You don't **** with Old English.
User avatar #20 to #9 - daentraya (07/23/2013) [-]
I have decided to try and learn old English so i can spontaneously speak like this. The English classes I currently have in school are absolutely useless, since i live in Denmark

(I'd also suggest watching period movies to get a better idea of how the speech flows naturally. Jane Austin is a good place to start if you can stomach it.)
User avatar #24 to #23 - snowshark (07/23/2013) [-]
The shameful truth is such speech is devilishly simple to replicate. One merely replaces the taudry and mundane words with language of a greater complexity. "Old English" as it were, is leagues from the garbled gibberish we see transposed over the visage of poor Joseph Durcrux as it differs in almost every respect.

Time has bourne simplicity to the English Language, both naturally and forcibly in the case of the rowdier colonials, hence true "Old English" is not what you should chase, rather I suggest unto you a thesaurus website to translate your baser English words to those with more elegance.

Twas how I began and now such speech rolls from my tongue as though it were but air.

(Here's a site that should help: You need to login to view this link )
User avatar #31 to #24 - daentraya (07/23/2013) [-]
Thank you for this advice. But i reckon it's more than habitually replacing words. It is the speech patterns themselves, remembering all the words, and transform even the most mundane sentences into polished works of wordsmithing. It is an art made difficult by the fact that we use language all the time, and replacing and changing habits on such a constant means of communication is difficult.
I decided that i'd find some Lovecraft books, since my mind absorbs and thinks with the accents and fashions of whatever

Also, if it helps, when speaking like that you can use any word in the english language for the words "Penis, Breasts and Drunk".

"I say, I'm going down to the public house to get utterly dumbelled."
"Put your Lampshades away, dear, they are for my eyes only!"
"Egads! My ballywiggler has warts on!"

That is mighty humorous. I had found a list of words rarely used, like skedazzle and mindbogglingly and such. Douglas Adams vocabulary has some strange gems of the English language.
As for the synonym dictionary you send me; I often use them to diversify my words. I'm trying to be a writer, and having a more varied vocabulary helps tremendously. When i have one day hopefully mastered this fancy technique, i shall write a story about a goat in that fashion. So can i ask for any random component of a story i can add to it?
User avatar #47 to #42 - snowshark (07/23/2013) [-]
The goat somehow has to overcome his crippling fear of heights and paranoia that the goat-government (The Goatvernment) is spying on him.
User avatar #48 to #47 - daentraya (07/23/2013) [-]
I love you for actually giving me an idea like that.
Hmm.. But how would a goatvernment even work? What would the point of it be? Arent they still domesticated animals? This is not quite the direction i usually take my stories. They are often about madness, goats and death
User avatar #51 to #48 - snowshark (07/23/2013) [-]
See, Douglas Addams throws you for a loop in every chapter by making the universe inherently magnificent, huge and fantastic and then ruining it with beurocracy, warped logic and pessimism. Hence why there is a race of people who build custom-tailored planets but because of a space-recession they decided to go into stasis until the universe could afford their ridiculously expensive services again.

Also why the Vogons exist. Big, fat, disgusting, unimaginative, bureaucratic tubs of lard that are, of course, in charge of pretty much everything.

You could make a 1984 inspired goat story or something along those lines. Addams tended to parody what we expected the future to be by applying all of the things about life now that is so terrible like bureaucracy and health-and-safety and just turning what could have been a really fantastic voyage in space into an inconvenience-filled parody of the genre of Sci-Fi in every respect.

The protagonist isn't a hero of any kind. He's a selfish, lost, grumpy Brit in a dressing gown who wants nothing more than a cup of tea (which of course he can only find in Britain... which got blown up to make room for a galactic civic engineering project) who, rather than being marvelled at the world around him, is just irritated by all the worthlessness that is the Addams universe.
User avatar #52 to #51 - daentraya (07/23/2013) [-]
I have yet to read 1984, even though i own the book.

It's a grand idea. I guess i have to separate this whole strain into it's own universe. I just cant see how this would work with goats. I want mental instability, homicidal tendencies and a series of unfortunate events. But that is the point of the other goat strain..
Hmm.. I need some special ***** for my madness+death+goat formulate, something unique, something utterly crazy

*In Freeman's Voice but some words are elongated for when the goat bleats*

"Alan, you kno-o-o-o-ow you gotta kill that bitch before she gives you those pills. You don't want me to get in a ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-d mood now, do ya?"

