>>4016 Radical politics in the open. Worker rights. The government acting as a mediator between porky, their own interest, and the proletariat. Genuine proletarian culture (music, food, dance, etc). Now it's mostly about violence and money. Visibly radical leftists get shot. Politics is a mix of being US's lapdog, neoliberalism, narco infiltration at every level of government with no exception. Culture has been replaced with manufactured Mexican culture, imported manufactured American Culture, and worst of all, narco culture. It's getting worse. The war against narcos has only made them become more assimilated with the government. We live in a narco-state. Post 2008: Night scene died from one day to another after the war started. This killed a generation's night scene. Social gatherings shifted to house parties. Counter-culture is dead.

Generic advice for learning a European language Comrade 09/04/2019 (Wed) 14:36:48 No. 5272 [Reply] [Last]
Before you learn anything else, learn how the various letter combinations are usually pronounced. For example, in English -tion is pronounced like shn for some reason, and in German it's pronounced like -tsyon. German sp is pronounced like the shp in hashpipe, and there are many other regular patterns like that. Autistically drill down this stuff BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE (I know I repeat myself).
>B-but anon, I can open any book introducing a language and it starts with a bit of that
I DON'T MEAN JUST A BIT. Try to get to the point where you can read something without an accent while you still don't have the faintest idea what the text is even about, reading it like a native when he encounters words he does not know and just follows the most usual pronunciation patterns of his language.

Suppose you don't do that, how do you learn the spelling and pronunciation of a word then? It will take much longer since it will seem to you like there's a big arbitrary element in the way the words are written – meaning a ton of rote memorization – and only after a lot of memorizing work will the regular patterns slowly reveal themselves. But if you start with drilling the regular patterns, the part of the writing system that looks arbitrary to you will be much smaller. It will be much easier then to guess how something is written just by hearing and it will be much easier to remember words.

>>5317 It's never too late.
In the late 90s and early aughts, there were two or three iterations of You Don't Know Jack in German that were pretty good. Might be useful for becoming fluent in German. (A similar quiz game is "Weisse Bescheid" from 2007, though I can't vouch for the quality of that.)
>>5317 It's never too late. I learned Chinese and I didn't start until I was 20.
how can I find out what most of the "letter combination" pronunciations are for a certain language? like the type described in the first paragraph of OP
>>5699 Wikipedia's IPA help pages are OK for a general idea, although sometimes they're inaccurate or unspecific and you should always cross-check them with individual audio files for IPA characters since the "English equivalents" are sometimes totally off: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:IPA_keys https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:IPA_navigation So, for example, for German <ch> you'd click on the IPA character on the IPA column and then you can listen to an audio recording of the sound: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiceless_velar_fricative The orthographies of most languages are more phonemic than that of English, with exceptions like French, so usually you can just figure it out by knowing the individual letters and digraphs and whatnot. With French it's not necessarily the case, but English is the worst with this stuff at least in Europe (but has nothing on Tibetan) so you're usually good to go if you pick up on a thing. Also, premium cringe from the Finnish IPA page: >[b], [f], [ɡ], and [ʃ] occur only in loanwords. In casual speech, they may be replaced with [p], [ʋ], [k], and [s], respectively. >casual speech Country bumpkins and old people might do that, but it's very cringe if you do it in Helsinki unless you're like 60 or older (then it's only kinda cringe). As Finns get old, they might lose the ability to pronounce those sounds for some reason even if they used to be able to pronounce them just fine... or at least I've noticed my mum doing that. >>5316 Beware of false friends when doing this, though! Cognates can sometimes diverge a lot in their meanings.

Baltic Peoples Union Political system: Council Republic (Because western capitalist pigs can't pronounce "taryba" for it to have been incorporated into English) The electorate votes for local candidates from the VSKP (All Union Communist Party) for the ST (Council of the Union) lower house and the TT (Council of Nationalities) upper house, which forms the BLSAT (Supreme Council of Baltic Peoples Union) - the highest legislative branch of government. BLSAT in turn appoints the Council of Ministers and the Premier of the Union, who act as the executive branch. From 1999 on, many measures limiting the individual influence of party officials and BLSAT councilmen were implemented, including term limits and right of recall, but most importantly a process that would choose the nominees to the elections by lot, as well as a yearly lottery that invites new party members which currently is the only way to join the VSKP. BPU is a federation, composed of Lithuanian, Estonian and Polish council republics. Head of state: Premier Stasys Spalis Capital of Lithuanian CR and administrative center for the Union: Kernavė Capital of Estonian CR: Tallinn Capital of Polish CR: Warsaw Largest city: Gdanskas (IRL Gdansk) Languages: Official: Lithuanian, Polish, Estonian, Yiddish, Gudian (Belarusian with some Lithuanian traits). Dialects: Prussian, Latvian. Ethnic composition: Estonians and Poles are the homogeneous inhabitants of their respective CR's. However LCR is far more diverse. Due to the ethnic assimilation policy pursued both by the Viešpats (emperor) and the nobility before the revolution, many of the original languages of the ethnic minorities in the republic have been destroyed, or almost completely assimilated into become dialects. Prussian and Latvian vary very little from Lithuanian, however the Gudian shows significant differences, which were preserved by Belarusian national liberation figures during the 19th century. After the revolution, the Belarusian question was debated, however, since the larger cities were assimilated, it was deemed unecessary to create a separate republic. Yet these days the question has become a touchy subject, as industrialization now has brought most of the previously underdeveloped Belarusian regions up, and this has lead to an increasing sentiment for a creation of a separate republic. Ever since the 12th century the region was deemed as a safe haven for Jewish communities, hence a sizable segment of the urban population today is Jewish, to the point that Yiddish was recognized as a national language in 1924.

