I don't know how welcomed I'd feel it someone shouted welcome at me.
Is this "welcome" used only as a greeting, or can it be used as in "your welcome"??
English is the only language I'm aware of that uses "welcome" in that way, so I'll take a wild guess and say no, it can't.
Swahili uses "karibu" to mean both "welcome" and "you're welcome".
Cool, I wasn't aware of that.
That's also the case with Welsh croeso, I think.
Caribou is an animal like a raindeer in Québec French lol
The word is also used in English, but its from French
Québécois French also does it.
even if you can say "soyez les bienvenue" it's just seems more natural for us to just say "bienvenue"
I think here it means:
Some one should buy an island and develop a community where people speak High Valyrian. This language actually sounds nice.
On which syllable does the stress fall in this word?
Two syllables long, stressed on the first: JIŌR-na
q: in basics 1 it is said that j is pronounced like [ʤ] or [j]. why does this sound like "giorna", not "(d)zhiorna" or smth akin to that? it sounds closer to greek gamma or russian г.
Nice.. Kirimvose /-)
Was the choice of this word influenced by romance languages' words for day?
From what we know about the etymology, probably not. But that may bee a useful mnemonic!
