How would you know without understanding the language? Or any language beyond (Australian) English, for that matter?

>>53866806

You don't even have to shout, really. Speaking in a cool and collected manner while using the formal pro-nouns comes across as much more critical and intimidating than screaming and shouting... Screaming and shouting is something children do. Not resorting to that, but instead saying polite and formal is more more fitting for those in a position of authority or any kind of superiority.

And what's even better, you can omit the personal pronoun altogether and just write was there/were there (effectively had been there = bil sem/bila sem/bila sva/bili smo tam), and know both gender and number of the speaker (or his party) from that alone. I assume it's the same in Czech.

Not mandated, at least not in Dutch society. But fitting in some contexts, especially if you don't want to come across as a savage. Sort of like holding your fork in the correct hand while eat...Maybe I should think of another example for an American, but you get what I mean, I hope?

>You're justifying it by an appeal to tradition, which can be used arbitrarily and for just about anything.

In this case it's about being polite and coming across as correct. If you don't want to be percieved as polite and correct, you can choose to forego formalities.. It's still a free country, anon.

I also fail to see how being polite makes one a 'literal cuck'..

German is not representative of gendered I-E languages. Slavic and Latin language have much more regular rules regarding word endings in regards to gender.

Dutch is the worst. Nobody, including us, really knows what word is what gender and why. We'll just know when someone is doing it wrong... It's like a huge joke all Dutch speakers are in on and which all people trying to learn Dutch as an additional language are the victim of.

>>53867181
I hate to break it to ya, hoss, but using the word normie itself makes you abnormal.
>>
>>53867643
I think that uneducated Americans capitalizing nouns that they feel are important comes from their having to deal with so many brand names to the degree where the brand name substitutes the common noun (I'm having some Cappy instead of I'm having some juice), and the more important nouns start being treated as though they were brand names themselves, since brand is important and a mark of differentiation from the other guy who doesn't use brand that are as expensive. So you can thus often see Americans capitalizing words such as Life, Family or Sports.
