This is a golden thread! That means that if you post before midnight on Friday the 20th August, you'll have an opportunity to win the ginormous prize of 5000 rep!
The more you post, the more opportunities you'll have to win! But please keep on topic and don't spam, otherwise your posts will be removed.

So the question in this thread is...

If you could speak any language on earth, which one would you pick?

As someone who likes languages and language learning, this is essentially an impossible question for me!

On my list would be Portuguese, Catalan, Cornish, Turkish and maybe Te Reo Māori.

In fact, I'm going to have a mull on my answer, and I'll update you later on in a new post, because the more posts, the better chance I have of winning the prize! :yep:

Golden Threads1 - Sum up 2021 in a gif or meme!
2 - If you could speak any language on Earth which would you pick?
3 - If you could be part of any film/tv universe, what would it be?
4 - What would you put in a TSR Time Capsule?
5 - If you could create an emoji, what would it look like?
6 - Which animal should be renamed and to what?
7 - What did you wish you'd learnt at school but didn't?
8 - When did something start out badly, but turn out great in the end?
9 - How many times can you repost Golden Fred in this Golden thread?
10 - If a TSR user could narrate your life, who would you like it to be?

Does it have to be a current language, or can it be a historical language (even one we have limited knowledge of)?

My list of contending languages would be Ancient Greek, Latin, Arabic, Hebrew and Japanese.
I clearly don't have a taste for languages with a rich history...
