Wie geht's? Ich bin Swordfish :D


PS: I cannot have a normal conversation with a French speaking Moroccan! I barely understand what she is saying, and she doesn't get what I'm talking about! WTF?

It's like Spanish, but less extreme. The language, over time, has changed to fit the needs and likes of the people who speak it. But with spanish, there are like 3 different 'ways' of speaking it. some are more formal, and if you speak the wrong one to the wrong person, youre in trouble.

I am a Quebequer and I can ensure you that the majority of the people speak very well =-p. It depend where you go in Quebec. The accent is really different depending where you go in Quebec.

Here some examples of linguistic deformations which we say (oueske ta mi ca'''''''''où a tu mis cela) - (cé l'fun'''''c'est amusant) - (ta tu fait ca?'''as-tu fait cela?) and of course alot of bad words related to religion ,,,don't know the exact term for this,,,,,(most of the time when you are really angry or when you hurt yourself baddly). Esti de qâlis que j'me suis fait mal (sorry for the bad words on the forum). :wink:

How many language can i speak... French of course, english (using babelfish translator and a French-English dictionary to make correct sentence =-p, I really make big effort to do not make any error), if I search in old class notes I'm sure I could speak latin correctly, and thats all.

Bleh...The languages that I speak are:

English

Conversational Spanish, Mexican Slang, Venizualen Jargen, aswell as Castillan.

I know enough french to get around the city of france...but not muchmore beyond that.

Oh yeah, I learned a little german while playing a game called Free Lancer, over the internet, cause the Cops and Admins generally spoke German...

I speak french (et vive le Pineau et le foie gras!).
I try to do my best in english. This game helps me to keep it alive.
I have some german words sometime (Aber es ist so schwer zu schreiben für mich. Oder "für mir"?.. grrrr!)
I can also have some slow dutch conversation: Mijn moeder is nederlandse. I wou graag een bijtje nog STROOPWAFEL als je blieft. I schrijft maar nit so goet. :-(


When I was young (arf!), I was able to read old greek, and someones tried to learn me some roman-empire latin: Dura sex, sed sex... What? I changed some letters? Nooooo.

I know one italian thing: e pericoloso sporgesi or something like that. It means something usefull in bzf too. :P

I can say that I don't speak:
no spanish: no habla espanol...
no russian: ia nie gavariou pa russki. Ia buil adin rass v Peterburgié.
no polish: ia nie razoumieiou po polsku.

I'm happy not to have to learn chinese (mandarin) ... :shock:

I'm now facing the hardest challenge of my life: learning to speak BZflager. You know, when everybody says: brb, gtg, ns, gl, ty, omg, gg, tk, ty, and all the flags names, etc.
I got shot a lot of time just because of reading and wondering what people mean. :doh:
When will a dictionnary be edited?..

Chtibidasse

P.S. Wow! In the game I'm really a bad tanker, but with this topic I found something in BZF where I'm one of the bests... Au fait, is this correctly said?
