Just looking into accommodation offer at Sarti. Can't wait to use one of these Greek roadside rest areas I love the atmosphere there. The sea air, high temperatures and the smell of hot asphalt. And the stray dogs everywhere I look Last year, my fiancée decided to feed one of them by remaining pieces of our frankfurters. The rest of the pack came very soon and it was almost unable to get rid of them

Enjoy yourself, again!

Oh, will someone just overthrow Putin already? I'm sick of having to worry about places like Donetsk.

It is indeed very nice theatre for common people. Putin makes "troubles" and the West makes "sanctions". And of course, Ukraine is like a nice prostitute, waiting for the one who can offer her more.

I still don't understand, why is European Union so against Scottish independence referendum, and menace by possible re-joint complications, whereas Ukrainian attempts to be part of the EU appreciates infinitely. Why EU did not support Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Estonia etc. that way in pre-2004 period?

Maybe because Russia didn't try to destroy our economies But actually it's pretty obvious that Ukraine is not going to join any time soon.

Today I started to learn to speak in Hungarian. It is not that difficult as it looked at first glance. But the word order is totally upside down

Interesting. What motivated you?
I only know few words, most of them I heard from Hungarian friends or at church, since the mass was in German and Hungarian.

Don't know. My dad is Hungarian and he never taught me speaking Hungarian. So I've decided to do it on my own. My goal is to improve my German and learn to speak Hungarian by the end of this year. I am just curious and a think it is necessary to know languages today.

To bad he didn't speak with you when you were still a child. Children learn very fast, and every language brings only benefits.
But it's still not to late, you should ask him to

I had a school colleague, he spoke all 4 major languages of Banat:
- with his mother and her mother, German,
- with his father and his father's parents, Serbian,
- with the father of his mother's father, Hungarian,
- and with the other ones, Romanian or any of the above

Welcome to the world of the Finno-Ugrian family of languages. You will have an interesting journey ahead.

Even if the Hungarian and Finnish languages were separated perhaps 5000 years ago, they still have much common in terms of grammar. The vocabularies are totally different, with a few coincidental exceptions.

A vast majority of European languages (and lots of non-European languages, too) belong to Indo-European group. They have not only a common basic vocabulary, but all have the same basic grammar structures (with lots of variations, though).
Finno-Ugric languages have a very different grammar structure and therefore are very difficult to learn for native Indo-European speakers (notice however that we had the same difficulties by learning the first Indo-European language!).
This differences make difficulties e.g. by film dubbing. In Hungarian there are no grammatic genders, i.e. we have the same word for "he" and "she" => "ő". In our language "ő" can be either a man or a woman and it is not possible to make a difference. You may know the scene of stoning in Monthy Python's Life of Brian. The Jewish official asks: "Who threw that stone?". There are many women there, although it is forbidden. And many of them answer: "She!", and a second later: "Oh, no, he, he!" because they realize a woman couldn't be there at all. It is fully impossible to translate it to Hungarian, because we have no different words for "she" and "he". In Hungarian dubbing it's at first "Az a nő" and then "Az a férfi" which literally means "that woman" and "that man". It is absolutely unnatural to speak so but it's the only way to translate the scene so that the translation has the same sense as the original.

Does that apply to Finnish as well? What about IT? He-she-it? Are they all one grammatical gender?


What about verbs? Do they have many different forms or are they like in English (very few basic forms like do, does, did, doing).
