    Re: How many languages do you speak?

    Hello Everyone, I am highly thankful to all of you for making this thread both informative and fun . Thank you, Sacrify-garu for letting us know some simple words in Finnish, like all languages, it is beautiful. Here is a long list of words and simple sentences that I wanted to share with you all today. Hope you enjoy them . But first of all , here is something that is quiet interesting, the word Konnichiwa in Japanese means hello (as you may already know), but a very similar word in my language has a quiet different meaning: Konnichawa - Will you buy this for me? Isn't this awesome or what. You see I study part time linguistics and I came to discover that Japanese alphabet (charcters) actually are created by the variation of alphabet (characters) of Sanscrit. My mother tongue is very much (almost) similar to Sanscrit, too.

    1) Naku ichi tai yo - Give it to me.

    2) Naku ichi tai gana - If you give it to me ___________ .

    3) Naku ichi po - Give it to me and leave.

    4) Eevayo or Nakiva- Will you give it to me?

    5) Thai yara - are you ready?

    6) Mui - Be quiet.

    7) Sa rai le - Ok, I got it.

    8) Saku - Lie.

    9) Saku chapaku ra - Don't lie.

    10) Po - Go.

    11) Ki - To the (If you say Library-Ki that means to the library).

    12) Chu su ko - I will show you.

    13) Sa rai kani - Ok, let's do it.

    14) Rayi - Stone.

    15) Chu ma - Kiss.

    16) Loki - Into.

    17) Katara - Sword (similar to katana in Japanese)

    18) Kuroda - Boy.

    19) Leyi - Get up.

    20) Doma - Mosquito.

    21) Chakra - Spiritual energy (similar to Chi for Chinese and Ki for Japanese)

    Thank you .

    English
    Spanish (castellano, not spanish as is Spain)
    German
    Italian (am currently learning)
    French (am currently learning)
    If they really had a desire to live, they would've been more aware of how easy it is to die.
