You do know that the Arabs are known for their long love poem, don't you?

they do? o.O i don't understand a word of it!! except those that got incorporated into my own language, that is :x

yeah, crazy arabs, huh?? perhaps what survived in books is a stylized form of the language? people didn't really speak like that in the streets, just in books =)

Yeah we don't speak like that lol... I can hardly understand what those crazy lovers are saying to each other... goodness me, one of the most difficult things I had to study.. but perhaps that's because I am not too much with poem and that stuff in the first place

no, it's because the language back then had different meanings. not only it's stylized, it had lots of very specific meanings we have no idea of. it takes a historian to help decipher old poetry =)

I don't assume that. Even German can be nice. If spoken by nice people.
