Oh damn. the verb at the end of the snetence, right? That always gets me because I think what I write in swedish before I write it in german (when I write in english however I think in english) and using taht kind of grammar has a very...uh archaic feel to it, nonetheless swedish and german has much in common as far as words are concerned. i wish they wouldn't have such a fucked up grammar, I mean shit, i can't say big numbers because they throw the numbers around eins unt zweinzig, i mean, really?

zweinzig

heehee. I believe it's zwanzig, actually.
Yes, German grammar does feel a bit archaic in English as well. That's a bit of an advantage I find, though--I just imagine I'm speaking in Elizabethan English and a lot of the grammar feels more natural.
See? Reading Shakespeare is good for all apsects of life.

Es ist doch immer wieder interessant zu sehen, wohin meine Faulheit führen kann. Jetzt wird hier schon in den verschiedensten Sprachen, über die verschiedensten Sprachen gesprochen.

Get a room, you filthy pair!

(No, I can't read this, but this is the internet AND the Sinfest forum. If it's not filthy, then quite frankly I'm disappointed in both of you and you're letting the side down).

They're both written exactly the same Wink Cantonese is really a dialect of mandarin, albeit a very far-removed one.

Try this link:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie6/downloads/recommended/ime/default.mspx

You need to install an IME, which allows you to switch between languages in windows. For Japanese, I then use hiragana input - you type the pinyin so you type "watashi", it comes out as わたし, you press the space bar and it automatically converts it to 私. Fabulous Smile

*grunt**grunt*

me artist type.

me use mac.

*grunt**grunt*

OK, actually mac is usually much more useful for this stuff than PC because there's a li'l menu on the upper right-hand side that allows you to list your fav. scripts and dictionaries and you just have to pick from the list.

useful for me because my list goes as follows:
British flag (for spellings)
American flag (when I'm writing a paper for my Vassar profs)
French flag (so's I don't get a "wtf???" from the spellchecker when I'm typin' in French and use an accent egut, etc.)
Romaji
Hiragana (which converts to Kanji with the spacebar, like yours)
Katakana
Russian flag (for cyrillic chars. and Russian spellings)

however, this lovely convenient format means that the characters are encoded in a way some websites don't understand. o woe is me.
