        And? Videogames, anime, hustory documentals, music, they all have audible language too. This thread is not more related to IQfy than to those others.
        Btw it's english and french.

        The aesthetic quality of prose, or verse, is judged not by how the arrangement of marks look on paper, but by how the words encoded by them sound.

        And what makes this more related to IQfy than to IQfy, IQfy, or IQfy?

      i'm approaching fluency in french and will soon start learning italian !
      earlier on in my french studies i told my self that i'll never learn another language after this as i'll be content with french and english, but now i can read french with ease I want to continue with more language learning... i now understand those people who spend huge amount of time studying languages, it really is addictive
      anyway, being able to read proust in french was my original goal, which I have accomplished; being able to read dante in italian will be my next one

        I'm still far away from my goal of reading French as easily as I do English but I hope to get there soon
        I hope Italian will be easy to learn

    >All, who are conversant in the Italian, cannot but observe, that it is the softest, the sweetest, the most harmonious, not only of any modern Tongue, but even beyond any of the Learned. It seems indeed to have been invented for the sake of Poetry and Musick: the Vowels are so abounding in all Words, especially in the Terminations of them, that excepting some few Monosyllables, the whole Language ends in them. Then the Pronunciation is so manly and so sonorous, that their very speaking has more of Musick in it, than Dutch, Poetry and Song. It has withal deriv'd so much Copiousness and Eloquence from the Greek and Latin in the composition of Words, and the formation of them, that (if after all, we must call it barbarous) 'tis the most beautiful and most learned of any Barbarism in Modern Tongues. This Language has in a manner been refin'd and purified from the Gothick, ever since the time of Dantè, which is above four hundred Years ago; and the French, who now cast a longing Eye to their Country, are not less ambitious to possess their Elegance in Poetry and Musick: in both which they labour at Impossibilities. 'Tis true indeed, they have reform'd their Tongue, and brought both their Prose and Poetry to a Standard: the Sweetness as well as the Purity is much improv'd, by throwing off the unnecessary Consonants, which made their Spelling tedious, and their pronunciation harsh: But after all, as nothing can be improv'd beyond its own Species, or farther than its original Nature will allow: as an ill Voice though never so thoroughly instructed in the Rules of Musick, can never be brought to sing harmoniously, nor many an honest Critick, ever arrive to be a good Poet, so neither can the natural harshness of the French or their perpetual ill Accent, be ever refin'd into perfect Harmony like the Italian.
    >The English has yet more natural disadvantage than the French; our original Teutonique consisting most in Monosyllables, and those incumber'd with Consonants cannot possibly be freed from those Inconveniences. The rest of our Words, which are deriv'd from the Latin chiefly, and the French, with some small sprinklings of Greek, Italian and Spanish, are some relief in Poetry; and help us to soften our uncouth Numbers, which together with our English Genius, incomparably beyond the triffling of the French, in all the nobler Parts of Verse, will justly give us the Preheminence But, on the other hand, the Effeminacy of our pronunciation, (a defect common to us, and to the Danes) and our scarcity of female Rhymes, have left the advantage of musical composition for Songs, though not for recitative, to our neighbors.

    That’s my view on the sounds of languages as beauty or pleasant, whether I know what they’re saying or not.

      French has too many vowels. Consonants are the meat of language. Vowels are just the bread.

    Once again English proves itself the greatest language on Earth. Seriously, nothing else comes close to its raw beauty and precision.

      This is preposterous.
      English his ugly. It's only used worldwide because it's convenient for mercantile activities only, thanks to it's simplistic grammar.
      This means nothing of meaning will ever be said in english and no englishman will ever say something meaningful.

    English
    >Good:
    it's stress-timed, which is strictly superior to syllable-timed
    >Bad:
    too many DH and T sounds, too many consonants in general, non-rhotic R, words are taken from completely random families of languages so there aren't many correlations (hand > manipulation), bit dry and weak

    Italian:
    >Good:
    lots of vowels, words all have similar roots so there are many correlations (mano > manipolazione), also extremely flexible and able to be cool, intimidating, suave, or beautiful easily
    >Bad:
    It's syllable-timed.

    The best language in the world would be a completely stress-timed italian-like language.
