What languages do you speak?

#1
We're such a diverse crowd, so (as a budding linguist) I'm naturally very curious as to what languages we speak.

Unfortunately, I had to group some languages by family (Tai-Kadai, North Germanic, Chinese languages, Indo-Aryan, Slavic, etc.) or by mutual intelligibility (Dutch/Afrikaans). But if you fall in one of those groups, tell us more in the comments!


As for me, I only speak German, and even that only for a few years. But I'd love to learn Mandarin.

We have a moderator named Grumblesaur who is interested in linguistics. He doesn't seem to be here as often as he used to be. I miss that. :(

Perhaps your interest will tempt him to post more again. ;) :angel:

I've been spending a lot of time engulfed in Terraria, Guns of Icarus, C++, conlanging, Homestuck, and procrastinating on my linguistics homework lately.

Alors présentez-vous à 0600 pour une session d'entrainement rapide.

La pratique est la seule chose qui compte pour les langues. Je propose donc la motion suivante pour aider Dinosawer:
-> Le forum "Suggestion" n'accepte plus que les suggestions en français.
Comme ça on fait d'une pierre deux coups: Dino améliore son français et Josh n'a plus besoin d'excuse pour ignorer les "feature-creeps" qui résultent de la lecture de ce forum.

En Taro Adun!

Native German (as far as Austrian dialects are considered to be "real" German by our northern neighbours :P) speaker with good English and passable Italian here, as a medical student also some form of latin... (only passive) :thumbup:

Something quite interesting I personally experienced is that I start thinking solely in English while using it, something I don't do with Italian or Latin.
