I read somewhere recently that both actually means the same thing and also read somewhere else that one is oral and one is written. What’s the difference between both?

This is actually amazing. I served in Cross River and they literally have more than 20 languages if not more in that state. Different villages,different languages.

This study is an interesting perspective on the presence and influence of the internet languages, and the exclusion of most of the languages in the world on the internet.

http://labs.theguardian.com/digital-language-divide/.

The Google search engine offers information in only 130 languages, while there are around 6000 languages in the world. The lack of standardized orthography in many languages makes it hard to include them on the internet. In addition, different cultures use different online platforms for different purposes of communication. It's a way to tap into the cultural values of the society. For example while Koreans use Twitter to reply to each other, Germans apparently use more URLs and hashtags. This deepens the digital divide to a degree, but to me it is a representation of a cultural value and how certain nations see the internet and its use.

Mark Graham from the Oxford Internet Institute says, "Rich countries largely get to define themselves and poor countries largely get defined by others.", This refers to the inequality of information on the internet and the lack of input under-developed or developing countries have on it.

Although many people use the internet and we find as a great source of study and information, I myself don't find this state so threatening as I believe the real knowledge comes out of real, direct experience. Not that you can go back in history and verify what Henry the 8th was doing while ruling, but the real, live experience in the city of his rulership for example, is way more enriching than an article on the web. What I am trying to say is that, we may as well not take the internet so seriously. Nor should minorities offend themselves for not having their language present on the internet. I will never undermine the benefit from learning about a certain culture in live visits, but I don't mind being introduced to the language for the first time when being there on spot. However, it may be hard for indigenous and native people and speakers to have their information crossed, for themselves and foreigners, when their language is not present to the wider audience/public, on the internet.

Many points are mentioned in this article that I can not touch upon, so I suggest that you look into it, and would greatly appreciate if you tell me your opinion and viewpoint, on the thing I myself gave an opinion.

Thank you!

P.s. This will probably be among my last posts, as I am being called to attend somewhere and commit a bit more to something else, so I'll be needing more of my time. It was a true joy meeting you and exchanging thoughts and attitudes with you! I still want to hear and engage in this last idea/topic I opened. All the best to all of you! I really enjoyed talking to you all

Awww, I’d definitely miss your contributions here.

My dear,when I found out last year that i was weighing 78kg I new I had to make a change in my lifestyle and knowing how much I love food,I decided to find a plan that works for me. I completely cut out fizzy drinks,ate smaller portions and worked out 5 times a week. I'm currently weighing 66kg and have managed to keep the weight off for a year now. And I drink lots of water too.

So my advice is,find what works out for you and that you can stick with in the long term. For a healthy lifestyle,consistency is key.

Thanks dear. Did you work out in the gym or at home?

At home. Got a lot of vidoes from YouTube. Check out popsugar fitness,fitness blender and superhero fitness.

Thanks alot. Really helpful!!

When we were little, I shared a room with my older brothers.... One night they decided it was a good idea to prank me, they told me a story about a dead laborer that died during the construction of my house and was buried near the foundations (a lie). Then they recorded a tape saying "I'm the dead laborer" with a spooky voice and they played it while they were "sleeping", I think I've never runned as fast as that night -.-

In the olden days, being a couple in the Philippines was a big deal. The man would have to prove himself worthy of the womans affection before any sort of intimate relationship (so much as holding each others hands) is permitted by the parents. We also have what we called panghaharana or serenading. It is actually related to the old Filipino tradition of courtship. This where a woman is supposed to look out the window only after several nights of being serenaded by the man, then the man usually brings along some of his friends to play the guitar or any other accompanying instruments while he sings. And it would take several months or years before they engage in a mutual relationship. lol

Aww, so much for showing affection. Lol

The African language I speak, ”Yoruba” has several words with the same spelling but different meanings. The meaning actually depends on how it is pronounced (accent). Like Okò is husband and Oko is bush. Accent is really very important

I believe he is referring to the way a speaker of certain language will imitate the sound of a bird. For Spanish this is correct, pio pio is the sound for chicks. There is a famous song called Los Pollitos, and the song says that the chicks say pio pio pio when they are hungry, when they are cold......

