  1. So as an American, I realize that there are many who only speak one language (Some Americans can't even speak one language, at certain times). So I was wondering, how many people here are at least bilingual? For me I am a bilingual who speaks English and Chinese due to the fact that my adopted parents are Chinese. What do you speak and what other languages do you speak?
  2. Personally, mine is spelling. I'm fine with typos, though, because everyone has those once in a while. I mean things like misspelling "maroon" as "moron". Yes, it's happened. EDIT: I realized I made a spelling error when I typed this post, whoops.
  3. What is your favorite school subject? Mine personal is art and creative writing.
  4. What are some words/phrases in vogue that you love or hate? For me... Love: - "hella"; I don't know, just has an adorable kind of feel to it, and it helps rid of redundancy with the words "very" and "really". - "facepalm"; because I do that quite a lot. - "ship"; because shipping your favorite characters can be quite fun and fulfilling. Hate: - "literally"; specifically when people say it but they're talking metaphorically... How could you have "literally exploded" if you're standing here in front of me telling me this and you're in one piece? - "YOLO"; just... stop. No. Besides, do you mean "YOLO" as in be careful and don't kill yourself? Or do you mean "YOLO" as in live life to its fullest and do reckless, possibly stupid, activities? Sorry, I fail to understand. - "faze"... but you mean "phase", right, as in a noun? Plus it's a bit uncreative and vague; instead of saying "it's just a phase" can you be more specific please?
  5. Sure, some books that you read in literature were absolutely disgraceful, like... The Metamorphosis. Of course that's just my opinion. But occasionally, we actually enjoy a book that we didn't think we would. For example, The Book Thief is an outstanding novel. An much older classic that I enjoyed was A Tale of Two Cites by Charles Dickens. While it's very easy to complain about to your classmates when reading it, everyone seems to really enjoy the conclusion. So... what books did you actually like from school? Feel free to complain about some of the awful things you had to read as well. (So many Holocaust books... Like I said, The Book Thief was great, but... Literally ALL OF THE HOLOCAUST BOOKS!) Discuss.
  6. I was just wondering who all uses their Oxford commas. It isn't required in the English language but many prefer to use it. If you don't know what it is, in a list it's the comma right before and. A sentence with an Oxford comma: I went to the store to get eggs, milk, butter, and bacon. A sentence without an Oxford comma: I went to the store to get eggs, milk, butter and bacon. I personally prefer use Oxford commas.
  7. So, I was browsing a website called Knowable, and I happened across this poem. I feel like it perfectly sums up the entire English language and the strange way we pronounce words almost exactly the same as something completely different. Enjoy! Dearest creature in creation, Study English pronunciation. I will teach you in my verse Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse. I will keep you, Suzy, busy, Make your head with heat grow dizzy. Tear in eye, your dress will tear. So shall I! Oh hear my prayer. Just compare heart, beard, and heard, Dies and diet, lord and word, Sword and sward, retain and Britain. (Mind the latter, how it's written.) Now I surely will not plague you With such words as plaque and ague. But be careful how you speak: Say break and steak, but bleak and streak; Cloven, oven, how and low, Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe. Hear me say, devoid of trickery, Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore, Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles, Exiles, similes, and reviles; Scholar, vicar, and cigar, Solar, mica, war and far; One, anemone, Balmoral, Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel; Gertrude, German, wind and mind, Scene, Melpomene, mankind. Billet does not rhyme with ballet, Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet. Blood and flood are not like food, Nor is mould like should and would. Viscous, viscount, load and broad, Toward, to forward, to reward. And your pronunciation's OK When you correctly say croquet, Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve, Friend and fiend, alive and live. Ivy, privy, famous; clamour And enamour rhyme with hammer. River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb, Doll and roll and some and home. Stranger does not rhyme with anger, Neither does devour with clangour. Souls but foul, haunt but aunt, Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant, Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger, And then singer, ginger, linger, Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge, Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age. Query does not rhyme with very, Nor does fury sound like bury. Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth. Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath. Though the differences seem little, We say actual but victual. Refer does not rhyme with deafer. Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer. Mint, pint, senate and sedate; Dull, bull, and George ate late. Scenic, Arabic, Pacific, Science, conscience, scientific. Liberty, library, heave and heaven, Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven. We say hallowed, but allowed, People, leopard, towed, but vowed. Mark the differences, moreover, Between mover, cover, clover; Leeches, breeches, wise, precise, Chalice, but police and lice; Camel, constable, unstable, Principle, disciple, label. Petal, panel, and canal, Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal. Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair, Senator, spectator, mayor. Tour, but our and succour, four. Gas, alas, and Arkansas. Sea, idea, Korea, area, Psalm, Maria, but malaria. Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean. Doctrine, turpentine, marine. Compare alien with Italian, Dandelion and battalion. Sally with ally, yea, ye, Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key. Say aver, but ever, fever, Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver. Heron, granary, canary. Crevice and device and aerie. Face, but preface, not efface. Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass. Large, but target, gin, give, verging, Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging. Ear, but earn and wear and tear Do not rhyme with here but ere. Seven is right, but so is even, Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen, Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk, Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work. Pronunciation -- think of Psyche! Is a paling stout and spikey? Won't it make you lose your wits, Writing groats and saying grits? It's a dark abyss or tunnel: Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale, Islington and Isle of Wight, Housewife, verdict and indict. Finally, which rhymes with enough -- Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough? Hiccough has the sound of cup. My advice is to give up!!! (I don't know who wrote this, if it was the OP or if it was copy and pasted. If anyone recognises it, do tell. Here's where I found it.)
  8. This might give some interesting results. Given that MLP Forums is on the international English-speaking web, intuition would say that most would likely be from primarily English-speaking countries. The reason I chose to put attention on the language of the national anthem is because that language would most likely be a big part of that culture's identity. Perhaps not totally (I'm looking at you, Quebec) but large enough.
  9. Any somewhat decent female vocalists wanna do some english covers of vocaloid songs with me? I play the guitar, and for a while now I've wanted to some english covers of vocaloid songs, but I don't know any female singers, anyone interested in maybe partnering up? I wouldn't care whose youtube channel it ended up getting uploaded on, hell if it's allowed by youtube, you can even have the ad revenue. Just curious to see if anyone would actually be interested, age doesn't matter, gender kinda does, vocal range doesn't matter, I really just want someone to jam to some vocaloid music with.
  10. This is an essay I wrote for my English class. We had to write about how it felt to be something about us, and I naturally chose autism. My teacher loved it so much, that I even got to read it in front of the entire school faculty. So here it is. How it Feels to be Autistic Me Sometimes, I feel as if I am from a foreign country. I sometimes have trouble picking up social cues and I always feel different compared to everyone else. The comparison of me to other people is like comparing someone from America to someone from France. Thus is my journey through my life of having autism. On some days, I feel like I am from England. For example, when I go to school, everyone has different social cues when talking to people like sarcasm, and joking around with people. When I hear these jokes, I sometimes take them a little too seriously. It is like these people have a different social standard compared to me. I talk a bit more formal at school like someone in England, while others talk like they are more casual like they are from America, That does not mean I don’t have any American blood. I can talk casual, just not as much as others. This is what can cause bumps in the road on my journey. On other days, I feel like I am from Brazil. In Brazil, the popular sport is Soccer while in America, the popular sport is Football. I have somewhat different interests than most kids. While most boys my age are into extreme sports, I am into watching cartoons. I never saw the appeal in throwing or kicking around a ball trying to score a point. I found my interests in having a cartoon give me a good old laugh. This makes it hard for me to talk about my interests because not many people are into the same activities I am. I do find other kids with these interests, but they are the kids I barely see. However, I have found some safe spots in my journey. When you go to some foreign country, you bring along a guest or someone to translate for you. This is the case when I’m at home. My family knows about autism and they do what they can to help me be treated just like everybody else. My mom gives me all the advice I need on how to be socially acceptable. My older sister keeps me entertained and gives me more personal advice that my mom struggles on giving. My step dad gives me more of the joking advice, to play along with me so I learn how to take a joke. With all these family members, I have clear translation on my journey. When in another country, you may also be handicapped with certain things such as being able to understand people. This is the case for me with anything involving motor skills. I grew up having fine motor issues, meaning that stuff like driving, drawing or tying my shoes is really hard to me. I did not learn how to tie my shoes until I was 12. I want to learn how to draw, but that will take a lot of practice and more learning. My drawing skills have gotten better though. I just need to relax and look at a reference picture to get it down well. I have found ways to get through this setback on my journey. The journey around the world with autism may be a long one, but it sure is a wild ride. I may not be as good at some tasks as other people are, but that doesn’t mean I am much lesser of a person than they are. I can talk, I can walk, I can socialize, and I know what is socially acceptable. This here is what makes my journey complete.
