I listen to A LOT of Turkish music.
It helps with vocabulary!

I have to say though, I never liked that Tarkan's song xD


And Turkish grammar is so beautifully logical.

If there are any other turkish songs you like, post or PM!

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

PS. - Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick' ?

 

There's a good poem on the subject:

Buick doesn't rhyme with quick because its originally not an english name/word. Its pronounced pretty different in english nevertheless, it actually sounds awful how english speakers pronounce dutch words with the 'ui' combi in it, but it seems the reason for why it doesn't rhyme with 'quick' anyway!
Class dismished :P

It's interesting that English and Dutch share common roots. The language spoken by the Anglo Saxons was similar to Old Dutch. Whenever I hear Dutch spoken though, I realize that for me anyway it would probably be a hard language to learn. I'm told on the other hand that my French accent is good - maybe because of my French ancestors.

Generally I find southern European Latinate languages easier than Northern European.

 

BTW - I'm not seeing Mr. Perry any more - just a button that takes me to the image. Wonder why...........

^ Weird... sounds like the url still is good and i didn't change anything, but something changed :P

About english speakers and dutch: its funny how they sometimes make fun of how dutch words are pronounced and how weird the language sounds to them, but when they demonstrate it it sounds like an alien language to us dutchies. The ui sound in buick is an excellent example.

We dutchies are generally much better in speaking english than french. I heard more then once that we dont have an accent.

You probably know that 'double Dutch' means 'unintelligible speech' in English. A phrase that's embedded in common language.

 

Whenever I've met Dutch people who speak English, they've always spoken in quite well. The Dutch accent is much easier on the ear than German for example. Lighter. The French too, or some of them anyway,seem to struggle with some English pronunciation.

 

I'm still not seeing your sig pic. I'll check all my settings, but I don't think it's my computer. Could be a forum issue.........

It's not your computer! And most likely also not your settings.