Oh I see, in that case when a fowl crows we call it as it sounds to us"Kukurukoooo"

Thanks Ari

It is a widely known and increasingly well-explored fact that accent has an impact on how an individual is perceived by others, and therefore on the way in which others treat them. Have you ever been judged by your accents or language?.

For example is it presumed that french speakers are romantic.

No language is ugly really.. the only thing you can say is probably a language sounding funny..and this can mostly happen when the speaker isn’t speaking properly or doesn’t have the right accent. The fact that someone doesn’t understand a language doesn’t make it ugly. In these cases,it comes to me as “funny” not ugly.

I started using dualingo to learn spanish for a while, i invested time in it at the basic level. I took a long break because of work, months to be precise, i recently downloaded it and it continued from where i stopped previously and honestly all i learnt kept coming back as soon as i saw them.

Lo entendí perfecto!

Sólo estoy esperando que mis hijas crezcan un poco más para que puedan apreciar un viaje por Europa. Toda la cultura, la arquitectura y la gastronomía, creo que es una experiencia inigualable y se pueden crear muchas memorias.

increíble. Nunca he estado fuera de mi país, Nigeria, pero me encantaría viajar por el mundo y, si es posible, tomarlo como un trabajo completo. ¿Aprendiste español o es tu idioma?

Español es mi idioma nativo.

Debes hacerlo una meta, viajar es muy interesante, hace que cambies de manera de pensar y te ayuda a aprender mucho.

Realmente espero que puedas conseguir el trabajo que te ayude a cumplir está meta.

Por mientras deberías empezar por tomarte unas vacaciones a algún destino para que vayas empezando a conocer otros países.

Saludos!!!!

Gracias amigo. He comenzado a aprender a través de duolingo para empezar. Viajaría tan pronto como me lo pueda permitir.

We used to have a Nigerian neighbor. At least, the other neighbors claimed he was Nigerian. Sometimes you could hear him having loud arguments with his Filipina girlfriend. He had this way of speaking that was like listening to someone play major fifths on a piano. :slightly_smiling_face:

Who elses loves the African Accent?:grin:

I do like the accent that Chadwick Boseman uses as the Black Panther. It's the Xhosa accent, isn't it? Real nice.

I also used to have a friend from Zimbabwe, and she had a real nice accent. Nigerian is interesting to listen to, but doesn't really click with me.

I’m Nigerian was :grin:. Our accent is quite plain..

No it isn't, our accent is actually interesting and considering how diverse it is, makes it all the more interesting. It's a compliment,accept it.

I actually wasn’t saying its not interesting. Only saying its plain enough to click with him.

Why is an electrical outlet called an outlet when you plug things into it? Shouldn’t it be called an inlet?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why’s it still #2?

Why is it that when you’re driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?

Why isn’t 11 pronounced “onety-one”?

This is so funny :laughing:

Salut, j'aime ce fil et bien que je ne sois pas très bon en français écrit, c'est un bon moyen de commencer à apprendre la communication. Comment avez-vous pratiqué les mots que vous apprenez avec l'outil de lecture?

bonjour, ravie de vous rencontrer, je suis en train d'apprendre. Google Translate aide aussi.

Hi, so i was studying about languages and found somewhere on the internet that there are some quirky side effects of learning a foreign language. The ones that got me are;

1. Your First Language Changes

2.You Empathize with English Language Learners.

What do you think? Is this true?

*Please add more if you think it is.

I’m from the philippines and learned speaking mandarin when I worked in taiwan. And there’s a time my filipino friends called me I automatically replied “Ni Hao” instead of Saying “Hello, kumusta”. The first statement applies to me. :smile:

:joy:
