South korean vs north korean

919 points 14 hours age
I' m also suspicious that Danish sounds the way it does from children learning to speak
from their drunk parents.
Totally kidding, but Danish sounds ridiculous.
432 points 13 hours age
I once heard the Danish accent described to me as people trying to speak with potatoes
in their mouths.

Danish, add drunkenness and you have Swedish, add singing to the drunkenness and you have Norwegian.

Inaccurate though. It's described as speaking with a potato in your mouth because the language doesn't have a single sharp sound, while both Swedish and Norwegian have more of them than English does.
Here's the IPA on the phrase in the three languages:
Danish: Rødgrød med fløde - ˈʁɶð̪ˀˌɡ̊ʁɶð̪ˀ mɛ ˈfløːð̪
Swedish: Röd gröt med grädde - røː grøːt mɛː gr'ed:e
Norwegian: Rødgrøt med fløte - rø:gɾøːt me: 'fløːtə

And Norwegian is said to sound like singing because we use a certain intonation that lets us give anything we say a practiced-sounding and natural flow. We can speak absolute gibberish and make it sound like we're speaking the lyrics to a song.

That is also the reason Threats in norwegian are pretty ******* laughable.

The funniest one imo is when they threaten to stab you with a knife.
User avatar #22 to #20 - darkdanger (07/24/2014) [-]
Yeah, I saw a video about that. Although you really don't think about that if you know the language fluently, it sounds just normal.

I am an englishman, living in Denmark for the last 10 years or so, and my danish is fluent. However, Danes have a rule similar to "a/an" in english called "en/et". The difference is, there is, to my knowledge, no actual rule to go by.. every dane I have asked just says "Well, you can just hear it's meant to be "et hus" and not "en hus".

As a foreigner, meeting a new word for the first time, I can assure you that this isn't true.
#67 to #44 - habibijan (07/24/2014) [-]
But that's the rule, man! You just know it.

But all kidding aside, I have absolutely no clue, as to why it's one over the other.
User avatar #78 to #44 - honkan (07/24/2014) [-]
I think that goes for all the Scandinavian languages. Norwegian (and maybe Swedish?) also has a thrid variation: "ei". I'm Norwegian but this **** still confuses me, how does a language evolve like that? No rules, just "pick the one that sounds right". .

It's common for norwegians to say that danish sounds like norwegian with a potato in your mouth. Mostly because danish has mostly soft consonants, while norwegian has mostly hard ones.


TL;DR: Norwegians are harder than danish people...giggity

The problem isn't the written danish, it's the spoken language. Since we skip nearly half of the letters in the words we speak, making it very difficult for foreigners to understand it. Not to mention the differences in dialects.

Portuguese like underwater spanish? Really? Have you ever heard a spanish man or woman speaking? They sound like freaking baboons with their RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR sounds. Do you want to perfect your spanish? Scratch a blackboard. If your tones match, you're set to go. Portuguese is much more fluid, and a hell of a lot less harsh. If languages were geometrical figures, portuguese would be a ball made of the finest ivory and spanish would be a trapezo-rhombic dodecahedron made of freaking sand paper.

In comparison to the entire continent that speaks different variations of the same language? That's also including the country I'm from. Feeling more familiar with a regional accent is normal, and given the number of countries that speak Spanish, I feel like its only fair to have a preference on how it is spoken on a day to day basis.   
   
That's like bashing someone who grew up in America for preferring that version of English over the more traditional form spoken in Europe.

If you're that offended by my dislike of a medieval pronunciation method within our native language, then so be it.
User avatar #116 to #115 - notnewaccount (07/25/2014) [-]
It's not medieval, it's original. You use more medieval words than us, you are also destroying the language by taking so many words from English, and saying that we have a medieval pronunciation is not facing that you learned it wrong.

That's true, portuguese is way smoother than spanish. Spanish people always seem angry when talking. It's kinda weird, really.

(Spain) Then you should pay attention to our faces when we talk. That will solve your doubt. Or just listen to people in different moods, but I've read that is not easy for foreigners to get us angry.

North Korea is such a ******** ... I don't understand why we allow it to continue to exist. They're a danger to the rest of the world. Their bombs aren't as powerful as ours but they can still kill a lot of people with what they have. It is run by a crazy idiot and is full of brainwashed citizens. They're hopeless. Kill all the people, save the babies who haven't been brainwashed yet, and give the land to South Korea forming 1 unified Korea.

Or maybe give the land to the Jews so this whole middle east **** can finally end.

The leader is a danger to the world... it's not about me not liking him. He has threatened countries many times and has weapons. He's a threat that needs to be taken out.

Also the citizens are brainwashed.

Nobody likes the leadership, of course, it was the part about killing the population simply because you claim it's brainwashed I was focusing on.
