A Bit Of An Explanation

I am not a professional. Not anywhere near it. But I like to think that some little observations I have about language and the social construction of it are worthwhile.

Some of these notes were originally written for acquaintances with no linguistic experience whatsoever, so please be patient through the explanations of basic concepts, and the simplistic tone.

Songs In Languages I Don't Speak - Round 3: Es Izjāju Prūšu Zemi

L.I.D.S.: Latvian!

It's funny: The first time I heard this song, I hated it. Then I listened again, and I began to love that melody. It certainly doesn't help that Latvian (and Lithuanian) are gorgeous languages to my ears, probably because of the Proto-Indo-European qualities of them.

And I'm totally going to pretend that I'm not singing along to those helpful karaoke lyrics...
