I wonder how people with language disorders (DLD) like me handle languages like #German, #Dutch, #Japanese or #Korean compared to English. I’m not sure if it was my native tongue that worsen my learning ability during childhood. Does the same happen with other languages or is it a bit different?

Found a song that I can use as my #Korean reading practice.
BUT! It is a very sad song! This is the saddest song I've ever heard in my life.
You don't have to understand the lyrics, the composition and performance will capture your soul and make you feel what it is about. By the time you understand the lyrics, you'll feel your soul being pierced by a double-blade sword.

I know it's a serious issue with big political ramifications in both #Korean #Politics and #VideoGames internationally but I still can't help but laugh the more I read about #Megalia.
It started as a group of women who copy-pasted #misogynistic stuff from forums but with the genders reversed to illustrate a point. But so many of the men using those forums were too stupid to understand it even after it was explained to them that the group got demonized as misandrist.
They've also done a campaign to encourage women to stop obeying conventional beauty standards. Oh, and they lobbied to get a porn site that hosted noncon porn shut down.
Eventually, the movement fragmented over the question of whether it was okay to be homophobic against gay men. Notably, if you could doxx married ones on the basis that it was misogynistic to their wives to hide it from them. Megalia banned the practice on their site but that was unpopular enough to cause splintering and infighting.
But, getting back to the so absurd that you can't help but laugh, their legacy today includes a #Feminist hand gesture, 🤏. It sends #incels in the country frothing at the mouth. Nominally, it's supposed to look like an equals sign implying gender equality. But for reasons that I'm sure have nothing to do with deep-seated insecurities, a bunch of men insist it means "Korean men have small dicks". Patriarchy isn't limited to white supremacist ethno-nationalism, I guess.
Now a bunch of game companies with games popular in Korea are in the middle of a panic because an animator who worked on a bunch of them said something slightly feminist online. That caused incels to go into overdrive hunting for evidence that she was a monster. They found over a dozen key frames in animations she worked on where characters made that shape with their hands.
Again, it's awful that they are harassing her. It's gross that a bunch of companies have pledged to never work with her again and remove all content of hers from games. But it's so absurd that it's hard not to laugh.

Top 10 Korean Dramas not to miss.
#privacy is worth fighting.

The Space Between Here & Now looks at the life of 17-year-old Aimee Roh, a #Korean #Canadian girl who has "sensory time warp syndrome" — a condition that makes her time travel to a moment in her life when she smells something linked to that memory.
The Yoon admin wont stand with Palestine but many Koreans do. Here’s a little untold history
The Jeju uprising was notable for its extreme violence; between 14,000 and 30,000 people (10 percent of Jeju's population) were killed, and 40,000 fled to Japan ....
I finished the short story 알리바바와 40인의 도적 by 조동신 (Jo Dongshin): a streamer killed online + a locked-room mystery, loved it!
With this I finished this anthology published for the 40th anniversary of the Korean Crime Writers’ Association (한국추리작가협회). All the short stories had the number 40 in their title, and this number was also (more or less) part of the plot. Overall an entertaining book that allowed me to read seven different authors!
I always find it difficult to recognise loanwords in Korean. The last one I saw and had to look up is 탑티어 (Tap-ti-eo) >> top-tier.
I saw the word 대포폰 (大砲-폰), which means a burner phone. I thought it was a strange word because 대포 means gun/cannon, but I learnt that 대포 also means “lie”, “falsehood”. As burner phones are used as a way to conceal your identity (at least in mystery novels), the second meaning of 대포 makes sense here.
Oh, wait! They do that a lot in the Western world, make a criminal #autistic!
We are not psychopaths. We are not murderers. Stop using autism as an escape goat.
Been watching a stack of #Korean food shows lately so decided to hit up a new Korean fast food joint for dinner. Meal in a cup - beef, pork, noodles, rice and cabbage mix w/ some delicious sauce.
The correct translation of '고무적인 일' is 'Rubber event' or 'Rubber-like event'. It does not mean 'An encouraging event.' #korean
Lucky to have a Korean small supermarket near my place. Big fan of kimchi (cabbage or different kind!)

Hey fediverse please help! I'm looking for a #Korean and #English speaking #interpreter for some short immediate work on an art project interview series. Pays well, and very short requirements, and not very involved. but will need to start pretty soon!!

Is this you? Do you know someone? Please get in touch asap - email@example.com
Thanks for the article. All the more reason to keep learning Korean.
I didn't care for Goblin.i only stayed for the second couple's story and would have totally watched the drama if it was just their story. Sure, the 2Ls got so popular that they made a romcom together, but I wanted to see this tragic pair finally heal their love in their next life.
Does anyone know how to translate "I am proud of you" into Cantonese, Korean, and Japanese?
G. translates it to 我為你感到驕傲 (ngo5 wai4 nei5 gam2 dou3 giu1 ngou6) where 驕傲 (giu1 ngou6) is like "proud, arrogant, conceited" but a negative connotation(?) -- which makes me think there is *not* a direct translation of the English meaning. Is there a positive connotation for these words?
Descriptive Video Works is hiring! #AudioDescription #Job #Korean
Short and sweet, but packs a whole lot of punch, this Korean drama is about a mystical bar where people can find help to solve their "grudges" and the mysterious people who run it.
You are driving a #germany 🇩🇪 car to an #Italian 🇮🇹 coffeeshop to drink Brazilian 🇧🇷 #coffee and then going home buying #Chinese 🇨🇳 takeaway to sit on a #Swedish 🇸🇪 sofa in front of a #Korean 🇰🇷 TV to watch #us 🇺🇸 shows and all the while being complain your neighbor is an #immigrant
Pull yourself together.
I finished 아직은 고양이 by 정선임 (Jeong Seon-im), the second story in the collection 여름 기담.
The collection is in two volumes and the book covers are really cool. I couldn’t resist buying both! The stories in the “spicy” 매운맛 book should be more scary than the “mild” 순한맛 book.
The back covers are really well done, with all the information being related to the book (for ex, the nutrition facts lists the authors, the storage indication says “on bookshelf”, etc.).

