Kinda off topic but the reason those Japanese people are calling it a brizzard is because the L and the R in Japanese sound the same. Thank you encyclpedia.

Actually, the reason is more psychological than that. Your ability to discern letters sounds is dependent on your linguistic internalization, thus many Asians simply don't have the ear to distinguish between L's and R's just like I believe there are sounds in Russian that most Anglophones can't distinguish.

I agree.

That's why I disagree with any sort of Western version of a description of the German first person pronoun, Berliner or non. Pretend you're hacking something out of your throat right after getting started saying "eel." That's Ich. Germanic speakers don't even get that...

Talk about going off topic.

It's still 56 degrees in central Jersey. Sorry everyone that doesn't live down south. Actually, sorry for you guys too, but that's another issue.

Preechr, the only real variety I've heard with "ich" comes from American students of German (like myself). From Vienna to Berlin all I heard was literally just "ish", but I'm willing to concede that maybe my ear isn't trained for it and I am of impression that the Hamburg area retains the Saxon "ikh" much more. The first time I heard a lecture in German, it was the Archbishop of Hamburg and he definitely used harder ch's than what I was used to, but back then my German skills were even more limited than they are now.

It wasn't really that bad, actually. I mean, it could have been colder. I think winter was just playing catch-up since it's been hovering around 0°C for a couple weeks.

It's a balmy -30°C outside right now.

That also reminded me of that Family guy from when Chris becomes quagmeires "Son" and clevelands son becomes peters "Son"; his boss at the golfing range. "Big deal it's a secret tunnel like in ww2 wanna fight about it?"
