I've been meaning to do a language thread, but I thought it would be more interesting if it includes comfy-posting about different parts of the world.
Feel free to share the -best- resources to learn your language or others that you may be aware of!

I know its hard to not get political but please try to keep it civil, or at most do some friendly banter.

I'm from a country that used to belong to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, my main language is Español, and some tidbits of guaraní/portuguese.

However I'm interested in japanese[0] and russian, and of course, I would like to improve my english.

> anything in particular though
I barely understand it but 《铡美案》is perhaps one of my favourite operas so far. As for anime, my unsolicited opinion is that japanese anime is generally more interesting and diverse, maybe that's because I like horror and mystery more which don't seem to be as well addressed in Chinese anime. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places though…
That said, I'm a sucker for "daily life of immortal king" and "the king's avatar."

> didn't know the term "Whorfianism" for it though.

Philisophy of Language is interesting. You'll run into hard Whorfianism a lot when you read Orwell's "1984" and "Faranheight 451." Trotsky also talks a bit about it, language parsing, theory more generally if I recall.

> 多少 and 几

So 个 is some kind of particle which relates to the quantification or "amountness" of some subject? (what is 个 anyways? I see it everywhere).
几 and 多少 are like "a few" and "some" then? They're synonymous, but one sounds better in different contexts? Is Chinese like english where you have to rely on feedback and intuition (along with "rules" that are really more like guidelines) to understand how to say things in a way that "sounds right" in the current speech context (like poetic vs formal vs informal vs etc speech)?
On that topic, are there unsettled battles of grammar formalisms like the dreaded oxford comma in english?

Appreciate it, I'll try those.
Ah yeah, that's a huge thing.
There's a billion of these "measure words", 个 (ge) is the generic one, so if you're not sure which measure word to use, use 个.
I've seen other explanations but the one that make sense to me is this:
In English, we have words like "paper" where you can't usually say "3 papers", you have to measure it somehow and say "3 pieces of paper". Chinese has no plural words so you have to do this for literally everything. You would say something like "3 fruits of apple" instead of "3 apples". The word you add is called a measure word, so you'd say "3 个 apple".
Same for if there's not a specific number. "how many apples" becomes "how many 个 apples".
What gets confusing is that you sometimes need to do this if there's only one. If you say "I want an apple", you don't need a 个, you can just say "I want apple". But if you say "that apple" you do need to say "that 个 apple". Lots of times, you technically can use a measure word "I am 1 个 doctor", but it's obvious you're not two doctors so you just say "I am doctor".
If I ever come up with a really simple explanation for when you do or do not use measure words, I'll let you know, but as far as I know it's not very simple. But definitely use them with plurals, and reference words like that/this/which/etc.

There are a billion measure words depending on what you're talking about, flat things like maps and tables use 张, 位 is a polite measure word for people, etc. I don't know many because I honestly don't know many nouns.

How many of you are lonely?

I get the impression that a lot of people now a days are lonely, with this pandemic only making it worse. Not only that, people have difficulty reaching out to others because they fear rejection. People that could be good friends will never be simply because they're too shy. I myself really only have one friend I talk to regularly. Besides that I'm alone with my thoughts most of the time.

I've been trying to get out to the real world and find people, but the issue is that I also feel the most comfortable with people that tend to lurk imageboards the most.
I am attractive to some extent, and I had girls be fairly into me, but it's just that it doesn't seem to work out, I act avoidant or distant the moment they start showing interest in me and that screws everything up, I don't know why really. I won't find a sushiwife outside, I should just accept that fact.
But another part of me wants to fight the impossible odds really

Kept on seeing this thread and thoguht I might as well finally post something. I'm honestly very happy I decided to take the time to learn to touch type , it's so much faster and much more satisfying thatn having to constantly look at the keys. I do wonder if the I should switch to one of those other fancy keyboards like dvorak or something that's supposedly much more efficient. Seems like to much of a hastle for me honestly.
woah I did so much better than I thought I would, I kept on changing my thoughts and rewriting what I said, so I thought it would be super bad

Hearing things as 'to loud' when they pretty silent is an actual neurological condition. I'd bring it up to a doctor.
You wont get drugs for it, but could get your inscerence to cover the therapy. You could diy it yourself though, exposure therapy and playing stack in the background 30 mins a day is the main treatment.


