All right now...you guys are just poking at me, now, aren't you...all the German
speaking here. Luckily Google translate works well enough for one to understand
most of what is being said. :D

And sorry - don't mean to be offensive. To me, as an ignorant American, there are
just some languages that I think of for "scary" speaking. German happens to be one of
them. Russian, too. Basically, a language that is kind of throaty and rough-sounding.
Latin, when used in a deep gravely voice, is another, as if a dark wizard is casting a
horrible spell over the people.

I'll give you throaty for both, Russian in consonants, German all in all.
German is based on clear speaking, as in make sure one sound is not connected to the one before, if that makes sense.
German sounds throatier than Russian.

But rough... Russian is not rough to my ears. It flows nicely.
Nothing's sexier than Russian spoken by a young hot woman with a nice voice.

German is not sexy. Period. That as a sidenote.

No, nein, nyet.

Sexy is a redheaded woman speaking Gaelic.

And going back to stereotyping, Gaelic is my go to for what I
think of for elves and druids.

Yes it is, indeed.
And listen to Annet Mahendru in The Americans. Sexiest thing I've ever heard.

It also depends on the local dialect. I was shocked to hear that french, spoken by an angry south french mother to her annoying child, can be quite throaty. Like vomiting the language, really. :D


On the other hand, in the radio they always emphasize the softness in both voice and rhythm while speaking.

I feel a very little bit offended. :|

Well of course the citizens of the demon language country thinks it's just normal :lol: |_P

But actually I find German to be a beautiful language when spoken normally. Sadly I think many people have only heard the "shouting gestapo" version :cry:
Then again, I'm Danish... Our language is notoriously ugly and hard. German at least is incredibly easy to learn.

Just an observation... my two cents.

ANY language can be sexy if spoken by someone you would be attracted to in an attractive voice.
Any language can be scary if spoken in a scary voice.

Just felt like chiming in.

This is of course true, but some languages just sound sexier or scarier in general than others. Then again dialect has also a big effect on the matter.

Not an ugly language, but easily worst written language. Sorry TMU.
