But not Western Armenian?

I have to say the same for me. While I am kinda interested in Western Armenian, I'm much more interested in Eastern.

I'm interested in Western Armenian, too. I just arbitrarily decided to start with Eastern when I started learning the alphabet. I didn't exactly get very far, though. :lol:

I barely even know any Armenians! :| (And I'm not sure whether the one I did once know in person actually speaks it or not).
n8an wrote:I've really lost my ability to study languages. I just can't do it with any sense of concentration, commitment or regularity. It's such a shame. I miss the person I was who could just do it for days and hours and weeks on end.

I still wanderlust languages but the actual sitting down and doing it just doesn't happen anymore :bittercry:

How did this happen?

Between Mda and Gurnah, I'm getting kind of wanderlusty for African languages in general. Yesterday I was reading up about Pulaar and the Songhai languages.

I'm wanderlusting for Kannada here https://www.50languages.com/phrasebook/it/kn/. It has geminate like Italian and vowels at the end of (maybe almost all) the words (like Italian), and I like it.

Meu corretor está reclamando desse "ô" aí. Na Wikipédia tem "estoniano" também sem acento. Deve ser a reforma ortográfica. A vontade é mandar tudo pra puta que pariu, mas eu não sou de falar palavrão.

É, mas ali não são atos de fala literais, é um jogo. É igual se eu citar uma frase do filme Cidade de Deus. Ou de qualquer filme nacional.

A video on culture shock made you wanderlust for the language associated with the foreign culture? Well, that's a new twist on the concept of wanderlust! :D
