Sustatun ikusi dut hizkuntza zailenen sailkapena, munduko zailena, urrezko domina, geure 😉
Eta Google itzultzaileak, kasualitatez berretsi egin dit:
Aurten bertan, hamaikagarren aldiz, nire ikasle batzuk esan/galdetu didate zergatik, zer dela eta, gure hizkuntza munduko zaharrena…
Nik galdera horren aurrean txapa bat botatzeko arriskuan ikusten dudanez ene burua, hizkuntzen trataera bateraturako beste ekarpen bat egingo dut hemen…

Q5. Is Basque the oldest language in Europe?
A5. The question is meaningless. Except for creoles, which arise from pidgins and are a special case, all languages are equally “old”, in that all descend in an unbroken line from the earliest human speech. What we can say about Basque is that its ancestor was spoken in western Europe before (possibly long before) the ancestors of all the other modern western European languages arrived there. That is, Spanish, French, English, Irish, and all the others are descended from languages which were introduced into western Europe (from farther east) at a time when the ancestor of Basque was already there.
Q8. Is Basque exceedingly difficult to learn?
A8. Not at all. Today thousands of people speak Basque as a second language; among these are native speakers of Spanish, French, English, Dutch, German, Japanese, and other languages. In fact, Basque is a rather easy language to pick up, while mastering it is no more difficult than mastering any other language. The pronunciation is easy, the spelling is regular, there is no grammatical gender, there are no noun-classes or verb-classes, and there are no irregular nouns and hardly any irregular verbs.
