What an epic quiz! Also accept spellings chetiri/chyetiri (4 in Russian) and dvye (alternate spelling of 2 in Russian)?
+1
level 59
Jun 18, 2015
Thanks! I've accepted dvye. Chetiri/chyetiri aren't correct, I'm afraid. In Russian it's spelled четыре, where ы is transliterated as y (the Latin alphabet doesn't have a better match) and е as e/ye. Y (ы) sounds like i to an untrained ear, but can be distinguished by a fluent speaker. Unstressed e and i sound alike in Russian, but one needs to remember the spelling. P.S. I know this because I have heard a lot of Russian, I live in a town where 20% speak Russian natively. Wikipedia confirms all this as well.

I agree with Jerry. The frustrating part was the "CH" sound which this quiz doesn't accept.

In Swedish there is a mistake: 4 is "fyra", not fyre.

It must've been a typo. In a quiz with 330 answers, I didn't expect to type everything right. Fixed.

Four in Slovak = štyri, not štryi ;) Puzzled me that 3% found it despite the typo anyway

Does this quiz use Nynorsk or Bokmal? (Two different dialects of Norwegian, Bokmal has more speakers)
+1
level 59
Mar 4, 2016
It uses both. The only difference between Bokmål and Nynorsk in the numbers 1 to 10 is the word for 1. Bokmål uses "ett" and Nynorsk uses "eitt". To be neutral, I accept both.

you can use also use 'syv' in norwegian, but only in bokmål

What an awesome quiz! :) I consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable about European languages, and still I could finish only 15 languages fully (it finally paid off to have studied Slavic languages!). I didn't know any in Maltese, Romanian, Greek, Albanian, Irish, Turkish or Tatar, but I got a few in most of those columns by guessing. That doesn't really count as knowing, though. Tänan!

The Hungarian nine is kilenc and not kilents.

When counting in Greek we usually say "ena" (neuter form) and not "enas" (masculine form). Epta should also be an acceptable answer for the Greek seven.

Fixed "kilenc". "ena" and "epta" are now accepted. Thanks!

I aced Danish, German and English and most of Norwegian and Swedish. Other than that, I just typed numbers that I know I had heard from somewhere.

You should have added Latin! My favorite language! It's technically European... A very impressive quiz!
+1
level 59
Nov 2, 2017
I picked the languages based on the number of native speakers in Europe, so Latin didn't qualify. Admittedly, Latin has been an important language in European history but I wouldn't want to change the quiz any more.

Awesome quiz I got 122 which is 37% which beats 77%. But I must admit I got a lot by guessing. For instance if I knew dvo and dvi excisted, id try the other vowels aswell. Plus sometimes a word showed up which I had typed differently then I typed it as it was shown and sometimes two were shown and I typed the other one. It might not really be Knowing the words, but still it is a puzzle to solve and I thought that was rather inventive ;) worked a lot of times.

It would be nice if as on your colour quiz, when the results show up the ones you didnt get are filled in with read on the grid. On the other hand, this layout felt better, turkish and tartan next to the germanic languages looked very weird.

not that maltese belongs with germanic but it looks a lot better :) I think I would (ve) do(ne) it as follows: germanic, romance, then either uralic and greek/albanian/irish+maltese, or slavic+turkish/tatar.

basicly paring redwith brown and grey with purple and darkblue.

btw beforehand I never realised estonian was so similar to finnish and hungarian. I knew finnish and hungarian were closely related, an interesting fact that most people dont seem to know (outside quizsites... I havent met anyone in real life that knew how close hungarian and finnish were. In fact I think most people even think finnish is similar to swedish etc) I knew there were other uralic languages, but never thought much about what and where they were. Basicly usually only had finnish and hungarian in mind.

It is nice to learn new stuff :)
