A professor's self-immolation puts the spotlight on the fragile future of Russia's minority languages

Many people discussing Razin's death seem bewildered that anyone would use minority languages in daily life, let alone die for them—an attitude by no means limited to Russia.

  • vusayf asked: How different is Dari as a dialect from Farsi, if at all? Trying to learn, a wonderful Afghani community is a part of my new home

  • iranian-diaspora answered: Dari is the more ancient form of Farsi that was spoken centuries ago. Filler words for Farsi in Iran are French and filler words for Farsi in Afghanistan are Russian. There are differences but they’re mutually understandable

Thanks for uploading funny video! I think this comedian knows kanji very well. He smoothly wrote “鬱” (meaning: depression). Many people in Japan can’t write this character without help of dictionary.

Revised Romanization of Korean - Wikipedia

“The Revised Romanization of Korean (국어의 로마자 표기법; gugeoui romaja pyogibeop; lit. "Roman-letter notation of the national language") is the official Korean language romanization system in South Korea proclaimed by Ministry of Culture and Tourism to replace the older McCune–Reischauer system. The new system eliminates diacritics in favor of digraphs and adheres more closely to Korean phonology than to a suggestive rendition of Korean phonetics for non-native speakers.”

“what's ‘comrade’ in persian?”

farsizaban answered:

Rafigh - رفیق

Iranian communists used that word, it literally means friend.

Japanese: dōshi (同志), which literally means a person who shares the same ideal. Leftist political movements have strikingly declined in today’s Japan, though.
