Is comhartha níthiúil eile é seo go ngabhann An Eorap chuici a
héagsúlacht ollmhór cultúir agus teangan agus go mbraitheann
todhchaí an Aontais Eorpaigh ar ár gcumas an éagsúlacht sin a
mheas agus a neartu.


Do you recognize this language? i was way off in my guess.

Irish Gaelic?

Looks like Irish Gaelic to me - used to have a g/f who was fluent in it, a beautiful flowing language...

How about this one:

Waxa wadayaasha baabuurkaasi ay ku socdaan xawaare macquul ah oo aan ka badneyn kii loogu talagaley, kumana dhiiran karaan in iyagoo god ka boodaya ay dhinacey rabaan baabuurka u leexshaan.

It's easily one of my favourite looking languages.

Looks like Somali to me! Says I having a lot of experience living in Somali speaking areas...

It is. You gotta respect languages with words like "macquul".

It's all those 'x's and double letters that gave it away!

How about this one then:

LAN EKINTZA-BILBAOK AURREZ IKUSTEN DU 2006 URTEAN 1.900 LAGUN TXERTATUKO DIRELA LAN-MUNDUAN ETA 100 ENPRESA BERRI SORTUKO DIRELA
Lan Ekintza-Bilbaok, Bilboko Udaleko Enplegua eta Ekonomia Sustatzeko Sailari atxikita dagoenak, aurtengo lehen seihilekoan egindako jardueraren eta ekitaldi honetarako aurreikuspenen balantzea egin du.

It doesn't sound as funny when pronounced unfortunately, quite the opposite of Dutch really.

Certainly lots of x's in the languages so far...:D

There is a quirky Basque tee-shirt (and more these days) company called 'Kukuxumusu' I really like...:)

I only drove from Burgos to France stopping in Bilbao once, hand't much chance to hear it spoken, but I recall I was bent in two from amusement, risking several wrecks, every banner and poster looked like a language you invent as a kid
:D

I have a vivid memory of big signs saying "OGNI ETORRI", never learned what they wanted

compared to it, in Ireland learning that "lar an baile" meant city centre had been as easy as drinking a pint of guinness

MoSe
01-12-2006, 11:49:49
ummm... google says that it's ONGI ETORRI, and it's just WELCOME
:o

then it gifted me this

eta gero aurrerapena etorri zen, guztia txikitzera. Gerra baino okerrago izan zen, ze gerrak gauza asko suntsitu zuen, baina aurrerapenak gure bizimodua suntsitu zuen

:lol:

Q: How many Lojbanists does it take to change a broken light bulb?
A: Two: one to decide what to change it into, and one to figure out what kind of bulb emits broken light.

Q: How many penguins does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: One, and then two thousand huddle around it rubbing their fins together.
