thanks for the translation, markus!

linguists say that about half the world's languages will vanish in the next hundred years due to globalization...and if you vikings have your way, norwegian will be the next to go!
Don't forget the Deutche languages. Rob Lohman could help with Dutch.

Still need Japanese.... oh Kaku, where are you?

well, i was kind of thinking that i would stick with languages from the countries currently represented in UWOL, either because someone is from that country, or a shooter traveled and shot there--that's an easy way to self-select and not overly clutter it...and those countries are...

United Kingdom
Canada
Norway
Sweden
South Africa
France
The Kingdom of Bhutan
Australia
Germany
United States

...and we're holding our breath this round for...Turkey and Taiwan, although I'm hoping that even if this round tortured them into the tank, that they'll be back....

and, now that i think about it, Gilles Debord shot guanacos in Chile, so we can add Spanish legitimately.

tell Rob and Kaku to sign up and make us something regionally interesting. (you, too, Greg!) Remember, it's only 3 minutes in 3 weeks, how hard can it be?

Heh. heh heh.

My thought was to appeal to the world in the future, and not have to redesign....

Hey Chris, it's all good--you poor UWOLers are probably subject to way more of my tortuous thinking-out-loud ruminations and seat-of-the-pants formulations than is actually necessary!

Now that I uploaded my entry, I can reply...

In China and Taiwan, the official language is Mandarin. So they both speak Mandarin. But in China they write simplified Chinese and in Taiwan they write traditional Chinese.
In Hong Kong, they write traditional Chinese but speak Cantonese.

My story? Wait for my book!
Well, I am French and I met a beautiful Taiwanese girl in France. We lived there together a couple of years then moved to Taiwan where we got married. I have been in Taiwan for almost 5 years now. But I still have so much to learn

If no native Japanese speaker get in here on time, my wife can help. She lived in Japan for a few years and has some contacts.

As international as this group is, I kind of like using the Latin version. That is rather universally acceptable, isn't it? I mean, everyone has to look it up? But it is relatively easy to do so?

Ok here goes kids.


"Ein byd ni, gweledigaeth chi"


Now to explain the pronounciation.

Ein = pain without the p. So in English it would be written "Ain"

byd = basically bid but extend the vowel so biiid

ni = thats right, the Knights who say ni or knee

gweledigaeth = hmmm, ok the gweled part, is phonetic with a hard g and the e's pronounced as you would in egg. The igaeth part would be pronounced ig (igloo) aeth (ice with a lisp).

chi = basically its a phelgmy sound, the i is an "ee" sound with the ch being the throat clearing bit.

So all together now,

"Ein byd ni, gweledigaeth chi."

or

"ain biiid knee, (g)weled-i-(g)-ithe *ch*eee"

(denotes hard g) *throat clearing noise*

If anyone is really that fussed on how to pronounce it I'll get an audio recording for you.

I'm sorting a recording out tonight.
