You can have "whether" without a verb in English, too, though, just in different contexts (e.g. "anyone can learn a language, whether old or young").

"Variedade linguística" equivale a "em um relacionamento".

Ahá, eu ia falar isso, mas esqueci do "whether". Não sei se por cansaço ou por alzheimer.

Drifting back into Irish. Partly time of year, partly the ripple of interest here. I'm considering looking at options for immersion courses in Ireland, since that's the only way I'd ever get conversational.

The "galego-asturiano" of Eo-Nava is AFAIK also known as a fala.

So you're thinking of moving to Ireland?

My understand is that they offer courses lasting a week or two, so it would be a kind of working vacation.

Do these immersion courses differ based on the area and thus Irish dialect? I remember reading the stuff on księżyc's thread about the different Irish dialects. If the courses differ, which dialect would you focus on?

Knowing linguoboy, I would venture a guess that he'd want to learn Munster Irish.

Which will ensure that we keep a safe distance even if I happened to be in Ireland at the same time. ;)

(Not sure yet if I'll be going this year, though.)

The Brazilian series I've started watching happens to be subtitled into Serbo-Croatian (which is not unusual, since Portuguese-language productions are known to be popular in Croatia), and it's making me wanderlust badly for the language. Pray for me (I mean that idiomatically, I can guarantee it…) that I don't give in!

If anything, I'd probably bend to my wanderlust if I watched it.

That's why I apologized: for keeping you from avoiding your wanderlust, albeit unintentionally. :lol:

Do excuse me then. I sometimes have legitimate trouble distinguishing sarcasm, even though I can be pretty sarcastic myself. :para:

I didn't realize Vijay was being sarcastic either. I'm still confused by how he kept you from avoiding your wanderlust.

Well, okay, I didn't really keep him from avoiding his wanderlust, but the potential exists. :whistle: He said he was wanderlusting for Serbian on this thread. I had posted a video from The Death of Yugoslavia, which has lots of Serbian in it, on the very same thread. If he watches it, he'll just wanderlust for Serbian even harder. :lol:

But see I would think of that as you're adding to or encouraging his wanderlust, not that you're (potentially) keeping him from avoiding his wanderlust. Fuck, never mind. I just got that! See, the double negative confused me. I'm pretty sure I've shared about that before, but damn why can't English speakers just use a positively-worded sentence instead of two negative concepts! :hmm: :evil: :evil:

Because we just can't not use double negatives. :P