I just wanna holiday in peace & quiet …


I haven't been out of the house since Summer of 2019. Then with the rise of more contactless deliveries, etc. I never saw a reason to go back outside. I can't drive and freak out over surveillance as well as being jumped by people out in public. I haven't had a social life since the late 2000s. Some people wonder how I haven't went completely insane yet. I do talk to myself every day and ended up creating a system where I have split my mind into pieces with their own personalities that we all ended up having conversations with each other in a mental type of chamber.

you responded to your own question.

talking to one's self is one of the strategies the brain develops to not lose sanity.

it's when you stop talking at all for a very long time that you become insane.

I live on my own too, which means I have chores and errands as well. This also means I have to feed myself too. Working is also something I do, the same goes for exercising.
A typical day is to work 9 hours, sleep 9 hours commute to work and back for 1 hour and use the other 5 to play video games, watch anime and lurk on image boards. Now and then an errand or a chore needs to be done, twice a week exercising is due and everyday something edible has to be created. On weekends, holidays and vacation the 9 hours of work are being added to video games, anime and lurking.


if i were as busy as you id only eat boxxed and bagged foods lmao forget about creating something edible ever lul


Living in deep frustration. I should have been in part-time paradise starting in August, but having to "tie up loose ends" has extended this agony up to late-October. When I get home, looking at my schedule is enough to feed a flame of demoralization within me and I submit to inertia. There's so much I want and must do, but bullshit work is getting in the way of the pursuit of my real goals. Barely clinging to the gains I secured before this ordeal began is the most I can manage.

I am way overdue replying to the following posts. Somehow I always miss direct replies to me, even though I make sure I check. My apologies.

Thank you. I'm glad you find my writing entertaining enough to warrant a bookmark. My japanese-learning journey continues with the dread of it becoming a never-ending journey now looming over me. I'm getting better but still nowhere near the level I had wished. I hope you've been managing to make progress on your own journey.

This is a whole article for the "Social Media" portion of my webpage. I still feel like my webpage has too many negative-toned entries for me to be adding the kind of venomous sludge that the social media section will contain, so I still haven't published it.

In short, I have come to the conclusion a community needs at least a small fraction of independent, persistent pseudonymous members in order to galvanize its own history from outside attack vectors.

Don't be afraid to let your reader's imagination and/or autism spectrum disorder do the work for you! You can get way more flavor out of mere voice than you can imagery so why not let the reader have some fun with the details? There's only so many things that you can compare weak legs to but there's all kinds of different people who could try to describe the same thing:

>Billie's shit is fucked all the fuck to hell and she should probably see a doctor regarding said fuckedness at sometime within the near future.

>Billie is looking like a 200lb. bag of oof and she's walking like one, too.

Treat your story like a conversation. How people respond to you affects how they respond to what you have to say. Your personality is just another tool of communication and it takes an engaging narrator to relay an engaging narrative.

Time for scorched earth..


Large words usually have more specific connotations than smaller ones. They demand and create specific contexts to be used. "Big" and "large" almost always work, but "gargantuan" means something specific, and sometimes you don't want specific. In fact, unless you specifically want specificity, you probably don't need it.


One reason I left the Patent Office was that while there were a lot of good people there, it did attract its share of weirdos. I could go on for pages, but this one weirdo is the case-in-point.

Today, he would be called an incel or gamer or geek. He was a 30-something male, overweight and unkempt, who was lazy and didn't do his job and blamed everyone else for his woes. You know, your average computer geek male in 2022. He was fat, he was slovenly, and one habit in particular drove me nuts.