  11. So, yesterday night I was rambling around in my thoughts. I looked around and saw one drawing of a king I made some years ago and then realized something. If my mind wasn't betraying me, a few years ago I learnt that the christian kings of the Middle Ages used "us", "our" and "we" to address themselves, the reason for this was that what they really meant was "God and I", since they had the 'divine right' to be kings. If Luna does the same thing, she's talking on her's and Celestia's behalf or there's actually a divine entity similar to God in Equestria? Of course it may just be a reference to Nightmare Moon, but it would be very odd if Luna talked constantly making reference to the evil spirit, especially after all she's been through. Surely they just made her talk like that because it was very fitting, but it would be great if they could clarify this to us.
  12. Alright, so I thought about just posting this in a status update, but I kinda like how the blogs are much more free with the character limit(Well actually I don't think there is a limit on characters in a blog, so quite a bit more free ;p.) and it just looks more formal and stuff, and I had something happen today that was interesting in my opinion, and made me feel good today. And I figured it'd make a fairly decent blog entry, so I was like "Why not? I haven't done a blog on here in a while anyways." So on with the story shall we? So today was a Friday school day, usually pretty normal, but good as it's the end of the week. But today I had a little bit of an interesting thing happen in English class. So yesterday for English class we were given an assignment that we had the chance to do at home that night, or do the next day in class. I myself did the assignment the night before, simply because I wasn't sure if i'd have time or not to do the assignment as my English teacher has the tendency to turn things into stories and get off track sometimes.(I find the stories interesting in many cases, some are simply history, or background information or something, but they can drag on a while.) Anyways, the assignment was this poem analyzing assignment, honestly I am not anything amazing with analyzing poems, but I did it regardless well enough i'd hope. We used this format called "TPCASTT" I don't know if anybody else has had teachers use it, but my English this teacher had us use it for two different poems. So anyways, since I was finished with my assignment, my English teacher asked me to help a student with the assignment. Now the student who I was helping is one of those students who doesn't really want to do much of any school, and usually would rather cheat or just copy answers, and he kind of expected me to let me do that considering I had finished my work, and I was told to help him. Now, I'll admit that many times people have asked me this, and I have just kinda gave up, or not said anything, especially if it's someone i'm more well acquainted with. Plus, I'm usually pretty shy and quiet around people I do not know that well, and typically won't say anything and just let them copy. But today I felt compelled to do something different, and guess what happened? I said no. *Surprise* Lol, but really, I don't usually do that kind of thing honestly, I guess I maybe have a hard time doing so at times, especially if I know the person, but today for some reason, I was determined to say no. Now, did that mean I simply said no and gave up on him? To have him sit there and do nothing? Nope, didn't do that either this time. I decided to go all "professor" on him, I say professor because I kind of felt a bit teacher like the way I went about the whole thing. So instead of "helping" him I helped him. By guiding him through what to do, the real way to help. At first he just kinda thought it a joke, but after some rejection of him asking to just tell me the answer I kind of got him working. Then a student sitting next to him asked me for some help, I ended up rejecting what he wanted, for me to just tell him the answer, but he seemed the most willing to accept my help. So I again said mostly what I said to the other guy I was originally assigned to help. And then after that my teacher asks me if I could take on another person to help(Something along those lines, he is an English teacher, and thus he talks pretty formally, i'm sure you understand what I am saying. I forget his exact words.) regardless I decided to accept. This last student was a girl who again like the other two, would have rather I just tell her the answers, instead of helping her to learn how to find it out, but again, I rejected this idea, and I tried to help her as well. She was the least willing of all of them to accept my advice and guidance, and after the first few parts of the assignment she just kinda gave up. Another student asked me for "help" again, but I rejected her idea of help, and she rejected my guidance. So she isn't really important to the story, the other girl stayed around for a little bit, and I feel I may have got through to her slightly, but I feel like she was much more concerned with just copying, because she would try to copy from guy who was the most willing to learn how to do it himself. So eventually she just kinda left. I focused on the two guys left, mainly on the 2nd one who was most willing to learn how to properly do this. I kind of felt like a teacher, because I kept encouraging him to think and explain himself, instead of telling him what to do, I think being in counseling oddly enough kind of helped with this, even if counseling had nothing to do with this really, because my counselor would often ask me to explain myself, instead of letting me be vague. The other guy kind of thought for himself, but eventually he was mostly just copying. And then I think he started guessing. So I focused my attention on the one guy who seemed to be atleast listening and trying to figure out the poem for himself(especially important considering how poems are alot about interpretation anyways.) And through my teacher like attitude of helping by explaining the process and helping to encourage and guide thinking, he was actually getting through things, which I thought was pretty good considering that he probably would have rather just copy the answers. He came up with all the answers on his own, with only some input from me guiding him. And while he wasn't able to finish the entire assignment that day, our teacher let everyone finish it for homework, and since I had guided him through most of it, I think he atleast learned somewhat how to do the poem analysis. I don't know for sure how much of it he took to heart, and how much he thought I was just being nerdy and a jerk by not helping him, I don't know how much he laughed about the whole thing, or if he actually learned from the experience. I even mentioned while rejecting having the girl copy my answers that copying the answers would only get her so far(I know, kind of cliche, but it's true.) And so I feel that through actually attempting to help for once, instead of letting them copy, I feel like I atleast got through to them to some degree, to maybe help them not to just copy their way through school. Regardless, I felt quite accomplished actually, and I felt like I did a pretty good job of being a sort of teacher in a sense. It was actually quite enjoyable to see that I actually was making progress with teaching and explaining the process to him. So yeah, today was a pretty nice day, simply because that made me feel accomplished. Was I being to much of a nerd? Should I have just given up and let them copy? Should I have not bothered to try and help change their ways? Idk really. I don't know for sure how effective it is, infact, I doubt that any of them will never cheat or copy again just because some kid in their grade told them it wouldn't pay off, but i'd like to think that the effort maybe helped them atleast consider it, maybe I even helped to some extent, and I think that's what counts. So yeah, sorry for being a bit rambled and long winded, I do that a lot, especially writing stuff. Hopefully this was atleast somewhat intriguing to you all, so tell me what your thoughts are on the whole thing if you get a chance. Did I do the right thing? Or was it a simple waste of my time? That's all for now, You can get out of my mind now ;p.
  13. I've noticed lately that Grammar has seemingly been getting lazier on the internet. People just don't seem to care about things like punctuation, and capitalization as much anymore. People will often revert to some form of "text talk." I'm making this thread to promote the usage of correct grammar since it makes things easier to read. I mean, we've all stumbled across those horrid wall-of-texts before that are basically just one giant run on sentence before. Now, it's reasonable to make a few mistakes every now and then. We all make mistakes after all. But I firmly believe that attempting to use correct grammar is a noble feat. The only thing stronger than fear is hope correct grammar. Now I know what you're probably thinking. In some aspects you're right about that. However, I understand that people make mistakes. Some common grammatical errors I see are similar to the examples given below. (Mostly examples 1, and 2.) Example 1: i think rainbow dash is the best pony she has an awesome mane and all of the other ponies their jealous of her awesomeness!!! Example 2: capitilization? what's that? i've never head of it before. Example 3: I'M SO AWESOME BECAUSE I TYPE IN ALL CAPS!!! So would you kindly support correct grammar? You don't have to be a Grammar Nazi. I mean, there are other options. Everybody likes Weird Al, right? If you wish to learn more about the ancient art of correct grammar usage, check out his new video. Disclaimer: This thread isn't meant to be taken seriously. It's more or less me joking about the poor grammar on the internet.
