Manners maketh man


« on: April 12, 2011, 03:14:13 AM »

Mijn stem

Bij het ruw houten kruis,
heeft mijn stem geklonken
Kruisig Hem!
Daar werd de beker leeggedronken.
 
Valselijk beschuldigd
stond U daar terecht.
Mijn overtredingen en zonden
hebben Uw vonnis beslecht.
 
Ik ben mijn eigen weg gegaan.
Wist het allemaal zo goed.
Mijn eigen mening stond voorop,
ik wist hoe het moest.
 
Totdat ik ging beseffen,
dat ik niet alles weet.
Erkennen, dat ik Iemand nodig heb,
maakte mijn omkering  compleet.
 
Aan Hem gaf ik mijn leven.
Hou niet langer alles in de hand.
Hij bestuurt mijn levensboot,
brengt mij veilig naar de overkant.

Can only read and understand the language when spoken, with some difficulty.  Sad  And I know exactly nil in the way of poetry. But please keep contributing.

My voice

By the rough wooden cross
my voice has sounded
Crucify him!
The cup was drunk there up.

Falsely accused
You stood right there.
My transgressions and sins
Have your verdict settled.

I have gone my own way.
I knew it all so well.
My own opinion was paramount,
I always knew how…

Until I started to realize,
I do not know everything.
Recognition that I need Someone,
Made my reversal complete.

I gave my life to Him.
Keep no longer everything in control.
He rules my life boat
brings me safely across.

Zit u in Nederland?  Zo ja, aan welke parochie kerkt u?

Ik ga naar de parochie van de Heilige Nektarios in Eindhoven. Komt u dit bekend voor? Het is een goede parochie voor vele Orthodoxe gelovigen in Nederland.
Ben ook benieuwd aan welke parochie u kerkt.

Beste Daniel,

Ik dien in de Klooster van de Profeet Elias in St Hubert.  Tot nu toe ben ik nog niet in de Kerk in Eindhoven geweesd, maar ik heb wel de Vaders ontmoet.

Het is een hele mooie foto.

O, u bent van het klooster in Sint-Hubert. Ik was daar ook een keer geweest, op de dag van de begrafenis van vader Pahom. Mooi kerk, met heel veel iconen overal.

Christus is opgestaan!

Hopelijk dit jaar, wij gaan onze parochiefeest vieren op die "echte" datum (ipv de Zondag daarnaast).  Dus als u vrij bent op 20 juli, zijn u van hart welcom.

No - makes perfect sense to me too (I hope). He's saying he's not a farmer. I'm not at all fluent, but I'm familiar with Plattdeutsch (it was my grandfather's only language until secondary school) and it seems to help me understand a fair bit of both Dutch and Afrikaans - though the spellings are odd. There's no standard orthography for Platt but what would be Bauer in Hochdeutsch is more like Bur in Platt, which sounds very similar to Boer. (When I say Plattdeutsch I'm referring to the dialect spoken in the region close to Bremen - other dialects are available)

Thanks. No I, strangely, have never even thought to look for a Platt version of Wikipedia. I grew up hearing bits it (my mother cursing under her breath to a large degree) but never really was all that interested until the last few years. I'd love to be fluent but unfortunately unless I move the family back there, I don't think I ever will be.

Pretty much outside of Bavarian, Austria, and of course Switzerland real dialect use is dead.

The Standard language has taken over for the most part.

"Ik spreek geen Nederlands" is the only sentence in Dutch you should know when you come across someone from the Netherlands. I even voicerecorded it so that you could practice your pronunciation  Cheesy

William do you also have an orthonorm.txt file?

A what?

Εen tekstbestandje speciaal voor orthonorm, denk ik. Een dossier, misschien? Willem, hier spreken we Nederlands.

I don't spreken "Nederlands".

"Ik spreek geen Nederlands" is the only sentence in Dutch you should know when you come across someone from the Netherlands. I even voicerecorded it so that you could practice your pronunciation  Cheesy

The pronunciation is too intense!

