And I repeat that also many Swiss people make confusion on this topic and I get often contradicted.
Die Landessprachen sind Deutsch, Französisch, Italienisch und Rätoromanisch.
Le lingue nazionali sono il tedesco, il francese, l’italiano e il romancio.
Les langues nationales sont l’allemand, le français, l’italien et le romanche.
Las linguas naziunalas èn il tudestg, il franzos, il talian ed il rumantsch.
La Constitución española de 1978.
El castellano es la lengua española oficial del Estado. Todos los españoles tienen el deber de conocerla y el derecho a usarla.
Las demás lenguas españolas serán también oficiales en las respectivas Comunidades Autónomas de acuerdo con sus Estatutos.
La riqueza de las distintas modalidades lingüísticas de España es un patrimonio cultural que será objeto de especial respeto y protección.
(yeah i know you're not really meant to advertise your own quizzes on other people's JetPunk but this one is related)
I'll add the suggested variants for Ukrainian and Belarusian to the pipeline of changes.
However, I am sorry to say that nowhere in Icelandic law is Icelandic the official language of Iceland. It is by far de facto, but not officially. Strangely, Icelandic sign language is the official language of hearing impaired Icelanders.
"Icelandic is the national language of the Icelandic people and the official language in Iceland."
It's just a misspelling
Also South Africa is hogging all the languages. I guess it makes sense in post-apartheid SA to elevate all the major African languages into an official equality, but it looks odd next to e.g. India which has similar language diversity.
Otherwise I would expect to see "Nauru ... none" in the capitals quiz, there's a much stronger case for this one.
Sign Language ?
Also, a note about Slovak/Slovene and the addition of -ian: I believe Slovakian is a correct equivalent but Slovenian isn't, but I'm not 100% sure.
I get Amharic, but not even close to the rest
buck1017: OK, I'll add just Haitian to be accepted after the next update.
I am literally learning this may not be the case here...wth nz!
Also a little question, how did you make a question have more than one answer? I've always had that dbout. One expample of this is South Africa.
I was wondering the same thing as someone2018 too, like maybe the government keeps a video archive of laws signed in NZSL.
I have trouble finding any official website stating that English would be an official language. Does anyone know any good links?
The interesting part is this: 日本の国語は日本語であるとか、公用語は日本語であるなどと定める条文はないんだ。ただ、法律上「国語」という用例はあるし、そのような条文は日本語のことを国語といっているのだと理解できるよ。
To quickly Google translate that: There is no provision that states that Japanese national language is Japanese and official language is Japanese. However, there is an example in law called "national language", and it can be understood that such a clause means that Japanese is a national language.
However, Farsi should be an acceptable type-in for the language of Iran, which it apparently wasn't. This will be changed in the next reset of the quiz.
I looked at the Dutch government's own website where it implicitly states that Dutch is indeed the official language, and that Fries (Frisian) is the second official language in that particular province. Papiamento and English are also considered as official languages in the Caribbean Netherlands.
English, Urdu, pashto, Punjabi,Sindhi, saraiki, Baltit, Farsi, Hindko, Baluchi, Brahui etc. That’s not even exhaustive.
Now divide the land area of India by Pakistan, and multiply the languages above, and that’s APPROXIMATELY how many MAIN languages are spoken in India.
I don’t know that much about China, but seeing as how you missed Cantonese I’m guessing you made similar omission there as well. Please correct.
(From America so ignorant to this stuff)
South Africa and Ethiopia are killers
By the way, Chinese is not a language but more like a language family since for example, Mandarin and Cantonese are definitely mutual unintelligible, so please do not include Chinese as a correct type in.
Nice quiz though
