Polish: here have all of these consonants have fun
japanese: subject article noun article verb. too bad there's three fucking alphabets lmao hope your first language isn't western
Finnish: How the fuck do you say any of this
Man this kind of posts really piss me off. I won't talk about the first 5 ones because I have no knowledge of Gaelic and the other ones are pretty much correct. In Polish a bunch of consonants usually has one sound, like in English the diagraph "sh" is pronounced as just one sound, and obviously, the only thing hard to pronounce are the sounds not present in your native language. Japanese has no ARTICLES, what you are talking about are PARTICLES, and it also uses 4 alphabets, not 3. And Finnish is a phonetic language, so what you see written is usually what you have to pronounce. God damn it people.

floatingwaterbuffalo: Apparently now the Mayan speak nahuatl. The internet is a strange place to learn things, as I remember those being totally different language families. Makes my mind cringe a bit, but maybe it’s just ignorance on my part. Nope, you are right. Maya and Nahuatl are completely different languages from different linguistic families. I think the people that made you think...
