Main Question or Discussion Point

Have you ever heard of Lapp, Batak toba, Ibibio, Tamazight, Tamil, Gascon ? If yes what are they? Are they spoken languages? I must admit that I've never heard of any of them other than Tamil(Tamil's tigers:uhh:). Since I really don't have enough time right now to search for them, any sort of information is highly appreciated. Just give me a brief information. Someting like where theey're spoken if they're languages...

Thanks in advance:smile:
BTW, please don't throw a link at me since I really don't have time to check it now:redface:

Lapp is spoken by Laplanders in northern Sweden, Norway, Finland and the Kola Peninsula of Russia. When my kids were younger, they too were Laplanders.
Batak Toba is is an Austronesian / Malayo-Polynesian language that originates from Northern Sumatra, in Indonesia.
The Ibibio people are a tribe in southeast Nigeria.
The Berber language known as Tamazight is spoken in northern Africa (Morocco and Algeria).
Tamil is a Dravidian language spoken predominantly by Tamils in India, Sri Lanka and Singapore.
Gascon is a dialect of the Occitan language. Gascon is mostly spoken in Gascony and Bearn in France.

Oh, boy, that was a slow one to sink in. I glossed over it entirely on the first read, then sat staring at it a while after you said you got it, wondering what you got, and s-l-o-o-o-o-w-l-y, it finally sunk in and I got it too. :groan: (<-one of these days that will be a real smiley :biggrin:)

Aarggghhh - I was even dumber.
I thought maybe jimmysnider was Swedish/Finnish or married to one.
So I meant it as a joke - like one day you come home and your kids aren't goths anymore, they are dressed in colourful knitted caps and reindeer skin boots.

I must get out more ....

s-l-o-o-o-o-w-l-y,
From time to time I write things that are meant to entertain rather than inform. I would be a liar if I didn't admit that some of the reactions please me. But this response strokes me well. I aim to have my words sit in the cup of the ear for a while before wending their way in. That is why I write so much better than I tell jokes. Much of my material is shamelessly lifted. This one was my father's joke, though he may have lifted it himself.

Really? How do you know?
Well you know my bf's ex-gf's sis is also a laplander. You know when I start dating him he was hardly able to speak English(I mean his English was a bit worse than me) But now he claims that he's able to speak all those languages mentioned in 1st post!Now I'm wondering if he's cheating on me!:grumpy::devil:
:rofl:
