the word LOVE in Georgian

Postby barb851 » 2009-03-27, 8:04

Hi everybody!

Can somebody help me and translate the word LOVE?

The meaning for the word should be my love for my family, for my friends, for my animals, for my town, just for everything which is really important in my life.

In english its just LOVE!

Regards.
Barbara

1. Why don't you get the tattoo in English if the English meaning is so important to you? (Or in German - would you get a tattoo saying "Liebe"? If not, that's what your "beautiful foreign script tattoo will look like to natives of that language.)
2. If you don't like the look of the Latin alphabet, why don't you invent your own script?
3. Why would you engrave symbols of a culture you don't know anything about (or so I assume) into your body?
4. In how many different scripts do you want that word written on your body?

Sorry, but the fact that you post this in all "exotic script" forums shows how random your choice seems to be...

Well, I guess there'll be another more helpful person around here who knows some Georgian.

No. It's not.

I dont want the word LOVE oder LIEBE on my body!


Then WHY would you want it in another language?
You see, things that seem stupid to you in your own language don't stop being stupid just because you translate them into a language you don't understand.

Hi linguaholic

I dont mean the WORD Love is always the same!
I mean the feeling!! I know that there are different meanings for the word like
motherlove, love erotic... etc...
but the feeling is the same in the hole world!

I just need the translations!

I dont want the word LOVE or LIEBE on my body, because then everybody can read and see it!
I want a meaning which is just for me and my love in my life!

Has it occured to you that there might be languages who don't have that one word because to them these different kinds of love are totally different things?

It's not even interchangeable between two languages as close as German and English. (In German, as you most probably know, you wouldn't tell a friend "Ich liebe dich", while in English "I love you" is a pretty normal thing to say - as far as I know.)

I dont want the word LOVE or LIEBE on my body, because then everybody can read and see it!

Of course it is your choice, I'm just trying to understand:
1. If it is so secret, why do you want to write it on your body? I thought tattoos were there to be seen?
2. Why don't you make up your own script?

Have you ever concidered, that English also can be written so that people don't realize what language it is, for example:

Hi Sol Invictus

Thank you for your help.

Yes that looks realy good...
I know what you mean but... hmmm thats not a language...
I like different languages...
If it is really a huge problem to translate the word I will find an other
solution... but I like it more in an other language!

That does the signs mean in english? I cant read them! :-)

Turn your head right, each character is a word in English, it is "I have a dream" speach by Martin Luther King

No, it is not! Linguaholic had a great example with German - the feeling is not the same in all languages. I don't know if there is a general word for "love" in Georgian. Maybe you think you're getting a word that means love for your family, but it actually means "erotic sexual love." If you don't want other people to be able to read it, then how do you know you won't meet Georgians (or Indians, Arabs, Kurds, etc.) in Switzerland? Do they not count? I guess you don't consider people from other countries to be human, since the only people that count are people that speak your language. These other cultures are just sources for pretty tattoos for you, and you don't care to learn anything about their culture, and you want your tattoos to be "secret" but you don't care that people from those countries can read it, since they're not really people to you! Sounds pretty racist to me!

If you want it to be a secret, why not write it in your own made-up language or script? Why not write it in Braille, or Morse code, or something like that?

Now, eskandar, assuming racism here goes a bit far I think. I'd rather call it thoughtlessness.

I love the idea of a "tattoo" in Braille. Aren't there piercings that are under the skin only? You could write "love" in little bumps. :lol:

It feels like racism to me, because I've encountered this kind of thing so many times before. Read my comments to Renata in the Devanagari thread and maybe you'll see what I mean.

Hmm, it dosen't hurt to tell people how natives might feel about this, all these threads start to look more like I want something exotic, not love is important to me, but I want to keep it a bit secret

Hey Barb851,

Love in Georgian is expressed also with one word, which is:

სიყვარული
:yep:

if you want to have a tattoo in some exotic language, i don't see any reason, why not. :)
If you really want something in life you have to work for it. Now quiet, they're about to announce the lottery numbers. (H.S.)
