Yeah, I just read about that today. It was disgusting and extremely stupid. I'm disappointed in them for apologizing for the kid doing something good.

Oh, also, it sounds like he kind of anticipated this reaction beforehand. Idk that's just so sad to me somehow. :(

Also lol on the picture of the car windshield on those comments from Twitter, you almost can't see the "H" at the end of "English," so it looks like "We Live In AMERICA SPEAK ENGLIS." :lol:

At the risk of falling prey to the etymological fallacy, that's right: We live in a country whose name is a Latinised version of an Italian name derived from Teutonic. Naturally we should all speak English.

:lol: Hmm, what's Teutonic, anyway?

Oh, and of course, we live in a country where there have been tons of languages spoken since before Europeans had anything to do with it. Naturally we should all speak English. :ohwell: :lol:

I'm not precisely sure which West Germanic variety Amerigo derives from. Could be Old High German or Old Frankish, could be Langobardic. I don't think an East Germanic variety like Gothic is a possibility.

Yeah, there's that to. As I like to say, "ðe mąžą ðalįį škǫštapi tą ie špižǫǫ" ("If you want to live here, learn the language").

Thanks! :)

Kusunda is a language isolate spoken in Nepal but very close to being extinct. Wikipedia and Ethnologue claim that there are three native speakers left, but the maker of this video seems to be saying that there is only one native speaker left named Gyani Maya Sen. She is the person who is featured in this video speaking Kusunda (and Nepali to the interpreter):

Wait, you haven't? :? I thought you had. :lol:

Oh, BTW, there are tons of living language isolates in the Amazon. :P I think there are quite a few in Australia and Papua New Guinea, too.

Language isolates in Europe and Asia (and Africa?), because they're not nearly as common there :P
