This is going to be easy. I am dying with happiness that Esperanto has no conjugations! Unlike French, it has so many conjugations and so many irregular verbs to memorize!
really. For He, She, Two men, Two women, They (more than 2 men), They (more than 2 women), You (a man), You (a woman), You (2 men), You (2 women), You (more than 2 men), You (more than 2 women), I, We .... ^:^ And harder. it has many kind of Verb! I like learn Arabic very well, because it is a strange language.
However, many words in Esperanto are of German origin.
Knabe (or Junge) means boy – knabo. Stahl means steel – ŝtalo. Draht means wire – drato. Hund means dog – hundo. lernen means to learn – lerni. pfeifen means to whistle – fajfi. Stein means stone – ŝtono.
If you study Esperanto as a German you are well astonished by the amount of German-origin words in that language. Well, Zamenhof was partly German.
Yep, I also noticed hundo and it reminded me of Germanic languages. After all, English as a Germanic language has hound. The good part about English speakers learning Esperanto is that about 60% of vocab in English comes from Romance languages (French and Latin mostly) and 40% Germanic origin. So far, I noticed these influences in Esperanto. Can't wait to explore this language!
It's cool that solely the letter k is reserved for the sound k (I hope but don't know for sure as it's my second Esperanto DL class) like in the IPA. In English c is mostly pronounced as a k but sometimes as an s (city). In Spanish it also has a couple ways to pronounce it - k as in cantar and th or s as in centro depending on your dialect.
I love this language, it's fun and simple. I've noticed lots of spanish influence, and some german too, I'd say it has english, but english just steals words from romance and germanic languages, so you can't really take from english. This is fun and simple, and since I am learning german and spanish, It's very easy.