Inspired by u/mrsgordon, I put a packet of Shin Ramyum soup base into my microwave popcorn https://www.diningandcooking.com/830247/inspired-by-u-mrsgordon-i-put-a-packet-of-shin-ramyum-soup-base-into-my-microwave-popcorn/
Just came out of the cinema and well, this movie was surprisingly good! Highly recommended.
Except...wtf is a childe??
It bugged me throughout the movie 😂🤣
PS: Movie should also be called "We Are All Crazy Here".
There’s an alley called “pimatgol” 피맛골 / 避馬골 in center Seoul.
피맛골 means “alley to avoid horses”. The sign explains that, during the Joseon Dynasty, ordinary people had to bow down to the ground when they came across higher officials (who were travelling by horse on the main road). To avoid this inconvenience, they used a back alley, thus called 피맛골.
I couldn't resume learning #japanese , since I've been procrastinating it for too long already. Instead I've decided to learn #hangul and #korean
Reading and writing definitely looks simpler compared to Japanese. There are no kanjis in Korean and there is a logic behind the syllables and their pronunciation.
And of course I'm super-motivated by the amazing #kdrama productions 😀
Korean drama "Reply 1988" intro scene shows them watching Hong Kong's famous film "A Better Tomorrow 2" (英雄本色 2 - "True Colors of a Hero") with Chow Yun-fat and Cheung Kwok-wing (Leslie Cheung) with Korean subtitles and you can hear the Cantonese in the background and Leslie singing 奔向未來日子. 😆
Ok ok, yeah, I was not expecting that. 😊 So good.
r/Korean has gone private to protest Reddit's upcoming API cost changes, so now I have no forum to ask my #Korean questions to. Guess I'll try asking one here again.
I'm watching the GoBilly Beginner Korean videos on YouTube and also own a copy of his book Korean Made Simple. They each use a different way to say "I want ..." and I was hoping to understand the difference.
The YouTube videos use NOUN + 을/를 가지고 싶다 to say "I want something."
The book uses NOUN + 을/를 원합니다.
Is one better than the other? Should they be used in different circumstances? What is the difference, if any?
Thanks for any input!
Yeah, I know there are a lot of similar words/sounds, but i always find it interesting when I (re)discover some. 🥳
English: "at the same time"
Korean: 동시에 dongsie
Mandarin: 同時 tóngshí (pinyin)
Cantonese: 同時 tung4 si4 (jyutping)
Japanese: 同時に dōjini
Extraordinary Attorney Woo - If you haven't seen this yet, it's worth your time.
"It follows Woo Young-woo, a female rookie attorney with autism, who is hired by a major law firm in Seoul. Being different from her neurotypical peers, her manner of communication is seen by them as odd, awkward, and blunt. With each legal case and through her intelligence and photographic memory, she becomes an increasingly competent attorney."
"Extraordinary Attorney Woo's" main actress Park Eun-bin won Baeksang Arts Awards 2023 - Grand Prize in TV!
A very moving speech. 💜 I really enjoyed the show. She talked about how it was so great to have so many fans be supportive. So happy for her!

"In 1905, a Korean American U.S. marine officer returns to his homeland on a diplomatic assignment. Coping with his painful past in Korea as an orphaned servant boy, he finds himself in a complicated relationship with an aristocrat’s daughter."
Interesting difference: 🥳
➡️ "she" 她 / "he" 他 - both pronounced the same
- mandarin pinyin tā
- cantonese jyutping taa1
- but this is mainly used in Mandarin and Standard written Chinese
- where 女 "female"
➡️ "she; her; hers; it; he; him; his;" 佢 - jyutping keoi5
- this is used in Cantonese, not in Mandarin
- 佢哋 - "they, them" - keoi5 dei6
- 畀佢 - "give/let him/her" - bei2 keoi5
➡️ Korean: "she" 그녀 - geunyeo / "he" 그 - geu
Yes, I know there are *a lot* of similar words/sounds, but didn't know of this one before and I often find it fun when I discover them. 🥳
➡️ "concur with; consent to; agree"
- Korean: 동의 dong-ui
- Mandarin: 同意 pinyin: tong2 yi4
- Cantonese: 同意 jyutping: tung4 ji3
I mainly use English, which is space-separated but with capital letters, and Japanese, which is not space-separated but uses logographic letters, aka Kanji. If all hashtags are written in hiragana, then I imagine it'd be hard to read even for sighted folks - and even more so for screenreaders.
