Watch this segment, until he is done with French.

The proposition is that the way a language sounds forms the personality one becomes, speaking it. A sensible idea of course. But explained here with unusual flourish.

He’s definitely gotten into the character of each language type, that’s for sure.. :lol: the gene/meme / mind/manner process in actuality.. playing out in real time.

Yes he is pretty good isn't he.
I was nearly sick with laughter of it. Preceded with crying.

Honestly one of the funniest things Ive seen recently, so I sampled it.

We'll need a particular context of course. :lol:

Or, sure, seriously.

Maybe a dissemination of esperanto would fit the bill right about now eliminating contextual varience. Maybe that crazy young Polish youth could more appropriately fill us in, since it's discoveror was Polish.

Let's just stick to the subject. Do many languages have unnecessary embellishments and curvatures or not and if so does this negatively affect character? Or does it beautify the character? Or neither, is it just without consequence on the character of the speaker?

After 20 minutes of also walking, or doing anything, I feel like I’ve run a marathon.. which also means that I’ll never be able to run a marathon. They’re pointless things anyway.

Can you understand that without a context?
