I have a love for languages and translating. It's one of my hobbies.
My mother tongue is Dutch, since it's the country where I live.

I also consider Gronings as my (second) mother tongue. Gronings is spoken in Groningen, a province in the north of the Netherlands. Gronings is considered as a dialect of Low Saxon, but most people here don't. Gronings also has dialects, so I'm actually speaking Veenkoloniaals and Oldamsters (because my parents are from those two different dialect areas). I'm speaking a mixture of those two dialects, because we don't learn Gronings in school.

However, I've learned to write Gronings at a Gronings course at the University of Groningen. This course wasn't teaching Veenkoloniaals but Hogelandster. So I'm adding sentences in the Hogelandster dialect. (There is not so much difference between the dialects of Gronings though). Hogelandsters is considered the most pure form of Gronings.

So most of my sentences will be in Hogelandster and some will be in Veenkoloniaals or Oldamsters, but those sentences will have a tag.

Here are some sentences from the dialects of Gronings, Dutch and English to show the differences:
Hogelandsters: t Ainege dat wie nait doun is slik oetdailen.
Westerkwartiers: t Eenege dat wie niet doun is slik uutdeelen.
Stadjeders: t Oinege dat wie noit doun is baaltjes oetdailen.
Oldamsters: t Oinege dat wie noit doun is slik oetdailen.
Westerwolds: t Einege dat wie nich dun is slikkerij uutdeilen.
Veenkoloniaals: t Ainege wat wie nait dudden is slikke uutduilen.
Dutch: Het enige wat we niet doen is snoep uitdelen.
English: The only thing we don't do is hand out sweets.

I'm also like fluent in speaking Icelandic, since I was born in Iceland, but I've never learned to write/read Icelandic, so I'm mostly focusing on translating sentences in Dutch and Gronings on Tatoeba.

Feel free to ask me about my languages or life. :)
