So this is a little 'would you rather?' Thread for one and all to do and maybe chat about your opinions with each other if you have differing ones. I'll post one every two-three days to give a chance to talk about the last one. If progress is slow then I'll slow down on the posts. Starting one is: "Would you rather be able to understand a language, but not understand it OR Would you rather be able to speak the language, but not be able to understand it if you were hearing it" For the fine details, to you it would sound like you were speaking your own language but to whatever (they don't have to be human) you speaking to, it would sound like their own tongue. Same goes for the other one, except in reverse e.g. If anything was communicating, then you and only you could hear it in your own language, therefore would not know what language it was and wouldn't know how to speak it.
