    The L-O member language thread

    This is a thread dedicated to the wonders and diversity of the language of our fellow human mammals.

    This forum has members from all over the world, and it is always interesting to admire the different languages of the world.

    So here's how it works. Here is a number of phrases in English. You have to translate them into your native tongue. Simple!

    I'll go first:

    Country: Denmark
    Continent: Europe
    Language: Danish

    Hello = Goddag
    Good morning = Godmorgen
    Good afternoon = God eftermiddag
    Good evening = Godaften
    Good night = Godnat
    Goodbye = Farvel
    How are you? = Hvordan har du det?
    What time is it? = Hvad er klokken?
    Where do you come from? = Hvor kommer du fra?
    How old are you? = Hvor gammel er du?
    What is your name? = Hvad er dit navn?

    I'm sorry = Undskyld
    Thank you = Tak
    Have a nice day = Hav en god dag
    I love you = Jeg elsker dig

    Monday = Mandag
    Tuesday = Tirsdag
    Wednesday = Onsdag
    Thursday = Torsdag
    Friday = Fredag
    Saturday = Lørdag
    Sunday = Søndag

    Summer = Sommer
    Winter = Vinter
    Autumn = Efterår
    Spring = Forår

    My hovercraft is full of eels = Mit luftpudefartøj er fyldt med ål
    I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts = Jeg har et skønt bundt kokosnødder
    One language is never enough = Ét sprog er aldrig nok
    I paint small plastic soldiers = Jeg maler små plastiksoldater

    Let me hear yours.

    -Lieutenant Konarski at the Battle of Erebus

    Useless a language as it is, I speak Welsh

    Country: Wales
    Continent: Europe
    Language: Welsh

    Hello = Hylo
    Good morning = Bore da
    Good afternoon = Prynhawn da
    Good evening = Nos da
    Good night = Nos da (not a typo, evening and night are the same in welsh )
    Goodbye = Hwyl / Da bo ti
    How are you? = sut wyt ti?
    What time is it? = Faint o'r gloch?
    Where do you come from? = Ble wyt ti'n byw?
    How old are you? = Beth yw eich oedran?
    What is your name? = Beth yw eich enw?

    I'm sorry = Yr wyf yn sori
    Thank you = Ddiolch
    Have a nice day = Y cael diwrnod da
    I love you = Cara'ch

    Monday = Dydd Llun
    Tuesday = Dydd Mawrth
    Wednesday = Dydd mercher
    Thursday = Dydd Iau
    Friday = Dydd Gwener
    Saturday = Dydd Sadwrn
    Sunday = Dydd Sul

    Summer = Haf
    Winter = Gaeaf
    Autumn = Hydref
    Spring = Gwanwyn

    I say it's useless because only 20% of Welsh people speak it and only 0.1% of those who speak it cannot speak English alternatively. That 0.1% means the welsh assembly spends millions each year setting up welsh signs, secondary welsh version leaflets etc... It's worse than useless, It's detrimental.

    No fair- I live in the States and we only speak English. I've taken 6 years of German, and learn French through association, as well as Japanese, and even trying to learn Gaelic (my family is German/Irish) at some point. I refuse to be "just another ignorant American", and would much rather be knowledgeable about the world. We have such a terrible reputation already.

    The worst thing about Americans speaking English, is that not only have we completely bastardized English (color vs. colour) but we can't even speak that correctly. I want to be an English teacher, not only because I want to reintroduce literature to students, but also because I cannot stand their poor grammar and spelling abilities!
