お大事に
get well soon

彼氏は、どこ?なんかね、葬式があったから、しょうがないけどさ、もう11時なのに、メールや電話でも連絡されていない。行けないなら、連絡してくださいって、いつも俺に言われたことなんだから、知るべきなんじゃないか…
where the fuck is my boyfriend. OK, he had a funeral to go to today, so that can't be helped, but it's already 11 and he hasn't emailed or telephoned or contacted me in any way. I so often tell him to contact me if he can't come... so I'd hope he'd know that by now...

Du har nog rätt nog.

Det verkar vara en grundläggande skillnad som konstigt nog är konstigt frånvarande från engelskan. Detsamma är närvarande i polskan: „znać” mot „wiedzieć”. Det är jag som sabbade genom att minnas ”känna” och glömma ”veta”.
Jag tog det (delvis) från linguoboys postning. Det har flera träffar på Google, så jag fel antog av misstag att det är rätt.

Notice: this comes from a Swede born and grown up outside of Sweden. Some errors may have slipped through.

Det var bra rättat; jag skulle bara lägga till att "finns" passar bättre här än "är närvarande". (Men jag kan inte förklara varför.)
It was well corrected. I would just add that "finns" suits better here than "är närvarande" (though I can't explain why).

Ja, det har du nog rätt i.
Yeah, you're probably right about that.

Merci, Finlay.

Je suis en voie de guérison. Et je reçois des amis belges chez moi ce week-end.



Thanks, Finlay.

I'm on the mend. And I'm entertaining Belgian friends here this weekend.

Napisałem, że nie jest nic co można robić, i nikt już nic nie pisze tutaj? Nie wiedziałem, że jestem taki wpłyowy.
J'ai écrit, quil y a rien qu'on peut faire, et personne plus n'écrit rien ici? Je ne savais, que je suis tellement influent.
Ik heb geschreven, dat er niks is dat men doen kann, en niemen schrijft hier maar iets? Ik heb niet gewist, dat ik zo invloedrijk ben.

I wrote that there's nothing one can do, and noone writes anything here anymore? I didn't know that I'm that influential. ;-)

Oui, franchement c'est bizarre. Les gens se sont disparus. :(

Yes, frankly it's weird. People have disappeared.

I am on the coast of North Carolina for Spring Break. We have an AirBnb on the beach, it's beautiful.

*"heb geschreven" is possible, but the simple past seems better to me here.
**"niks" is informal/spoken language only, in writing you'd use "niets"

Salyangozlarıma yem verdım.
I have fed my snails.

Açtılar.
They were hungry.

Şimdi onların yeme kaşımalarını duyuyorum.
Now I'm listening to the scratching sounds they make when they eat.

¿ Quieres decir que el AirBnB es hermoso ? ¿ O que el paisaje en general es hermoso ? Si es el secundo, pienso que deberías escribir "c'est vraiment beau".

Are you saying that the AirBnB is beautiful? Or that the overall landscape is beautiful? If it's the latter, I think you should write "c'est vraiment beau" instead.

Non, je faisais référence à l'AirBnB, c'est pourquoi j'ai utilisé le pronom. Parfois je fais des trucs vraiment bizarres en français, tels que "se dispparaître." Je sais bien que ce verbe n'est pas pronominal, mais je le fais quand même. xD J'en conclure donc que tu es francophone?

No, I was referencing the AirBnB, that's why I used the pronoum. Sometimes I do really weird things in French such as "se dispparaître." I know well that this verb is not pronominal, but I do it anyway. xD So I gather you are Francophone?

Sí. Se me fue de la lengua.

Era precisamente el objetivo de mi texto 《Arthur the Rat》: yo quería saber si es posible adivinar de dónde soy con mi acento. Cuando fue en los Estados Unidos, algunas personas pensaban que acabé de Inglaterra.


Yeah. Cat's out of the bag.

Actually, that was the point of my reading of "Arthur the Rat": I was wondering if you guys could tell where I come from based on my accent. When I went to the US, I managed to fool a few people into thinking I came from England.

Amerikaner mit einem falschen ausländischen Akzent zu täuschen ist nicht eine besonders schwierige Aufgabe.
It's not a particularly hard task to fool Americans with a fake foreign accent.

Manchmal bin ich gefragt worden, ob ich Europäer sei, nur weil ich sehr deutlich gesprochen habe.
I've sometimes been asked if I was European just because I was speaking very clearly.

Well, I thought that to speak a foreign language as well as a native speaker was difficult.

Somehow I picture speaking a standard variety like GA or RP clearly to be much easier than speaking a non-standard variety in a native-like fashion. I would be more impressed by a non-native speaker speaking like someone who grew up in southeastern Wisconsin than by one speaking in very clear RP.

Precisamente, trato de hablar con un acento un poquito diferente del estándar. Cuando imito un acento británico, trato de hacer un acento de Londres in lugar de la Pronunciación Aceptada. Cuando imito un acento estadounidense, apunto a un acento del Norte del Medio Oeste (con el Desplazamiento Vocálico de las Ciudades del Norte).

Precisely, I prefer to try to use an accent that's slightly different from the standard. When I put on a British accent, I try to do a slight London-Estuary accent instead of the Received Pronunciation. When I imitate a US accent, I'd like to aim for a North-Midwest accent (with the Northern Cities Vowel Shift).

The problem with trying to speak a non-standard variety is it is easy to get wrong if one does not actually live there and is paying attention. E.g. the NCVS is not the only thing going on here in southeastern Wisconsin - and even with the NCVS the exact form it takes varies based on where someone grew up and how old they are. Rather there is a whole laundry list of things, which I am not going to list here, that one needs to have to sound like one is actually from here. So if one just speaks GA but with the NCVS added on top you will probably come out sounding like someone who is from somewhere else but moved to the Inland North and picked up the NCVS but did not fully adopt any particular variety from there.

*1) That somehow sounds wrong to me - it would be okay if you talked about your plans ("Ich bleibe heute im Haus"), but not when you're talking about what you're doing at the moment. I'd go for "Ich sitze zuhause" or "Ich bin zuhause".
*2) There are several ways to treat articles in book titles etc; I prefer to do it this way.
