How To Say The Main Words In Different Languages

  1. 1. What is love ? Love is any of a number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection and attachment . The word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure (&quot;I loved that meal&quot;) to intense interpersonal attraction (&quot;I love my boyfriend&quot;). This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional states. As an abstract concept, love usually refers to a deep, ineffable feeling of tenderly caring for another person. Even this limited conception of love, however, encompasses a wealth of different feelings, from the passionate desire and intimacy of romantic love to the nonsexual emotional closeness of familial and platonic love to the profound oneness or devotion of religious love . Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts .
  2. 2. Afrikaans is an Indo-European language , derived from Dutch and thus classified as Low Franconian West Germanic . It is mainly spoken in South Africa and Namibia , with smaller numbers of speakers living in Botswana , Angola , Swaziland , Zimbabwe , Lesotho , Zambia , Australia , New Zealand , United States of America , Taiwan and Argentina <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ek het jou lief </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Albanian is a unique Indo-European language spoken by nearly 6 million people, primarily in Albania and Kosovo but also in other areas of the Balkans in which there is an Albanian population, including the west of the Republic of Macedonia , Montenegro , and southern Serbia . <ul><li>Te dua </li></ul>
  4. 4. Arabic is a Central Semitic language , thus related to and classified alongside other Semitic languages such as Hebrew and Syriac . In terms of speakers, Arabic is the largest member of the Semitic language family. It is spoken by more than 280 million people as a first language and by 250 million more as a second language . Most native speakers live in the Middle East and North Africa <ul><li>Ana behibak (to male) Ana behibek (to female) </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Armenian language is an Indo-European language spoken by the Armenian people . It is the official language of the Republic of Armenia as well as in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh . The language is also widely spoken by Armenian communities in the Armenian diaspora . It has its own script, the Armenian alphabet . <ul><li>Yes kez sirumen </li></ul>
  6. 6. Bambara , also known as Bamanankan in the language itself (literally &quot;the language of the Bamanan&quot;), is a language spoken in Mali by as many as six million people (including second language users). The differences between Bambara and Dioula are minimal. Dioula is a language spoken or understood by a lesser number of people in Burkina Faso , Côte d'Ivoire , and The Gambia . The Bambara language is the mother tongue of the Bambara ethnic group, numbering about 2,700,000 people, but serves also as a lingua franca in Mali (it is estimated that about 80% of the population speaks it as a first or second language). <ul><li>M’bi fe </li></ul>
  7. 7. Bengali or Bangla is an Indo-Aryan language of the eastern Indian subcontinent , evolved from the Magadhi Prakrit and Sanskrit languages. Bengali is native to the region of eastern South Asia known as Bengal , which comprises present day Bangladesh , the Indian state of West Bengal , southern Assam - also known as Barak Valley , and part of Tripura . With nearly 230 million total speakers, Bengali is one of the most spoken languages in the world. Bengali is the primary language spoken in Bangladesh and is the second most spoken language in India. Along with Assamese , it is geographically the most eastern of the Indo-Iranian languages and the most eastern of the Indo-European languages . <ul><li>Ami tomake bhalobashi </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Belarusian language , or Belorussian is the language of the Belarusian people and is spoken in Belarus and abroad, chiefly in Russia , Ukraine , and Poland .

  9. 9. The B isayans are an ethnolinguistic group in the Philippine Islands . They live in the Visayas , and some part of Mindanao but others have migrated elsewhere in the Philippines, including Luzon ; conversely, permanent migrants to the Visayas are also referred to as Visayans. Several sub-ethnolinguistic groupings in the Philippines comprise the Visayans: The largest of these groups are the speakers of Cebuano , Hiligaynon , and Waray-Waray . These languages, commonly referred to locally as indigenous dialects , are all classified as Austronesian (Malayo-Polynesian). <ul><li>Nahigugma ako </li></ul><ul><li>kanimo </li></ul>
  10. 10. Bulgarian Bulgarian is an Indo-European language , a member of the Slavic linguistic group.Bulgarian demonstrates several linguistic innovations that set it apart from all other Slavic languages except Macedonian , such as the elimination of case declension , the development of a suffixed definite article , the lack of a verb infinitive , and the retention and further development of the proto-Slavic verb system. Various verb forms exist to express unwitnessed, retold, and doubtful action. Estimates of the number of people around the world who speak Bulgarian fluently range from about 9 million to 12 million <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Obicham te </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Cambodian . More than 90% of its population is of Khmer origin and speaks the Khmer language , the country's official language. The remainder include Chinese , Vietnamese, Cham and Khmer Loeu . The Khmer language is a member of the Mon-Khmer subfamily of the Austroasiatic language group. French, once the language of government in Indochina , is still spoken by some older Cambodians. French is also the language of instruction in some schools and universities that are funded by the government of France. Cambodian French , a remnant of the country's colonial past, is a dialect found in Cambodia and is sometimes used in government. However, in recent decades, many younger Cambodians and those in the business-class have favoured learning English. In the major cities and tourist centers, English is widely spoken and taught at a large number of schools due to the overwhelming number of tourists from English-speaking countries. Even in the most rural outposts, however, most young people speak at least some English, as it is often taught by monks at the local pagodas where many children are educated. <ul><ul><li>Soro lahn nhee ah </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Cantonese Chinese after the Mandarin pronunciation is a primary branch of Chinese . The name &quot;Cantonese&quot; is also commonly used in a narrower sense for Standard Cantonese , the prestige dialect of Cantonese in the broader sense. The exact number of Cantonese speakers is unknown due to a lack of statistics and census data. The areas with the highest concentration of speakers are Guangdong and parts of Guangxi in southern mainland China , Hong Kong and Macau ; with Cantonese-speaking minorities in Southeast Asia , Canada , and the United States . <ul><li>Ngo oiy ney a </li></ul>

  14. 14. Cheyenne The Cheyenne of Montana and Oklahoma speak the Cheyenne language , known as tsêhésenêstsestôtse in the Cheyenne language, with only a handful of vocabulary items different between the two locations; the Cheyenne alphabet contains fourteen letters.

