Do you know what national language means?
"A national language is a language (or language variant, e.g. dialect) that has some connection—de facto or de jure—with a people and the territory they occupy. The term is used variously. A national language may for instance represent the national identity of a nation or country."

We have two national languages you stupid cunt.

This. Whenever I suggested that Ireland is a Germanic nation in threads, I've been called a bad troll. It's strange that this Germanic identity is taboo even in the case of Scotland, which has had a thoroughly Germanic ethno-linguistic makeup for 300 years now - on the one hand, Celtic languages are everywhere marginalized, but on the other, British Celtic identity is lionised in equal measure. It must be true what Žižek said about colonialists being fascinated with keeping the cultures they've subdued intact and authentic.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Slavs, is in fact, Slovenes and Slavs, or as I've recently taken to calling it, masterrace and slavshits. Slavs are not an ethnic group unto itself, but merely a linguistic group made useful by based Slovenes, a vital group thanks to which Europe exists.
Many /int/ users mistake Slovenes for Slavs every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the Slovene group is often called "Slavs", and many of /int/olerants are not aware that it is basically the Slovenes, a Central European masterrace.
There really are Slavs, but Slovenes are no part of it. Slovenes are different, much more civilized and stuff. This is essential for you to realize. Slavs often include Slovenes, but basically it's Slavs with Slovenes added. All the so called "Kajkavian Slavs" are really Slovenes.

Ah, yes, the fact ~30% of the population literally shares their paternal ancestry with the population in the modern Russian-Ukranian border is irrelevant, right?

Yeah totally looks like Russia

2bh, Austria~Slovenia is a transitional region between the Celto-Germanic, Balkanic and Italic peoples/cultures, which shows in genetics, cultures and phenotypes. Lots of Dinarid and East Med influence, but barely any East Baltid as in Russia

Also "paternal ancestry" means shit, it can literally be 1/32768 (after only 15 generations, i.e. 300-500 years) with the rest being someone else

And yet no mention of our Slavic heritage, which is strange considering that Slovenian is the most grammatically conservative of the Slavic languages and that much of our vocabulary has counterparts in Russian ad Polish that are not shared with Serbo-Croatian. So the cultural bit at least does not hold.

Yes, you're an idiot. Pic realated, Russians, LITERALLY THE FARTHEST SLAVS full of fucking finnic admixture are still closer to us than Italians and Albanians and only slightly further than Austrians.

> Austria~Slovenia is a transitional region between the Celto-Germanic, Balkanic and Italic peoples/cultures

Icelandic is the most conservative Germanic language, yet they're genetically half Celtic (Scottish/Irish)
Meh I hold my point, you do generally share some things with Russia, Ukraine etc because being generally Eastern European, but overall you're still in most aspects closer to Austria, Hungary, Crotia, Serbia and Italy than to Russia

Are Nigerians, Chinese Singaporeans/Hong Kongers and Indians who speak English natively North-Western Europeans?

Our culture is really shit, it's just awful. I wish it could all be forgotten and we could just be acknowledged as part of the USA.

Nobody likes anything about this country, everyone is miserable. People live in a land with one of the highest standards of living on the planet and still emigrate because of the shitty culture, lack of identity and no association with whatever ideals we're supposed to have. It's just a disaster, we need somebody except the British to just take us over and absorb us into their culture. Then we'd be happy.

This PCA is old as fuck though, I linked you to a newer one a few posts back, https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9o3EYTdM8lQV1VNT2dzSUl0RDQ/edit
I even did some groupings with this PCA (pic related) but didn't include Slovenia because there were only 4 or so samples, but those fell within the northern Croatian/Hungarian/SE German cluster
Also we have both your and Russian immigrants here, and while the Russians look clearly East Asian-shifted, you look more like intermediates of Austro-Bavarians and Croats

Their language is received and thus not productive - it slavishly follows the standard set by the coloniser. Whereas our language in regards to Russian is a co-derivative from a common source, where all the old commonalities have been subjected to shifts specific to each of the two derivatives and may thus not even be plainly recognisable without scrutiny, such as are our occasional Slav threads where we have a lot of fun with Poles and Russians in finding common words, whereupon you are compelled to remember archaisms you picked up from high school lit. And that's the beauty of speaking an authentically native language, as /pol/ as this sounds.
>>
>>54089315

they're not "celtic" languages, Ireland was never settled by the celts. Gaelic is more accurate, as it's very close to scots Gaelic also, though that doesn't cover it's relation to Welsh(if somewhat distant) and Manx.
>>
>>54093267
Ledinsko ime. Maybe 40% of Slovenian surnames are in the mould of 'a natural feature of the plot of land your ancestors owned' + ending:

