Similarities between Languages
« on: October 03, 2013, 06:47:20 pm »
Well, I just read some nice stuff about the languages, and I think, it's very interesting how similar our languages are.
(And I miss such a thread here :P)


(Meh, I can't find a romanic version....)

Nice comparison, but languages are similar only if you carefully select words for comparison. For example words like sklep in Czech/Polish or stávka in Czech/Slovak are completely different things

Kezemplltxe. :)
You will find a lots of word wich are completly different, but if you would compare the most used words you speak, you may will see similarities.
E.g. German Baum English Tree

This shouldn't be a surprise.  Old English has its roots in Old (High) German and Norse prior to the Norman Invasion (1066AD) into Britain.  Then much Norman, Dutch, and Danish influence mixed into the English language. 

The biggest shift in English vowels (and probably pronunciations) occurring in the 15thC particularly during the time of the War of the Roses with the significant interactions between Britain, France, and Burgundy (primarily Netherlands / "lowlands").

History of the English language
Great Vowel Shift

BTW:
That "sunu" in the tables, remindes me hard to Na'vi! ;D
