If for some reason Frank's friend can't get involved, I have a cousin who could help. He just earned a PhD in Slavik languages.

Melania speaks 5 languages..that's 4 1/2 more than you could probably speak and comprehend. Keep your ignorance and Politics to yourself. Thanks.

John,

But 5 is only 1 more than 4!

1) English
2) Polish
3) Hungarian/Romanian
4) Yiddish (Galician/Germanic dialect)

The last 3 are all Balto/Slavic in origin and loosely compatible with Slovak.

If they yelled into the telephone slowly, loudly, and enunciated every syllable separately and distinctly, I might be able to understand them. Just don't be disappointed if you end up receiving a crate of soggy lokse!

What is Hungarian/Romanian? Romanian is a Latin-based language like French and Spanish. Hungarian is distantly related to Finnish and Estonian, and not to much else. How do you blend those two? I would have thought they were as different from each other as Basque and Hawaiian.

Gypsies (or "Roma" a term no self respecting gypsy uses..) blend them both. A linguistic artifact of a mobile lifestyle.

Thank you! I just learned something new, so already it's been a good day!

Don't you dare call Hungarians gypsies. I am an American/Hungarian and proud of both but calling me a gypsie or "Cigany" is the biggest insult to Hungarians that you can imagine. Don Watson wants to buy a part for a car in Slovania but needed translation for the language and I helped him with that and maybe others as well. This thread has gone from stupid politics to insults that need to stop. Go out and fiddle with your model T's and enjoy this sunday and not get off on degrading tangents that this thread was not designed for.
Frank

Frank,
No disrespect to you and yours!
Not all Hungarians were Gypsies. I dont know the breakdown, but I'm guessing it is a pretty small percentage of the overall population. To infer that every person hailing from that area is would (I guess?) be an insult to those who werent. My mother's family were what would be considered classical, caravan-based, migratory gypsies until they immigrated here and settled in Michigan in the last decade of the 19th century. It is with no small pride that we refer to ourselves as such.

I know that it is wired into our genetics. I may know that? But it is difficult for me to really understand the offending comments (either taken or given) because I have always been fascinated by other people'd cultures and ancestries. All of our individual histories have been shaped for thousands of years by other people's histories. So I feel we should all be interested in all those other cultures and histories as well as our own.

All that aside. While I do like a lot of our thread drifts, and I very much enjoy most of our OT threads (and drifts)? And as I said on a recent thread, I do believe those are a big reason why this forum is one of the best places on the internet. On SOME threads, it IS inappropriate to wander off much, and very inappropriate to get insulting to anyone in any way.
This thread began as a true OT, as a serious request for some very specialized help, and in a hobby-related pursuit. And (other than maybe a few lighthearted bumps to keep it visible), it should remain on its target.
As I said on the other thread. Where else on the web can one ask for such widespread and sometimes obscure help? And actually expect a good answer?
We, all of us on here regularly, are an amazing bunch of people.
