It made me want to improve it. How the hell do I grasp that grammar with self study? Any good resources?

Hey German speakers...

The word "Warnmärchen" means "warning tales". Related to it, I have "Schreckmärchen". It's listed as "or" so I assume the meaning is the same, but do you know if there's any difference? Or at least, what the word literally means? Google is leaving the first part as Schreck.

Wanted to came here to post about a language I heard today...
I first thought it was a Scandinavian lang, than I heard Weiss ! I knew it was neither German nor Dutch...
It was Afrikaans ... So I was not that far :)

Afrikaans is said to be the easiest language for English speakers to learn.

Nope, that would be Frisian. The closest cousin to English.

If I could ever get the time I’d surely love to learn Dutch. It’s said to be closer to English than any other Germanic language and actually has utility when compared to Frisian, since it’s spoken in Netherlands, Belgium and South Africa.

I had started learning it on my own a few months ago but then became too busy and after that I became more interested in German again. It didn't seem too hard although I've forgotten much of it now.

the oldest poem ever in Maltese... 15Cent
it sounds Arabic...
Today's Maltese doesn't sound like that at all
U l-Kotra qamet f’daqqa – u għajtet: “Jien Maltija!
Miskin min ikasbarni, - miskin min jidħak bija!”
U l-Kotra għanniet f’daqqa – u semmgħet ma’ l-irjieħ

However it sounds closer to today's Maltese than the English at the time sounds close to today's English, I think.

EDIT: or from the early years of Maltese, at least. I thought the Kantilena was older than the 15th century but I was wrong. :P

Here's some Old English while we're at it. :mrgreen:

Fæder ure þu þe eart on heofonum;

Si þin nama gehalgod

to becume þin rice

gewurþe ðin willa

on eorðan swa swa on heofonum.

urne gedæghwamlican hlaf syle us todæg

and forgyf us ure gyltas

swa swa we forgyfað urum gyltendum

and ne gelæd þu us on costnunge

ac alys us of yfele soþlice


Recognise anything (without cheating :P)?
