Introductionary post. Because it's custom, isn't it?

Hallo Leute!

I've floated over from howdoyousay so if this post sounds familiar, don't mind me. I hate intro-posts with a passion, but still. XD

There isn't actually a lot you need to know about me, safe from that I'm a language nerd that likes to travel lots and far and has a habit of picking up words, phrases and languages on the go.

I'm fluent in German (my mother tongue) and its various dialects, as well as in English. I *used* to be fluent in French as well, but lacking practice ate my vocabulary it seems. I'm also able to understand a lot of stuff in Dutch.
Then I know quite a bit of Italian and Spanish and I study Latin at the U as a main subject.
And where's Latin, there's Ancient Greek as well in Germany, so I'm currently taking that as well. (Am not very good at it yet, though.)
And last but not least I'm also taking Japanese additionally to my studies, because it is fun and refreshingly different compared to all the European languages.


I'm fascinated by words. I also have a 'sweet tooth' for neologisms and the variations of speech on the Internet, emoticons, etymology and morphology. (My second subject at the U is History...)

And that's all. *waves shyly at the audience*

Edit: After that nice conversation with muckefuck I've decided to change the (somewhat offensive) word in question. Don't nitpick, please? (I'm still thinking about it.)

    Do you know how to write pinyin on the computer with the correct tone marks? When I google it, I find a lot of explanations of how to write Chinese…