If not freeman, then perhaps some other celebrity with a well-known voice. If you're going for a surreal comedic edge that kind of thing might help.

If you are writing in a Douglas Adams style then you need to throw in things that aren't completely insane. They need to be really unlikely or very out-there but still somehow believable. I.E:

Disaster Area
A plutonium rock band from the Gagrakacka Mind Zones, they are generally held to be not only the loudest rock band in the Galaxy, but in fact the loudest noise of any kind at all. Regular concert goers judge that the best sound balance is usually to be heard from within large concrete bunkers some thirty-seven miles from the stage, while the musicians themselves play their instruments by remote control from within a heavily insulated spaceship which stays in orbit around the planet – or more frequently around a completely different planet. Their songs are on the whole very simple and mostly follow the familiar theme of boy-being meets girl-being beneath a silvery moon, which then explodes for no adequately explored reason. Many worlds have now banned their act altogether, sometimes for artistic reasons, but most commonly because the band’s public address system contravenes local strategic arms limitations treaties. This has not, however, stopped their earnings from pushing back the boundaries of pure hypermathematics, and their chief research accountant has recently been appointed Professor of Neomathematics at the University of Maximegalon, in recognition of both his General and Specific Theories of Disaster Area Tax Returns, in which he proves that the whole fabric of the space-time continuum is not merely curved, it is in fact totally bent.

Disaster Area’s frontman, Hotblack Desiato, an old friend of Ford Prefect’s, is spending a year dead for tax reasons.

Fridge brilliance is an art.
I can't really write in his style. His mastery of language and giggles are far to superior to me to grasp, but i would very much like to write like him. His English is just so delicious.
Currently i am writing small realistic stories about a man with a goat of radiating madness. I dont know when I'm gonna drop in the aliens. But i wrote it in his universe, and in this, the felines are a superior hyperintelligent pandimensional race like the mice, but in their infinite wisdom, they decided that cozy lives of pets to all kinds of races is the superior way to go. Underground and simple as they live, they were right under the noses of the mice, frolicking around and being worshipped on the mices computer. This will eventually cause the systematic destruction of everything in existence, and them taking over every new and slightly more confusing universes.
User avatar #53 to #50 - snowshark (07/23/2013) [-]
I would have thought the cats would be the ones radiating malevolence and madness... they certainly seem to inspire it in others, but still, the evil goat is a nice touch.

I will say that ambition is the language of the writer though. I'd say, if you want to practice his style, write some entries to the guide. Try and find something you want to write a small bit about and try to get his style down. Personally I'm very lucky as I got the full audiobooks of both 2 radio dramas and listened to them petty much once every week whilst doing homework and occasionally sleeping, so now in real life I talk like one of his books.

I go off on tangents in the middle of sentences, sort of like the one I'm doing now but far less self-referencial, and his sense of dry, pessimistic wit has stuck with me, which is why I like to think of myself as a funny guy. (I got into the top 50 of FJ once without even really trying, all thanks to Douglas Addams... well, him and Eoin Colfer and the rest of British humour in general which I drink up like sweet godly nectar and can you see what I mean about tangents?
User avatar #56 to #53 - daentraya (07/23/2013) [-]
I don't actually think the goat has any special magical abilities of doom. In the first instance, it only drove a dying addict mad by reminding him of the childhood memory that drove him down that path. In the second, it's not really there. The third, it's just the object of desire for a jealous little girl.. I just throw goats in wherever i can, really

Mental language is so important for this. I really should do the same. I thought about just reading older and older books to solidify the old style into my mind, but audio.. Oh bloody hell thats brilliant. His stories are pure gold to listen to anyway

I dont notice tangets. I just read on. Dry, pessimistic wit is best wit. I wish i had it. I often just write what seems like dark sad stories while chuckling all the while. Incorporating actual humor into it would surely be an improvement, but i lack genuine wit
User avatar #58 to #56 - snowshark (07/23/2013) [-]

It is just practice that makes perfect and thankfully for you you have access to the internet. Spend some time with the newest uploads section. Try to think of something funny relating to every picture you come across. If it's good you'll net yourself some thumbs, if not people will likely ignore it. The truth of the matter is that wit is just your ability to make a joke. FJ is good for practice because it makes the jokes for you, you then add to the joke in the comment section.

