If someone can add a link to the code, I'll try to translate Pokesav (especially Platinum) in more languages. *Please say the programming language used.
Hey guys, I suck at opening posts, but I'll try. This thread is for the discussion of languages...Anything from learning them, your opinion on languages, and showing off your polyglot skills. If you post in another language, I ask that you also translate it into the main language of this forum, which happens to be English. I'm interested in learning some languages not for the culture, per se, but more for the language itself. I kind of get annoyed when some people presume learning languages is all about the culture... I guess it might be the case for most people, but personally, I don't really need to connect their culture to learning their language. I was wondering if there's any linguistics or polyglots here. Would be interesting. I seem to like the Germanic and Slavic languages, and dislike the Romance languages. Languages I'm interested in learning: German - Sounds awesome. <3 Russian - Same as above. Depends who's talking. Other reasons too. ASL - Talking to people who need to use ASL seems interesting. Irish (Gaelige/Irish Gaelic) - This is because I'm part Irish, so I might look at taking it up. Japanese - Yes, this started as an anime thing, but I've actually grown to like the language. Esperanto - Yes, Esperanto, not Spanish. It's basically a man made language designed to be the international second language. This way everyone keeps their main language but can speak to everyone else in the world by learning only one other. Because of this, it was designed to be much simpler than natural languages and can be learned in a fraction of the time. Hope to meet more Esperantists or others who are interested about it. Languages I "have" to learn: Spanish - School course, I would've taken up ASL, but I was kind of "forced" to choose Spanish. I live in a largely Hispanic/Latino neighbourhood, I'm both part Spaniard and Puerto Rican, but I really dislike this language. Wish I could've learned it when young so I could've gotten it over with. Basically just taken it for the "job opportunities". Like someone would need another person who could speak Spanish to work for you when probably at least half your employees can already speak it natively... Seems like ASL would be more useful since it's rare. Final thing is that as always, be civil. You can talk about hating a language as long as it isn't disrespectful.
