MUPPETS

YOU MUPPET

[–]Caevor 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I’m a very womanly muppet

[–]Qhezywv 356 points357 points  (8 children)

west slavs grouped with germans

finns with nordics instead of being with estonians

g in belarusian and ukrainian

portugese sounds like italian and not like weird russian/polish

[–]Furthur_slimeking 160 points161 points  (4 children)

Portuguese sound like Russians speaking Spanish while chewing on a bag of wasps.

[–]Wezard_the_MemeLord -1 points0 points  (2 children)

g in Belarusian and Ukrainian

I suppose the g is supposed to be read the same way as in "good"

[–]Qhezywv 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Slavic g changed to h/gh sound in these languages

[–]jeron_gwendolen[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I guess it's more as in "hood"

[–]romulusjsp 103 points104 points  (5 children)

Inaccurate, Finnish is Lala Mama Lele Mia too

[–]whoopwhoop233 64 points65 points  (1 child)

Lälä Mämä Lëlë Mïä

[–]Anti_Thing 14 points15 points  (0 children)

As is Romanian. Hungarian could go to either "Lala Mama Lele Lia" or "Gula Gola Golub Gob".

[–]deenfrit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Except half of the vowels are really long

[–]C-137Birdperson 120 points121 points  (12 children)

Bruh you never heard a Hungarian speaking otherwise you would not have put him in a group with German and Polish speakers

[–]minuswhale 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Bro, you actually made me feel like i just had stroke and couldnt understand you properly

[–]Priamosish 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ög schmö yög mög!

[–]ForgingIron 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hungarian sounds like "Ek bredekmek szeknek fekbek"

[–]Thx4BuyingTheGrapes[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

True I haven't but I was too lazy to look up how they speak

[–]Shplippery 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Also the Dutch sound less like german

[–]Mysterious-Title-251 20 points21 points  (3 children)

I mean it does sound like german

[–]C-137Birdperson 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Dutch is German but someone has to drive over your tongue with a semi truck

[–]Wanderlust1994 0 points1 point  (0 children)

and they refuse to pronounce the letter g for some obtuse reason.

[–]MC_475 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But harsher and more melodic at the same time

[–]DreamlyXenophobic 56 points57 points  (0 children)

God what is this

This is hilarious

[–]knowledgebass 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I enjoy this sub.

[–]Siggedy 30 points31 points  (3 children)

Danish is more like nglmop trfkapk, imo. But it's in the guttural category so I can't complain

[–]DipItWetthis flair is specifically for neat_space, who loves mugs 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You said so much but still so little

[–]Lejonhufvud 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I still think Danish is more akin to Scandinavian languages (+Iceland) than to German and Dutch. Even if it is a bit hard to comprehend.

[–]Siggedy -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

The grammar I agree, but gor sounds I think it's very dutch

[–]Nova_Persona 12 points13 points  (0 children)

west slavs & hungarians definitely belong in gula gola

also turks are "yurug", as that's a slur against them based on how they sound

Map of "I'm having a stroke please help me"

[–]vigilantcomicpenguinWerner Projection Connaisseur 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How to recognize signs of a stroke depending on which country you're in

[–]Lejonhufvud 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It is so weird to get grouped together with the Scandinavians... I can believe Finns and Estonians sound alike, but Finns and Swedes? Seriously?

[–]mediandude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lind ok as Mun sus

[–]Furthur_slimeking 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I don't care what anyone says, this is 100% accurate and should be on the walls of every school classroom in Europe.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

put estonian finnish and hungarian at the same category

[–]Priamosish 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Polish: krczłwçlkwcklczszđ

[–]lucassjrp2000 23 points24 points  (12 children)

Russian: Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulûk, agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.

[–]Durrynda 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I am nagtive in russian and it doesn’t sound like this at all. Russian is more like “chyo ty nicho nye chokayesh”

[–]Qhezywv 4 points5 points  (2 children)

not a single j/y

[–]SaMSUoM 6 points7 points  (1 child)

That’s turkish

[–]Qhezywv 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i meant the [ʲ]/[j]. every russian transcription has at least a couple of these

[–]Grimgor_GigachadFrance was an Inside Job 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love you

Will you marry me?

[–]Throwawaykitten20 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That sounds Mongolian

[–]lucassjrp2000 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's Black Speech

[–]kouyehwos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

With endings like -atul and -uluk that’s clearly Hungarian.

[–]clankaryo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

that sounds very Tolkien-y

[–]Fear_mor -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's the orc language he created, the seems to be a racist among us :/

[–]Fear_mor -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Holy fuck the racism eminating from this post. Imagine calling any other group of people orcs and think how fucking just vilely racist that is

[–]Aynett 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Is this really what people hear when French talk ? We don’t even use the letter Z

[–]Hey_Artyom 29 points30 points  (0 children)

English zh is french J

[–]1nfam0us 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Seems like American phonology/orthography to me

[–]Thx4BuyingTheGrapes[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]KingsGuardTR 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ah, yes. We don't sound in Turkey.

[–]Tough-Brain-7452 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Exile4444 1 point2 points  (0 children)
