Goede middag, Craven! het verrukt me om aan u te spreken. Het Nederlands is een zeer interessante taal. Wanneer besliste u het Nederlands te leren? Zou u naar Holland willen gaan?

Afternoon is midday... I like that!

Het is hier vroege ochtend.

Het genoegen is al mijn eerlijke drom.

Was trying to say fair as in "My fair lady" but it seems to have given me the more pedestrian meaning...

Jij spreekt waarheid. Het is vooral interessant wanneer men om met Nederlandse dames probeert te flirten.

Quote:

Ik besliste leren Nederlands hier.

That last sentence was sans babelfish so lemme know if I got it right.

Quote:

Zou u naar Holland willen gaan?


Samen met elke natie ter wereld, ja.

Dit is erg grappig om te horen. Het principe is heel goed; natuurlijk zitten er een paar foutjes tussen, maar het gaat erg goed!

(This is very funny to hear. The principle is very good; there are of course some minor mistakes, but it's going really well!)

It was almost correct. It should be:

Ik besliste om hier Nederlands te leren.

Yes, 'to learn' is 'te leren' yes. Do you know what's funny: I have NO IDEA what the rule behind 'om' is. The best explanation is that 'om' is a translation of 'to' in 'to learn' - but that's confusing considering that 'to learn' is 'te leren'. The best thing to say is that 'to' - in this case - has to be translated with TWO words: 'om' and 'te'.

Example:

I'm coming to eat

Dutch: Ik kom om te eten

Maybe "for"? That sentence would make a "for" make sense, but not "for here". Then again "to here" wouldn't have made sense.

Let's just pretend it was "over here". Mr. Green

Maar zullen we het gesprek voortzetten?

(But shall we go on with the conversation?)

Note: Dutch grammar is difficult, Dutch vocubalary isn't that difficult. Keep in mind that after Frisian (a language spoken in the northern part of the Netherlands, as well in Germany and Denmark), Dutch is the language which is most similar to English. Damn, I get the feeling I'm transforming into one of those old Dutch teachers which I disliked so much the past years Confused

De show moet verdergaan

Sans babel (by that I mean not using it to put it together, but sometimes getting vocab from it):

Ik ben het gebruiken uw vervoeging.

Ik wil te verdergaan. < is that right?

He he, I think I know enough now to tell that that's a Babel sentence (cause of the U instead of Jij).

Ik ben uw vervoeging aan het gebruiken. You see that I use 'aan'. Now, 'aan' is a word that - in the case it's an adverb - is in most cases untranslatable in English.

Craven de Kere wrote:

Now in this case, it is correct to say 'Ik wil verdergaan'. It's not correct to put 'te' for every "full" verb. Besides that, the verb 'willen' (to want) can not be put with 'te' in the same sentence (considering 'willen' is used as a personal pronoun).

My thought was "You should get nimh in here" ... I really have no idea how BabelFish translated it ... but I imagine it came out idiomatically obscure Laughing

'You should get nimh in here' is in Dutch 'Je zou nimh erbij moeten halen'. What you said would be in English (although the sentence is incorrect) 'You should become here nimh (in)'. Laughing

Goede avond iedereen!

(I like the midday/evening thing too...!)

Is het nu daar middag? Is er hitte in San Diego? Het is hier dertig graden Celsius.

U bent zeer charmerend. De Nederlandse vrouwen zullen van u houden Wink.

[quote="Craven"]Ik besliste leren Nederlands hier.

[/quote]

U bent enigszins gelijkaardig aan me! ik houd van willekeurige talen op te nemen. Ik leefde eens in Bruxelles, maar ik sprak daar slechts het Frans; Ik leerde nooit Vlamingen alhoewel ik Vlamingen wilde spreken. Ik probeer meer nu op te leren.

Nederland is zeer mooi. Meer het idee dat iedereen liberaal is is verkeerd.

Ik op ben benieuwd... wie is de beroemdste Nederlander?

Dat is natuurlijk Vincent van Gogh! Of misschien Antonie van Leeuwenhoek? Of Rembrandt van Rijn?
