With Slovene spelling:
rielajz it.

Are you sure it should be 'it'?
How would you differentiate between the English "it" and "eat"?


Well, Slovene orthography isn`t really suited for rendering English phonetics, is it? ;) It has a short vowel, so I would write i in Slovene transcription, I used a 'double i' for 'eating'.

American English pronunciation with Finnish phonetic spelling:

The quick brown father jumps over the lazy shepard dog, whilst eating lemon chocolate with stones. A young lady is singing in the church now, standing near a large window, although she can't be bothered to realize it.

Tö kvik braun faatör tsamps ouvör tö leizi shepörd daag, vailst iiting lemön tsaklit vit stouns. Ö jang leidi is singing in tö tsörts nau, ständing niör ö laarts vindou, oltou shii käänt bii baatörd tu riölaiz it.

Note that the ch (as in "champion"), g (as in "large") and j (as in "jam") sounds don't exist in Finnish, and so are all written with a "ts" consonant cluster. ʃ is "sh", even though š is also possible (it is very rare, though, and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of Finns themselves didn't know that š and ž are officially part of the Finnish orthography). Similarly, the ð and þ sounds are written with a simple "t". "W" is part of the Finnish alphabet, but I decided to spell it with a "v" as it looks more Finnish. ;)

Edit: Oh my, there were three other Finnish versions before me... Well, to make this post not a repetition of previous stuff, I humbly offer a Japanese version:

ザ・クウィック・ブラウン・ファーザー・ジ ャンプズ・オーバー・ザ・レイジー・ドッグ 、ワイルスト・イーツィング・レモン・チョ コレート・ウィット・ストーンズ。ア・ヤン グ・レイディー・イズ・シンギング・イン・ ザ・チャーチ・ナウ、スタンディング・ニア ・ア・ラージ・ウィンドー、オルソウ・シー ・キャント・ビー・バザード・ツ・リアライ ズ・イット。

Za kuwikku buraun faazaa janpuzu oobaa za reijii doggu, wairusuto iitingu remon chokoreeto witto sutoonzu. A yangu reidii izu shingingu in za chaachi nau, sutandingu nia a raaji windoo, orusou shii kyanto bii bazaado tsu riaraizu itto.

My attempt at Danish. It's done in my native Australian accent. A couple of notes:

-The obvious corrosponding Danish vowel to that in "Stones" or "window" is "o". But that Danish "o" is much closer to the American pronounciation of it, and I don't feel quite right about using it to represent my accent. Therefore I've marked the vowel like this: "ò" to remind everyone the pronounciation is different. Then you can choose between the danish vowel or the aussie one.

-In Danish the letter "d" is actually used to represent "ð". Although in Danish, words never begin with "ð" nor is it found next to other constanants as in "although"
This makes it a bit difficult to pronounce my sentences if you are going for Danish pronounciation. (At least for me as a non native anyway).
Also Normally when you see d's at the beginning of a word or next to a constanant you would assume it is actually a D not a ð. In this instance we have the English sentence right there to tell us when it should be a ð, But otherwise we would need to work out a new way to distinguish ð from d.

-W and Z although in the Danish alphabet, are still pronounced V and S respectively, so which one is used is not of the greatest importance really.

Levi, what about your TAC log?

I decided I really didn't like the pressure of keeping a log of my studies, so I quit. I find I'm more productive when I just allow myself to do what I want to without having to worry about what I'm going to write about it.
