  • To native French speakers or those otherwise proficient in French- why are these different?

    To my understanding, "Je comprends pas" And "Je ne comprends pas" And "Je ne comprends" Mean the same. So, am I correct? What exactly does pas mean? Can someone explain to me the differences? Thank you very much

  • Why does my mother pronounce yakisoba as yak-uh-so-bee rather than ya-kee-so-bah? It's wrong to the Japanese language, no?

    Best answer: Your pronunciation is certainly truer than your mother's, but I bet you stress one of the syllables. Japanese does not. Japanese also has pitch accent. English does not. Many wrong pronunciations become standard over time, sake - is usually pronounced in English as: SAH-kee, instead of sah-keh (where -eh... show more
    Best answer: Your pronunciation is certainly truer than your mother's, but I bet you stress one of the syllables. Japanese does not. Japanese also has pitch accent. English does not.

    Many wrong pronunciations become standard over time,

    sake - is usually pronounced in English as: SAH-kee, instead of sah-keh (where -eh is the e of bet).

    lingerie - is pronounced in English nothing like it is spelled, in English or French. It is very different from the correct French and is not obvious from English pronunciation rules either.


    France, should be pronounced: frahNs, where ahN is a single nasal vowel, the N is not pronounced as an N, and the S is the same as the C is pronounced in English in that word).

    tsunami, in English is: soo-NAH-mi. In Japanese, its: tsoo-nah-mee, but the OO is not the exact same sound as in English. The lips are less rounded. Each syllable is pronounced for the same length of time. Most people pronounce the T the first time they see the word, but are told it's wrong (but actually correct in Japanese).

    Gesundheit. (often something like: GOO-zuhn-tight, in English. Pronunciations vary). In German: guh-ZOON-tight)

    Languages don't always make sense. Sometimes the wrong pronunciations seem reasonable, because they follow English pronunciation rules; Sometimes they seem wacky.

    one last example: Worcestershire sauce. Does not follow English phonetics. (I will not attempt to transcribe it. Hopefully you know the correct pronunciation).

  • In Spanish, are V's pronounced as V's or B's?

    My teacher (who is a Spanish immigrant), when I asked, told me that they pronounce their V's as B's, but upon hearing several other Spanish people speak the language, they pronounce their V's as V's. Do they do both?

  • 'reckon with' vs 'deal with' ? are they the same or not?

    Best answer: Largely it is a matter of degree and elegance. Yes, Reckon with and Deal with have the same meaning. But, taking it a bit to the extreme: Paint-By-Numbers is Dealing with painting a picture. A Rembrandt is Reckoning with painting that picture. There are something around 400,000 words in the English language,... show more
    Best answer: Largely it is a matter of degree and elegance. Yes, Reckon with and Deal with have the same meaning. But, taking it a bit to the extreme:

    Paint-By-Numbers is Dealing with painting a picture.
    A Rembrandt is Reckoning with painting that picture.

    There are something around 400,000 words in the English language, and with compounds and derivatives, that number increases to very nearly 1,000,000. Lots of nuances are possible for those who practice the art of writing (or speaking). Much as the differences between food cooked with spices and food cooked without spices.

  • I taught myself to think in both Imperial and Metric measuring systems, is this a bit like learning a second language?

    I prefer Imperial, just saying. I've been trying to learn German, I know a little bit, but not enough to hold even a basic conversation.