  14. I can't find a thread about Misfits (The British television show not the band) so I decided to make one. Anyone else a fan? If so who's your favourite character or your favourite power? Rudy's gotta be the best in my book, when he appears on screen hilarity ensues.
  15. Now a little back story: I'm a senior in college. My roommate has enough hours to be a senior but he's still probably 2 more years from actually finishing and getting a degree. But we're roughly the same age and we've been pretty close friends since 8th grade. We found we liked Pokemon (a lot) in high school and gaming is kind of our thing. But we're also pretty imaginative sometimes and we start making up some crazy stuff. Anyway, this is a running gag between us for the last five or six years or so. It started when we were diagnosing cereal mascots with psychotic disorders. Trix Rabbit: Lots of pent up anger because he sees no reason that Trix can only be for kids Lucky the Leprechaun (Lucky Charms): Severe paranoia that "they're always after" his "Lucky Charms" Sonny the Cuckoo Bird (Cocoa Puffs): Severe ADHD + Panic discorder. That bowl of Cocoa Puffs is always the straw that breaks the camel's back for this guy. That's just a few. This eventually evolved into creating our own superhero. He was years in the making. He lives in a little of all of us who patrol the internet. He is the Nazi of Nazis. Some accept and love him. Others reject and hate him. He is.... He is...Grammarman. It started with a conversation about people who are too lazy to be grammatically correct. We agreed that people spend 12 years in school being taught the only language they know. We're taught how to read, write, and use English for two-thirds of our childhoods. Therefore there's no reason to suck at it. If you were taught how to play piano for 12 years from the time you are 5 years old, would you absolutely suck at it or would you demonstrate some considerable skill? The same goes for language. We also agreed that if you're multilingual, you get cut a lot more slack on this. I can see how it would be easy to confuse the spellings of various words when you can be thinking in two or more languages at any given moment. Alright, now that I have that mini-rant out of the way, let's move on. . The story starts with a woman. One of those over the top feminist women who think guys are jerk bags when they hold the door because that makes them look weak. The Grammarphone (yes that's a pun on a gramophone--as in a vinyl record) goes off. It's a message from the store owner Owner: Grammarman! We need your help! Grammarman: I am on my way! [Grammarman strides politely into the McDonalds to find our scene] Grammarman: What is the problem here? Cashier: We gave her pickles on her cheeseburger. Woman: And I didn't want no pickles on my burger! Grammarman: [to woman] Did you want pickles on your burger? Woman: No! I didn't want no pickles on my burger Grammarman: Those sentences contradict each other. Woman: I didn't want no pickles and I got pickles! Grammarman: Exactly. Woman: And I told him I didn't want no pickles! Grammarman: Then, ma'am, I fail to see the problem. If you "didn't want no pickles" and you got pickles, then you did, in fact, order pickles. You got exactly what you ordered. NOW SHUT UP AND GO EAT THE FOOD YOU ORDERED! And so, thanks to our beloved Grammarman, a problem that never existed in the first place was resolved because someone was too stupid or lazy to properly use the only language he or she knows. What future struggles await our hero? Find out in the next issue of Grammarman! We had too much time on our hands in high school Grammarman hasn't popped up in conversation in a while, but his legacy lives on. Grammarman is the SSID for our internet router. We've also called it The Awesome Narwhal and NSA Monitoring Station before (thanks to Evilshy for that last one), but Grammarman is its current alias.
  16. All right from studying for finals coming up I had an idea to make this thread. So what is that one class in school where you're just like, "I just don't get it." For me, it's Honors Geometry because I'm more of an Algebra person, and Personal Finance, which is where we learn to deal with money and taxes and stuff. That class is like gibberish to me. So discuss away
  17. I started learning Japanese a few weeks ago and as I've been learning it, I've been comparing English to Japanese and how easy it is to learn English. I know that many of you are learning English as a second language to adjust to how most of the web is and I was wondering what it is like to learn.
