naughty naughty coolaid! 'sides that irish :p

That phrase is the same in both Irish and Scottish Gaelic as far as I know. The Scottish side of my family use it that way.

I can also say "I love you" and "I love cookies" in Gaelic. I just know very random phrases that I'd never really need in real life. :p

Anywaaay, I speak English and French, I can understand some Italian since it's similar to French, and I can understand/speak little German.

Plattdütsch (translates as "Low German" :confused:),

Thats just what we call it in English, Low German and High German.

I speak English fluently (native language) and I am conversational in Spanish but I am still only a beginner. I also know enough Latin that if I hear it I can usually know what it means or get the gist of it but I can't speak it very well, I only took a year of it then the little bits and pieces I pick up from the Latin Mass I go to.

Its Albanian isnt it?

CroftGameGirl
21-07-09, 11:27
Kosovan is what's spoken in Kosovo, you can say it branched off of Albanian, as there are many similar words, grammer, phrases etc. They speak Albanian in Albania but then again there are many Albanians in Kosovo and visa verca so it's mixed in both countries. I'd explain more but it goes into a different topic :) :P

Wiki - Kosovo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kosovo#Languages) This would suggest its still officially listed as Albanian language with Serbian also listed as an official language.. % of population split is around 90% Albanian and just under 10% Serbian..

Its completely the sam as albanian, just with another dialect, two languages that are spoken in Kosovo and Metohija are Serbian and Albanian, I beleve that no one from side can teach me facts about my country... :) And the reason why there is no kosovan language is because there you have serbs and albanian immigrants, so like I said, there is albanian and serbian there...

Im not talking about the illegal independence, Im not interested to disscus politics...Im just stating facts, there is Serbian in Kosovo and Metohija, and Albanian because albanians immigrated there in the beggining of 20th centery :)

CroftGameGirl
21-07-09, 11:51
True, but this is what I know: Kosovo was a state of Albania and then they split (again for different reasons) and then the language was changed slightly. That's what I know :o There is actually a small part of Albania where they speak more like Kosovans.
EDIT: Is anyone else getting that funny Albanian ad at the top? :vlol:

Who thought you that!!?? :hea:
Thats the biggest lie ever!
Kosovo was a name for a field, a large plain, it was located in Rashka the Serbian medievil kingdom, from a small teritory of Kosovo over generations it has developed, from there Car Dushan expaned the state all the way to the coasts of Greece, and the nation of Albania didnt even exist then, then Turks came, there was a battle for Serbian empire in Kosovo polje http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Kosovo, we lost, Turks concured the Blakans, we were under their rule for 500 years what downgraded us alot, in Medievil times Serbia was one of the most upcoming empires, whit strong economy, but after turks concured us we stoped, and finaly in the 19th century we started with rebelions, Turkey was very weak than, and we by the middle of 19th centery we were free... Than start the world wars, and than comes Yugoslavia....Albanian Kosovo never existed in history...

:) Im sorry if I was rude anywhere, but its just annoys me how lies are told...:)

Definitely!
If it's a language you learn at school, it just seems boring, and not particularly exciting. Although I can learn by just looking through lists of words (did for latin), it's not an interesting way to learn.
