Extremely funny this topic. I´m laughing and I don´t know when can I stop.

My contribution:

You are a language nerd when you discuss with a friend in your natie tongue and there´s a sentence differently understood by both of you and you think: "There wouldn´t have been this misunderstanding if we had spoken French".


I post in my blog about this topic. You can read it (in Spanish)HERE

... in Spanish? Enough proof, anybody who in an Anglophone discussion gives a link to an explanation in Spanish and assumes that people can read it must be a qualified language nerd.

That's Right, Iversen.

I thought that Spanish lerners can practice their target language reading a post about "how to be a nerd language". The content is alost the same, so they can compare the texts, and whose are really nerd language can critizise end evaluate my translation

I figure a lot of us on this forum, if not an outright majority, would be able to read that Spanish at some level. I certainly understood it pretty well. After all, "if you speak many languages, people will just assume you speak perfect Spanish anyway."

Well, I don't speak French to my wife, and I have no maid to whom I can ein bisschen Deutsch sprechen - but the bourgeoisie in Denmark once did it (or something very similar - maybe some of my fellow Danes can help me out on this one?).

My wife and I do speak a strange mix of Danish sprinkled with English phrases now and then, however... perhaps that is a little bit nerdy, huh? :-)

... I was genuinely disappointed to discover that my computer couldn't correctly display all the IPA characters and stayed up all night trying to make them appear.
