Sprache wurde für mich erst nach einem längeren Auslandsaufenthalt interessant. Damals habe ich gelernt, dass man tatsächlich in einer anderen Sprache denken und träumen kann. Man kann dadurch sogar einen Teil seiner Muttersprache (Schwäbisch) verlernen.

Seither interessiere ich mich dafür, wie verschieden Sprachen und Dialekte sind und wie gleich sie doch wieder sind, welche Nuancen eine Aussage klar machen oder verwässern, wie Mehrdeutigkeiten Spaß machen können.

Mit Sprache kann man jonglieren, balancieren und ohne Netz vom Hochseil stürzen.

comment German term for 'Frenemy'?
@Chris: perfectly right. This is one of the few rules of the reform I hate so much that I always deliberately refuse to follow it. Note e.g. the inconsequencies when spelling "Sie", and "Ihr" (§65). Why should uppercase be allowed in letters only but not in direct speech? However I edited my answer because we are not my personal way of spelling container here ;)

Great conclusion :) Please consider to include at least a short excerpt from the content of the page you refer to. This is important as this page may not to be accessible in the future, or some users may not be able to get there at all. Thank you.
