Ross;18;italian don't expect any witty or personal posts my life's boring. Ask me anything, if you want. My blog is probably multifandom i don't know i just reblog things. (trying to make a decent theme even though i don't know what i'm doing)
An (extremely simplified) map of mutually intelligible languages in Europe. Basically if you speak any of the languages of a single color, speaking other languages of that color will be much easier for you.
Well you do understand a bit of Icelandic when you know a Scandinavian language, it just didn’t evolve as the continental ones because it’s isolated (it basically stayed the same as in 13-14th century…)
if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao
I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
