Catalan - Català

Postby ILuvEire » Tue 21 Apr 2009 12:46 am

Hola a tots!
El català parla en Catalunya, forma part de l'espagna i la frança. Té 9.9 mil parlants, però penso que totes no estan els parlants de les llengues maternes.

De tota manera, algú l'estudia?

Hey guys!
Catalan is spoken in Catalunya, part of Spain and France. It has 9.9 mil speakers, but I think that they aren't all first language speakers.

Anyway, anyone else studying it?

I want to learn (at least try) it sometime, but don't know when, currently Dutch and/or Limburgs is/are at the top of my list. ;) Bu who knows, I may start it in a week or so. (:

I wanted to mention also, that what I have at the top is probably quite off.

Sí, jo l'estudia des de fa molts anys. M'estranya que el consideres com a llengua en perill quan té tants de parlants i és idioma oficial en Espanya (sota tants nomes) amb el ple suport dels governs de tres Comunitats Autònomes.

Do Catalans still use Oc for yes?

It's news to me that they ever did, but I see Moll i Alcover's dictionary shows hoc in such mediaeval sources as Ramon Llull and Jordi de Sant Jordi (for whom it may have already represented an archaicism). Also in this charming couplet: "Amics fins als hocs, però a la bossa no m'hi tocs!"

I agree. I think it never was used for yes, but maybe there is some old text where it was. Catalan was used in literature together with Provençal, which was considered more suitable for poetry, during the Middle Age.
