>>53695448 I know it's banter m8, no need to tell it. I'm actually missing the flag extension and especially the old times where we had at least one flag extension advertisement thread per day. What happened to those?
>>53695785 I believe most newfags don't even know it exists in the first place. We should probably advertise for some days with daily threads. Also looks like PK added Walloon and Flemish flags, nice. Can't decide which one to use though, as I change my flag twice a week thanks to university.
>>53696663 So close to dubs... Also I have a rich as fuck uncle who lives in your capitol. His wife is a Luxembourger and speaks better English than me, are your people just smart as fuck? Also: >>53696663 >>53696576 Just fuck already, you both trade so much already
>>53696927 Every family here has one of those relatives, kek. My grandpa on my dad's side did this a lot: every time we visited he would talk about hunting fulmar and the grind and stuff, as well as family tales and how supposedly we have our own kvæði. I miss him a lot desu.
>>53697275 I speak Luxembourgish because I was actually born in Luxembourg and went to primary school there, but I theoretically still live on the exact border between Luxembourgish and local Lorraine-Romance speaking areas ("Gaumais"). The elderly often still speak Luxembourgish between themselves, but the younger ones don't unless they work on the other side of the border. We don't speak Plattdüütsch here though, that language is part of Northern Germany and the Eastern Netherlands.
How come you're so interested? Makes me actually happy to talk about it after a long time
>>53697578 >theoretically still live on the exact border between Luxembourgish and local Lorraine-Romance speaking areas How far from Luxembourg do you live? Is it some weird border situation akin to Baarle-Nassau? >The elderly often still speak Luxembourgish between themselves, but the younger ones don't unless they work on the other side of the border That's a shame, it's a part of the culture there I'm quite sure. Would you say most young people could still speak it if necessary? Like, if you started to speak it in conversation, would they be able to pick up on it? >How come you're so interested? I like smaller languages and dialects, and I think Lëtzebuergesch in particular sounds really interesting, considering my knowledge of German. A lot less harsh, flows better. https://youtu.be/z1Jfor9KJdE
>>53698023 >regional separatist You're gonna love this extension, then, since you'll see your regional flag every time you post. It works now, so thank the Dutch poster named PK every time you see him post (he made the extension).
>>53697955 5 kilometers away or something like that? In a village called Halanzy if you're interested (don't care if people know it, there's at least one other faggot from my village who also posts here). There's no weird border situation at all, just the normal one. We have these weird pillars cutting off Belgian Luxembourg from the Luxembourg country though
>That's a shame, it's a part of the culture there I'm quite sure. Would you say most young people could still speak it if necessary? Like, if you started to speak it in conversation, would they be able to pick up on it? I think not, it clearly died out on this side of the border, even if the geographic distribution was very small from the beginning as you've seen with the shown above map. A lot of people understand Gaumais and Walloon though and can speak it to a certain degree, thanks to the relative closeness between French and the Gaume dialect/Walloon language. Luxembourgish on the other hand is Germanic, that makes it much more difficult. A lot of people learn it to work in the Grand Duchy, because they can earn much more if they speak it. Belgian French is also heavily influenced by Walloon (and Dutch, like Belgian Dutch is heavily influenced by French and Flemish dialects, especially Brabantian)
>I like smaller languages and dialects, and I think Lëtzebuergesch in particular sounds really interesting, considering my knowledge of German. A lot less harsh, flows better. Yeah, it sounds really comfy, familiar I'd say. I'm actually proud of my Luxembourgish accent when talking Standard German. I'm also quite interested in smaller dialects and I'm trying to learn Walloon right now.
Tbf I'm kinda slowly losing my Luxembourgish though, as I literally never speak it and haven't spoken it for years. Here in Belgium student folklore is divided into faculty circles and regional circles, and we also have a Grand Duchy one. I literally go every sunday there just to hear them talk my zweet Mammesproch :^)
>>53698384 >but only users with installed script can see flags? right? Yes, but there are a lot of us
>>53698597 >is there similarities with luxemburgish and swiss german dialects? Not much, they're very distant. But they do share an affinity for shortening vowels from what I know.
>>53698665 >I think not, it clearly died out on this side of the border Rest in piece Luxembourg ;_; it used to be so big >Belgian French is also heavily influenced by Walloon I thought Belgian French was Walloon? >I'm actually proud of my Luxembourgish accent when talking Standard German Do Germans have trouble understanding your accent even when you're speaking Standard German? >Tbf I'm kinda slowly losing my Luxembourgish though Don't let it die m8, the more young people are losing it on a large scale and soon it might perish from everywhere but Luxembourg.
>>53699011 >I thought Belgian French was Walloon? Belgian French is just Standard French with some Walloon, Dutch, and other loanwords, sometimes other/older vocabulary (ninety is said nonante instead of quatre-vingts-dix) and some own expressions. Walloon on the other hand is a whole other language that shares the same origin as French, which is also a langue d'Oil. >Li walon est est mimbe del famile des lingaedjes d' oyi. Eto, i rsaetche bråmint des ôtes lingaedjes romans, come li roumin et l' roumantche, ossu bén pol motî kel croejhete.
>Do Germans have trouble understanding your accent even when you're speaking Standard German? Not at all, it just sounds very ... farmer-ish if the accent is heavy. Jean-Claude Juncker has a kinda moderate accent when talking in German if you want to know how it sounds.
>Don't let it die m8, the more young people are losing it on a large scale and soon it might perish from everywhere but Luxembourg. Don't be afraid, I'm doing my best so far. Funnily enough I still count in Luxembourgish and think in it to a certain degree, along with German, English, and Portuguese. I just need to have more free time and start practicing again.
>>53699279 Luxembourgish also has pneu, vélo and salut, of course French influence.
>>53701312 If you're really interested in flags you easily find about the extension after some time. More passive people won't look for it though and will only install it (if they do it in the first place) if you present them a link,
>>53701688 I'm a newfag too I guess I've been around for about 10 month, but I was interested in the regional flage because part of what I like in /int/ is that I always learn new stuff by googling name of cities, countries, wars or whatever people talk about here, and with the regional flag liking me directly to a research I spend hours wandering on wiki
>>53701846 > learn new stuff by googling name of cities, countries, wars or whatever people talk about here it's been almost two years since what you're looking for started disappearing m8. Now it's just bad memes, banter and general /pol/ and whiteness shit along with cancerous generals full of cucks and anime shit. Luckily there's still /urban/
>>53702029 Yeah you are not the first one to tell this to me but even that is enough, I can learn things from shitposting too all it takes for me is someone mentioning how [this country] was cucked by [another country] during whatever war, and I'll google the name of the war, battles, etc
>>53703957 You must look at the folders with the exact flag names, otherwise it won't display your flag. If you're talking about the flags only appearing next to some posters it's normal, it only displays it if the other person has also installed it.
>>53708049 Rattata is shit. They're annoying, they are everywhere, every trainer in the beginning of the game uses them, you keep seeing them on the wild when you wanted to catch other pokemons. Rattatas are like pests, they are like Geodudes, but at least Geodudes stays in their own shitholes like in caves, Rattatas don't, you see them in the beginning of the game, you see them in the end of the game. Fuck Rattata!
At least Zubat, when properly taken care of with love and affection, evolves into a mighty badass Crobat immediately after evolving from a Golbat.
