OMG, I'm SO excited!!!!

thank you to everyone who has replied to my request for the translations of frequently used LJ-words in your language!

*blaas vir almal 'n soentjie*

I've sorted through all the comments on my posts, and arranged them by language - each language is under a different LJ-cut. this will hopefully make it easier to find whatever language you're looking for at first glance.

...because of course now all of you will refer back to this post all the time so you can love the girls in their own language, with the pretty squiggly letters where applicable - you can just copy and paste them. :D

*very pleased with self*

Thanks to everyone who has already replied to my request for the translation into your language for some frequently LJ-words - well, ones I used frequently.

Have a lookie here for the current list - I've also added the link to my journal, 'cause from now on I want to SQUEE in:

- German
- Norwegian
- Hungarian
- New England slang (which is just WICKED!)
- Greek (eeep!! have a look at the prettiest little letters!)
- Croatian
- Romanian
- Spanish
- Dutch

However... *blushes* it pains me to admit this, that I have forgotten the most important words of all: 'thank you' and ‘please’


Thank you - 'dankie' (thank you) or 'dankie baie!' (informal) or 'baie dankie!'(thank you very much!)
Please - 'asseblief' or 'pretty please' (informal) would be 'seblief?'

Apologies to everyone for having to comment again, but... seblief??

Then... where is my Italian and French girls?????? *feels neglected - tears up* I haven't had any Italian or French replies... *bawls*

one of the ways to convey strong emotions in Afrikaans )

A while ago [livejournal.com profile] auselysium said she’d like to know some Afrikaans words. Now… apart from my cat and my boys - Brian and Justin and my real life ones - there are few things I get more excited about than the beauty that is my mother tongue. *adores [livejournal.com profile] auselysium for asking!!!*

And probably because of my passion for Afrikaans, I also love learning new languages. At least, I love being able to sort of pronounce enough words to get around in foreign countries – no way will I ever learn another language, in addition to Afrikaans and English, well enough to be able to speak it properly. I’m just too fucking lazy. :D

So, here’s what we’re going to do! I’ve got people from all over the world on my flist. Instead of only me and [livejournal.com profile] auselysium playing, all of you are invited! Even if English is your mother tongue, maybe you’ve got certain phrases or words that are only used in your part of the world? Gimme-gimme-gimme!!!

how do I say... )
