Ár glheþ in direct
« on: October 24, 2020, 05:16:59 PM »
Based on my brief conversation with the Túischac'h at the State Opening of Parliament, I can now declare that I think it imperative that we have regular live audio chats using the Talossan language because, without that, no-one apart from we language nerds who can read IPA have clue one how it's actually supposed to sound.

Ziscutetz.

Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Talossa. Ask me anything.

I'm all in favour. The only problem with that would be that the vast majority of Ladintschen are nowhere near fluent enough for this to work live (at least I'm certainly not, I have to look up every other word). What we could do in the meantime would be to have some kind of (semi-)scripted show, not sure what that would look like in practice though.

I don't think an ALL-glheþ broadcast is necessary or possible, but just one in which we show off the pronunciation of some commonly used words. I don't know if you were watching, but the Leader of the Opposition pronounced "Ziu" in two different ways in his rebuttal, lol.

It should be a live dialogue at best, because honestly I don't know whether you guys pronounce the same way as I do. (I remember that I always used to pronounce the O in Talossa in the same way as in English "loss" until I was forcibly corrected.)

Heh, I noticed halfway through I was saying ZY-u rather than ZEE-u and then switched.

Fair enough. Perhaps it'd help to combat the Cestourats' tendency to pronounce the L in azul and other such things, and I think I heard some pronunciation errors in your oath as well? Error might be too strong of a word, but I believe you stressed the adverbial ending -mint at some point, I missed your speech so I cant verify that until the VoD is uploaded.

So, how would we go about this? Any concrete plans or suggestions?

Voice or video chats on the Discord server, and someone makes a screen recording on their computer.

Alright, so we have a "what" and "how", whats missing is the "when", and maybe the "who".
