Page F30 poll results: What will happen to Catalonia, and which languages do you enjoy hearing sung?

Tuesday, August 04, 2015

Time to get rid of the two polls that are still up. This first one was about the future of Catalonia, and here it is sorted by popularity:

1) Will remain in Spain, will increase autonomy 22 (36%)
2) Will remain in Spain, little to no change 15 (25%)
3) Will separate from Spain, accompanied by violent events 11 (18%)
4) Will peacefully separate from Spain 8 (13%)
5) Will remain in Spain, will lose some / all autonomy 4 (6%)

Votes so far: 60
Poll closed

My vote was #1.



And the second one was about which languages sound best in dubbed music - Disney, that sort of thing. The dubbed part is important because I think there are some languages that sound nice when sung in music originally composed in the language, but always end up sounding awkward when sung in a translated version of an English song. Italian and Japanese are two that come to mind as awkward languages, while the vowel-swallowing French and Portuguese tend to incorporate them more naturally.

And now to the poll:
