Language Lesson


Denmark wanted America to say this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQkvqJJvR9U because Danes love to make foreigners say it.

All the other Nordic countries joke that Danish sounds like Swedes talking with a potato or porridge in their mouths, while Danes joke that Swedes sound like drunk Danes, and Norwegians sound like drunk Danes singing. :XD:

I always thought Swedish sounds more like singing. And Norwegian sounds so flat. But I know that feeling, all Germans I met always said, Swiss-German sounds like having a throat disease. XD

They made German infiltrators say "Scheveningen" in WWII here in the Netherlands . If they pronounced it like Sheveningen (I have to use the English pronunciation here) the resistance knew they were Nazis.

Speaking of getting drunk and trying to pronounce foreign languages, there's a study showing that people pronounce words and sentences from languages they don't speak better when they're drunk.

Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Faroese all sound like trying to talk with a paralysed tongue to us Icelanders.
