Word Spy Italian Learn Italian Online: Every Language is Made Up of Words Learning Italian Obvious statement that is, I know. Imagine someone coming from abroad entering a shop in your town and asking the clerk “bread, oil, apples, how cost?” Words are the skeleton a language is built around, once we know them we can grow in confidence and refine our knowledge with simple phrase patterns. While approaching a new language we usually set a sort of a standard with ourselves, based on our ability in our own native language. We should change that: we master our own language and didn’t certainly reach mastership starting with books and rules. Which words, and how? Start with nouns of things you have around all the time and talk to yourself like “I’ll drink un caffè now”, “let me andare in salotto for a while”, “tempo to cook again”, “adesso is time for una pausa” and so on. As time goes by, you can start understanding how the verbs system works but just after you have a good amount of words at hand.

Online Etymology Dictionary Paleoglot: north caucasian I wrote an article last month, The Tower of Babel, which was an unexhaustive critical assessment of the late Sergei Starostin's grandiose online language project that limps on today through the efforts of surviving project members. A recent troll on that page under an unconvincing disguise of "G.Starostin" sent me two messages, one visible because it was civil if not misguided, while the second was abusive and thrown in the trash after I took note of his IP address. In case anyone was confused, my blog isn't a mouthpiece for proto-world rhetoric and I'm an ardent defender of mainstream linguistics despite my moderate interest in long-range linguistics. It suffices to reject the Tower of Babel project based simply on the consistent use of outdated and even disprovable information. The abuse of mathematical symbols like C, V, [a-z], (a/é/ö), etc. are an excellent way to make your idle conjecture look like a valid theory. *k`egana, *k`egena, *k`egina, *k`egüna, *k`egïna, etc.
