I'm animated about language! The history of written and spoken languages amazes me. I use stories and cartoons to bring linguistics to life. Think about it... Where do the world's writing systems come from? Does your language shape the way you think? What will Future English be like? How do you crack undeciphered scripts? What's the Latin word for jumbo jet? Subscribe for language! Playlists: 2016 ~ My favorite tales from the history of languages and writing systems. 2015 ~ Thoth's Pill highlights my Year of Writing! 2014 ~ I explain linguistic oddities in "Figuring Language Out" 2014 ~ I traveled through the eyes of local languages in "Eavesdropping Traveler" 2013 ~ I asked big questions in "What is human language?" 2012 ~ I started with linguistics & logic lessons. Pretty technical. But technically not as pretty. YOU are a big deal to me!

Classical Latin went extinct, yet we still know how to pronounce it. Proof!

Take a trip with me back to Catholic school, then back even further to old Rome. We'll see what Latin pronunciation did - and did NOT - sound like in the mouths of the Romans. Thanks to ancient authors and modern Romance languages, we'll even glimpse a range of evidence for the speech of Caesar and pauper alike!

SERMO VULGARIS ALL DAY LONG, am I right? ;)

The Hardest Language To Spell

Which language has the worst spelling bees? This one. Xidnaf claims Thai is "World's Most Complicated Writing System": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKVtpCByEy4 Watch me disagree. Then SUBSCRIBE for more language! https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=NativLang * SPOILER * Watch - Don't read - Unless you want answers... In this video I tackle the claim that Thai is the world's hardest writing system. Sit back as I share what it's like to learn to write Tibetan, and I think you'll change your mind. The Tibetan script is also an alphasyllabary that surrounds consonants. Tibetan also has tones to deal with. But Tibetan is much older and requires you to do some serious backflips to read and...

What's the Easiest Language to Learn?

► Learn a language with a native speaker today: http://go.italki.com/1Ojye8x (italki voucher) Possibly the most commonly asked question about language learning is "What is the easiest language to learn?" I answer that question in general, and then with regard to native English speakers. The short answer: whatever language is most similar to your native language. But of course there`s more to it than that. In this video I discuss the easiest language to learn as well as the hardest language to learn.

What Montezuma's Aztec Sounded Like - and how we know

The Aztecs didn't call him Montezuma. Nor Moctezuma. They didn't call chocolate "chocolate". Heck, they didn't even call themselves Aztec! Though they were an oral culture, we have an idea of what their language really sounded like. Here's why. Subscribe for language: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=NativLang Follow my progress or become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=584038 ~ Corrections ~ As Rodrigo Chacón comments, the transitive "nicua" is not used alone. Instead, expect to find "nitlacua" (indefinite -tla-) or "niccua" (definite -c-). Here's a better illustration for building the verb: "ni___cua". ~ Are you reading instead of watching?

How far back in time could you go and still understand English?

If you had a time machine, how far back could you go and still understand English? AT what point in history would you not be able to understand the English language? If you went back in time to the 1800's and 1700's, you'd probably still be okay. This except is from the book 'Robinson Crusoe', in 1719: "I, poor miserable Robinson Crusoe, being shipwrecked during a dreadful storm in the offing, came on shore on this dismal, unfortunate island, which I called “The Island of Despair” That's fairly easy to understand, but you might struggle with old slang words like 'batty fang' and...

What Shakespeare's English Sounded Like - and how we know

Why do North Indians Look Different from South Indians? The Genetics of South Asia

Today, we're going to answer the questions of why North and South Indians have such vastly varying features, and look at the genetic history of South Asia as a whole. I'm not trying to offend anyone with my tangent on skin color discrimination in Bollywood and Indian society, merely stating a fact that Bollywood actors are of a much lighter complexion than the average Indian so it's not fair to judge what the average Indian looks like by looking at South Indian celebrities. Indians with light skin are not any less "Indian-looking" than Indians with dark skin. Don't post racist comments in...

Top 10 Incredibly EASY LANGUAGES to Learn

Everyone but the biggest knuckle-dragging Neanderthal agrees that learning another language is a good thing. Aside from unlocking a whole new way of thinking, it also allows you to appear worldly, sophisticated and (probably) great in the sack. But with only a small percentage of Americans and an even-smaller percentage of British speaking a second language, it seems most of us can never dream of achieving this common goal. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://www.toptenz.net/toptenz-t-shirts →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo →Simon's VLOG: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqt8j7DfPmveJp3UOk9XTg Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from...
