Can anyone tell me, what is some good folk music from the Scandinavian area? I've found a couple Norwegian groups/bands and would like to find more from that general area. Also, does anyone know of an singers who sing in old German? :D
I remember having found on linguaphiles a link to a page that describes, numerically and in detail, the various levels of fluency. Does anyone have that? It's driving me nuts that I can't find it.
Hello all, hoping someone can help me with this. I work preparing for web publication audio interviews with Holocaust survivors. The interviews are conducted in English, but the interviewees often use foreign phrases, which we transcribe and, if possible, translate. While we have plenty of resources for translating various phrases from Hebrew/German/Polish/Hungarian/Yiddish, and so on, we cannot find a Romanized Russian-English dictionary. Because we have to transcribe as we hear the phrases we need to be able to look up the words as they would be written in the Roman alphabet. And because we have no way of looking up Russian words, we have to skip them entirely, making for some fairly large gaps in many of our interviews.
We don't have a Russian speaker in the office, and really need to be able to look up these phrases. So if anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd truly appreciate it.
I just ran across a folk song title... Bugeilior Gwenith Gwyn (Watching the White Wheat) and what came to me was the English word BEGUILE...
I suppose there's a ton of Welsh words that share origins with ME Middle English... but I delight when I find them...
That is all. You may now resume your weekend stroll through LJ. Cheers :)
[EDITED LATER: Thanks to the comments below I am corrected.... this is why I post here!]
