When you first check in how many of your target languages (and those high on the hitlist) it is dubbed and subtitled
on the dvd.

When those thieves wanting you to pay so much only for original and one target language make you angry.


And when - worse yet - they are in the wrong target language. "What? You could get subtitles and captions
in all these Asian languages, but not in both national languages of the country you're selling this DVD in..?"

When you get very annoyed that a major internet retailer doesn't display all the language options on DVDs, forcing you to attempt to find a copy in a physical shop to check before buying. [Something that's becoming more and more difficult in the UK.]

I know the feeling. Amazon is usually pretty good about that, though. You can check their website before you buy elsewhere.

How about when: you refuse to watch purchase or even watch a movie unless it is dubbed or at least subtitled in your target language.

You are a language geek when you need to pick up a book or find some kind of way to improve your language skill either after, during or before work/school. Nothing can beat the feeling of having learned another few phrases today.

When it's election time in your country, you don't vote (because you have a huge language
exam the day after); but when the consulate of Italy sends you a letter giving you the
chance to vote for the parliament of a nation you're only citizen of because you have an
Italian great great grandfather, you get really enthusiastic and Google each and every of
the candidates before submitting your vote. And then you keep the documents you can keep
as if they were golden, not because they are all that important but because they are in
ITALIAN, people.

...thanks to the polyglot community, you're familiar with many more languages and their scripts than you'd actually study.

I stumbled on Veps as a Wikipedia language about 2 weeks ago, and it was close enough to Finnish that I had a great time looking through it. A different time, I was looking at something in Georgian--not because I understand it but because I think the script is pretty.