  15. 15. Chichew is a language of the Bantu language family widely spoken in south-central Africa. The prefix chi- means &quot;the language of&quot; so that &quot;Chichewa&quot; means &quot;language of the Chewa tribe&quot;, and hence the language is also known simply as Chewa . <ul><li>Ndimakukonda </li></ul>
  16. 16. Corsican ( Corsu or Lingua Corsa ) is a continuum of Romance languages spoken and written on the islands of Corsica ( France ) and northern Sardinia ( Italy ), alongside French and Italian , which are the official languages. Corsu is the traditional native language of the Corsican people, and was long the sole language of the island, which was acquired by France in 1768. In 1990, more than two centuries later, nearly all Corsicans were fluent in French, usually as a first language. <ul><li>Ti tengu caru (to male) Ti tengu cara ( to female ) </li></ul>
  17. 17. A creole language , or simply a creole , is a stable language that originates seemingly as a nativized pidgin . While it is arguable that creoles share more grammatical similarities with each other than with the languages they phylogenetically derive from, no theory for explaining creole phenomena has been universally accepted. The relationship between pidgins and creoles and their similarities means that the distinction is not clear-cut and the variety of phenomena that arise to create pidgins and creoles are not well understood . Likewise, efforts to articulate grammatical features (or sets of features) that are exclusive to creoles have been unsuccessful thus far. <ul><li>Mi aime jou </li></ul>
  18. 18. The Croatian language is a South Slavic language which is used primarily in Croatia , by Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina , by Croatian minorities in some neighbouring countries, in the Italian region of Molise , and parts of the Croatian diaspora. <ul><li>Volim te </li></ul>

  20. 20. Danish is one of the North Germanic languages (also called Scandinavian languages), a sub-group of the Germanic branch of the Indo-European languages . It is spoken by around 6 million people, mainly in Denmark ; the language is also used by the 50,000 Danes in the northern parts of Schleswig-Holstein in Germany where it holds the status of minority language. Danish also holds official status and is a mandatory subject in school in the Danish territories of Greenland and the Faroe Islands , which now enjoy limited autonomy. In Iceland , Danish is also taught as a compulsory foreign language in schools. There are also Danish language communities in Argentina , the U.S. and Canada . <ul><li>Jeg Elsker Dig </li></ul>
  21. 21. Dutch is a West Germanic language spoken by over 22 million people as a native language , and over 5 million people as a second language . Most native speakers live in the Netherlands , Belgium , and Suriname , with smaller groups of speakers in parts of France , Germany and several former Dutch colonies . It is closely related to other West Germanic languages (e.g., English , West Frisian and German ) and somewhat more remotely to the North Germanic languages . <ul><li>Ik hou van jou </li></ul>
  22. 22. English is a West Germanic language that originated in Anglo-Saxon England . As a result of the military, economic, scientific, political and cultural influence of the British Empire during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and of the United States since the late 19th century, it has become the lingua franca in many parts of the world It is used extensively as a second language and as an official language in Commonwealth countries and many international organizations . <ul><li>I love </li></ul><ul><li>you </li></ul>
  23. 23. Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language in the world. Its name derives from Doktoro Esperanto, the pseudonym under which L. L. Zamenhof published the first book detailing Esperanto, the Unua Libro , in 1887. The word esperanto means &quot;one who hopes&quot; in the language itself. Zamenhof's goal was to create an easy and flexible language that would serve as a universal second language to foster peace and international understanding. Esperanto has had continuous usage by a community estimated at between 100,000 and 2 million speakers for over a century, and approximately one thousand native speakers However, no country has adopted the language officially . Today, Esperanto is employed in world travel, correspondence, cultural exchange, conventions, literature, language instruction, television, and radio broadcasting. <ul><li>Mi amas vin </li></ul>
  24. 24. Estonian is the official language of Estonia , spoken by about 1.1 million people in Estonia and tens of thousands in various émigré communities. It is a Finno-Ugric language and is closely related to Finnish . <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ma armastan sind </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  25. 25. Ethiopian Semitic (also known as Ethiopian, Ethiosemitic or Ethiopic) is a language group, which together with Old South Arabian , forms the Western branch of the South Semitic languages. Today, the name Ethiopian can be considered a misnomer, as the North languages are also found in Eritrea , with two of them being exclusively used there; however, the term came into use before Eritrea had separated from Ethiopia. Scientific research on Ethiopian Semitic is carried out in the fields of linguistics and Ethiopian Studies . <ul><li>Afgreki’ </li></ul>

These two countries count the bulk of speakers of Inuit language variants, although about 7,500 Alaskans speak Inuit dialects out of a population of over 13,000 Inuit. The Eskimo languages have a few hundred speakers in Russia. In addition, an estimated 7,000 Greenlandic Inuit live in European Denmark, but this is the largest group outside of Canada and Greenland.
