Lack Of Skilled Workers Is Cause Of Unemployment

>> ^radx:

The folks at Siemens have been singing their tune for years. Give them <100 qualified candidates for every opening and they will proclaim a shortage of skilled workers. Despicable bunch of wankers, if you ask me.

I think it's a ploy to get a broader qualified workforce so they don't have to pay as much as they do now.

Cool, did not know that. The one we get to hear most often is the ghoti = fish example for unphoneticness of English.

Your point about the sounds shifting is interesting, I've noticed that if I watch a long enough (subtitled!) Dutch movie, by the end I can pick up a few words which are similar or the same as English once a few sounds are changed a little.

I've onyl read ballads and such from these periods, I can read middle english Ok, old english: Not really, only if I really get into it and learn some symbols again. Reading frisian is far easier than understanding it by hearing, the same probably goes for swabian. Most of the times you just have to shift some different sounds to certain letters and you've got an approximation of a more standard german.
The northern german intonation (of their dialect) however is hell for me to understand, that's completely different, as you said. Swabian is spoken more softly and sonorant in the back of the throat, whereas northern german sounds 'headier' and nasal to me.

Ron Paul's Message to Occupy Wall Street - END THE FED!

DerHasisttot says...

Current Ron Paul would not have sent troops to Europe in WW 1 or 2 as far as I understand his principles (if he had hypothetically timetravelled and had very hypothetically become president). Correct?
