    these are literally the worst dictionary series for languages. they dont even try to use ordinary colloquial language as used on professional tv and news, they base their word choices on academic publications.

    I think that language learning for literature is moronic and mentally ill

    English, Russian, German, French, Spanish, seem like the most important, not sure about order though

    Romantic languages generally sound the most fluid and carry tonal qualities that make recitation poetically flavorful. English and German are the 2 best for technical and philosophical application, but can certainly possess artistic quality.

      Kek. All relevant today academic activity there was limited to technical sciences (oh, and marxism) in the 1950s-the 1980s. French is more relevant as an academic language. Even Dutch is more relevant, I think.

          It's nonsensical gibberish. There is a little point to learn Russian for acquiring academic knowledge if you can learn a proper language with a proper corpus of academic texts.

          For academic purposes mainly amount and quality of knowledge matter. Nobody gives a frick about the tonal quality. Anyway, do you know Russian and other languages to estimate and compare the tonal quality?

            I know. But you named me a moron who doesn't understand something about German and Russian.

            >which is why you dont see his point
            I see his point, but it is a stupid point. There is nothing special in Russian. Russian language extensively uses foreign words in its scientific lexicon, and I think that Latin words would be more natural in Roman languages than in Slavic one, for example.
            Russian language was lucky, because when the scientific revolution happened, Russian language had its own country/state/empire and resources to develop its scientific lexicon (the 18th...20th centuries). A few languages had the same opportunity.

        Also no Vedic Sanskrit, Classical Chinese, Latin, Greek, or Farsi. Very eurocentric list that denotes an embarassing lack of familiarity with some of the great pillars of literature.

      If you like the Western Canon and have an aptitude for languages, I don't understand why you wouldn't spend a few good years and just learn
      >French
      >German
      >Latin
      >Greek
      >Spanish
      >Italian
      >Russian
      This gives you access to 95% of the Western Canon in the original language and you will get Portuguese for free. This can all be done in 5-10 years if you have, say, 6 hours a day (wagecucks need not apply, so no b***hing please)

      thank god the best ones happen to also be all of the easiest ones. and very similar to each other so they just get easier the more of them you know.

    If you speak English already, then French should be the next choice for literature. I speak French as a second language and honestly believe that they have a superior literary tradition than the whole Anglo world combined. The sheer number of quality works they pumped out is mind-blowing. In my mind, Italian/German/Russian should be studied only if you are an autist obsessed by Dante/Post-Kantian Philosophy/Tolstoyevsky, respectively. French is a whole other world of untranslated gems to explore.

      French is my second language and as an anglophone it seems to me to be the best choice
      I don't even care that a lot of it is translated
      As someone interested in the Medieval period it's also strange that Medieval French literature is not talked about more often since there's so much out there that's not written in Latin
      Also I haven't tried learning Italian but Italian is the most likely candidate for my third language because I figure it'd probably be the easiest language for me to learn after French and there does seem to be a significant amount of Italian literature even if you exclude Dante
      I'd love to learn Russian but when I think about the time it'd take to get to 95% or so comprehension of Golden era Russian authors I cannot help but balk at the idea

        my french is passable (because leaf). after a couple years of studying my japanese is still dogshit so I was wondering if there was an easy fourth language I could work on on the side.
        italian was my conclusion for that purpose as well. if I was a musician I'd prefer portuguese but learning a language because you like bossa nova is kind of moronic.
        thank god almost no one is saying chinese. it seems useful but even knowing kanji I don't want to deal with the pain of learning that shit.

    Assuming you're a native English speaker, German and French probably give you the best bang for your buck in terms of learning. After that, Latin, Greek, and Russian all have hefty literary canons while still retaining a point
    of reference for an English speaker. Beyond those, I hear Farsi is beautiful, as well as classical Chinese, and Vedic Sanskrit, although the barrier to entry is kind of prohibitive.
