what does this mean? What is a "global" language?

Bullshit...

eastasiastudent 2013-02-13 23:06 link permalink

What? What does that have to do with the translation or quality of the sentence?

Vortarulo 2013-02-13 23:34 link permalink

Nothing. The sentence is perfectly well-formed. Even content-wise, it's objectively correct and meaningful.

sacredceltic 2013-02-14 09:33 link permalink

To assert that English is spoken globally is bullshit. It's just obvious that it isn't. You should travel more...

eastasiastudent 2013-02-14 10:42 link permalink

It doesn't matter if it's bullshit or not.

Tatoeba isn't interested in the factual accuracy of the sentences - we just want to see grammatically valid and authentic sentences with accurate translations.

Please have this debate somewhere else, as Tatoeba isn't the place for it.

>Please have this debate somewhere else, as Tatoeba isn't the place for it.

I disagree. Sentences are not mere grammatical structures. They spread opinions, and in democracies (I don't live in RPC or Russia...) anybody can publicly react to any public opinion. This is my right and that's that. Go complain to your favourite dictator !

eastasiastudent 2013-02-14 11:06 link permalink

What you're arguing for is actually anti freedom of speech. You want to have any content that you disagree with removed from Tatoeba.

What if we want to have "God exists" and "God doesn't exist" example sentences? By your logic, we have to remove one of them because it isn't true. Is it Tatoeba's place to be trying to settle that debate? It is not. It's just not what Tatoeba is for.

There is no shortage of places online to discuss these issues, but Tatoeba simply isn't one of them.

eastasiastudent 2013-02-14 11:08 link permalink

You are of course free to add "English is not a global language" type sentences, as well.

sacredceltic 2013-02-14 11:11 link permalink

>You want to have any content that you disagree with removed from Tatoeba.

Errr...no...When did I write that ?

eastasiastudent 2013-02-14 11:14 link permalink

Well then what is the point of this entire debate? You're wasting everyone's time and not contributing anything to Tatoeba.

sacredceltic 2013-02-14 11:19 link permalink

>Well then what is the point of this entire debate? You're wasting everyone's time and not contributing anything to Tatoeba.

You talk nonsense: I am one of the largest contributors to Tatoeba...I contribute approximately 50 times more than you do...
The point of the debate is you spread opinions publicly and I subsequently react to them publicly. That's not a waste of time, that's democracy.
Go dictate elsewhere. ! Here is free Internet.

@sc: Stop trolling and go travel more.

@everyone else: Unless SC actually challenges the integrity of the sentence and tries to demand that it's tagged/changed, I would suggest that you just ignore him. Otherwise he'll just troll ad infinitum...

sacredceltic 2013-02-14 11:34 link permalink

@FeuDRenais

I was merely asking about the meaning of this sentence through legitimate comments. YOU're trolling, because you have nothing to do with this sentence...You're here just because it smells of blood for you...

eastasiastudent 2013-02-14 11:36 link permalink

I'm disowning this sentence because I don't want this nonsense hitting my inbox every minute.

sacredceltic 2013-02-14 11:36 link permalink

@Demetrius

I know democracy is an entirely foreign excersise to you. But that is what it is...Learn !

you'll get it anyway because you commented it.

@eastasiastudent You'll also have to delete your comments to stop getting notifications, but this will generate another round of sacredceltic's comments. :)

It's alright I just created a filter for "sacredceltic" in my email.
