Default language discussion

Hey everyone.

I do not know whether a thread with the same core already exists, but since languages, language structure in general included, are a big hobby of mine I started this. Just let roll your thoughts, questions and philosophies about languages.

I am dutch, and dutch is in my opinion a more than less interesting language, with little things that make it unique. At the moment I have some studies into Japanese, which is quite simple in grammar, but comes out really cool in a way.


A question of mine:
Is there anyone on this board who speaks Finnish? because I am really interested in the way agglutination plays a role there. How are its words stringed together?

Can you elaborate more on what makes Japanese cool for you? I'm no polyglot but I do enjoy learning about languages and how one can be different from another.

I'm pretty sure there are a few Finnish people on this board...or at least used to be.

The way they manage to create an interesting sentence construction with relatively simple basics. verb modifiers play a large role there. the sentences really flow, not like Italian, but the individual words are more connected than in a language like say Dutch. take the simple sentence senshuu, atarashii kuruma o kawanakatta. The syntax is really simple, but the sentence feels like "one".