Waarom heb ik dit niet eerder gezien? Zijn er hier nog nederlanders actief of niet? Aan jullie profiel te zien lurken jullie hier nog steeds. Dus, kom op, wees niet zo verlegen.

Kan jy verstaan ​​Afrikaans?



Jazeker. Het lijkt ook heel erg op Nederlands. Ben je een Boer?

Nee, ek is 'n Amerikaanse.  Ek leer Afrikaans.

Funny story which I will give in English because it is relevant and you speak English better than I do Dutch or Afrikaans   Wink.  My friend and I had a South African bus driver once so my friend asked if he was a Boer.  He said, "No.  I'm a truck driver."   laugh

HAHAHA!  Grin

That joke only the Dutch or the Boeren would understand  Cheesy

Maar waarom leer je eigenlijk Afrikaans?

No - makes perfect sense to me too (I hope). He's saying he's not a farmer. I'm not at all fluent, but I'm familiar with Plattdeutsch (it was my grandfather's only language until secondary school) and it seems to help me understand a fair bit of both Dutch and Afrikaans - though the spellings are odd. There's no standard orthography for Platt but what would be Bauer in Hochdeutsch is more like Bur in Platt, which sounds very similar to Boer. (When I say Plattdeutsch I'm referring to the dialect spoken in the region close to Bremen - other dialects are available)

You might enjoy this, although you probably already know about it:

http://nds.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:H%C3%B6%C3%B6ftsiet
Thanks. No I, strangely, have never even thought to look for a Platt version of Wikipedia. I grew up hearing bits it (my mother cursing under her breath to a large degree) but never really was all that interested until the last few years. I'd love to be fluent but unfortunately unless I move the family back there, I don't think I ever will be.

Pretty much outside of Bavarian, Austria, and of course Switzerland real dialect use is dead.

The Standard language has taken over for the most part.


No, Platt is alive and well in my ancestral home - they even have written Platt adverts in the local magazine, alongside Hochdeutsch of course. Of course, it's a tiny town in the sticks about halfway between Bremen and Hannover, so it's probably pretty much a rural holdout, though having said that Radio Bremen definitely still has programmes in Platt as well. My understanding is that there's a reasonably big movement to revive the language in Niedersachsen, Bremen and Hamburg as well.

My greatgrandmother was a Saxon and spoke Plattdeutsch as well as real-deutsch.  None of the kids spoke it, but when she got really mad she'd scream at them in Plattdeutsch.  My grandma said that they would all laugh at her for talking funny which would throw her into bigger fits of rage.

One time I read something in Dutch to my grandma and she said it sounded like Plattdeutsch to her.  Are they related somehow?  It looks like the Afrikaans word for Plattdeutsch is Nederduits.

Also, Cyrillic, when you say "Ik spreek geen Nederlands" how is the "g" pronounced?  Do the Nederlandse clear their throat with the "g" like they do in Afrikaans or is it different?

There's a sort of continuum. Low German dialects experienced either very few or none of the sound changes of the High German consonant shift, and so, they preserve, like Dutch, unshifted consonants. For example, many Low German dialects will use ik instead of ich, Appel instead of Apfel, geven instead of geben, schip instead of schiff, etc. Low German dialects can be rather easily mutually intelligible with Dutch, and difficult to understand for speakers of Standard German (that is probably why your grandmother said the Dutch you were reading sounded like Plattdeutsch).

I recorded it since I don't know how to use the phonetic alphabet. Don't ask the Belgians how to pronounce the 'g' though. Their pronunciation of it is horrible.

Neen. Je zal het met mij moeten stellen Smiley

Ik wist niet dat zo'n thread bestaat!

Leuk! Ook al voor mij schijnt schrijven moeilijker te zijn dan praten. Sinds een paar jaar heb ik de taal helemaal niet gebruikt.
