    Huh. Didn't think about that. Especially weird since there are actually cat demons in the series.

    Japanese and Korean are weird cases because they're both language isolates, meaning they have no families whatsoever and are unique, but they do sound similar to each other!

    Also, don't take it the wrong way. I don't wanna bitch, I just like to educate people on the things I've learned since I think it's fascinating and can help make our world bigger!

    Consider this - German is the closest language to English when it comes to roots. Makes you think, doesn't it?

    Lecture time.

    Polish, Slovak, and Czech are the three most well-known representatives of Western Slavonic languages, with Czech and Slovak being the most similar because Czechoslovakia's split was way more political than anything (Polish is in a group within the group called lechitic languages, among which there is also Kashubian - a minority language in the Kashuby legion - and maybe Silesian but some consider that a dialect of Polish instead, but I digress) But anyway, if you're Polish and go to Czechia or Slovakia, you can still communicate pretty okay. It's not perfect (TONS of false friends, like the word "szczotka" meaning "brush" in Polish and "whore" in Czech), but when we hear each other's languages we get this weird sense of familiarity, like you're expecting Polish sentences to come out but then something's off - English has similar relations with some Norse languages, I think. Can't tell you which, though.

    Then there are the Eastern Slavonic languages. So Russian, Ukrainian, Belarus, etc. Everything to the East of Poland. Not only do most of the languages not use the Latin alphabet, but they have an incredibly distinct intonation and there's a huge vowel shift, not to mention we have really few grammar rules and vocab in common (e.g. the Polish "dziękuję" which means "thank you" actually has germanic roots, as "ęk" is pretty much pronounced "enk", while the Russian "spading" is a Slavonic root). Also, several Baltic countries like Latvia and Estonia have Russian as their second language because they used to be Soviet republics. In Poland and Czechia and Slovakia, on the other hand, not only do we not speak Russian as a second language, but we're also way too far removed from that language to vaguely understand what they mean. So no, we don't speak or understand Russian here, and you can speak Polish with a fake Russian accent to make it sound like you're a wacky foreigner (which makes it really cringey when English-speaking people try to imitate a Polish accent by sounding Russian).

    And then there are the Southern Slavonics like Serbian, Sorbian, Slovenian, etc. again, vaguely familiar-something, not in the least understandable.

    Honestly, though, Czechs have it even worse because Czechia doesn't even sound like a real country

    Great! She speaks English as well, but since she's devoted five full years to Spanish studies, She's much more comfortable in it. Have fun learning it!

Star Trek New Years Resolution

by Freya on 01-09-2015 at 03:37 PM


I'm attempting to watch every Star Trek episode ever, including the movies and the animated series. That is 546 hrs. I have watched the first 5 episodes of the original series and omg they are so sexist. The way they talk about women and treat women in the series is horrible. I made the comment on twitter that if an Ardat-Yakshi like Morinth was to encounter the federation, all of it, the entire federation is this way it seems,

My sister surprised me yesterday. Didn't tell me she was visiting and BAM jumped out and scared me. She lives 17 hrs away so it's super awesome.


Sisters are awesome!
