That would save me a good deal of effort earning it! :D

But Japanese wouldn't be that interesting anymore. Much of its charm comes from it's writing system.

Really? All of Japanese's charm, for me, comes from the awesome verbs. :D

For shame! You should study it again, it's darling. :)

Actually, I'm being the biggest hippocrite there is, I haven't studied it for a couple months. :oops:

To me, Japanese is plenty interesting, kanji or not. The grammar alone is both enough to make me want to learn it and to despise it completely. Incidentally, the same could be said of Arabic, which is the only language I've learned worth a damn.
العربية * 中文 * English * Français * Русский * Português * Español * हिन्दी/اردو * Deutsch * 日本語

Why not try Serbian, it's a challenge! C:

Anyway, now that you have mentioned Arabic, the writing script of a language that I am constructing has some similarity to Arabic. Once it is done to a reasonable extent I'll post it here! :D

And as for Japanese... yes... Kanji or not, you say... though reality is WITH unfortunately for me and a few others who I know, but since I basically learn Japanese from anime I don't get to do much reading, but rather a lot of listening! :D

I know, I know.. many linguists just hate the idea of someone learning a language by listening to it, 'coz when ever someone says that he had learned a language through TV, he usually sounds like a guy/girl from a TV show or some series that the linguist had also watched! :p
