Portuguese is gorgeous! It's probably the most beautiful-sounding language on earth, It has the smoothness of French with the liveliness of Spanish. Of course, I learned Spanish instead, so I'm hopelessly confused in matters of Portuguese.

Hello I am Hungarian and I think Portuguese sounds very nice.

Umm European Portuguese is pretty much a dead language, but Brazilian culture is still developing new memes. Think about it, all the new things in Europeu are from American English or Spanish maybe... but Brasileiro has developed a whole subculture or two of their own with their own slang and cute expressions and idioms.

Globalisation will ruin it all, though.

Also to the person who compares American English to British, well English was brought to America by the Brits, and was better preserved there. British is full of French clichés both in spelling, pronunciation and also vocabulary. American is more "purely" English. Though it's true that the cultural livelyness I mentioned above can be found in British to a higher degree; which I find inexplicable!

Constructed langauges in general (12)

1 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2015-12-13 03:01 ID:4xl+8UX0

Lets talk about fake language, in general. Constructing languages yourself, fake language-like writing or talking, existing conlangs, etc!
Ive been trying to build a langauge. I swear Ill actually make some progress on that, someday. As of now I just have a bit of a meaningless poem that demonstrates general sound and appearance
"Slol ne snla snal sesha svang
slol ne snla snlath thnale thrang
snalas fel plr slo mlgn zha
zhe natha
Nyaath al sol ath sava ast
ngathath al so shar navast

zhe sl ftha natha"

also OP could you give an IPA rendering of that?
or vocaroo it so we can more accurately see / hear how it sounds.

4 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2015-12-14 04:36 ID:Heaven

Basically, mostly unvocalized, r's and l's are similar but distinguished, vowels are mostly sorta soft, kinda low-nasally mushy accent, I guess.
Other little things ive written to try and illustrate its sound arent quite so restricted in their sound, so this is supposed to be poetry in it, deliberately made to sound one specific way even in it.

5 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2015-12-19 00:49 ID:Heaven

At times it sounds as if you are saying "schlong" as in "big long schlong dong."

6 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2015-12-19 17:27 ID:4xl+8UX0

well schlong is almost certainly a word in the language, it fits with others perfectly. Maybe 'Long Schlong' is a name.

Wasn't JRR Tolkein a linguist who came up with a bunch of words for the Dwarven and Elvish language?

12 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2020-09-08 17:07 ID:MTdtu/AY

Also Tolkien's Dwarves were Jewish, not Norse or Scottish as Tolkien-filtered-through-D&D pastiches often make them. They used Norse names because those were their use-names for going among the Norse-named humans of their surrounding region, not their real names.

What's the worst language? (19)

1 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2013-01-23 12:18 ID:IMlqzpyd

What is the worst language in your opinion? As a really wordy guy, I don't really like english. It's useful, nice to hear and easy to speak but to write, I really hate it. It's too hard and even sometimes impossible to precisely express what I'd like to say.

I'm not into japanese anymore. It's kinda cool to speak but honnestly I got fed up with the culture (few travels and a lot of disillusions). I'm more into korean and cantonese (I don't speak it very well but I'm in love with Hong Kong's cinema).

What is yours?

The Turkish and Hungarian languages (especially Turkish) kind of sound Korean (" 'nda" , " 'da "). I think it sounds cool.

Indian Languages (especially Dravidian) and African Languages, I don't like. Especially the writing system used for langs like Telugu and the rest.

I wouldn't say "the worst", for my knowledge of languages is limited, but I find the usage of ideograms to be the worst thing I've ever witnessed.
I have studied Japanese for a short time (I have not gotten past the middle of Tae Kim's Grammar), but the amount of vague expressions, the immense number of ways of phrasing things (mostly due to their respect for 'politeness' and hierarchy) and the kanjis made me drift away from the language.

For reference, the link in my name directs to an article that shows many responses to the question "What's that?".

French punctuation question (1)

1 Name: Cunning Linguist : 2019-11-09 14:06 ID:LQMGDweL

Bonjour! I learned that in French they avoir un espace avant les signes de ponctuation, I was wondering if the last word came at the end of a line, would the punctuation mark come onto the next line or would you put the word with the question mark together on the next line? C'est pour un ami. Merci!

Lojban is not an auxiliary language, although it has features that would make a good one. Given that it was designed as a science experiment, it has to be as neutral as possible.
