I'm really hard-pressed to come up with a beautiful Dutch word :duh: .

xD I feel you. The words that I can think of in Dutch are actually all shared with english =O

For lulz I'd say Angstschreeuw for the funny reason that few here can probably pronounce it xD

In english I would go for pandemonium, a word for chaos in the organized form of all five vowels.


I think I could, but I have no way to write it here.

As long as the dark foundation of our nature, grim in its all-encompassing egoism, mad in its drive to make that egoism into reality, to devour everything and to define everything by itself, as long as that foundation is visible, as long as this truly original sin exists within us, we have no business here and there is no logical answer to our existence.

And since you don't believe you are sick, there can be no cure.

edit: i remembered Dragostea din Tei for some reason. Isn't Dragoste the word for love in Romanian?
That may be a verb. Romanian is a Romance language though, if I'm not mistaken.


I'm quite surprised you didn't pick Bier as your favorite word :duh:.

Situationally it shares some properties with vowels but it is certainly not classified as a vowel in itself.

Indeed - most can't even remotely pronounce Chyros, let alone angstschreeuw 8| . Dutch has to be one of the coarsest-sounding languages around ;) .

God forbid that French considers h as a vowel as well.

Why in hell did I decide to take this as my foreign language escapes me. Too late stopping now though, second year in, and I need 2-4 years of a foreign language to get into a decent college.

What on earth are you babbling about? H is not a vowel in French, and Y is a vowel in French, Spanish and Italian at least. Next time you'd better check what you're saying before making such posts 8|

As for the most beautiful word, well I don't see any beautiful word in Arabic, so I'll say a French one instead : Harmonie 8|

That's because you don't pronounce the H in that word (I find it funny that it applies to the word I picked as well (harmonie))
You can't possibly think that pronouncing it "Le hiver" would sound natural. In fact, it was done to facilitate the pronunciation.

Tell it to the U.S., the teachers here seem to think it's a vowel, just because it is silent.

In danish (where Kadavre is plural, Kadaver is singular) we pronounce it: Kah-da...da...oh screw this! Danish is impossible to describe.

I understand why people say it's the hardest language ever.
