I'm starting to write a series (I'll tell more maybe on my next post) of short stories and publish it (somewhere). English is not my first language btw. I use thesaurus to change words to a more fitting one but I follow (from someone's) an advice that proper use of words should be observe (especially the extent/context). Also, I would appreciate any of your advice for my work (to improve my writing, I guess.)
Thank you so much. 😁
Upon entering this subreddit, I noticed that a lot of people have often asked if people have music, tv show, textbook suggestions etc. Though my German is in no way perfect, I would like to share a list of media I have consumed in my language journey thus far and I genuinely do hope this might help someone. I’m personally still constantly learning though and I don’t think my journey would ever come to an end, so I would be happy to receive recommendations myself (:
Ich wurde neulich Mitglied dieses Subreddits und habe bemerkt, wie viele Leute es gibt, die fragen, ob jemand Empfehlungen für deutsche Musik, Serien usw. hat. Ich muss zugeben, dass mein Deutsch natürlich keineswegs perfekt ist aber ich möchte hier die Ressourcen empfehlen, die mir geholfen haben, meine Sprachkenntnisse zu verbessern und ich hoffe aufrichtig, euch helfen zu können. Ich lerne aber selber immer noch und darum würde ich mich darüber auch freuen, wenn ihr Ideen für mich hättet!
TV shows - Serien... keep reading on reddit ➡
It was hard to understand what people were talking about when I first joined this subreddit, and I saw lots of new people asking what those words mean. So I thought it would be easier if I created a dictionary of the vocabulary we use. I'm still relatively new, so if I missed any words or my explanations are weird, please leave a comment so I can edit this!
Barcode: Refers to a cluster of self-harm wounds and scars because they look similar to barcodes.
(Forbidden/Baked) Beans: The layer of fat. It is said that the fat looks like baked beans
Butterfly: A butterfly bandaid is like a steri strip. It is said that the bandaid looks like a butterfly
Cat scratches: Refers to when people who self-harm (usually cutting) will say something similar to "oh, my cat did it!" when asked where their self-harm wounds and scars came from.

I know how many of you must find it to construct long paragraphs without any significant aid. But it is now that all souls should join hands and work on an art, an astonishing and brilliant dictionary, for all our mighty folk, that allows said humans to build words for this sub fast and furiously.
Thank you, and I look forward to all your amazing opinions on this topic. If you want to, gladly post it down this post.

I think mines pretty good especially the last one.
According to this Wikipedia article, there are 1,100,373 words listed in the largest Korean dictionary 우리말샘 , which seems to be an official government-approved source:
This is the literally the largest amount of words listed in a dictionary for any language. It's almost double that of English, which has 505,000 words listed in its largest dictionary source.
Now, there's no way the average Korean knows over a million words (maybe somewhere around 20,000 to 40,000), so I'm assuming the majority of the entries are obsolete and fallen out of use, or just very obscure entries.
This article mentions that this number includes both North Korean and South Korean words, and I assume that it covers all dialects in both regions, so that explains some of it.
Still, that seems like a crazy amount. Does anyone have any insight into this?
Language changes. Insisting that a word isn’t ‘proper’ because it isn’t in the dictionary is both a losing battle and highly irritating. A word is put into the dictionary when there’s enough statistical evidence that it is widely used by a specific language group. A lot of words that are currently in the dictionary started out as fringe vocabulary that gradually seeped into the common consensus. Choosing to belittle somebody because their use of language doesn’t adhere to what is in the dictionary is rude and diminishes emerging dialects.
Grammar, syntax, and morphology are a different matter. I’m referring specifically to words that do or don’t appear in the dictionary.
Thanks for reading.
Here at the sub, we use some terminology when making posts and helping users out. While it's usually not super important you know exactly what these terms mean and what some things stand for, I'm sure there are people out there who are interested in knowing what all this terminology actually means. So I present this glossary of basic Wii terminology.
Do note that these terms are in no particular order.
IOS - Stands for IOP Operating System. As the name implies, IOS is to the Wii as Windows is to a computer. It's the operating system. It forms the basis of pretty much everything that is done on the Wii.
NAND - The Wii's main storage medium. NAND is not an acronym, it stands for NOT AND, which is a type of logic gate. It is called this because at the circuit level NAND memory is very similar to the aforementioned logic gate. On the Wii, the NAND houses boot1, boot2, IOS, and much more.
DOL - One of the Wii's executable types. It was previously use... keep reading on reddit ➡
So many times I have resorted to Urban dictionary to learn a new phrase or a new lingo the kids are using. If you interact with people IRL or on the internet, this is as crucial a place to gain knowledge as a wiki!
This is extremely personal my sister is high key being a bitch rn. Since fucking birth i have called her nina and apparently someone showed her on urban dictionary it can mean something sexual so now she doesnt want to be called it but at the same time I have spent 16 years of my life calling you nina stop being salty as fuck if I mess up like bitch you are aware your name is yurina that shit is like Japanese as fuck but you are getting all stressed because your younger sister and your younger brother call you nina. You dont see me complaining like bitch my name is Kenta in elementary people said my now sounds like the name of a sword.
I just found this sub and I wanted to vent.
If you’re reading a fanfic and come across a word you don’t know, unless it’s slang, unless you live in North Korea and have crazy restricted internet access, look it up.
Go to your preferred search engine and type “(whatever the word is) definition” and the first thing that pops up should be right.
Don’t leave a review that just asks for the definition of a word. If you’re reading a fanfic you’re already on the damn internet, look it up!
I’m not a review-nazi, like this is seriously my only pet peeve. If you’re going to ask for a definition in a review you had better include a detailed explanation of why you can’t look it up yourself or don’t understand the result you got.
The nicest way I’ve found to reply to these, without going ballistic or being a total dick, is to say “I’m not sure of all this word’s uses, you should look it up so I don’t misinform you”.
I learned next to nothing.
I had once downloaded a huge JSON from the internet and it had become difficult to get a sense of the keys and how they were nested (even with prettyprinting - because the values were long-ass alphanumerics). So I created this package (inspired by Spark's
Now it is as simple as:
from print_schema import print_schema
It will mean so much to me if you vets could review this! :)
Got another definition? Add it here!
I am looking for a Latin to English dictionary to get and have no idea which one to buy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Let’s mock a person with low intelligence in today’s edition
Being extremely new to the foibles of C#, I need a little help with the Dictionary class.
To convert a Java Map<String, ?> to C# I c an use Dictionary<String, xx>, but what do I use for 'xx'?
In the Java code the ? is a wildcard so that it could be int, boolean, String, float etc...
I can't find any proper Javanese-English dictionary.
This is the only one that I found but it's too expensive, I would prefer one that's available online. Unfortunately Google Translate is not too good, I'm looking for a good alternative.
Terima kasih untuk bantuan kalian.
