Welcome. Quick messages/chats but this area is emptied from time to time so nothing permanent here!!
sekar: Old black and white movies .... absence of 3D and that computer graphics ! Apr 25, 2015 21:14:01 GMT
Rabbit: It is indeed an old English expression but rarely used now. Post takes some time to get there doesn't it? Problem is, I had to write the address in English which isn't great for your end. Apr 25, 2015 21:19:49 GMT
Rabbit: if I had written it in Russian, it would still be left in our post office!!! Apr 25, 2015 21:20:15 GMT
sekar: Surely and definitely :D Apr 25, 2015 21:21:33 GMT
sekar: In Russian - "Bog Off" resembles to modern "отвали!" :) How it could translate Google .... Apr 25, 2015 21:23:09 GMT
sekar: English vocabulary many times left me amazed as it has so much synonyms . Apr 25, 2015 21:26:17 GMT
sekar: Russian language has relatively small vocabulary. Apr 25, 2015 21:28:02 GMT
Rabbit: Yes. english does,Also, each synonym has a different 'strength' very often, so that for non English speakers, it can be quite confusing. 'Let me be' would be said by a victim, who is possibly weak ... A lady? 'Bog off' is aggressive. There are others too! Apr 25, 2015 21:29:33 GMT *
Rabbit: Russian is pretty direct and is something that many English speakers find hard to identify with. Apr 25, 2015 21:31:20 GMT
Rabbit: same with some other Europen languages too, like German and (sorry Frans) Dutch. Quite direct languages that can seem offensive to English when no offense is meant. Apr 25, 2015 21:32:12 GMT *
sekar: Yes, that's it ! Direct using of words. Old Russian vocabulary from XIX century was more rich i suppose but we are not talking in such way now. Same for English i tried to read Robin Hood it was a real challenge ! Apr 25, 2015 21:42:34 GMT
elysion: The same language can also be used in different ways. Americans don't use English in the same way as Brits do for example. The difference between German and Swiss-German is even bigger IMHO. Apr 25, 2015 21:51:29 GMT
sekar: There are a lot of dialects in Germany language in English so we need to use different selectors en-gb en-nz and so on .... Apr 25, 2015 22:22:31 GMT
solrighal: Scots don't use English the same way 'Brits' do either. Apr 26, 2015 0:14:58 GMT
solrighal: I'm quite active in another online field & if I wrote here as I do there none of you would understand a thing I say. Apr 26, 2015 0:15:48 GMT
Rabbit: Hi Christian. Yes that is very true. There are quite often misundertandings both in language and attitudes between Americans and English. Bit like Husbands and wives!! ;) Apr 26, 2015 5:43:38 GMT
Rabbit: No one understands a Scot! ;) Apr 26, 2015 7:03:29 GMT
ronzo56: Wait. Americans use English? Naw pardners, we use the first real language American!! And comes in at least 7 different varieties so half the time we don't understand each other! You saying there's other languages too?? Well I'll be! Apr 26, 2015 8:43:22 GMT
solrighal: 7 Ron? Are you sure? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indigenous_languages_of_the_Americas#North_America Apr 26, 2015 9:12:45 GMT *
Rabbit: i'm not sure that Americans really know what they speak. ;) Apr 26, 2015 13:03:15 GMT *
