Dig into the distinction between a language and a dialect, and uncover the history of standardized languages.
Outside of China, Mandarin and Cantonese are often referred to as Chinese dialects, despite being even more dissimilar than Spanish and Italian. On the other hand, speakers of Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish, which are three distinct languages, can usually communicate with each other in their native tongues. So, when is speech considered a dialect versus a language? Martin Hilpert investigates.
Lesson by Martin Hilpert, directed by Luísa M H Copetti, Hype CG.
This dream involved me being in school again (we were probably adults in this dream) with all of my former classmates, we even lived at the school which was a multi-story building, and the dorm(s) were on one or more upper floors.
I heard news that Tom Brady was possibly going to be playing a different position on his football team because of an injury of his.
I went to sleep on a living room couch and I woke up and I went back to sleep several times waiting to watch episode two of American Horror Story: Cult, and at some point the episode failed to play so I got in bed without voice recording anything and I had several dreams and a near sleep paralysis experience and a sleep paralysis experience that I transitioned into a dream and a sleep paralysis experience with an assumed visual and auditory hallucination.
I did not voice record most of these because of the sleep paralysis experience and I did not want to get out of bed, instead I left a few notes on my mobile phone that I texted to myself, and so many details are lost now.
All that I can remember of the first dream is at the very end of the dream I was walking in the alley outside of my parents yard by the pet cages during late in the evening or during the night, and so it was a bit dark and I think that I was a bit angry/annoyed about something.
I was trying to walk back to the gate to go back inside the yard but there were some rotten pieced of wood/trees in the way and so I started stomping on them in anger/annoyance, some cockroaches (roaches) started coming out of the wood, and I hate roaches so I started stomping them wildly; but this killing frenzy caused me to wake up suddenly in the real world.
Last night I remembered my last dream which involved what I will call a job civil war among business men and the dream had American English, British English, French, Italian, and Spanish language(s) in it. 😀
It started with me on my first day on some unknown job in a small upper class restaurant/bar and 50 Cent was working as a waiter/dish washer/bartender/several other things, which makes no sense, but that is how dreams are sometimes. 😀
