Dear racist white police
Please take a pocket knife and draw it across your palm.
You would observe red fluid to come out.
It will bear startling resemblance to the blood of the “inferior” black people you killed.
I’m so tired of people telling me German is an “ugly, angry” language. When my German teacher tells us jokes it’s the sweetest, happiest language in the world. When I teach my father the word for daughter he smiles, repeating “Tochter” to himself until he gets it right, and in that moment German sounds like pride. There’s nothing angry or ugly about a language that never says goodbye, only “until we meet again.”
Are there a lot of languages that use “going to x” as a general future tense thing (i.e. when x is a verb that does not actually involve going anywhere)? Icelandic and English both do it but I don’t remember it from the other languages I’ve studied.
portuguese does that too
