I would like to write a novel in a European language other than English and have been trying to look at the pros and cons of each language - but this information is hard to come by. I read on a blog post:
"when it comes to written Romance languages, French and Italian are the uncontested champions of elegance in structuring of thoughts, vivacity of expression and use of nuances, which you can sometimes almost hear when you read them!!!!"
and I was just wondering if this was true and generally agreed to. I'm thinking of either writing in French or Spanish, so any input into the ability of each language to get across one's thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I read also that French is good for precision. Spanish, I don't know what...
I'm open to pretty much all languages though. I just hate that the English language has been so bastardized so I want to choose a new one.
