Frisian Internet Resources

Postby ILuvEire » 2009-01-12, 17:40

Here's some of the stuff I've found:

Frisian Portal: It has a great course, and tons of reading material in Frisian and other languages.

Omniglot: Frisian: It's got info about the orthography and writing system.

Web Page of Peter Meijes Tiersma: This guy has written an long informative article about the history of the Frisian language, and "Frisian Reference Grammar" (which he is selling for 20USD, but Amazon.com is selling it for 120USD).

Jag har ikke Skype. I would like one, but I have no mic. I spend my money on things like Frisian grammars. :P

You need to get a mic. :P

And what do your parents think of you studying so many languages? My mom thinks I need to find one and stick with it, and when I tell her about whatever language, she thinks something like "not again :roll: ".

:P

Ha, they encourage me. I drag them in with me, with the language learning month thing. I've roped in a family member into every language I've learned so far (Norwegian with my Dad, Hawaiian with my Grandma, Portuguese with my Mom).

Hey Dminor, what are some Frisian - Dutch/English/German printed dictionaries you can recommend, and that ship to the USA?

Afûk's bookstore is the best, but I don't know if they ship to the USA. In any case they have this, for example, which seems to be a nice book in English (if you don't see the description click on the English flag on the right). I myself use these (1, 2, description in Dutch or Frisian) and this one, which are Frisian-Dutch/Dutch-Frisian. There's more on the site. :)

It would be nice to have the D>F and F>D dictionaries, but I don't have that much money. :oops: :(
I might have to get the F>E one, but that would require half the total amount of money I have.

Tyler: Did you ever get the book?

[flag]sv[/flag] Finns det några bra resurser för det här språk? Utom länkarna som redan ges. Jag är intresserad av att lära mig frisiska, minst läser om det. Finns det några e-böcker osv. på internet som jag kan läsa?

Jag tror inte att det finns många andra resurser på internet (om jag hade funnit dem, så skulle jag ha satt länkarna här...). Om du vill lära dig frisiska med andra resurser bör du nog använda böcker... :hmm:

I just came across this 53-page Frisian course-book (in Dutch) for communication students. Looks interesting.

Leuk. Ik herken erg veel aan m'n eigen dialect, hoewel mijn dialect niet Fries is.
Hoofdstuk 4 van les 1 is bv geheel van toepassing op mijn regio, die onder het Nedersaksisch valt. En een groot gedeelte van de pers vnw's zijn gelijk.

ik besta ik bestean
jij bestaat do bestiest
hij bestaat hy bestiet
zij bestaat sy bestiet
het bestaat it bestiet
wij bestaan wy besteane
jullie bestaan jim/jimme besteane
zij bestaan sy besteane
u bestaat jo besteane

Mijn dialect, grotendeels Kornhorns, al woon ik 5km verderop, maar ben in Kornhorn opgegroeid en heb er nog steeds vrienden.:
ik bestoa
doe bestaist
hai bestait
sie bestait
wie bestoan
jim bestoan
sie bestoan
joe bestaist




En een groot gedeelte ken ik wel van vrienden die in Friestalige dorpen in de provincie Groningen wonen.

I just read that the "Dictionary of the Frisian language" (Wurdboek fan de Fryske taal) is now online. :D

WFT, ftw 8-) I mean, yes, that's very good news indeed. :D Too bad for those of us who can't understand Dutch though.
