    I didn't actually look at the contents, took a quick glance. I'm going to take my guess now: United Kingdom...

    Where is the original “Zealand”?

    Denmark


    The Netherlands


    The United Kingdom

    The Netherlands. It's a province in the south-west of the Netherlands, at the Dutch coast. In the Dutch language, it is spelled "Zeeland" ─ the double "ee" is pronounced similarly to the "ea" in the English word "near", and the "a" is pronounced similar to the "a" in "Español" ─ and "zee" is the Dutch word for "sea". De Noordzee is the North Sea.

    They have a very strange pronunciation and dialect, which bears a lot of similarities ─ but is not identical ─ to West Flemish, itself also the odd one out among Flemish dialects.

    yeah, I forgot about the importance of 'Z'. Poor guess, on my part...I knew it didn't feel right though...I am actually a very poor guesser...i gotta know or I simply don't know...

    Saturns sweat although often misunderstood is actually quite a valuable substance.
    It keeps time flowing in the proper direction and sets the boundaries without which this experience would be meaningless
    Have a great day today

    Daar moet je natuurlijk Nederlands voor begrijpen ─ zowel de taal als de cultuur-eigen uitdrukkingen. Maar je doet me er wel mee lachen. Schitterend!

    (That one requires a proper understanding of Dutch ─ both the language and the cultural idioms. But you're making me laugh. Brilliant! )

    Unfortunately I honestly can say that I don't remember much of my French lessons. I mostly just learned the pronunciation.

    I watched this video about Afrikaans. Here's one about Finnish.
    The Finnish language is complex and difficult for me to comprehend, Wind. I like the idea that there is no grammatical difference in the gender issue, hence there is no problems with gender in Finland. Would you say this is so from your own experience?

    Well, maybe. I never understood the gender pronoun-nonsense in US specifically.

    When we talk about a person here we say "hän" which is indeed genderless or we can even say "se" meaning it.

    Are you sure that you were actually born? I mean, is it not possible that you came out of an eggysample instead?
