I know what your saying old chap and in theory it does have rules but try putting them into practice, espeacily with furniture, how can you possibly know if a table is say masculine or neutral or feminine and a wardrobe is what? Do you see where im coming from, i lived in Germany for 4 years and i can speak it quite well but my grammar is rubbish, i even went to night school to do a Goether istitute recognised german langauge course, and the tutor told us to go home and stick labels on all our objects at home for example a Der on the table etc etc, as this was the only way to really learn it, as the rules for actual practical application were not set in stone. Hebrew has changed slightly from its original form and is not classed as a commonly spoken langauge.

UTHERExactly my point, in which case how come all furniture isnt neutral? some objects can be masculine and some can be feminine and some even neutral? Das Tisch, Die kuche etc etc

you've got to be joking!! does this look like a "neutral" object? ;)

OK, they don't follow rules, but "guidelines". stick to the guidelines and you'll get quite far, but to master any language you either have to be the last one alive who speaks that language, or having lived there, preferably grown up there.

i'm not german, and i too have some problems with M, F and N (although i can to some degree compare to my own language, which is remotely similar to german), but the system is quite clever, just look at russian. ("to be" is normally dropped because the message is clear even without)

All other languages are inferior to the most excellent Finnish language. Case closed. You sure know how to hijack a thread. madx.gif

LOL funny thread.... invasion of sicily --> arian warriors --> most 'sophisticated' language (in my opinion latin by the way) --> german grammar --> ??? (what next? :D )

Exactly my point, in which case how come all furniture isnt neutral? some objects can be masculine and some can be feminine and some even neutral? Das Tisch, Die kuche etc etc

tables are still masculine (der Tisch) and it is "Die Küche" or "die Kueche" (in the case of missing ä,ö,ß,ü on your keyboard). there is no superior language on the world, they are just more appropriate for this or that. most of the musicians are using the english language for their songs, while operas are likely to be written in italian. On the other side most of the worldshaking literature is written in german and also french. Or, did you ever try to solve a crossword puzzle in chinese, it's not possible 'cause letters have meanings in theirselves. However, I am offering german language courses with specialisation on military expressions on special offer for 10€/session. ROFL. :p :p :p

I actually played this Husky conversion online with the guy who converted it. He stated that he was currently doing the same to Monte Cassino, I only hope he will take a look at Salerno also. Does anyone know if the Italian theatre will at some time be implemented in FH? It would make this great mod even greater.
