My mother tongue is Polish, so it's "międzynarodowy dzień języka ojczystego".

I didn't even know that was a thing. Well, my native language is English so you already know I guess. lol

I didn't either. It appears to be a UN thing.

It has an intesting history. "The date commemorates a rare battle fought in the world history for one’s mother tongue."

Oh wow. I knew the UN had a day for its six working languages but I didn't think they cared about any others.

国際の母国語の日 Kokusai no bokokugo no hi. I think. 母国語 is "bokokugo" though. :) I have trouble with compound kanji too. You might also be able to shorten 母国語 to 母語 (bogo) which is also "native language". :D

Close. But it would be 国際母語の日. 国際 = international, 母語 = mother language, and の日 = day of.

Irish (an Ghaeilge) not my native so to speak. But I grew up with it.

1 year ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Knocksedan

Lá Idirnáisiúnta na Máthairtheangacha, is the official translation, but it strikes me as a literal translation largely for the sake of this particular phrase (even though it uses the plural Máthairtheangacha/"languages") - the normal phrase used in Irish to refer to a persons "mother/native tongue/language" is teanga dhúchais, where dúchas can be understood as "heritage" or "traditional", or something that has been passed down to you.

Tuigim é sin nois, an béarlachas é "máthairtheanga"?

1 year ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Knocksedan

Tá cuma béarlachas ar, i mo thuairimse, ach b'fhéidir go bhfuil sé úsáideach chun idirdhealú a dhéanamh idir an Ghaeilge agus teangachqa eile?
