I remember a post a few weeks ago about some of the Korean used on Lost, but I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find actual transcriptions of the Korean dialogue, preferably both in Hangul and Latin script (though either or is fine at this point too).
I've Googled til I can Google no more - all I find are the translations into English.
And for that matter, while we're on the subject of Lost - Korean is the non-English language that gets the most play on the show, but I also wouldn't mind transcriptions of the other languages used on the show, such as Arabic.
I'm hoping that the example of Lost can help make modern television not afraid to be multilingual in nature, which I'm sure is something that all of us linguaphiles would enjoy :)
Thanks for any help!
There is an old arabic tango written by Farid El Atrash "Ya zahratan fi khayali". Is there anybody who knows this song and can write its lyrics in English transliteration or give a link to it?
Did any other tangos in Arabic language ever exist?
i have a question about the origin of a certain word....the word is "tiburón" (which is clearly not a word in english, but the english translation is "shark"). anyone know where either the english or the spanish of this originated?
i heard somewhere that the spanish version originated from guarani, the native language of my country (paraguay). just curious!
So I found myself saying the words "I googled x" today, and that got me wondering . . .
Just how prevalent is this new verb? Is its use limited to the computer-savvy? Is its use limited to English speakers? (i.e. do Germans say 'ich googled x'?). Also, if/when you use 'google' as a verb, are you meaning that you used the search engine Google specifically, or simply that you looked something up?
Does this interest anyone besides me? ;)
Hello! I'm hoping to try to learn conversational Armenian, to speak to my family members who also know Armenian. Unfortunately, these family members aren't ones I see often enough to just ask them to teach me; so I'm hoping to learn from books, websites, and (if they're affordable) tapes/CDs. But I haven't been having a whole lot of luck finding good Armenian websites, books, or anything, really.
As to which Armenian I'd like to learn, I guess both eventually. My grandmere's family speaks Eastern Armenian; my grandpere's, Western. My father suggested I learn Western Armenian, as it's supposedly the more modern.
If any of you have any suggestions, please let me know. Taking a college class isn't an option; the local community colleges don't offer it and they're all I can drive myself to. I currently own "Western Armenian Dictionary & Phrasebook: Armenian-English/English-Armenian (Hippocrene Dictionary and Phrasebook)", which is definitely geared towards travelers; and have borrowed Gulian's "Elementary Modern Armenian" from inter-library loan, which I'm having trouble following. I think I'd like to become comfortable with the sounds, cases, and vocabulary before having to deal with a new alphabet.
