    I like to give my meatheaded character stereotypical German names like "Konrad Eisenstein" or "Ulrich Kavernfaust" because German is a barbaric language and thusly awesome.

    The original use of the word "barbarian" technically referred to anyone outside of the Roman Empire, so that would be correct.

    It's greek for "People who speak like sheep" for their "cultured ears" Germanic languages just sounded like sheep baaing. Hence Barbarian, the Romans carried that tradition over when dealing with the same people. So anyone who's not speaking Germanic, Slavic, or Scandinavian language would be consider Barbarians.

    Since English is a Germanic Language, and "American" evolved from English. We're all technicality speaking, Barbarians.

That one time she read a rather long text in Swedish to the class, it was actually pretty beautiful. maybe it was just her voice but I was surprised how smooth and pleasant Swedish could sound. She also cried half way thought because it was 'a very sad text' she said.

    The entire class didn't know what to say, it was kinda weird listening to a crying women, reading a sad story about German soldier in Sweden during WWII in a language we didn't understand. But it was fascinating and lovely.

    This is pretty much equivalent to their/they're, isn't it?

    They're definitely doing it wrong then. Or maybe they used a font with nothing but capital letters.

    Nobody tried to document that dialect? We've got a bunch of such projects here in my region.

    You know what's even worse? Mistranslated English slogans or names like "coffe to go".

    It's bullshit, first of all it's COFFEE, then.... to go? As in to run away from? To take it with you? Coffee to go sounds just balls. How about not writing it in English in the first place? Why bother translating it if 100% of the customers are GERMAN anyway? What's up with that shit?

    "[food item] to go" is not a mistranslation.

    You're right, it's no fucking translation at all.

    The "to go" is entirely correct, assuming it means coffee you'll be taking with you as opposed to consuming it where you bought it.

    Seriously though, Arnie was born for that role. Can't believe they won't put him into the role of Conan in the remake. Fucking waste, man.

    I'm not even saying I think it's a necessary distinction, just that it's not a recent delineation of English. In Crowley's time I think it would have been more useful but it's pretty irrelevant these days. And yes, mainly used by fat wiccan chicks. As a magician (not the GOB kind), I'd be pretty loathe to use "magick" when talking to pretty much anybody.
