    Awesome little site. Information is all too seldom laid out in so clean, simple and digestible a fashion.

    If only it also had mp3's of the various languages so that one might listen to them being spoken, that would be truly comprehensive!

    I should like to hear Frisian being spoken. Frans gave me a heap of links on Frisian, but I lost the email when my old PC died a sudden & violent death...

    Some Words Concerning Germanic Languages

    Although I'm not a master of the Linguistics, I've been tempted (just by meself ) to post something, which could be quite informative, yet understandable by the common/normal man (or woman )

    All languages mostly are related to each other, either by direct ancestral-ship, then by taking over certain modern terms (for example: modern English words like computer, PDA,...etc). Or because of souping up things (Like French words in Continental/Brittish-Isles Germanic languages)

    I thought OK. I know that all Germanic languages/ dialects are quite direct related to each other, let's test it

    I took some basic terms/ objects, that even a Germanic man/woman living around the Roman-Period would know.

    Made a short list (OK scrapping a lots of words) of the languages I speak, Yet containing the most basic words.

    Languages by me: "Frisian (Geef-Frysk), Dutch (Hoog-Nederlands), English (Brittish-English)",

    OK I speak a bit of German (3 yrs. school) but do not wage myself on writing it down .

    I hope some other 'Skadites' will post a sample of their 'mother tongue' here too. (I made a structure by numbers, so it would be easy to compare ).

    Just Copy / Past the 'English' post in MS-Word or other program (to keep things uncomplex ) And edit it towards your language, Then open a new thread, Copy / paste, ...etc