He would go down to the basement mall in Crystal City and buy these "big gulp" soda-pops in plastic cups. You get to keep the cup! And he did. He would gulp this soda and then have a burping contest. I am not kidding about this. He would belch, loudly, and actually open the door to his office and lean out into the hallway so it would echo throughout the floor. And I am not talking about a small burp, but these long, drawn-out, "Burrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap! kind of things.

Gross. But it got worse.

He kept the cups in his office - unwashed - and stacked them up in the corner. As a result, we had an infestation of cockroaches in the office, and that was gross, too. I mentioned this to my boss and since the guy was in another Art Unit, there was nothing to be done, as his supervisor (who was also slovenly and stupid) didn't see it as a problem but thought it was "funny" and that I needed to "lighten up."

Of course, the guy was mortgaging cases - he was a lazy slob, so he would pretend to examine cases to meet his quota and avoid being fired (he was always 1% above the level of production needed to keep his job). And eventually it was discovered that, gee-whiz, whaddya know? He's a scumbag!

Interesting thing that. I read all the time online about people being harassed and bullied at work, and supervisors and managers who defend the bullies and harassers. Later on, they find out the miscreants were stealing from the company. Maybe when someone complains about boorish behavior in the workplace, you should pay attention. The guy harassing the secretary isn't just a "jerk" or being "inappropriate" - he probably isn't doing his job, either. When you have enough time in the day to stir the pot, chances are, you don't have enough to do. Just fire people like that - if they feel so entitled they can get away with whatever they want - and you let them - they will probably be your downfall.

Pink, 3, C.
I think I might lean more towards Orchid or Grey, but several of my partners in the past have gotten bored of me for that reason. So now I'm kind of just trying to get laid. I think what I want most in a relationship is to be able to touch my partner (e.g. kissing, hugging, sleeping together, not necessarily sex), and sex is an easy way to get those things. So I'm alright with just hooking up to get those things, since I don't think my chances of being in a long-term relationship again are very good at this point. Each relationship I have is shorter than the last, my last one lasted a week. So I just don't even feel like trying anymore, I just need to get laid so I can touch a human being.

I don't interact with people in the flesh and blood world so 2/3rds of the chart is meaningless to me. As for orientation it would be easy to say I'm bisexual but that is not exactly true. Almost all of my fantasies and the pornography I consume are fetishistic in nature, and I would say everything gay is just a fetish for me, an extra layer of taboo to excite me.

I just happened to be reading a little bit of Philosophy in the Bedroom by Marquis de Sade and I immediately related to the characters. It feels good to know I am not completely alone in my sexual proclivities. Occasionally, I will meet someone online with a similar disposition to mine, but this is rare even when I go looking around in fetish communities. I really wish I had a libertine wife but it will never happen and it eats away at me from the inside.

I had romantic feelings in the past. Sometimes I can't tell if it is romance or just friendship. If there is no sexual component, how do you even distinguish them?

Lots of good advice in this thread.
I would say it's good to have a first aid kit on hand so you don't have to go out to the store in case you cut yourself.
A flashlight or two for if the power goes out.
Also, packs of wet wipes are great for wiping down pretty much anything that's dusty or dirty.

I moved from a not so big but very modern city to the countryside some years ago to do medicine college. In the end I didn't like it, but there were some important developments on my life and learning to live by my own in a house with strangers was valuable, but holy fuck what annoying deceptive people, it gets worse that at the countryside people think they have to take care of your life. It got lonely that everybody valuable was far away and controlling strangers were near, but the freedom was good, with time i learned to not care about the countryside silly social customs.
Living on your own is good to understand your own agency over your life. It's always good to take hobbies that will help you decorate your place and fill it with things that make you happy. I made the mistake of living on a plain white no personality undecorated room for 3 years, because I had to manage money tightly. Nowadays I live with this agency i learned there, but at rooms family lend me while I don't finish my college course.
