EE languages

I found this cool channel on YouTube about a guy who likes studying different languages. Here's some really interesting vids focusing on a variety of languages from Eastern Europe:

Just finished watching the Romanian language video. It's so comprehensive I'm pretty confident I know more about the language than you now.

Probably not, considering I'm a native speaker...

Besides, you native English speakers tend to not know jack shit about languages.

Ah pap pap pap pap

Aren't we forgetting the most interesting and unique language in the region? Spoken by a proud, ancient and noble people. A people often hated and misunderstood by their neighbours.

That's right I'm talking about Albanian

Your homework Jeffrey




Ce-ţi doresc eu ţie, dulce Românie,

Ţara mea de glorii, ţara mea de dor?

Braţele nervoase, arma de tărie,

La trecutu-ţi mare, mare viitor!

Fiarbă vinu-n cupe, spumege pocalul,

Dacă fiii-ţi mândri aste le nutresc;

Căci rămâne stânca, deşi moare valul,

Dulce Românie, asta ţi-o doresc.



Vis de răzbunare negru ca mormântul

Spada ta de sânge duşman fumegând,

Şi deasupra idrei fluture cu vântul

Visul tău de glorii falnic triumfând,

Spună lumii large steaguri tricoloare,

Spună ce-i poporul mare, românesc,

Când s-aprinde sacru candida-i vâlvoare,

Dulce Românie, asta ţi-o doresc.



Îngerul iubirii, îngerul de pace,

Pe altarul Vestei tainic surâzând,

Ce pe Marte-n glorii să orbească-l face,

Când cu lampa-i zboară lumea luminând,

El pe sânu-ţi vergin încă să coboare,

Guste fericirea raiului ceresc,

Tu îl strânge-n braţe, tu îi fă altare,

Dulce Românie, asta ţi-o doresc.



Ce-ţi doresc eu ţie, dulce Românie,

Tânără mireasă, mamă cu amor!

Fiii tăi trăiască numai în frăţie

Ca a nopţii stele, ca a zilei zori,

Viaţa în vecie, glorii, bucurie,

Arme cu tărie, suflet românesc,

Vis de vitejie, fală şi mândrie,

Dulce Românie, asta ţi-o doresc!

Eminemscu has some good poems, here's one of my favorite excerpts:

"Religia - o frază de dânșii inventată
Ca cu a ei putere să vă aplece-n jug,
Căci de-ar lipsi din inimi speranța de răsplată,
După ce-amar muncirăți mizeri viața toată,
Ați mai purta osânda ca vita de la plug?"

Fits really well with the modern world really. Genius!

There are loads of gypsies in East Midlands right now.

I love commenting when Romanians fight with locals that gypsies are not Romanian. I just put fuel on the fire and the reactions are priceless.

They're so stupid, they do they same scam all over and don't realise there is CCTV everywhere. Every crime they do they'll get convicted. Little bit different to EE.

I usually joke when I praise Romania, but Romanian language just might be the greatest language ever invented for poetry (and maybe literature as a whole). Seriously!

Since I speak the language pretty well, I can testify that English greats sound like amateurs in comparison with Eminescu. Really a crime that his genius can't be translated.

I'm not kidding here, and I've said it before, if you look deep down in your soul you'll realize that Romanians are master race.

"Pierduți în visuri mândre, priveam fără de țintă.
Și tu zâmbeai, c-un zâmbet cum e numai al tău,
Nu te-a mai văzut nimeni cum te văzusem eu...
Și plini îți erau ochii de lacrimi și de foc,
Pe-al genei tale tremur purtând atât noroc...
De ce zâmbeai tu oare? Vrun cântec blând de jale
Au deșteptat în taină glasul gândirii tale?...
Pluteai ca o ușoară crăiasă din povești.
Dintr-o zâmbire-n treacăt simții ce dulce ești!
Și cum mergeai, armonic și lin îți era pasul,
Rămas în nemișcare m-a fost cuprins extasul,
Am stat pe loc, cu ochii doar te urmam mereu,
Tu, gingașă mireasă a sufletului meu...
De-atuncea cu pustiu-mi stătut-am să mă cert,
Urmând cu-a mele brațe o umbră în deșert...
Pân' ce-n sfârșit ajuns-am să mângâi chipul sfânt
Al celei mai frumoase femei de pre pământ.
Ce zeu din cer te puse în calea mea să ieși,
O, fragedă ființă ca floarea de cireș!
Cum s-a putut ca-n lume așa minuni să steie,
Căci tu ești prea mult înger și prea puțin femeie!
Și fericirea-mi, scumpo, nici îndrăznesc s-o crez.
Tu ești? Tu ești aievea? Sau poate că visez...
Dacă visez, te-ndură, rămâi la al meu piept
Și fă ca pe vecie să nu mă mai deștept."


The pussy he must have gotten with this smooth talk... Unreal

Can't get over this one... I wonder if I can convince girls it's my own invention

Considering how much of my culture is Anglo, I know too little about different English dialacts. Sure, I can broadly tell UK-English from Irish, US, Aussie, and now even Canadian English (the South Park movie plantet the seed, but I only really began to notice over the last decade or so), but I'm not too good on the different dialects in England. I know the Southern drawl,of course, and Ebonics, NYC dialect and I can sort of sometimes hear that Bibi Netanyahu is from Philly, but I have really no idea about the West Coast or Midwest...

West Coast and Midwest are more standard accents... IMO the differences from Somewhere around Kansas up through Oregon aren't that great. Vocabulary more than pronunciation. Minnesotan/Dakotan are heavily influenced by Swedish and Norwegian so they sound flatter.

Baahston's accent is also quite recognizable.

Can you tell NZ and Aussie apart?

YEah, perhaps because the West wasn't settled in a big way until fairly late, i.e. until railroad and telegraph. But I have heard people say there's a general difference between Cali and Illinois, say.

Oh right, I knew about the Kennedys and I heard the people try to seem Irish and speak Boston language in The Departed.

Not sure about NZ/Aussie.

The Minnesota thing I might notice, even apart from the Fargo charicatures.

Romanian sounds Slavic, just the way they speak; Portuguese does too though. Hate how Polish sounds btw although it's a very rich and complex language in its own right.

Tried to follow the lyrics to the boisterous singing of the lil girl. Did she omit parts of it? Heard like 20% or less lol

It's not a question about sides. I know the truth but people in the UK are ignorant. I know Romanians constantly distances themselves from gypsies but I say stuff to bust their chops.

I sometimes do similar things to Hungarians.
