Language is great, isn't it? The English Language in particular is an impressive, ever changing beast which wraps itself around the culture of the time and absorbs words and rules as it goes.

So I''ve devoted a thread to Words and Language. Feel free to add questions, answers, rants, interesting facts etc.

Are words onomatopoeic because someone thought of the word for the sound or just by chance?

It seems to get more complicated when a word is a rough translation from another language (usually Germanic or Latin based).

I speak French and a bit of Spanish but I'm not artistic. Suppose it's because I'm good at remembering stuff that the languages has stuck in my mind.

Does that mean everyone in the Netherlands is artistic to some extent?

I draw, paint, sculpt, design 3D virtual models, and I have enough of a command of the English language to have written a book...


Can't really speak any other languages though, apart from Jibberish if you believe the wife...

I can speak French and a bit of Spanish, German and Italian. I also have a degree in Graphic Design. Fit the profile?

This is deserving of a reply, unfortunately I'm far too much of a d*****s to be able to contribute anything. My talent is numbers, I've always been useless with language.

Actually I will say something.
