Note how all the Scandic language speakers have introduced themselves and are now quietly sitting not saying anything.

We are so typical.

Du kan öva svenska med mig om du vill! Jag är notoriskt petig med språk så säg till om du vill att jag ska rätta eller om du bara vill träna på att skriva på svenska. Jag vikarierade som lärare i svenska för nyinflyttade i höstas. Det var jättekul.

For the gender neutral debate I can add that Sweden has recently introduced the gender neutral pronoun hen to be used instead of han (he) and hon (she). It's gotten a whole lot of press recently, but the word has been around as a suggestion for a while.

Yep. Extra fun for English speakers (Swedish is full of words that do not mean what they sound like to you. Another example bra = good). I'm guessing it might come from the Finnish hän, though. Naturally gender neutral and is what Finns have been using for he/she all along.

Or maybe not. I might well be overthinking it just because I'm familiar with Finnish. The difference between the words he and she in Swedish is a vowel so it makes sense to use a third vowel to create a new pronoun. E is a common vowel and is used in the Swedish words for it (den/det) but not for he/she (han/hon).

Ici les gens utilisent encore le mot "vegetalien" ... et ça m'eneeeerve!!!!! C'est une monstruosité phonologique:le son L est tellement proche du R que les gens se sentent obligés d'insister dessus, et c'est d'un grotesque!!!!

(I had lunch with my sister; she is a very religious person and always tells me about the worships she is going to; that always makes me giggle, because the french sentence saying "I'm attending the worship" sound just like "I'm going occult")

[we also use the word "cultos" for religous services- but mostly because evangelicals/protestants wanted a word that was different from catholic mass, "missa". i also find it kind of funny.]

Ahaha! A friend of my family has this story: during his military service, he requested time off on Saturdays "pour aller au culte". His superior, probably not very familiar with protestantism, didn't know the word and thought he said "pour aller au cul." He thought it was a bit of a daring request, and a strange way to put it, but hey, when nature calls...

Ich konnte das mal. Aber sieht so aus als wenn die Version, die meine Familie spricht, total anders ist als Deine. Ich komme aus der Nähe von Bremen, woher ist Dein Platt? Holländische Grenze? NRW?


Mein Platt ist tatsächlich das Menno-Platt... der Russlandsdeutschen Mennoniten, die aus Friesland über das Weichseldelta bis in die Ukraine ausgewandert sind und dabei die ganze Zeit ihre Mundart beibehalten haben... also eher das Platt einer Volksgruppe als einer Gegend.

Coffee drinking Finns unite! I did point out to people at work on the sixth that it was Finland's independence day (and St Nicholas Day)... I love spinach pancakes, but don't really use a recipe. I just dump a bunch of (thawed frozen) chopped spinach into savoury pancake batter. And I obviously don't speak Finnish...

Oh cool and it's also indepedence day in Spain! (St Nicholas as a bank holiday seems like the perfect plan)
But tell me more about these pancakes!!!! (and, is "pinaattiohukaiset " the word that is referring to them?)

Same in french: "culte" vs "messe" (the catholics being a majority we barely ever hear "culte");

It is in Finnish. They're savoury, green, and small (I think Americans call pancakes that size silver dollar pancakes). Typically they're eaten with lingonberry jam. I don't really know what else to say about them. Except that spinach pancakes, boiled potatoes, bechamel, and lingonberry jam was one of my favourite meals as a child. I only make them occasionally now and I'm always sad that I don't have a pancake pan like my mother's to make them into the perfectly circular little pancakes I remember.

Do you know the comic Scandinavia and the World? You probably speak "Scandinavian" too. That's the language Norwegians and Danes tend to adopt when talking to stupid Swedes (but maybe you just switch to Swedish?). I'm really surprised at how badly many Swedes understand their neighbours. Then again, I do really well with different dialects of Swedish, too. And people think it's weird that I distinguish between Farsi and Arabic when I hear it despite not speaking either language. I don't think they sound alike at all!


actually, I'm sort of embarrassed when speaking swedish, but I'm pretty okay at it. And most of my swedish friends live in Helsingborg or Malmö, which makes them decent at understanding danish!

Like fruitbat said, they're just savoury pancakes with fresh or frozen chopped spinach. It was my favourite school lunch when I was a kid, always served with apple lingonberry salad. (We have free school lunches here in Finland from first grade to high school.)

Here's a recipe for pinaattiletut (or ohukaiset, it's a dialect/idiolect thing): http://dinanmaailma.blogspot.fi/2010/03 ... letut.html

It's in Finnish, but the ingredients in order are soy milk, wheat flour, salt, sugar, frozen spinach and oil. Simple!

More languages: Kas keegi siin räägib eesti keelt?

Hey, I love languages. I dont really know what to say though. Um, I'm lea, 23 years old and from Berlin. And feel silly writing this.

Hi, ich liebe Sprachen! Aber ich weiß nicht wirklich was ich sagen soll, und es fühlt sich blöd an öfter dasselbe zu schreiben, also mache ich es nicht. Aber dann muss ich mir noch mehr ausdenken.

Ég tala bara lítt islensku. Ég glemdi mest af tungumál(id?inn?....argh argh...)...Það er svo erfitt à tala :(

Jeg trenger egentlig a snakke norsk hele tida fordi jeg vil ha en eksamen i februar. Det er C1 og det er ganske vanskelig og jeg har ikke hatt masse tid a lese. Og jeg kjenner ingen nordmenn a snakke med :/ Jeg bodde i Kobenhavn for ett semester (det ikke den riktige tidsform, tror jeg..) men jeg forstar bare litt dansk. Det er for vanskelig for meg a snakke.

Ik praat ook niet vaak nederlands. Ik zat op VWO 5 toen ik 16/17 was maar sinds is er ook niemand met wie ik nederlands kan oefenen :( Men ik hou er egentlig heel erg van. Het laats heb ik "taal is zeg maar echt mijn ding" gelezen & ik vond het heel erg grappig. Misschien is er iemand die het ook heeft gelezen en leuk vond.

Je voudrais parle plus de francais mais je pas beaucoup de temps. J'ai lu Harry Potter en francais. Peut-etre il me faut faire ca encore une fois...

Me gusta espanol tambien! Me encanta Zoe, es el grupo de musica de Mexico. Y todo (o el más) que yo sé de idioma es por escucha de la musica. Por esto yo sé dice "escudo chido poder el amor en el asiento de atras" pero no "Please help myself, I hurt myself by accident" por ejemplo.

Voi Vittu. I took half a semester of Finnish and that is all I remember.

També m'encanta català! Only took it for 3 weeks... but want to start again... someday..

Oh and: Wo shi Lea. Dsche shi wo didi, wo mama, wo henyu laoshi. Wo gege hen mang. Wo zai nar. (sorry, i cant do chinese characters on here..)

Lew Ydw I.

Sorry for all the mistakes. I dont want to read over it again or Ill probably delete it all. I also get so self conscious about languages..

Goeidag mevrouw InBerlin!
Wouaw c'est courageux d'avoir lu Harry Potter en Français!
Si tu veux lire d'autres romans en français (non traduits) je te conseille bien sur Le Petit Prince, et les romans d'Amélie Nothomb (en particulier Stupeurs et tremblements, très percutant, de loin son meilleur, ou encore Le sabotage amoureux)
Tchüss!