I'd also suggest watching shows like Have I Got New For You or Mock The Week. Yo can often find sections, if not full episodes on youtube. It's fun to watch but more importantly your brain is being shown wit, which means it will be easier to be witty in future.

Like all skills, practice makes perfect. Now, some people will likely be wittier than others but that's just life. I add a lot of casual humour when I write. Nothing that derails the plot or hurts he characters, but titbits that make my style a little more casual as opposed to the viciously dictatorial style that most fantasy writers employ. I find it makes reading what I write easier for the reader and makes them more immersed in the story whilst still injecting a few smiles onto the less dramatic/tense moments.
User avatar #59 to #57 - daentraya (07/24/2013) [-]
Humor is a good addition to many things. Like HP and the Methods of Rationality, which has everything i could ever want in a story, including incredibly clever humor which i can't hope to attain for myself. I bought a book called 'why everyone (else) is a hypocrite', and the humor in it makes it go easier. CrashCourse uses it in all their educational videos..

It's odd to try and be funny, when i just occasionally amuse myself with something stupid. I've never thought about consciously trying, and i am skeptical as to how it will work
User avatar #60 to #59 - snowshark (07/24/2013) [-]
So? People were skeptical when Mendeleev proposed his periodic table of elements. They were skeptical when J.K. Rowling showed up in their offices with a little book called Harry Potter. Hell, they were skeptical when when a gay man wanted to make Rock music (his name was Freddie Mercury by the way).

Skepticism is good, it's a natural defence of your belief systems, but what have you really got to lose versus what you have to possibly gain? And it's probably going to be quite funny along the way to boot.
User avatar #61 to #60 - daentraya (07/24/2013) [-]
My own personal sense of humor and amount of wit is known best by me, and with the measly amount i could possibly muster, i should just try to monitor it for a while. And pardon me on the sentence structures. I keep finding that i write two parts in the wrong order, and I'm fairly certain danish is to blame. Of all the things danish cant do, a targeted 'you', that sentence structure, and word one can use instead of 'one' in that sentence.
Oh well, my quest to master the english language shall continue, in the name of goat.
User avatar #78 to #61 - daentraya (07/25/2013) [-]
Indeed. I dont like noisy crowds, so participating wouldn't be nice for me. That's one thing keeping me from going to metal concerts
User avatar #62 to #61 - snowshark (07/24/2013) [-]
Aye, crossing language barriers is far more difficult than people initially think because even if you can get down the words the sentence structures are really different.

French traditionally puts the description of the object after the object (Chaise Blanc) whereas in English it's the other way around (White Chair). It goes further than that but it's a good example. Still, just gotta keep at it, dude. If you're in need of funny practice, you've got FJ, until then, Goat luck.

User avatar #74 to #62 - daentraya (07/24/2013) [-]
staph ruining mai dreeaamss plz.
I'm just expecting it out of sheer amount and number of bullocks happening absolutely everywhere. There is ******** building up on every dahm front, and it's all growing exponentially. I have taken all of the positive signs leading to our cleverness finding a way out, and i expect that we will eventually. But how quickly and with what methods can use stop a mobile and accelerating pile of ******** that is about to reach a fan when our current efforts are pathetic and halfhearted? I would like to see it happen just for the sheer awe of it