>Globočnik
ravine + affix
>Vrhovšek
hilltop + affix
>Globokar
ravine (or the depths) + affix
>>
>>54093611
You're losing the run of yourself here. They are Celtic languages because they're in the same family as the languages spoken by the Celts. Irish linguistically comes directly from a Celtic source, same with Welsh.
>>
>>54093586
>whereupon you are compelled to remember archaisms you picked up from high school lit
Wut, of course more distant language groups will have you look harder for cognates, like when comparing Germanic to Celtic, Italic or Slavic. However, if you want a more "organically grown" example, compare Indian language speakers to Basque ones. Indians, while being genetically half Australoid, still speak an IE language while Basques which are genetically very close to their surrounding people don't. Or Hungarians - genetically and culturally closer to South Slavs, West Slavs and to some extant Austrians - yet their language is closest to that of some mixed Eurasian people in Russian Siberia (Khanty/Mansy), even Finns are more distant ethno-culturally to them than the aforementioned groups
tl;dr, language doesn't determine ethnicity
>>
>>54093796
Quite similar to most common Polish surnames(which ends with -ski)

Like Kowalski
Kowal=Blacksmith + ski

In other words: "Yours is wrong but I linked you to a picture for ants even though it includes a total of 1(one) Slovenia sample but trust me lmao". Pic related is the single Slovenian one, closer to a fucking Ukranian ones than to an Austrian/German one.

Even if taking your word for it, which I'm not as you're retarded, your pic related contradicts you, you fucking idiot or do you see Croatian/Hungarian being closer to fucking N Italian or Russian?

>Also we have both your and Russian immigrants here, and while the Russians look clearly East Asian-shifted, you look more like intermediates of Austro-Bavarians and Croats
Just, lel, just with every new sentence you manage to get dumber, congratulations you fucking idiot. Stop pretending you ever meet a Slovenian

literally mingling a little hitler skull measurement with genetics at this point. Cause, yeah, totally dude, you're analogies are right and Croats, Austrians and Bavarians have this typical look to them, amirite? No, they don't you imbecile, if you were ever in Dalmatia and then in fucking Medzimurje you'd see the fucking difference in Croatia alone.
>>
>>54093196

You only think that because we only held onto the shitty remnants of our culture. A lot of what you're talking about is exactly because of the americanisation of our culture - partly in trying to be american, and partly because the US appropriated our culture and sold it back to us(Paddy's day etc.)

Irish culture is more than just Diddly-eye, rainy weather and drunken-ness. But unfortunately a lot of it's been forgotten.

>>54093963
That's an occupational surname that's effectively a patronyms. Occupational names are quite common as well Our Kowalski is Kovačič, then you have Mlinar or Mlinarič (Milner), Kolar/Kolarič (Wag(o)ner), etc.
>>
>>54094113
Thanks for explaining. :)

>>54094113
Kovač, not Kovačič. No suffix added.

Kovačič is a son of a blacksmith, not the occupation.

I've been to Dalmatia several times actually (which has an Italian flair), admittedly only drove through Zagreb region and Slovenia on my way there
But from that alone, to me landscape/architecture looks pretty much the same between Zagreb and Bavaria
And yes, you do not look like fucking Russians as much as you wish, period, pic related, average Russian look, I've never seen a Balkanite with such features. Maybe if you import 100000 Chinese and racemix with them then in 200 years you'll look like them

Russians are not fucking Karelians and Ingrians, that was never the heartland of Russia you retard. Did you even read the description of your pic you fucking idiot? I love your fucking cherry picking, it's hilarious.

> I've never seen a Balkanite with such features
Because there is no such thing as a balkanite, imbecile.

>Oh and I won't stop you from being a Putin- or USSR-boo, you probably have your reasons
Yes, literally proving you wrong is being a putin or ussrboo. You're an imbecile, that fucking simple. Your own maps prove you wrong and once you failed with that you resort to fucking personal analogies "I totally saw this and that and it's like this" because you're a god damn idiot.

Literal genetics prove you wrong.
