures that I could start veeeery slowly working through authentic materials (native speaker materials). I found some mandarin comic books for dragon ball, and it really took off from there.


Do you have QQ messenger? Find some chinese people who want to learn English.
Pimsleur is alright. Maybe pirate some rosetta stone, it's not SHIT but anything that doesn't involve direct interaction with another person is missing the point of a language entirely.

Okay, so no programs for tones... How about writing? I learned English that way - by reading. There's a firefox plugin that allows to view meaning and sound of every Chinese character, so this shouldn't be that much different after learning the very basics of the language? If so, are there good logogram programs?

I'm big on interactive stuff, since it's easier to engage in small doses on a daily basis and keep a steady pace, than with something like a handbook, which dishes out chapter-sized bites.

Also, where do I get a big list of tone drills? I only see small crappy sample sizes.

PS It's easier to go from traditional to simplified, than vice versa, right? I don't plan on learning to write, so trad would seem more optimal (I also have a history buff streak and learning older scripts eventually is a possibility).
