“How many words do I need to know in order to be conversationally fluent in a language?”

“How many words do I need to know in order to be conversationally fluent in a language?” | TermCoord | Scoop.it

How many words do you need to know in order to gain conversational fluency? How many words are there in some of the world's major languages? What's the Pareto Principle? What's learning through assimilation? These are some of the questions I will try to answer in this post!

Terminology Coordination of the European Parliament's insight:

“How many words do I need to know to be fluent in another language? It is a good question but there is no single sensible answer to this question because it’s difficult to count the number of words in a language".

Putting two and two together | OUPblog

Putting two and two together | OUPblog | TermCoord | Scoop.it
As somebody who loves words and English literature, I have often been assumed to be a natural enemy of the mathematical mind. If we’re being honest, my days of calculus and the hypotenuse are behind me, but with those qualifications under my belt, I did learn that the worlds of words and numbers are not necessarily as separate as they seem. Quite a few expressions use numbers (sixes and sevens, six of one and half a dozen of the other, one of a kind, etc.) but a few are more closely related to mathematics than you’d expect.
Terminology Coordination of the European Parliament's insight:

Do you love languages or mats? It doesn't matter because the worlds of words and numbers are more closely related each other than you would expect.... Try to guess the sense transferred to the broader (non-mathematical sense) from these expressions: "The lowest common denominator", "Go off at a tangent" and "Two and two made five".

Google versus human -- how good is Google Translate?

Google versus human -- how good is Google Translate? | TermCoord | Scoop.it
Earlier this year Google introduced a number of enhancements to its Translate service. As well as written text this now makes it able to transcribe and translate audio.
Terminology Coordination of the European Parliament's insight:

Digital services can act as interpreters and technology plays an important role in cross-cultural communication. But professional interpreters cannot be replaced because they can provide the most appropriate term in order to avoid misunderstanding.

 

Technological progress improve all areas of our lives, making communication and information more accessible than ever, but it still struggles with capturing nuance and its translated texts suffer from poor word choices that harm readability.

The Indo-European family of languages could have been introduced by inhabitants of the Russian steppes, according to the latest research

The Indo-European family of languages could have been introduced by inhabitants of the Russian steppes, according to the latest research | TermCoord | Scoop.it
An international team of scientists has discovered what may be the missing link in the ancestry of European peoples. Using a new technique to analyse genetic material taken from 69 sets of remains, the researchers have suggested that a considerable group of nomad hunter-gatherers from what is now southern Russia moved into the central parts …
Terminology Coordination of the European Parliament's insight:

Researchers suggest that a group of nomad hunter-gatherers from what is now southern Russia moved into the central parts of the continent some 4,500 years ago, contributing to, or even starting, the spread of Indo-European languages. Currently, the majority of languages spoken in Europe belong to the Indo-European family, a huge group comprising more than 400 languages and dialects spoken across Asia and Europe. This latest research supports the “Steppe hypothesis” that the Indo-European family of languages was introduced by inhabitants of the Russian steppes. However, it competes with the “Anatolian hypothesis”, according to which the first speakers of these languages were the Near Eastern farmers who moved to Europe seven or eight millennia ago.
