El espanol-por Saul

El espanol es uno de los idiomas mas dificiles del mundo y lo hablan 600,000,000 de habitantes del globo terraqueo. Eso significa que hay mucha diversidad y complejidad en relacion a lo que se habla en este idioma. Toda Latino America, Centro America, Sur America y el Caribe habla espanol pero cada pais, nacion tiene su convenciones con respecto a este idioma tan rico y variado, tan lleno de expresiones adjetivales que nos caracteriza. Por ejemplo yo, Saul, que soy de Puerto Rico, pues, en mi pais, el espanol es bien respetado y se habla con propiedad y correccion. Quien no habla este idioma asi, pues, no es respetado por lo que dice o sostiene. A mi me gusta esta lengua muchisimo pues es mi lengua materna, sin embargo me gusta el ingles ya que lo estudie en la universidad y para mi keep a conversation in English is very easy. I know lots of people have my facility to talk, that's is known as phonemic awareness, anyway, a mi tambien me gusta un poco el frances ya que es una lengua romance que se relaciona mucho con el espanol. Es decir para una persona que habla espanol se le hace facil aprender frances, aleman, ingles, italiano ya que son lenguas romances, en cambio los idiomas asiaticos como el japones, el chino, etc. son idiomas complicados para nosotros los caribenos.

yo creo que lo dificil se crea en la mente, lo mismo puedes aprender a hablar ruso que ingles siempre y cuando lo hagas con verdaderas intenciones.

Conozco a muchas personas que no aprenden ingles aun cuando memorizan los libros. Y creo yo que es por que no quieren hacerlo en verdad. Hay que aprender a pensar en el idioma que se esta aprendiendo para poder aprenderlo. Suena confuso pero es cierto.

I think languages, like music, are easier for some people than for others.

To: Gus and Lazarus
Thanks for sending such nice comments which I've already known. Remember that much of that information you are talking about is on books. And I do have all the information related which the birth and development of the English and Spanish language. So I don't want to argue with you about this. This was not the purpose of my message in essence! Sorry if you misunderstood me! I know you know the subject very well. Good for you. The purpose of my message, like I said, was to bring friends to my site. If you want to be my friend, welcome. If you don't want, that will be okay! God bless you and keep up the good work!!!

The first book about Spanish grammar was witen in Spain in 1492.

"If there is such a thing as standard Spanish, this book seeks to reflect the fact that today rather than being purely Penninsular it is intercontinetal and especifically American, but also that regional variations does not signify that it is undergoing a process of profund desentegration."
taken from the book,Spanish An essential Grammar by Peter T. Bradley and Ian Mackenzie. first edition 2004.

And yet, they (the Romans) managed to occupy a large amount of English real estate (as far north as Hadrian's wall) while their linguistic influence on English seems to have been either by way of French (i.e. indirect) or during/after the Renaissance.

Yes, that's an interesting question. Why did Latin spread so little among the Celts, Picts, and others living in Britain from about 40 BCE until the Romans left in the mid-400's CE? There was certainly plenty of time for it to spread. I'm sure somebody (probably several somebodies) has written about this.


I'd like to say that the Celts just had no talent for languages but since (under the right circumstances) I would lay claim to a Celtic heritage, I'll refrain. Perhaps,Eddy, (with a more English point of view) will offer a comment.

Nor is German which is also a Germanic language (surprise!).

That's because the Romans, try as they might, were never able to conquer the Germanic tribes (the Visigoths and Ostrogoths, as well as the Franks, Vandals, etc.) Those same tribes eventually sacked Rome (a number of times) and contributed to its fall. This is why modern German has so few Latin-derived words. The Gauls (in what is today France), on the other hand, were completely conquered, which is why modern French is relatively close to Latin.

Spanish is regarded by most people who have studied many world languages as one of the easiest ones to learn, along with English, and as far as I know, there are not 600 million people speaking it, but something between 300 and 400 million.

By the way, English is NOT a Romance language (despite the huge amount of Romance vocabulary that uses), and "español" is written with ñ.

I have a Taiwanese friend who can speak seven languages. My dad speaks Russian fluently and can read ancient Greek and Hebrew. In my opinion, Spanish is one of the easier languages for English speakers to learn, because of the similarities in sentences structure and the existence of many cognates. Of course, that doesn't mean it's easy . . .
