well, in hebrew we use the arab expression as the languages are very simular at times - "yalla" (the arabs use a very deep, almost J like y in thier words, apart from that it's the same)
we can also say "kadima!" which is literally forward, but it's used alot to support as in GO GO GO (kadima kadima kadima!)

She sang the official song of the Euro 2004 in Portugal. I remember it was called "Fora". I thought that Viggen got it from the title of that song (seeing that Nelly Furtado may be the most famous singer who can speak at least a bit Portuguese. Brazilian and Portuguese artists are almost unknown, which is a shame... *plays Tribalistas*, except maybe Gilberto Gil).

Vamos' portuguese pronounce differs from the spanish one because the V actually sounds like a V, so there is.

Giuliano, I agree it's a shame that brazilian and portuguese artists aren't famous enough around. Brazil's commercial songs often stink, they're so bad but so is rest of the world's, but we can also find some excellent work outside of the mainstream, and those are usually the ones who still have some (very small) success in other countries.

Well, back on topic - I didn't know Hopp was only used in Switzerland. I've only seen it people encouraging Federer and he speaks (swiss?) german so I thought it was common use by all german speaking countries. So, is there much difference between these languages because for a moment there I thought that I got all wrong when thinking that Switzerland also spoke german. :unsure:

I'd like to know how's italian for Vamos. Because they seem to use Forza, but that's Power and not Come On literally. Is it Vamos too? I remember in some italian movie they saying something that sounded like "Yamo!" but I'm not sure.

I've seen it and she's quite good at it. She uses Portugal's accent and adding that it's not her first language will probably cause most brazilians to not understand her quite well at first, but she's good.

I don't know if Ricky Martin actually speaks the language, but he's done some commercials in Brazil and his portuguese is quite good. Granted, Spanish is MUCH MORE alike Portuguese than English/French but still. :p

Not as beautiful, though. Portuguese is definitely the most wonderful sounding language in the world. I used to prefer Brazilian accent before, but now I think the Continental one is beautiful as well.

Apr 29th, 2005, 11:28 PM
Andiamo, that's it. Thanks!

I agree with you that Portuguese is such a beautiful sounding language. However, I'd still pick French as the most beautiful one, as clich as it is to say that.

Regarding Portuguese, I used to dislike the Continental accent a bit, but it has grown on me to the point that I like just as much as the standard Brazilian accent (the apparent accentless accent used by journalists and media in general in the whole country). What I most like about Brazilian Portuguese is the impression I have that we pronounce the words slowly like few other languages/accents do, even in fast conversations it still sounds slower than most others. That must be an impression, though.

Spanish is beautiful as well. In fact, all latin descendent languages are amazing IMO.

What are you talking about buddy, Roberto Carlos now come on the guy is so well known, then again maybe you may just be referring to the entire american population, however for spanish speaking americans like my self and most of the latin americans or spanish speaking population in the US is quite familiar with some good Brazilian singers. Simone too was pretty "in" in the late 80's early 90's. Sopra Contrariar, now this man I love, his voice is the shit, he's now known for Alexander Pires and most of his stuff is great, yeah it might be pop and cliche love songs or what have you but hes very popular amongst the latin american community in the US, especially in cities like New York and Miami.

So I wouldnt say this is totally true, and ACEBAHIA, they were popular too last summer or two summers ago with bate forte tambor, sorry if I am not spelling these correctly I am mainly basing them on how they would be spelled in spanish or in most latin root or romance languages.:wavey:

By the way the swiss do speak German its just not Hoch Deutsch or normal German or whatever you want to call it. Its just a swiss version of German, just like Flemish is a version of Dutch, however, the differences are much more subtle between Nederlands and Flemish, than they are from Swiss German and German.
One obvious one that I can think of is, Germans either say Guten tag or Guten morgen and the Swiss would address you with Gut Grozi. The swiss also dont say or use bitte schoen as much, they rather use some strange french german combo, I think they say and I've heard Roger say merci Danke, instead of Danke schoen. So yeah its german alright just a very different version with its very special accent. The same thing can be said about French canadian, boy ole boy, this one can get kind of fishi, you would expect Bonjour but they use some weird english/french combo that just confuses the bejesus out of me.:lol:

Hi,

Well, I do know some brazilian artists are relatively known in the latin communities in the US. I've heard Alexandre Pires (that's his name, S Pra Contrariar was the name of his band which ended about 8 years or so ago) is quite famous there. His voice is good, but he's so lame. These days he's more successful in the U.S. and spanish speaking countries in Latin America than in Brazil.

Ax is a very popular brazilian rythym and is from the state of Bahia. Ax Bahia is from there (duh) and this song is quite famous indeed. Anyway, when I was talking that brazilian artists aren't well known I guess I meant in countries who really have no close connection to the country i.e. most countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania. I know in Japan lots of artists are well known and Bebel Gilberto does relatively well. She's the best "international" brazilian artist at the moment. Guess I wished more artists of her type would be famous all around (especially HERE).

By the way the swiss do speak German its just not Hoch Deutsch or normal German or whatever you want to call it. Its just a swiss version of German, just like Flemish is a version of Dutch, however, the differences are much more subtle between Nederlands and Flemish, than they are from Swiss German and German.

The same thing can be said about French canadian, boy ole boy, this one can get kind of fishi, you would expect Bonjour but they use some weird english/french combo that just confuses the bejesus out of me.

Thanks for clearing this up. I thought that for being neighbour from one another and being relatively small, there wouldn't be much difference from all the german variations. Guess I shouldn't have thought that because even in my state there's different accents and expressions.

