I thought about Hungarian the first time when I heard this song! I didn't understand a word, but because my heart melt, I thought the meaning of these words must be really good, and I was right! I've read it's a rare Hungarian dialect, but really I'm not sure about it. Here's the song and part of the lyrics:
"For I picked once, but let it slip away, I picked once and let is slip away.
I would pick again if I found a good one, a good and nice one, if I found my past love.
What wouldn't I do for my past love? I’d spoon the water from the sea,
I’d pick the pearls from down beneath to bind a pearl wreath my past love, for thee."
There are rumours that you are practising mounted archery again (as a sport, or so you claim).
I think people are simply afraid you may be falling back into old habits as a horse people. They want to be able to negotiate, say about the bribe for saving their city.
"this language is freakingly hard to learn"............that's the reason why I'm interested in it!! :D
I like grammatically complex languages, because they're quite challenging compared to simpler languages, such as English, French or something like that, and we also should notice how special Finnish, Hungarian, Saami and Estonian are in the whole Europe (and of course basque, although which is not relative to Hungarian), they're non Indo-European languages and own different grammars and vocabularies...:P
In my country people say Hungarian is the demon's language. It's quite difficult to learn (read really really really difficult), so at least here I wouldn't say there are many people learning Hungarian, only in some specific cases. Particularly saying, I would learn it only if Liszt Ferencz were alive to talk to me, otherwise there's no reason for that :)
