    What languages are sexy and which ones are a turn off?

    I live in South Africa - Afrikaans is a huge turn off. I hear an afrikaans accent and get slightly annoyed. It's wrong and i'm working on being more tolerant but a different accent is definitely a plus

    Portuguese is very attractive, especially the Brazilian dialect.

    And weirdly enough, gaelic. Never heard it spoken in person before but it's lovely to listen to (i searched youtube). Less sexy than fascinating.

    What languages turn you guys on or off?

    They say? Who's they?

    Not everyone feels that way.

    Yet another shining example of you indirectly flattering yourself since you're from the area.

    I love the Spanish language and it's many versions spoken throughout Spain and Latin America. But honestly, the whole theatrics of how Argentinians speak and the whole rioplatense is my least favorite. The whole use of the medieval "vos" instead of "tú" is archaic. And Lunfardo and "vesre" which were basically prison slang developed as forms of code in order to not be understood is now common in casual (informal/slang) speech. All that along with all the indigenously borrowed words from native tribes and the different verb conjugations in Spanish (e.g. correct Spanish - tú corres, rioplatense - vos corrés) all make for a mishmash for a language. It's kinda ghetto.



    Oh NOOOO she didn't!!!! She just said all indigenously borrowed words from native tribes and the different verb conjugations in Spanish sounds like shit!!!!


    Are you going to take this David?!?!???!!

    You're wrong. Read and learn:

    1 - Rioplatense spanish is not archaic at all you idiot, all the opposite, we speak and sound like this because of our Italian roots. You probably have no idea but Uruguay and Argentina received huge European immigration waves during the IX and XX centuries. We basically speak spanish with italian accent and words.

    2 - The few nomadic tribes that were present in Uruguay when the original spanish settlers arrived were exterminated right away, that's why we don't have indigenous people in our country nwadays and we're mostly white, an exception in Latin America. So no, no borrowed words from natives at all, except maybe a few from the very early spanish days (like the word Uruguay or gaucho).

    Hopefully you realized the nonsense you wrote. Now go fuck off somewhere else.

    Yes, I know that rioplatense was basically formed from a predominantly Italian influence. That's why most accent marks are on the end of most words that are typically 'grave' in Spanish. Italian puts a lot of the accent stress on the final syllable. Italians like to think they're 'singing' when they speak and they're so in love with the way they speak Spanish. It comes off as exceedingly pretentious.

    And there's nothing wrong with indigenous vocabulary coming from the local areas. Words like tomate, coyote and chicle are all from the indigenous areas of Mexico. Since the influence of the lowlife Europeans who fled to your homeland and bastardized Spanish it's just a mess of a language. Lunfardo en vesre are basically ridiculous and is the equivalent to kids speaking pig Latin. icon_lol.gif

    There are two indigenous influences in the rioplatense language. They consist of Quechua, Guaraní.

    And for the rest of you who may not know, most rioplatense speaking people think they're better than the rest of Latin America. It's because of their European background. They think this makes them superior compared to darker and/or more indigenous people in their very own respective countries. But they fail to grasp that more than likely their ancestors from Europe were basically low class scum who couldn't cut it in their homeland. So they fled to South America for an easier life. And this whole "Soy europeo y de la raiz blanca." is also what perpetuates racism in South America. Need a good example? Just talk to Gavita666 Perón for five minutes and you'll be convinced.

    The whole use of "vos" is archaic old Spanish. It's use was medieval and as Spanish evolved in Spain and most other accessible parts of Latin America "vos" became tú. It is an archaic form of vuecencia, which is a contraction of "vuestra excelencia" and in English means "your excellency." When knowing this and you speak to some chump in rioplatense you can't help but roll your eyes every time you hear "vos."


    +1
    I was born in a Latin American country, so I speak Spanish quiet well, and to be honest, I prefer 1000 times to use "tú" or "usted" than "vos", it sounds so disrespectful and informal...I have heard people from my native country saying, " y vos que te crees hablando de tú" they believe only snop people uses that form, however it makes sense what MuchMoreThanMuscle wrote, I guess as people reaches a higher level of education, they identify how rudimentary the use of "vos" is.

    Thanks for the note buddy, I'm glad and surprised you know more about Spanish than some other guys here, including myself, even when it is not your native language. icon_wink.gif

    I have met some very hot Afrikanns guys - and their language is basically a form of Dutch. I actually like their accented English.

    If you like hearing Irish or Scotish, get up there soon, before the last speakers croak.

    Liv Ullmann or Bibi Andersson speaking Swedish in a Bergman movie can entrance me for days.

    I've met some hot Afrikaaners but their accents turn me off. They sound dumb if they can't speak english properly.

    For instance in Afrikaans there is no plural is singular like in English: "I AM" and "we ARE". There is no such distinction in afrikaans. Everything is "is": "Ek is" - i am o- "ons is" - we are. So then afrikaans people say "I is and he is and she is and they is" or the other way "they are, we are, she are, I are".

    Their past tense is also simple - add a "ge" to the beginning of the verb and it becomes past tense. They think the same applies to english with the "ed" and then come up with "runned" and "thinked".

    I find Xhosa, Vhenda and Zulu accents quite nice though. Everything they say sounds so interesting/sassy.

    Is this mis-speaking of English common among Afrikaaners? Those that I met there spoke standard english (with an obvious accent).

    The thing about simple plurals and verb tenses is present in other germanic languages. For example, in Norwegian (and I believe Danish and Swedish as well), almost all verbs have only one form for all persons - I, we, you, You, he, she, it, they - all have the same form.

    Maybe it bothers you more because it is your country. Being a foreigner there, the mis-pronunciation of English would not bother me at all. On the other hand, it is hard for me to get used to the way Indians and Pakistanis speak English - a very odd sounding accent.

    Canadian French - as a Canadian I might be a bit biased, but it's definitely not my first language. Also - even amongst Canadians, there's not many others I know of who would prefer Canadian to standard French.

    Swedish

    Wow....just wow

    - First:

    You looked like a complete idiot the entire time you were “correcting” me over something as basic as the word Gaucho. icon_lol.gif
    The fact you don’t know about it shows your ignorance, but the fact you were trying to correct me was over the top. I laughed out loud while reading your pretentious rant and how you made a fool of yourself once again. So pay attention:

    - This is a “guacho”
    156474_550939108268146_291974007_n2.jpg?
    And this is a GAUCHO you IDIOT!!!
    gaucho-horseback_13347_990x742.jpg

    -Second:

    Rioplatenses don’t think “we are better than the rest”, we just are, which is different. Take a look at the latin America stats and you will see Uruguay and Argentina rank at the top (as the best), always.
    We do have different background and culture than the other latin countries and don’t relate much to them, can they blame us? To give an example Uruguay and Argentina are among the most liberal countries in the world regarding LGTB, however indigenous neighbors like Peru have a president that thinks “people become gay because they eat too much chicken”. No sorry, we don’t relate. And that’s just an example, but in general terms our culture is quite different than the rest. It’s just a fact.

    Here’s a very descriptive song (that Im sure you wont be able to understand) that describes how Uruguay feel regarding Latin America. It might be offensive to some, but it’s the truth, and the band are Grammy winners, I like how they get recognition even when they're not politiccaly correct.



    - Third:

    My ansestors weren’t any more “low class scum” than yours, motherfucker. All mmigrants left Europe to seek for a better future whether they headed to USA or Argentina and Uruguay. And I can tell the ones here were definitely no scum, they (we) created an awesome country, so show some respect you onion ring asshole.

    Also if you think European immigrants were scum what does that make black slaves, like the millions that were taken to USA huh? I don’t even wanna know how you’d classify them. You have a very racist mentality and should be ashamed of yourself.

    And lastly, you as a US American shouldn’t speak of clash of cultures. The racism in USA is nowhere to be seen around here. We treat our blacks with much more respect than you treat yours, so shut your mouth and open your eyes you might learn how to be a better person.

    That kind of mis-spelling is common among afrikaaners. But i tend to dislike germanic languages such as german and norwegian. The gargling thing they do at the backs of their throats is just not appealing.

    There are so many indians in south africa though. Their accents vary from those that immigrated here who can barely contruct a sentences, to natives who have a gujarat or hindi accent. I find their ACCENTS KIND OF comical, but indian accents can also be extremely sassy. If you've never heard indian girls argue before, you should totally youtube it