I think it's quite amusing people mixing up two languages like that, and have always thought it was a bit freaky to have two official languages in one country (as in Canada, Belgium and Switzerland to name a few), let alone those with MULTIPLE languages. Gosh! Must be fun, though. To basically learn two languages or even a bit more as something usual (ok, not everyone does it, but they're given the opportunity more often I'm sure).

Yeah the swiss are something special, they can switch well most can switch easily from one language to as many as four. Most are fluent in german and french, many can get there way around with German, French and Italian, and most can understand you in english so its pretty cool that they can speak so many languages in one place. Theres Romantsch too, its a very old raetico language, its got some Italian in it but am not too sure.:wavey:

There is no such word as "Gambarre" in Japanese. If it's "Ganbatte" you're talking about, it means "go for it", "hold on" or "keep at it". So there also really isn't an exact Japanese translation for "C'mon".

:confused:

Because she lives in Miami and there's a relatively large latin community there, but most probably because she was reported to be dating Juan Carlos Ferrero? I guess that should explain.

Lately, she's back to "C'mon" though. Guess things didn't work out with Mosquito and I actually never heard "Davai" coming out of her in a match.

Komaan and kom op are both Dutch, the former is used in the southern Netherlands while the latter is used in the northern parts. But both are correct Dutch.

1. Maria S. practiced at JCF's tennis academy is Spain. So she probably aslo used "Vamos!" there. Nothing wrong with that. Federer uses German, French & English on the court.

2. Standard written German (Hochdeutsch) is the same in Switzerland, Germany & Austria. Within the individual regions, the dialects are quite varied. Swiss German is quite different, but so are Bavarian, Swabian, etc. Here are some examples of salutations:

High German: Guten Tag! Hallo! Tag!
Austria & Bavaria: Grss Gott! Grss dich! Servus!
Switzerland: Grzi!

3. I'd really like to learn Portuguese next, but I don't really think it's the most beautiful language. (Actually, I don't think any language is really beautiful to be honest.) It sounds somewhat Slavic to me.

Andiamo, that's it. Thanks!

I agree with you that Portuguese is such a beautiful sounding language. However, I'd still pick French as the most beautiful one, as clich as it is to say that.

Regarding Portuguese, I used to dislike the Continental accent a bit, but it has grown on me to the point that I like just as much as the standard Brazilian accent (the apparent accentless accent used by journalists and media in general in the whole country). What I most like about Brazilian Portuguese is the impression I have that we pronounce the words slowly like few other languages/accents do, even in fast conversations it still sounds slower than most others. That must be an impression, though.

Spanish is beautiful as well. In fact, all latin descendent languages are amazing IMO.

Interesting but I myself love Germanic languages and the Russian language. The Romance languages have too many vowels for my liking.:o

Swiss does not exist. In Switzerland you speak swiss german, french or italian. Hopp is swiss german. in the french speaking part of Switzerland we say Allez, not Hopp.
Italian: I'd add "Vai" and "Dai". I dont see somebody encouraging himself by saying "Forza". "Forza" is more used to encourage someone else. Example: "Forza Francesca". But Francesca herself would say "e vai".

to correct the japanese idea:
ganbare and ganbatte comes from the same root verb, which is ganbaru.

you need to understand japanese verb conjugations before saying ganbare is wrong.

ganbatte is used as an encouraging word, so jappy players won't be shouting that to themselves. i would think yatta (done), or yosh (good), moratta (received, which is a somehow polite yet arrogant form of saying i've won), would be a close one.

i've yet to hear japanese players shout all these, so i may be wrong.

at USO 06: i've seen morae (burn) shino, that's kinda cool.

as for chinese, i think it's the same. you hear jiayou (add petrol) for encouragement, but players dun say these to themselves. i think hao qiu (good ball) is sometimes shouted by the fans.

i might be wrong, but i think they say sha (kill) when they win a point sometimes? lol. very brutal stuff.

That's a very bad habbit!

But still in The Netherlands where Dutch has his origins we don't use the word 'komaan' it sounds ridiculous.

And please don't respond, we now know you only wanna be right, even though you're obviously not!

So to the person who started this thread, I'll ask you one more time, please change 'komaan' into 'kom op'. If there would have been standing Belgian, you could have easily said 'komaan' but as Dutch has his origins in The Netherlands and as no one is saying 'komaan' in The Netherlands it would be accurate if you would change it into the correct word: kom op. Thank you.

That's a very bad habbit!

But still in The Netherlands where Dutch has his origins we don't use the word 'komaan' it sounds ridiculous.

And please don't respond, we now know you only wanna be right, even though you're obviously not!

There is no such language as " Belgian " .. and maybe you should also do some research on the origin of the Dutch language :tape:

Dutch should indeed be changed into "Kom op". "Komaan" should be named Flemish, not Dutch.

I was also thinking of a translation, but a literal translation which would have no relation to the context of the situation would be "sige na" which is like "come on" but is not applicable in the situation stated.

Most likely a Filipino player would just use the english "come on" rather than any Filipino translation. This is very interesting, Filipinos aren't known for aggressiveness, so I wouldn't be surprised if a proper translation wasn't found in our language.

P.S. to jacs, don't we have so many no equivalents in our language lol? :) :P :D to mashachosen1, "tara" could be understood also as let's go such as come on could be understood in that way. Besides shouting "tara" sounds stupid after winning a point, it sounds like a joke hahaha.

Actually, it's ajde/ajmo in both languages. Ajde is what you would say to one or more persons (singular or plural) while ajmo is what you would say to a group of which you are a part (plural only). Logically, with tennis being a single players sport ajde is the preferred choice, since you are talking to either yourself or to the ball, not to your team of trainers and family members watching the game...

"C'mon" as in what a player shouts after winning a point or "C'mon" as in how the crowd cheer the players on? Cos a Chinese player would never shout "Jia You" after wining a point. :p
