I've finally moved back to Portuguese again! Finally I get a bit of a break from all these study groups. :P

You just can't stand the fact that Vijay might join a study group that won't include you! :D :P

1. on, ona, ono chce
oni, one chcą

2. inne języki (kobiety, koty, przedmioty, dzieci)
inni mężczyźni (ludzie, Polacy, bogowie)

3. chieć + dopełniacz

I'm not certain, but I think that może would be better here than chyba; the latter suggests a higher probability, that you think that that something is probably true. As I understand it you were trying to put into doubt what dEhiN was saying, so może might make more sense.

I'll have you know, young man, that George Van Driem is an intellectual rival of one of the reviewers of my qualifying paper! :hmpf:

(Claus Peter Zoller happens to have done some work on Romani, so he reviewed it, but he also does work on some Indo-Aryan languages. Van Driem once accused him of faking his data and generally being a con man, then Zoller accused him of faking his data. It's probably worth knowing that both people are kind of controversial as a result).

But sure, I'm game if you are! :D

EDIT: Although while I'm waiting, I'll be going back to doing Portuguese.

That's interesting. :lol:

And I've had his textbook siting on my shelf for far too long. I even remember convincing my grandmother to buy it. :P

Point being, I really should get around to using it. Let me just see how this week goes with German, Polish and Irish.

As for Sorbian, I think I'd like to wait a little bit. Not too long, but I'd like to at least get a bit further with German first. If that's ok.

There's no hurry to use it, though, of course. :) And yes, definitely see how things go especially with German and Polish!

How dare you focus on your focus languages! :silly:

Yep, Tibetan grabs me more and I'm more familiar with it.

Poor, poor Dzongkha..... :doggy:

So, are we settling on Tibetan then? If so, which dialect? I have stuff for Ü-tsang and Amdo.

EDIT: Unless of course Mongolian grabs you even more. :P EDIT2: Meh, even I'm more interested in a Bodish language. :lol: I have to say, I'd love to do Dzongkha, but I'm concerned about learning to be able to pronounce it from the Uchen script. (That's not to say I couldn't easily be talked into a dialect of Tibetan though. :whistle: :P )

Sure, as long as you still want to do it :twisted:

Ü-tsang because all I know is a bit of Standard/Lhasa Tibetan.

Still doing Portuguese

Fine. :hmpf:
I'll settle for Tibetan first, and depending on how well we stick to it we'll do Dzongkha later.

I'm tempted to try using Fluent Tibetan. Thoughts?

I have Learning Practical Tibetan in print form, but that doesn't have lessons per se; it's more like a phrasebook. Maybe I can try Fluent Tibetan, again if we stick with Tibetan.

Or if you like we can do Dzongkha instead. You know I'm not exactly picky with languages. :P
