Belarusian is the most sexual language in Europe

Based on site tut.by.


Language - is practice. This practice helps us to create the character, beliefs. But any language practice based on phonetics, on the sounds . Many scholars argue that the vowels and consonants are emotional . If a person hears the words of a foreign language, he will carry through his perception of harmony sounds of the word.I found a very interesting study, and I want to introduce you to its results.


You will see a map below. It shows what are the most common vowel sounds in European languages. Red color marks countries with the sound [a], gray - with sound [i], yellow - with sound [e]. As you can see, Belarus is lighted in red.

Researchers believe that people find the sound and energetic, passionate, full of vitality, sexual. On the following map you can see how distributed three most frequent sounds in different European countries.

Look at Russia. First map the country was gray, but in Russian language is also common [a], so Russia turned pink. Look at Germany. It is light yellow, because the sounds mingled. And look at Belarus. My country is the most striking, because the Belarusian language is unique. [a] dominates in the Belarusian language . It sounds in 37 % of the words. This domination of sound [a] is found only in Belarus.

Sound [a] in our language remarkably expanded. This sound is associated with love, sex, blood, passion, romance.
Below you can see how scientists distributed phonetic features of  languages.

    1. Maybe... It's easy enough for me (my grandma was Polish, and my mum know your language very well).

    2. For Slavic people (Belarussians, Russians, Serbs, Czech...) it isn't very difficult, but English people or American don't understand why we have so complicated grammar and vocabulary :)
