    So...do you think that the hawaiian language or the french language is more pretty? I just got the movie Lilo and Stitch and I love the sound track, the Hawaiian language is so pretty. I'd love to learn it someday. Course- I'd love to learn to Hula (sp?) dance too! [​IMG]

    A hui hou!

    I have been stationed over here a little over a year and the music is growing on me a bit. I have three more years here in paradise.

    Aloha Bruddah!

    Amazing how a language "sounds" like something, while you may actually be saying "Take out the trash"!

    </font>
    • Hawaian sounds gibberish to me - not pretty at all.</font>
    • French sounds "sexy", like I should be speaking it softly in the bedroom.</font>
    • Chinese sounds "whiney", like a petulant child.</font>
    • German and Russian sounds "harsh" and militaristic.</font>
    • Spanish sounds like "I live in America but won't take time to learn your language".</font>
    • Polish sounds, well, "polish".</font>
    Just singing "Adeste Fideles" this Yuletide, so will opt for the lilt and flow of LATIN. Or maybe the heavy brogue of Celtic tongues . . .
    HEY, you ASKED for opinions! :rolleyes:

    I've been told by Hawaiian native speakers that, had it not been for tourism, the language would have died out long ago.
