Sweet Talk Ignore the video, unless you hate German. (Mark Twain wrote a much funnier parody.)

It does not appear that Sweet Talk much agreed with your choices. Then again, who agrees with anyone over what is beautiful or not? In "A Fish Called Wanda," Jamie Lee Curtis' character loved Russian. My father, who taught German, thought Monongahela the most beautiful word. The people of almost any language, except perhaps English, will generally say their language is the best. It's all subjective.

I wonder how Mark Twain would have gotten along with Finnish, which I gather has 16 cases.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

16 cases? Samsonite could buy it!

Spanish as in Castille or Cuba is the most beautiful.
