hebrew to english

Please could someone translate קוראת to English and tell me what is the exact phonetic pronunciation?

I think that means readers. I would pronounce it "korét". —Stephen (Talk) 05:00, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
No, not "readers": it's definitely singular. it's actually "(I/you/she) reads" or "(I/you/she) is reading". It's the feminine singular present-tense of the verb. That verb means "read" most commonly now, but can also mean "call out". For many verbs, the present tense is also used as a noun ("reader" (feminine) in this case), and while that sounds odd to me for this verb, I can't exclude the possibility.​—msh210 (talk) 18:35, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Sanskrit: श्रद्धा (śraddhā) (śraddhā)
Khmer: ជំនឿ (chumnɨə) —Stephen (Talk) 05:09, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

are the words śraddhā and chumnɨə how u write it or how u pronounce it? i would like to know how to write them! tnx alot stephen! :)

No, śraddhā and chumnɨə are the pronunciations. The words are श्रद्धा (śraddhā) and ជំនឿ. If you do not see the letters in Sanskrit or Khmer, it means that you do not have the fonts installed for those languages. You have to have the fonts or you will just see ???? or boxes. —Stephen (Talk) 13:28, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

i see the words but i thot there is a way to write/spell them in say our letters maybe?

śraddhā and chumnɨə are a way to write them in our letters. Sanskrit uses the Devanagari alphabet, Khmer uses the Khmer alphabet, and English uses the Roman alphabet. To write श्रद्धा (śraddhā) in Roman letters, it’s śraddhā. —Stephen (Talk) 19:42, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Hazel Ryley Lilly

I don’t know the best way to translate Hazel, but Ryley = 莱利 (Lái Lì), and Lilly = 莉莉 (Lì Lì). —Stephen (Talk) 08:59, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
Hazel could be (one of the most common transliterations) 黑澤爾 (traditional Chinese) / 黑泽尔 (simpliified Chinese) (Hēizé'ěr). --Anatoli 10:16, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

how are u dear


can you translate this phrase to a simple phrase in english? "It's O.K. to get wound up when you think you are getting ripped off". thank before hand.

"It is okay to be upset when you think someone is cheating you" might be one way to simplify that phrase (mostly by removing the colloquialisms). It's possible to dumb it down further, but some meaning may be lost. How "simple" must the vocabulary be? Tempodivalse [talk] 03:10, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Swedish - listening (syl vs kyl)

In Appendix:Swedish_pronunciation#Vowels, can someone confirm that the speaker indeed is saying "kyl /ɕyːl/" and not "syl"? (It was originally marked as "syl", I changed it to "kyl".) The name of the audio file needs to be updated too. Vaste 10:24, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

He is saying "syl" with an S, but it sounds very similar to a tj-sound since he's aspirating quite a lot, but it's syl with an S. --Lundgren8 (t · c) 15:42, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

    • We don't seem to have that sense of sum. According to our entry, it's only a first-person form of "to be". does it need to be added? (Or is the first-person form used in a sentence like "a miracle happened here" for some reason?)​—msh210 (talk) 18:28, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

          • My Latin is not as good as it once was, but SemperBlotto's translation now appears correct. I think Msh210 was referring to this error, likely a typo. Tempodivalse [talk] 18:09, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

"Treasure hunt, just friends, telephone, one and two." To understand what they mean with that, I need context. It might be poetical or nonsense...

Wo Must Take Care Of Environment Our natural environment is something that we must forever take care of, treasure and respect. Unfortunately, we only have one planet, one earth, one environment and if we ruin it, we risk destroying it forever and causing irreversible damage that will be devastating for us and our generation but even more so for the future generations that haven't had a chance to live, experience and enjoy what we have.

There are many things that each and everyone of us can to do help protect our environment and reduce the impact that our life styles and way of living has on the environment. If we each do our bit for the environment, no matter how small, we can create a positive reversal on negative impact. By becoming more environmentally aware and through reducing each of our own carbon footprints, we can minimise the detrimental effect we have on our world.

What can we do in our quest for looking after our environment? We can all look after our environment and do things to become more environmentally friendly. One of the easiest and basic menas of becoming more environmentally considerate is to REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE

ReUse If something has more than a single usage, use it more than once. A classic example of this is reusing plastic shopping bags. These can be reused over and over again. An even better idea is to get the Environmentally Friendly shopping bags that most large supermarkets and even now a number of shops - like Rip Curl - have available for customers.

Reduce Reducing our usage of non renewable resources is paramount. Using things to their full potential, not wasting them and appreciating them without overusing and abusing them can have an extremely positive impact. Here are some very simple examples. Reducing our electricity usage will...

By recycling, we will reduce the amount of rubbish that needs to be taken to landfills, minimising the impact of rubbish fill on the land.

English to Latin 2

"Latin. Do you speak it?" --Daniel 23:23, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

The quote literally would be lingua Latina. loqueris?; "Do you speak Latin?" would be linguam Latinam loqueris? Salmoneus Aiolides χαῖρε 23:51, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
A better translation would be loqueris latinē? since Classical Latin did not express languages as nouns. --EncycloPetey 20:05, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. --Daniel 20:50, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
That's hardly true. Generally an adverb in a question like this indicates skill. To speak Latine in classical Latin would be to speak good Latin. This is a usage adopted from Greek. I don't know where one would come upon a comparable example of something along the lines of loquor latine meaning simply "I speak Latin". Salmoneus Aiolides Χαῖρε 05:03, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

This might be a lot to ask

But can you please translate this poem in Cyrillic alphabet?

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush. Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.

Many languages use the Cyrillic alphabet. To be clear, do you want this translated into a specific language, or a simple transliteration into Cyrillic (i.e. the same English phonetic sounds, represented not by Latin but Cyrillic script)? Tempodivalse [talk] 18:01, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

@ Tempodivalse

I sort of wanted it to look like this. So I guess it's Romanian Cyrillic. I want it to be just the way it is so yes, maybe you can just transliterate it if that's possible. I wanted it tattooed on me. I'd really appreciate your help. :)

Hmm. Romanian Cyrillic hasn't been used since the 1860s, and that particular text you linked to employs the old, archaic alphabet, which hasn't been used for over 150 years. It's significantly different from modern Cyrillic, and I don't know if we have any editors who can do a reliable transliteration in it (although I'll ask around.) Would using the modern Cyrillic alphabet be suitable for your purposes?
(BTW: please add four tildes ~~~~ at the end of your messages so we can tell more easily which user wrote it. Also, you can type your reply directly under my reply instead of creating a new section each time.) Tempodivalse [talk] 20:00, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
I think he is only interested in the superficial appearance of the BukyVede Old Cyrillic font and would be happy if the language used were Modern Romanian (Moldovan), Modern Bulgarian, Modern Russian, etc. —Stephen (Talk) 20:20, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
