Also about french, language, sounding, and italian+231You hate it when you go to a French or Italian restaurant and all the items on the menu are in their language (and you don't know how to pronounce the stupid word!) so when you order you point to the food you want instead of sounding like a fool to the waiter, amirite?
Also about french, german, and italian+319Heaven is where the police are British, the chefs Italian, the mechanics German, the lovers French and it is all organized by the Swiss. Hell is where the police are German, the chefs British, the mechanics French, the lovers Swiss and it is all organized by the Italians, amirite?
Also about speak and languages+238People may speak different languages but we all speak the language of laughter, amirite?
Also by agent_eclaire+15The UN should be taking action against the genocide going on in Darfur, amirite?
Also by agent_eclaire+605Whatever is the more difficult body to achieve is the ideal type. (For example, hundreds of years ago it was considered beautiful to be overweight because it was difficult to get enough food, and now it's considered beautiful to be thin because we have too much food.) amirite?
Also about speak, language, and german+202Isn't it a little ridiculous that Hollywood films portraying foreigners have them speak to one another in English with an accent of their own language, rather than in their own language altogether? I'm German, but I never speak to mai fazer like zis, ja... amirite?
Also about speak and languages+119it's interesting to think about what language people think in when they speak several languages equally well, amirite?
Also by agent_eclaire+226Why do "war crimes" even exist? Shouldn't war itself be considered a crime? amirite?
Also about french and languages+73Do you agree with the saying: A bilingual person (who has a working knowledge of two languages) is tantamount to having a double personality? I think that there is some element of truth in it. I have always noticed that my friend who is perfectly bilingual in French and in English is becoming a different person when he switches from French into English or vice versa. Does it depend on the nature of the language or on the personality of the speaker? amirite?
Also about situation, speak, and languages+117At first the language barrier seems like a tricky situation: Obviously we're never going to convince the whole world to teach/speak one common language: too much arguing about which one to choose & even if we did choose, it would take far too long to teach everyone in the world. But what about sign language? Besides the alphabets, words from all languages could translate to the same sign... or at least relatively close. Just an idea that's been stuck in my mind for a while. Interesting idea, ... amirite?
