Do you think korean, cantonese and japanese sound cool? (144)

1 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2008-03-17 04:43 ID:X/LDlAfh

I do, what do you think?

135 Name: K : 2015-02-13 08:41 ID:B8JtC0dC

I speak Cantonese, Mandarin, a bit Japanese and Korean. But Cantonese is my mother tongue. To me, these are all distinct languages that are not similar to each other. I think Cantonese/Mandarin/Korean can sound gentle/rude, depending on your tone. But Japanese is always gentle lol I dunno why, even when people are scolding/shouting.

136 Name: Walst : 2015-02-23 19:45 ID:4+JCZ8Wy

I don't think so, I like english sound.

137 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2015-03-06 17:37 ID:EhgtVbPZ

I really like cantonese. It sounds sharp, and cool for that. Mandarin is much more beautiful, pretty lovely really. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-qxGhkRojc . Cantonese sounds 'cooler' though.
Why mention japanese and korean? Those are from a completely different language family, and its contentious if they're even related. Thats like asking for an opinion about spanish, berber and arabic.
Japanese sounds nice, anyways, but i've no opinion on korean.

138 Name: kangen water : 2016-03-07 02:48 ID:te6/6TfV

There's a lot of ignorance in this thread. First of all, what gives anyone the right to say which language is "better" only by its sounds? Sure, they are all your VALUABLE opinions, but if anyone cared to value their thoughts so much, then they would have at least thought twice before they typed in anything useful.

I think how a language sounds depends on a mixture of your cultural background and how you experienced the language in your life. A Cantonese speaker might as well call English an ugly, displeasing language if they heard it the first time, and came across a rudely loud English tourist. A lot of Asians think it is essential to learn English though, because they immediately associate English speakers= intelligent and 'classy'.

Same thing with kids in America. They usually come across a group of Asians speaking loudly for the first time, got annoyed by how strange and different it sounds, matched it with how they seemed to behave so rudely (when really it's just their cultural tendency), and called the language ugly and displeasing.

So my point is, it's pointless to argue which language sounds more 'elegant' or more 'pleasing' because it's going to differ for EVERY INDIVIDUAL.

139 Name: cheersfam00000 : 2016-04-03 11:47 ID:8kF2rbeB

Some people don't seem to understand the difference between Mandarin and Cantonese, some think that "Chinese" is just Cantonese sounding.

If you hear a wonky sounding language, its Cantonese. If you hear a smoother and more Korean/Japanese sounding Language, its Mandarin. Mandarin and Cantonese are very different SOUNDING languages.

Mandarin is a NORTHERN language whilst Cantonese being SOUTHERN.

When men speak Mandarin(especially talk show hosts) it reminds me of Russian and German with "Zh Sh Ch Nye Mie Xie" sounds. Pretty masculine. When women speak Mandarin it sounds more like Korean and Japanese with softer pronunciations.

Of course with China's enourmous size there are many different dialects, but im talking about Standard Mandarin/Beijing Mandarin. For example Mandarin sounds more Turkic and Mongolic towards the west, and can sound more Manchurian towards the north, etc.

Cantonese on the other hand sounds very much like Vietnamese and Thai, well obviously because those groups are right next to each other.

140 Name: Yuki : 2016-05-24 21:03 ID:6n6G2NuN

being a cantonese speaker, i've never actually thought that canto was a harsh language until i saw some people talking about it online and i was like 'oh wait, cantonese really is a harsh language,' to westerners, i guess.

mandarin is a more poetic language imo- but it can be both nice-sounding or ugly-sounding depending on the speaker. one of the things that bug me though, is the way it's, alot of the time, spoken in a high voice; it can get kind of piercing after a while.

my mom speaks hakka and malay. hakka honestly sounds a lot like cantonese and vietnamese; people who haven't heard the languages before could probably mistake hakka for viet, viet for canto, or anyway really.

korean is one of my favourite languages. i love the eo and the ui sounds they have, and the way many of their words end in -l or -k. sounds completed i guess.

i used to really like japanese, but as i heard it more and more, i guess it just got a bit boring--? there isn't anything really interesting, its all consonant sound, vowel, consonant sound, vowel, consonant sound. there's also the fact how all (as far as i know) of their words end in a vowel (i know this also mostly applies to mandarin as well, but even when their words end with a vowel, e.g xiao, it still gets pronounced as a kind of consonant, sh-owh)
