Thank you very much!
Yes, I remembered 1188, checked it but it doesn't appear normally and couldn't see the English function at the edge and otherwise my Latvian was too limited to be able to find the bus-schedules. :|
Autoosta is very good.
Yes, I had the same idea, if it was only up to me, I would most likely stop in Valmiera, Césis and Sigulda too, but I don't want to force any of my travel-partners into too much they don't want to do.
We have many plans regarding Latvia.
Only if the weather wasn't so bad already now. It is like the end of October at home. :( We leave some places for "pavasaris" for sure.

Yeah, what we have here isn't typical September weather - for me because it has been too cloudy, for Estonians, I heard, it's too warm :) The thing is that people go to Sigulda now, to see autumn leaves, not in Spring

Valmiera is the brother city of Kecskemét or on the way to become.
And "Man", you're in Latvia then! Besides it is a city of a long history, it is already a pleasure to walk in the main streets of such a place. At least for a Hungarian (and German, and Argentinian, yeah :) ).

Probably it would be better to say: Valmiera is the SISTER city of ...

Tās ir sadraudzības pilsētas. Un, piemēram, Rīgai ir sadraudzības attiecības ar Tallinu, Viļņu, Minsku, Maskavu un citām pilsētām.

Sorry, in my language we say testvérváros and it means both brother and sister, but if you want it means only each of them, however you like, we don't make a problem of genders. So, excuse me in advance for such mistakes, I didn't know whether English considers cities as females or males (which is absolutely pointless for me :D)

Hello Levo!

There is no reason to apologize :) ... this forum is intended to share knowledge...
...for example now I know that in your language there is no grammaticalc gender!

Sveiki!
"Siil udus" - This is how my Estonian housemate called the cartoon in Estonian. As he described it, I remembered one cartoon I saw in Latvian once: Ezītis miglā
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6_UdeS0V2U
Is it Russian, or Latvian?
Kas ir "Ieskaņota"?

It is the same cartoon and he told me that according to him, this is the best cartoon made in the 20. century. :)

ieskaņot... :hmm:

ieskaņot dziesmu = to record a/the song

bet laikam ir arī...

ieskaņot filmu = to add the sountrack to a/the film

This is the screenshot from the Colloquial Latvian book.

I wonder does the letter 'ğ' exist in the Latvian alphabet? Shouldn't it be 'ģ' instead? :roll:

Thanks! :)

Sveiks Sennaheribs !

Have you noticed that the alleged 35 letters of the Latvian alphabet are ... 34 ??!!

Actually the letters of the Latvian alphabet are 33. DZ is a digraph and it is rightly not considered a "letter".

The 11th letter is "ģ". Probably they had not that special character...

Why...Not Latvian?

As far as I know IESKAŅOTA is the past participle (passive; feminine and singular) of the verb IESKAŅOT.

So for example when talking of a Latvian film

FILMA IESKAŅOTA RĪGĀ could mean that a soundtrack (dialogs, music, etc. etc.) was added to the film in Riga, while

FILMA IESKAŅOTA ANGĻU VALODĀ could mean that the film was dubbed in English...

Well...if that is the beginning then one cannot expect much from that book, but of course
...never say never...

...in any case if you are really interested in Latvian language a good (practical) grammar is:

A GRAMMAR OF MODERN LATVIAN (T. G. Fennell, H. Gelsen)

Sveiki!
I would like to ask you, if the woman in this page pronounces Latvian correctly?
http://www.goethe-verlag.com/book2/HU/HULV/HULV005.HTM
Just because I thought that in Latvian the stress is on the first sylabelle despite of a few exceptions (expressions, vis+..., etc.), but at this page almost all words longer than 2 sylabelles are pronounced with stress on a different sylabelle.
Paldies!

Hi Levo

Her pronunciation is flawless and she stressed all the correct syllables. But her intonation (I hope it's the right term) is a bit over the top, it's how announcements on trains and buses sound but no one normally speaks like that unless they are asked to cite a poem by their Latvian teacher.
