Sanskrit Anon 09/02/2022 (Fri) 20:26:27 ID:8c6d27 No. 321
Anyone here legitimately know Sanskrit? Native English speaker, here, and Sanskrit seems basically impossible. Hindi is already harder for me than Latin. pic unrelated, I just want a goldfish
>>321 I do—I can read mostly fluently, though not speak fluently. I recommend starting out with learnsanskrit.org
>>322 Are you Indian? Did you learn in school, parents or self taught?
>>323 Indian-American. I'm self-taught (though my family has a lot of Sanskrit heritage and my grandfather can understand a lot of it). As I child I learned through the website I linked above, and later on I read Whitney's "Sanskrit Grammar" and MacDonell's "Vedic Grammar", which (especially the first one) provide a concise but thorough understanding of the language. Reading Sanskrit is good for vocabulary, but IMO writing Sanskrit (e.g. composing your own poems) is much more effective for getting a grasp of the language as a whole.
>>324 Thanks anon.
>>321 nobody in India knows and nobody cares so why do you care ?
>>324 >Indian-American *American ftfy
>>321 Sanskrit is easy once you get hang of the devanagri script and sentence structures of Hindi. The vocab is almost entirely different though.
>>326 Kys, sanskrit is not for chamars like you
>>326 I'm trying to learn as many classical languages as possible and I consider ancient India very highly. I am also learning because it is part of my cultural background.
>>330 You hapa?
>>331 Yes.
>>330 Sanskrit is a larp language used by Brahmins to recite irrelevant ooga booga prayers, no one actually knows how to converse in it, those who say they do are lying

>>326 only lower castes and mlecchas say this
>>321 Hindi is actually much easier than Latin. German is probably harder than Hindi tbh
>>321 Those who know Sanskrit here are native Indian language speakers ,its not hard if you know any Indian language . I can't say the same for english If you are already into Hindi and not urdu ,going to Sanskrit would be much easier .In west Harvard and Standford like big university teach Urdu calling it Hindi to erase the cultural roots. Probably that's why you find it harder then Latin when its supposed to be easier