3) One human is smart, a small group of humans may or may not be smarter, but on the whole, humanity is also stupid and full of ******** and passive destruction
4) I cant predict the future of our technology, but until i know of all the miracle technologies and methods, i will go with 'we have lots of magic to develop'.
User avatar #75 to #74 - snowshark (07/24/2013) [-]
Eh, if **** hits the fan then maybe it'll be a political thing as opposed to the disorganised destruction of society as we know it. Either way, I'm steering clear of the coastline.
User avatar #72 to #62 - daentraya (07/24/2013) [-]
This is where George Carlin's impact on me truly shines through. I have reached the point where i completely switched sides, and now i just want to see something entertaining or interesting. And while the miraculous survival and development of humanity is interesting, what is more exciting and terrible and special than a short downfall caused by the combined force of all of our mistakes?
I also find it hilariously ironic when earth loving hippies are against nuclear power plants in all of their ignorance
I believe that humanity won't be able to fully prepare for anything like that, at least not before the impact is ******** back in our faces. We are trying, but to fully cushion whats to come is not possible. Some **** will hit the fan, and humanity will then have to pull through and rise back up again. That's what i expect and want. I want a full great premise for continuing to be part of this show
User avatar #73 to #72 - snowshark (07/24/2013) [-]
Perhaps, but it seems to me like that's... not gonna happen. You see, so much work has been put into cushioning the impact (the impact that is essentially the disappearance of oil) that we won't feel much of a sting from it. Cars already have perfectly viable alternative fuel sources to petrol (Cheaper ones too).

The only problem is aeroplanes and ships. So far as I see it aeroplanes and ships are the most vital form of transportation in the world because they allow the world to stay interconnected. An alternative fuel for them needs to be made viable (I don't know if one has or hasn't by this point but I'm sure we'll conquer that mountain soon enough.

George is right that the concept of total world-wide catastrophe would be pretty interesting what he doesn't mention is the sheer unlikeliness that that is going to happen. He either doesn't know or he doesn't care because it's comedy and he's allowed to do what he likes because it's funny (which I agree with) but either way nothing so dramatic as that is on the horizon for the foreseeable future. If need be we can still go back to coal-powered ships and we've got plenty of coal and that would keep global trade and travel afloat, if at a lesser degree, and the internet, which is one of the primary means of communication now, would remain up.

Honestly, it's turning molehills into mountains by this point because all the skeptics seem to forget two really crucial things.

1) Human beings are ******* astoundingly smart when they want to be.
2) Human beings are ******* stubborn as all hell! (Seriously, if an asteroid were to hit the earth humans would survive if only to spite it.)

Put humans in a corner surrounded by monsters and they'll build a ladder out of the corner to the top of the wall and piss down at the monsters whilst laughing and listening to Queen on their i-pods. Because **** it, we're humans and we do what we want.

It's a beautiful change about to happen. Perhaps the most interesting one, for me, is religion. A tradition of beliefs that has been in every culture since ever, finally seemingly fading out. Since I got to the fact that religion must have been a necessary thing in terms of culture, thinking, questions and rulings. Knowing that it is fizzling out is a sign of great magnitude, that people are shedding old customs in favor of science and facts. Its beautiful.

I consider myself a danish person. I am very much content with denmark.

So much change, and so much happening. When you take everything that is currently happening, and the steep exponential rate its happening in, then this freak show of humanity must have a climax sometime soon. I hope it's within this century. It's a pretty exciting time to be alive. I was born around 1996, and that was before the internet really became a common thing. And video games too. And movies and science and everything!
User avatar #71 to #69 - snowshark (07/24/2013) [-]
Ha! You're two years younger than I am! Still, it's certainly a point. We are living on the knife's edge and sooner or later we're going to fall off. Now which way we fall, backwards or forwards, is going to be dictated not by the governments but by the people. The people are already pushing society forwards (if you want a clear example of that progression then compare this site three years ago when it was filled with memes and rage comics to now when science posts get to the front page, there is an advice board and people are generally more accepting so long as ponies aren't involved) and the government is holding society back (SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, ETC) and the people aren't standing for that **** . They're fighting back tooth and claw and not with violence and mindlessness but with democracy and strength of numbers.

The people have evolved beyond the government that lead them (though in the scandinavian countries it is arguable that their government is far more in-keeping with the times) and the world is changing. Don't worry, it'll happen in the next century. I predict within then next 50 years we are going to see a massive change to the human landscape of the world. Not only with science bringing greener and more effective technology (see graphine, fuel cells, multi-story greenhouses, etc) but also with people being more open.

On the subject of religion, I believe it is still necessary to an extent. Religion is, at heart, a belief-system that teaches different moralities. People need a belief system. Religion is a decent stand-in until that point and it means a lot of people devoting their lives to the betterment of humanity which is always a good thing. Religion will likely never truly disappear as it is fuelled by hope and the wish to put their responsibilities into the hands of others (gods) and those are two aspects of humanity that are as stubborn as stubbornness.

Rammstein is the only instance of me consistently enjoying German. Most bands across the world uses English, and probably for more reasons than easier publicity across the globe
I'm of the opinion that language is a tool of communication, and that this fact should be considered in order to break down a major hurdle of communication. While many countries has english as their first, second or has options for learning it, there are still too many places where it should be implemented. The world is connected via the internet, so why not connect it further?
User avatar #68 to #67 - snowshark (07/24/2013) [-]
Simple. Because the world is run by old men. This hasn't been a problem for the past 5000 years of human history but that was because the world we lived in back then was very static and stagnant. Things rarely changed and when they did (see scientific revolution, atheism, renaissance, suffragist) they were considered to be radical and unneeded. The people in charge are still in the belief that that is the world we are living in... but it's just not the case and you, I and pretty much everyone else on Funnyjunk or 4Chan or any other universal site like this knows that.

The world became a world of nations at the end of the 2nd world war, seeing the end of the imperial age. But now the age of nations is also coming close to it's end. Not because nations will be disappearing but because nations will soon stop being the way people identify themselves. You see, you and I may have been born in different nations but when you really think about it, we are frightfully alike. We both speak the same language (though both of us probably speak languages the other doesn't) and we both visit the same website, possibly daily, probably weekly. Our personalities have not been shaped by our countries so much as by the internet. (At least that is the way for me.)

I no longer see myself as a Brit, but as a Person.

But the people in charge don't see this. They see the piracy, the access to pornography, the freedom of access to information and all the other problems that come about when you have a tool that so fundamentally enables freedom as the internet does. We are on the cusp of a new millennium, barely over the edge and the old one is still trying to hang on for dear life but you and I talking like this as though it were nothing will become the norm. Language is already spreading through the internet as well as blendings of culture and viewpoint and a greater sense of worldliness and responsibility because humans are finally seeing the scope of humanity.

Change is coming.

When you know the ugliness of a germanic language, you will start to appreciate the possibilities and elegance of English. When i had to translate a story from English to Danish for my writing groups' short story collection, it was absolutely agonizing. I'm fairly satisfied with the way i write and utilize everything i know of English, and having all that forced into a square box of germanic inelegance was like blending a baby and stitching it back together..
User avatar #66 to #65 - snowshark (07/24/2013) [-]
Oh I know all about that. In studying the etymological roots of the English language I delved deep into Germanic, Scandinavian, Russian and Latin roots and whilst I can say the Latin Russian, and (some of the) Scandinavian languages have elegance to them, Germanic languages are coarse, harsh and industrial. Their language is more communication than it is expression and in that sense it serves well as a language but it fails as a means of artistic expression.

However, that doesn't mean that it's not got it's benefits. I think anyone can see the bonuses that a Germanic language adds to heavy rock music as well as it being a fantastic language for the expression of anger (it has other benefits but let's not go there quite yet) however the simple fact is that, like most things German, it is built to get a job done and to do it fast and well.

The English language on the other hand is unique in the world because of it's simplicity and it's complexity. It has roots all across Europe and the borrowing of words has become a big part of the language's culture. If you want to say something there are often about fifty or more ways to say it using different words, tones, expressions and so on.

This, of course, comes with it's own issues. Because the language obeys none of the rules it set for itself (namely because the borrowed words are kept in their pure forms as opposed to being changed to fit the laws of the English language) it is very difficult indeed to learn as most words simply need to be remembered.

When you hear a word in English you initially have very little concept of how it is going to be spelled but as you get more experienced you start to suss out the quirks beforehand.

Still, I hold it to be the best language in the world (and that's not just blind patriotism) because it just holds so much scope in tone, expression, phonetics, cadence... god I love working with it!

It's not that difficult for me, right now. I've spend years on the internet, just writing, hearing and reading, until it's the first language of my mind, and now a much easier language for me to speak.
It's just those small things I've noticed. As well as capitalizing the I and English and Danish, using the apostrophe in all words. A bit of laziness doesn't decrease the ease of which communication flows, but it's things that I'm trying to get arsed into a habit

If only the natives had that kind of view on the English language.

Did they quote Teal'c from Stargate SG1 in this or is it just me? I love the series just because of the odd way he says things.
