I'll focus on BJJ for now but I want to have a well rounded skill set
Sounds good, a stand up style would compliment BJJ, another ground work one could confuse you to start with.
A recent post by the OP shows that he's in Asia, not the US or Europe and English is very unlikely to be his first language. We may have to blame American television programmes for the slang lol.
My first language is Armenian, but I'd have to say I'm pretty fluent seeing as how I know more words than people on this board lol
Oooooo is that a challenge lol, I definitely know more words than you, and now everyone here is groaning because they know I'm right and I know the proper meanings of those words. they hate it when I tell them the meaning is different.
It's good to be able to speak more than one language though, research has found it lessens your chances of getting dementia.
Yet you used an “lol” and an emoji here. Odd.
I’m just having a little fun with you here, nothing more
Doth thee very much bethink thee wilt winneth at a bout of English? I think not haha, I do challenge you. I'm actually pretty well read lol
According to one very dirty dog, Per the Terms of Service you agreed to when you created your account, English is the only acceptable language here.
Just having fun with someone who claims to speak my language, that’s all. Nothing wrong with a hello in our alleged language, right?
I’m starting to like you. If you’re actually hye anyway.
No if I use it, it's correct! Actually I was told that using lol means I'm old, like using FB.
Yeah I don't appreciate what you said, khoz
Sorry, it's ' thou' which is singular, 'thee' is plural ( I live in a part of the UK where 'thee' and 'thou' are still used.)
I love that you are well read, everyone should be! Words are wonderful things.

What you are experiencing now is the inevitable thread drift that happens on here. We are an interesting lot.
I don’t mean it in a mean spirited way. Just a fun way. I was going to put esheg on my license plate, and it would’ve worked. So would every Armenian, Arabic, and Turkish swear word that’s 8 letters or less I know. I decided to not pay the extra money and have the old ladies at church complaining constantly.
For the non-Armenians, esheg means jackass. One of the most common friendly jabs in my circles.
Lol I know, if we had a problem we would have to take it outside
Didn't Shakespeare use thee to refer to one person tho? Sick how it's still spoken, I thought it was only like, Elizabethan era
Thee would be used to address someone very formally or in a demeaning way if you do know them.
Thee and thou are older than the Elizabethan time, they actually started dying out in the 1600s.
The pronunciation of “thou” was different in different parts of Yorkshire. In [what is now] West and South Yorkshire, it is often spelled “tha” in dialect writing. In the more rural remainder of Yorkshire where I am in the North Riding, it is often spelled as “thoo”. In phonetic terms: West and South Yorkshire ða other parts ðuː
“Thee” and “thy” often sounded the same when unstressed as ðɪ. However, they could be distinguished when stressed as ðiː and ðaɪ (or ðaː in some bits of Yorkshire).
Listen here to the North Riding dialect. Listen - Yorkshire Dialect Society
Thoo cannot be serious!
Na then, appen it be nuthin to mither abaht, It sempt reight good.
I really enjoyed the audio clips. Would it be correct to say the East and West dialects are similar and North is more 'plain'? I could definitely understand the North Riding audio clips easier but can't decide if it was the dialect or Mr. Bill Cowley's smooth voice. Regardless, when any of the voices went into a 'fast forward' riff I could not keep up.
Very informative, Thanks.123