  18. Hi everypony, I am at highschool now, in Romania, and I'll try to get my Cambridge exam this year or the next year. If I take it, I'll be able to work/go to collage in English speaking countries. I am taking bonus lessons of English and watch like 1 hour of a gameplay in English every day, but that's not enough. There are two very important probes: listening and speaking, and I need to practice them. I've heard that one of the best ways to be good at those two is by speaking with someone that was born in a English speaking country. So, if you have the time, the patience(to help someone) and you think you can handle a new accent you can help me by speaking on Skype while playing some games or something. My Skype is: vlad.creephunnter. Please, I don't want to be misunderstood, like I have no friends. I have a lot of friends in real life and I play games with them almost every night and go out every weekend. I also have a youtube channel with 3k subscribers where I made tons of friends. Have a nice day!
  19. Do you think english will lose its power as a lingua franca? You see,Latin was a widely used language many years ago,but ultimately fell down and was replaced.Many years later,english replaced french as a lingua franca,and to this day it still sits on the "throne" .Sure,english is widely used,but there's people who don't speak it,either because of cultural reasons or because how hard it is.So,do you think like Latin and French,English will get ultimately substituted by other tongue in the future?You see,if it happens,i'm a bit worried,cause i can speak english finely,yet i'm terrible at french,german and even portuguese (the closest language to spanish).So,what do ya think will happen with english?
  20. So we finally have the first song from the Japanese version of MLP, Giggle at the Ghostly. Which song do you guys like more? English, Japanese? English Japanese http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAbBA-BSYVU Right now I like both versions and if the subbing right, I kinda like some of the words and the tone in the Japanese version. Still I like the english version the most. It was the one thing that made me really like Pinkie Pie right away.
  21. Okay, I’m writing a research paper for my English class right now. The professor allowed us to write about any topic we wanted. Naturally, I wanted to write about MLP. I’m going to make the paper academic by making my topic prompt “gender stereotypes and how they have changed” something along those lines. What I’m asking from you all is if you guys would help me find some research or anything mildly academic that addresses MLP, also articles from anywhere would be most appreciated. I thank all of you in advance for going out of your way to help me find some of the research to write this paper because I do fear there isn’t that much, which means I may not be able to talk about My Little Pony and the Brony community as much as I’d like but it is certainly going to make its way into this paper. If any of you that help out would care to see the paper when I’m finished I’d be glad to post it for you all. Again, many, many thanks.
  22. Have you tried picking up a new language in your own leisure time and not because some class at school forced you to? I tried Japanese only for the selfish reason that I could watch raw anime episodes (w/o English translation) and I entertained the thought of visiting Japan in the near future. As for forced learning through school, had about 5 years of Spanish, 7th-11th grade. I didn't take it for 12th grade because the AP Exam scared me off with the recorded speaking session lol. If you are interested in learning a new language, I came across this article that appears pretty helpful and maybe it could help you out http://lifehacker.com/5903288/i-learned-to-speak-four-languages-in-a-few-years-heres-how
  23. I think Celestia should have a talk with these people. :/ http://now.msn.com/entertainment/0324-no-best-friends-rule.aspx The kids won't learn how to handle normal relationships, both the closeness and the losses that come with them. Any opinions on this?
  24. So today I met my first brony in real-life At school today we had a substitute teacher in one of my classes and he let us talk amongst ourselves. I talked with my friends for a while, before I decided to attempt to draw a muffin. I failed... Anyway, sometime after I finished drawing my fail muffin (sorry Derpy ) one of my friends (I say friends but it we were more of acquaintances) approached me asked, quite directly, if I was a brony. At first I was all like, "Whu?" but I realized what she had asked, I was all like "OH!" I quickly answered, "Yes!" and she seemed momentarily stunned. The shock was quickly replaced with sudden happiness as we began to talk about ponies. Long story short, I made a new brony friend today in my English class, and now I want to hear about your real-life encounters with your fellow bronies! Did you ever meet an unexpected brony? Have one of your long-time friends ever revealed their love for the show, without knowing that you were a fan yourself?
  25. I know that usually it's odd to ask someone what their favorite words are, but sometimes there are words that you just love using, or are just plain fun to say. Some of my favorites are: Serendipity Plunder Quaint Nebulous Discombobulate Papal Oblivion Guinness Pony
