Just wanted to ask. What languages do you speak (read/write) except English?
9th-Feb-2006 03:16 pm (UTC)
I took 4 years of French in highschool. Also, my fiancee knows quite a bit of Japanese so I've picked up a few words/phases of that.

Can I ask why?
9th-Feb-2006 03:21 pm (UTC)
You can ask. Do it. =)
Seriously, the reason for it is that I want to know if I'll publish here something not in English, who else could read it. (true_chaotic just wants to know if there are any readers here that can understand his native language =) )
Not mentioning the small fact above, it is just pure interest

Besides English I can read and write in French and German. I can also read and write a small amount of Spanish as well.
9th-Feb-2006 03:25 pm (UTC)
German (my native language).
9th-Feb-2006 03:36 pm (UTC)
Russian, estonian
9th-Feb-2006 03:36 pm (UTC)
I know a bit of Cantonese (southern Chinese)

Biblical Hebrew, Spanish and French fairly well. Decently OK at Klingon. A bit of German, koine Greek, Latin, Coptic, Syriac, Armenian and Farsi.

But not Russian. Though I believe "potzloi minya" is "kiss me" and "mokroi kuritza" is "wet chicken." :D

You believe right =)
but not "potzloi", more correct : "potselyi", and not "mokroi". "Mokraya" :D

I'm marginally competent in Spanish and German. I'm sure I sound like a six year old in German and a slacker middleschooler in Spanish, though. :)

I can do well enough in written French (Canadian French), and understand a bit of Danish. I'm trying to learn Sindarin, though.

I've had several years in Spanish, and can understand at least half of what I read (don't ask me to respond in that language, though -- my recall's gone to hell since I haven't used it in five years). I've also discovered this gives me passing competency at other Romance languages -- I can get something out of basic sentances (subject-verb-object, with maybe an adjective or two), but won't even get the gist of complex comments. I've started learning Japanese, but I couldn't read anything more complicated than a children's book yet.

I know some Perisan. Had to pick it up because my girlfriend's dad is from the Middle East.
9th-Feb-2006 05:33 pm (UTC)
English only, pardner.
9th-Feb-2006 05:34 pm (UTC)
Waitwait...I wanna change my answer. I speak Common.
12th-Feb-2006 04:38 pm (UTC)
The most clever answer here!!! =)

*sigh* i'm a stupid american.

I've taken four years of Japanese, and I'm trying to elaborate on it watching subbed anime, movies, and other bits from Japan, regional languages (the real word escapes me momentarily) just kinda fuzz that up.

I would love America as a country to broaden its horizons and become a bilingual nation, but yea, that's another argument for another time/place.

"A language is a dialect with an army and a navy."

I can speak/write French, it's my primary language.

I can read katakana. Sort of. With a chart. And lots of time to decipher it!
