Well, Shakespeare appears to inflect the name 'Claudius' at one point in Hamlet

Sailors, my lord, they say; I saw them not.
They were given me by Claudio. He receiv’d them


I believe that is the ablative singular of 'Claudius'. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Well, you say in English "I am in Helsinki" for example... not "I am Helsingissä".

And personally, I never say "I am from Reykjavíkur" but I would say " I am from Reykjavík".

Skinhead O'Connor? Is she still active in the music industry?
But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.

I get the same feelings from Viking Metal - specifically Bathory, which has a very ... I can't even explain the emotion with words.

If you include the word in a sentence in English, I don´t understand why you use the accusative form. If the whole stuff was in Icelandic, I would understand but here... ?


Please don't correct that. That was just annoying. If I say the word íslenska and it's not the subject, I'll naturally put it in another case. And you wouldn't say from reykjavíkur because you don't say that in Icelandic either, just like you say 'minä olen Helsingis'.

Erm, isn't it "Ég er frá Reykjav­ík" --- I am from Reykjav­ík.

"Reykjav­íkur" is the genitive singular. ^^ Like...

"Ég fer til Reykjavíkur."

Of course you know this already, but honestly...is it worth it nipnicking that? ;)

I think you are the most patronizing person on Unilang and everytime I read your posts I feel you are just annoying also. So that´s fine.
I know my sentences were wrong, but it doesn´t matter, you understood my point, Egein. In Icelandic, you decline words, but not in English. Being from Québec, I mean so-called "bilingual", you should know that. We can discuss it in private if you want, but please don´t be that patronizing. I didn´t mean to be "annoying" and you had no right to tell me I was.

Mercedes Sosa, what a voice!

There are several songs that touch me really really deep. I think that sometimes you don't need to know the language to understand what do they sing about...


The first is just like a thunder, like electricity, and if you know the Polish language, you will really understand why. What a voice! :praise:
Please listen to this song! I just adore it!
Hanna Banaszak: Samba na rozstanie
http://andante.wrzuta.pl/audio/aqcmiynQZ5/hanna_banaszak_-_samba_przed_rozstaniem


The second song that goes diectly to my heart could be perhaps banal but oh err... I never liked this woman as a person but I must admit sincerely, I like her version much much better than when Wael sings alone...
Elissa & Wael: Omri Kello
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6HeUJXoDnY


The third one would be my beloved Ismael. His songs are rarely sad, but always wakes up many feelings inside me... Or is it becaue of many important moments that I shared with this song?
Ismael Serrano: Cobertura: 95% del territorio nacional
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joO5PRnPxjw


The fourth that comes now to my head, well that one helped me a lot to survive a very critical moment of my life. Not the kind of music that I like but it was like my first aid during this spring time...
Mezzo: Sacrum
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GZB-Qnsqzs


And the awesome algerian woman, Souad Massi (too bad this is just a live version... but still great)
Souad Massi: Deb
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb5aiGYJtxY


And this angel voice... I was actually really waiting for someone to come back to me while listening to this angelical music... But at the beginning I was sure that portuguese houver is just spanish llover so it means something like "even if it rains"... :lol:
Madredeus: Haja o que houver
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjYQvXAv_9Y


The last one is from Galicia. Some other song of this band moves me much more but I could find only this one, but also the only thinkg I can say is "impressioning"...
Luar na Lubre - Tu gitana

I reacted to a rather patronizing mistake, is what I did.

And using bilingualism in my daily life does bring declensions and language patterns into the other languages.

Sorry if I was unpleasent. It was a horrible day.

I totally agree with Zaduma ....
.... one of my favourite song is: Mor ve Ötesi - Küçük Sevgilim (My little lover) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bF1CG-0FZM

My little darling,
What have you done to me…
You broke my heart for several times
They dont know, they don't hear
They just look to my face like u dont exist
Like we are a lie.

My little darling,
What have you done to me…
You broke my heart for several times
They don’t know, they don’t know
They slap to my face
Like u don't exist,
Like we are a lie.

......and another one is: Mor Ve Otesi - Bir derdim Var (I have a problem) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gunZOLOcvsw

I have a problem/trouble

I have a trouble, I can’t have it inside me anymore
If I go, to where? If I stay, it helps to what?
I couldn’t ever explain, they have never understood

Why is everybody enemies? x2
We forgot all of it/them, the breathe of the soul
Don’t come near me, you’re different, and so am I

I have a trouble, I can’t have it inside me anymore
If I go, to where? If I stay, it helps to what?
I couldn’t ever explain, they have never understood

Look, this is the last stage, there’s no plays after this
There’s no light, there isn’t anything, not, not, not…
I have a trouble, I can’t have it inside me anymore.

And some others: Andrius Mamontovas - Geltona Žalia Raudona (anime version) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBSpNkzuQKs&feature=related
Jurga - Sandman's child http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-MEN794J-k

Sounds beautiful.

I think it'd be quicker to make a list of songs that DON'T move me :lol: Especially lately. I've gone through weeks of not listening to music (at least not from my collection) because it all moved me too much :lol:

A Lavandeira da Noite - a beautiful song that I absolutely adore

Fear a Bhata A song I learnt as a child and absolutely love

Down by the Sally Gardens

Cànan nan Gàidheal I love this song, it is such a strong and moving song...

Silver Dagger

Mama ana ahabak My mother died 5 months after I moved away from home, when I was 19, and my sisters were 18 and 13 - this song always makes me cry...

The Prayer Same reason as Mama ana ahabak - this song was played at my mother's funeral so it means a lot to me...

Since this thread was bumped, I'll update mine :)

This is the song I cannot think about, or I will get sad. I had to type it's name in youtube and listen to about 2 seconds to make sure it was the right one. That was more than long enough. I purposefully try not to think about it, because i believe if i listen to it too often, it will loose some of it's meaning. When somebody I love dies, this is the song I will play to get over the pain, and if I die, I hope this song is performed at my funeral. It is the most powerful song I know:

We're walking in the air - from the play "The Snowman"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aR1Ln-ctn5E
^note i will never mention this song by name again on this forum

More recently: VnV Nation's Forsaken (Live with Vocals). I get a "roar" out of it, it's inspiring, and like my other favorite by the same band, Savior (Vox), no matter how down and depressed I am, it'll give me hope and raise me up.

Forsaken (with lyrics) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k23ZewdVVSI
Savior (vox) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DK0LYOq2iGI

And then, there is the other that doesn't lift me, so much as helps me move on with anything. It doesn't cheer me, it just tells me "get off the floor, on your feet, and go".
Polyushka Polye (many styles by many artists, but this version especially): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8YWyNHmVgQ
"and now every toilet will burn to ashes!""