>>5555 By the 1990's, the Union was experiencing many difficulties - stagnant economy, lagging technological progress, rising poverty and nationalistic grumblings from the RC's. The VSKP was split between the always inactive conservatives, reformers and the hardliners. The government was in a deadlock by the 1997 as to what is needed to be done, and by 1998 the discontent officer core launched a coup against the government in a bid to restore stability, or so was claimed. The rank and file of the army wasn't very supportive of the command, and neither were the citizens of Kernave. While the coup leaders successfully occupied the BLSAT and arrested many of its members, the still remained. Around it loyalist forces were rallied, composed of a few local army regiments and of local citizens, ready to protect the ministry. The result of this was a small battle in Kernave. After three days, the coup was stopped and it leaders either fled or were arrested. This left the power of the BPU in the hands of the minister council, which at the time was composed of hardliners. It would, over the next year, lead with emergency powers, eventually passing the 1999 reforms and returning the BLSAT to work. However, over the period of the coup, the Ruthenian and Crimean RC's had declared their independence and split off from the BPU, receiving western protection. I'd go more in depth into what was before 20th century, but I can't be bothered now Also, since I mention the off shoot republics, should I also make another post for them as well or no? Military capabilities: BPU possess a sizeable and well trained military. However, due to the cuts to defense spending in the 00's, it is lagging behind in terms of technology. The Union also has a sizable arsenal of 216 nuclear warheads, however only 9 of these have been modernized and are treated as up-to-date. Economy: BPU is a fully industrialized nation. All industries are state controlled and are directly accountable to the VPK (State Planning Committee). Most of these are overseen by a state official, however with the 2002 reforms workplace self-management was incentivized, leading to more worker-controlled industries. From 2006 on, all agriculture is state-controlled, as all collective farms were absorbed to state farms. Economic growth is modest, as it has slowed downed from the boom in the early 2000 when the BPU finally started expansion into the digital sector. Currency: Baltas, divided into 100 kopeks. 'Foreign policy: Friendship is promoted with all fellow socialist states. A policy of mutual coexistence with capitalist states is pursued, for now. Neighboring splinter states from the Union are regarded with a feigned benevolence, with the eventual goal of reintegration towards them. Future goals: The BPU pursues a goal of reintegration of the splintered CR's that have broken off after the 1998 coup, however it does it so through political interference and currently avoids any direct confrontation. International solidarity is a secondary goal, as the BLSAT for now sees this as a goal as too resource intensive to pursue. Life of the average citizen: The situation has improved massively since 1998. Housing is available for all and reforms to the education and healthcare sectors have been a success. However luxuries are still rather scarce. Only about 64% of the population own a car. Internet access in available to around 79% of the population, however the computers produced for the public, while more durable, are than their western counterparts. Culture industry saw revitalization in the past decade, and a few film and video game releases saw small success in global markets.

>>5532 I don't think there's any rush, this isn't the most active board anyway and I assume we probably won't get that many people so it'll be slow in any case. One option would be to try getting some from /GET/, considering the civil war thread there is pretty active and it's not that different even though it's pretty different? >>5542 >that map Anyway, I added your country to the blank map, not sure if I filled all the right islands though. >>5555 I hope you don't mind that I fixed the layering of your country on the map since it was offset a little bit to the left and the coastline was aligned to the river map rather than the blank map. Also, nice quads! BUT ACTUALLY What do you guys think, should we just be using the river map instead of the blank one? It looks messier, but it'd objectively be more practical. If we do decide to go with that, I removed the ugly maritime border lines.
>>5589 I'd say go with the rivers one. Also will be easier for those who join fresh to create their nation with good borders. Also I think I'm going to do some retcons to my nations history, as that was the last part that I've wrote in and I think it shows. Main change for now is that Ruthenia and Crimea were never part of the BPU and instead have declared their independance after the collapse of the Lithuanian Empire. Also I'll ask again here, should I create these two independant nations and insert them to the map, or should I just retcon my nations history further so that the fate of the Ukrainian region remains ambiguous?
>>5590 >Also will be easier for those who join fresh to create their nation with good borders. Yeah. >should I just retcon my nations history further so that the fate of the Ukrainian region remains ambiguous? Does it really matter unless we get a bunch of new people on this and actually get it going, assuming no one is going to make a country in that region that'd retcon it for you?
