:cat:

I'll just leave this here... and note that this is pretty much true of me: give me a cat and I'll pretty much do whatever you want... as long as I get to keep the cat. (There may be a short list of international crimes and felonies that require more than one kitty, but putting that here would be telling. :P)

*has no Japanese to speak of*

I did look at it very briefly once b/c I was curious about its phonotactics for a con-lang I was working on. :P

Oooh I knew I forgot to ask you something the other day.

I remember when I was just starting out with French, I found a forum in which it said something about the differences between Canada/France French. I am sure there must be in a lot of ways, but I was wondering because some people would say really mean things about Canadians on that matter.

It confused me to no end, so I decided to stop participating in that conversation and I continued with my studies. However, seriously though, how different is it? Or is it just a cultural shift?

Basically, IIRC, Quebecois has retained some very old school elements of French alongside Anglicisms and new terminology that smacks of the predominantly English environment. At its core, it's still French in its most formal register in terms of grammar, morphology, etc.

Parisians can be such snobs about the language. :P

There is a reasonable degree of mutual intelligibility, but the Canadians have different idioms and slang. :P

It's only fair each would have their own "cool" words and whatever those whippersnappers say nowadays :D

*continues to hijack thread*

For example, when I was studying I used to listen to a lot of music to help me with listening and pronunciation as well as to force me to speak out loud somehow given that I had very limited time to practice that.

Sigh. I'll probably screw this up but here goes :D :D :D

Son nom est Emilie Simon, elle est douce. Je ne peux la comprende tres bien! :P

S'appeler (as with llamarse in Spanish) is the more common construction for giving a person's name. There isn't anything wrong with "Son nom est..." and in fact, in some instances, it would be preferred. (Despite what some instructors might say... I find that such instructors are thinking too much within the confines of their textbooks and too little in terms of the actual language.)

"ne peux pas"... apparently, it is common in some places to lose the "ne" part of the negation. (Though its presence is then strictly enforced with things like "ne... plus" which would otherwise breed all manner of confusion.)

Aussi: comprendre, mais je pense que c'est-ci un "typo". :P

XD I get what you're saying, but I'm not sure if that's how it would be said... DELORIA!? Weigh in, plz?

I thought about it for a second.... but I went with like their name is considering it's sort of like an artist, not an introduction? well I know it doesnt make much sense, but it did in my head at the time @.@

Maybe it's a matter of a cultural reference. For example with Japanese when you're introducing yourself it's sort of silly to say "My name is", even though it'd be absolutely correct to say "Sai des" or like "Watashi wa Sai des" (I'm Say), instead by cultural reasons it is meant to be "Sai to moushimasu". Of course, incorporating the whole Hajimemashite thingy first.

But this is a formality anyways, because if it comes the scenario where you need to... let's say ask someone's name you DO refer to it directly such as: "Watashi no tomodachi no namae desu ka?" (what is your friend's name) because it's like a different scenario. I guess.


It is insane how much of culture goes with learning a language D:


PS: I can't stand my typos, let alone in different languages lol. MY HEAD DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE lol :P

... that's jibber-y... It's something along the lines of...

Curse the "illegitimate" child of Christophe's she-dog. :P

I guess you had to be there... or be Christophe... or be his "dog"... or maybe its child... I'm so confused. XD  :stars:

We should start a thread or something dedicated to Christophe. Alternatively, we could just discuss him here... I suggest we figure out what manner of dog he owns first... :P

If I understand correctly... I feel overwhelming sympathy for Christophe's dog.
