ICDL - International Children's Digital Library Google Scholar L'aménagement linguistique dans le monde: page d'accueil About this site - Notes from a Linguistic Mystic This site exists both as a place for me to post the things that intrigue me and make me think, but also as a place for you to find and learn about things that might intrigue you. I’ll do my best to write in such a way that you don’t need a background in Linguistics to understand my posts, and always feel free to comment if you don’t understand something. I’ll post a clarification as soon as I can. Although I’m a Linguist by trade and by passion, some what I’m discussing on this site might fall outside of mainstream linguistics. About the Author More information than you likely wanted to know can be found at my personal homepage. If you’d like to get in touch with me to discuss my posts and ideas, voice a concern, make a correction, or just get to know me, feel free to email me at parangaricutirimicuaro (at) linguisticmystic dot com (It’s the name of a volcano in Mexico, used here so that spambots will have a whole lot of fun trying to guess my address at random).

Liste de langues Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Cet article constitue une liste regroupant par ordre alphabétique les langues nationales et construites. Les familles de langues ne sont pas dans cette liste, sauf s'il s'agit à la fois d'une langue et d'une famille de langue. Par exemple, on n'y trouvera pas l'ibéro-roman car c'est une famille de langues. En revanche, y figure l'indo-européen, car c'est une langue morte (même hypothétique) qui est devenue une famille de langues. Elle compte actuellement un total de 867 langues dont 83 sont désignées comme langues officielles par différents pays.

The Genius in All of Us 10 of the best words in the world (that don't translate into English) One of the many great things about languages worldwide is the sizeable number of words for which there is no real English translation. Often they tell us about concepts and ideas that we are missing out on in the anglophone world. As the northern hemisphere heads abroad in the coming holiday season, here are a few to be looking out for: SPAIN: sobremesa You may have witnessed the ritual, knowingly or not, while on the hunt for a coffee or a cold beer towards the end of another long Spanish afternoon. Sitting clumped around tables inside restaurants or spilling out on to their terrazas, are friends, families and colleagues, preserved in the post-prandial moment like replete insects in amber. Lunch – and it is more usually lunch than dinner – will long since have yielded to the important act of the sobremesa, that languid time when food gives way to hours of talking, drinking and joking. Ask Mariano Rajoy. PORTUGAL: esperto/esperta If you understand it, you probably are. ITALY: bella figura
