Do you think that Icelandic is a beautiful language?

I always found it ironic how people would say that German is an ugly language but other Germanic languages are pretty?

  • Not really Raneem, though I'm not a fan of germanic languages with the exception of English and that's been rather far removed to a point.
    for the longest time I actually hated my last name because it sounds so gutteral

  • Based purely on how it sounds, I like Icelandic. Linguistically, though, I don't appreciate some of the changes that happened between it and Old Norse. I feel similar about High German: I love how it sounds, but linguistically I hate the leveling of unstressed vowels into schwas that began in Middle High German.

  • Not especially. If I had to say any language was 'beautiful', I'd say it was French.

  • That sounds surprisingly more like Finnish and Swedish, I expected something different. I love the German language, but really dislike the sound of the Finnish language. I think at least in that video Icelandic sounded monotonic in the same way Finnish does. Didn't like it that much.

      Yeah, but if you want to hear the most beautiful language listen to songs in Gaelic.
