    Everything's translatable into one language or the other, it's the meanings that are lost with that translation, essentially.

    Dammit all the forum ate my post. Dammit.

    @Clock: Right. I'm not disagree with you (or with Cora), but! If culture shapes language, which it does, and ... Fuck. I can't remember where this was going. Anyway, my point was something like this. Spanish didn't originate in South America, but in Europe. Native Spanish speakers have a more European mentality than a Mayan one, yeah?

    I had this worded better. :/

    There was a Chilean writer, a very good writer, who said: "Damn that translator, who in 5 seconds, he changed that word, that took me 5 hours to grasp".

    Well, in first place we don't speak Spanish, that's something that sadly USA people have named because no one really bothered to corrected them. We speak Castellano, its one of the many branches of Spanish tongues from Spain. Most of those tongues are dead now, and I think the few that are still in use are Castellno (what you guys call spanish) and Catalan.

    And yeah, the language was a mix of different tongues, between arab, latin, and more goth tongues. But also the culture chose, the culture adapt and the culture retain.

    And I won't even have had 5 hours of sleep... the exam is 50% of my final grade and I have to do it good since I don't have good grades...but I can't fall asleep ;___;

    You can't exactly study for it, its mostly reading texts and answering,

    But I'm afraid I won't be able to concentrate because of the lack of sleep
    I've been lying in bed for a while now...
