Re: A small mind in a large world that transcends understanding. mierin sedai - 27/01/2003 03:43:33 PM

The same person? saying both ei okse and en jente??

no. different dialects. close by, though

Do you think, if you had had been around Norway a lot, you could pin down someone to their town by their dialect??

sure. actually, they try to teach us that in school. and no, it is not as interesting as it sounds. you are taught in which parts they use palatalisation, in which parts there is something called "kløyvd infinitiv" etc. etc. I can hear somebody talk and at least pinpoint them to region, if not exact city. My parents are better at it, though.

I cannot think though, of why Norway has such dialectial diversity, and Austria has not. It certainly have some, but not to the magnitude of differences between valleys.

Hmm... might have something to do with us being subjected to a very abrupt change in common language under the danish. Don't know if Austria has anything like that?

I'll try and think of a way to phrase it that dosen't sound odd...

"hello VoLT, I don't speak Tibetan or anything, so I am not actually replying to your thread properly, but as you are there, do you know anything about the levels of dialectial diversity in Tibet"

LOL

Quite possibly.....

either that, or my grandparents have almost certainly been there. Possibly that....lol from somebody at any rate

they have? when? they did not come on a cruise-boat, did they?
