Design by Introspection - Andrei Alexandrescu | DConf2017
Abstract: Over the years, a few programming paradigms have been successful enough to enter the casual vocabulary of software engineers: procedural, imperative, object-oriented, functional, generic, declarative. There's a B-list, too, that includes paradigms such as logic, constraint-oriented, and symbolic. The point is, there aren't very many of them altogether. Easy to imagine, then, the immensely humbling pressure one must feel when stumbling upon a way to think about writing code that is at the same time explosively productive and firmly removed from any of the paradigms considered canon. This talk shares early experience with Design by Introspection, a proposed programming paradigm that has enough demonstrable results to be worth sharing. The tenets of Design by Introspection are: The rule of optionality: Component primitives are almost entirely opt-in. A given component is required to implement only a modicum of primitives, and all others are optional. The component is free to implement any subset of the optional primitives. The rule of introspection: A component user employs introspection on the component to implement its own functionality using the primitives offered by the component. The rule of elastic composition: A component obtained by composing several other components offers capabilities in proportion with the capabilities offered by its individual components. These rules, and how to use them to build powerful software, are the topic of this talk.

He is also the coauthor (with Herb Sutter) of C++ Coding Standards and the author of The D Programming Language book. With Walter Bright, Andrei co-designed many important features of D and authored a large part of D's standard library. His research on Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing completes a broad spectrum of expertise. Andrei holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Washington and a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from University "Politehnica" Bucharest. He works with the D Language Foundation.

Speak Malay Like a Local - Lesson 30 : Banana Fritters & Coconut Water
Short video about one the foods I'm most passionate about - banana fritters (or in Malay, pisang goreng)! It was towards the end of my Penang trip and my family and I thought it'd be nice to have a lazy day filled with a leisurely trip to a pisang goreng stall and then sitting around sipping ice cold coconut water. Not that many new words to learn in this lesson, but I hope you will enjoy seeing all the normal, wonderful, everyday Malaysian things through the eyes of a common Malaysian girl!

Japanology Plus - Lighthouses [1080p]
Japan is an island country surrounded on all sides by the sea. It's also one of the world's largest economies, with goods flowing in and out of the country by ship. That means its coasts are lined with lighthouses, which play an essential role in guiding those ships to port. Or used to, to be more precise. On this edition of Japanology Plus, we shed light on both the history of Japan's lighthouses and the way technology is changing their function in the 21st century. For the landlubbers out there, let's start with the basics: just what are lighthouses? Simply put, they are structures that house beacon lights and guide ships by letting them know their position relative to the coast. They have existed in some form since ancient times, but the modern lighthouses we know now began to be constructed around 1700. The first lighthouse fully exposed to the open sea, a wooden tower on the Eddystone Rocks in Plymouth, England, was completed in 1699, only to be swept away by a storm four years later. Japan's first lighthouse was built in 1868, exactly 150 years ago as of 2018 (more on that in a bit!). As we learn on the program, Japan's coastline is home to roughly 3,000 lighthouses. Japan's coastline is roughly 30,000 km, meaning about one lighthouse per 10 km! In comparison, the coastline of the United States is roughly 150,000 km, and it is estimated the country currently has about 700 lighthouses. Even keeping in mind the caveats that coastline calculation can be fuzzy and that the definition of what exactly a lighthouse is might vary, it's still clear Japan's coast has a lot of light. Of the country's 3,000 or so lighthouses, Kannon Saki Lighthouse, located at the mouth of Tokyo Bay, is of special significance. (It should be noted that the name of the lighthouse is rendered differently from the name of the cape where it is situated: Kannonzaki.) The current building on the site was built in 1925, but the original Kannon Saki was Japan's first lighthouse. Construction began in 1868, as stipulated by a treaty signed ten years prior that established Japan's trade with the West after centuries of isolation. Built with help from Western civil engineers, the original structure was destroyed by an earthquake in 1922. Peter Barakan visits Kannon Saki with expert guest Mayuu Fudo. To say Fudo is a serious lighthouse enthusiast would be putting it, well, lightly. This lighthouse lover, who got married at the site of one of these beacons, edits a free magazine about them. Its title, Todai Dodai?, is notable for Japanese learners (or anyone who's a fan of a good old pun). In Japanese, "todai" is lighthouse(s), and "do dai" is a colloquial expression meaning "Whaddya think?" Put them together and you've got the name of the magazine and a clever gag. According to our punny expert guest, the greatness of Japanese lighthouses lies in their austerity. While lighthouses in other countries can be flashy, with playful designs and colors, Japanese ones place functionality over style. For true connoisseurs, posits Fudo, this stripped-down, functional aesthetic offers its own appeal. But while Japanese lighthouses may be the workhorses of the lighthouse world, they're finding work hard to come by. That's because ships these days rely more on technologies like GPS and radar than the visual aid of a lighthouse to guide their paths. Though not all lighthouses have been rendered obsolete yet, some are being torn down. In this technological era, what is a lighthouse fan to do? During the program, we shine a light on some of the activities Fudo and others are involved in to help preserve these historical structures. That includes, in addition to Fudo's free magazine, short films aimed at giving lighthouses a romantic image. Other projects include a website created by the Japan Coast Guard that offers 360-degree VR tours of lighthouses around Japan. This site allows those unable to make the trip to lighthouses to tour them virtually, as well as preserves them digitally in the event they may one day be torn down. As GPS and other technologies keep improving, the original function of lighthouses will eventually be rendered completely obsolete—but if lighthouse lovers in Japan and elsewhere have anything to do with it, they'll live on as important cultural and historical beacons for a long time to come. https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/tv/japanologyplus/program-20180501.html
Dog breed - Video Learning - WizScience.com
"Dog breeds" are groups of closely related and visibly similar domestic dogs, having characteristic traits that are selected and maintained by humans, bred from a known foundation stock. The term "dog breed" is also used to refer to "natural breeds" or landraces, which arose through time in response to a particular environment that included humans, with little or no selective breeding by humans. Such breeds are undocumented, and are identified by their appearance and often by a style of working. Dog breeds are not scientifically defined biological classifications, but rather are groupings defined by clubs of hobbyists called breed clubs. A dog breed is represented by a sufficient number of individuals to stably transfer its specific characteristics over generations. Dogs of same breed have similar characteristics of appearance and behavior, primarily because they come from a select set of ancestors who had the same characteristics. Dogs of a specific breed breed true, produce young that are very similar to their parents. An individual dog is identified as a member of a breed through proof of ancestry, using genetic analysis or written records of ancestry. Without such proof, identification of a specific breed is not reliable. Such records, called stud books, may be maintained by individuals, clubs, or other organizations. In biology, subspecies, race and breed are equivalent terms. Breed is usually applied to domestic animals; species and subspecies, to wild animals and to plants; and race, to humans. Colloquial use of the term "dog breed", however, does not conform to scientific standards of taxonomic classification. Breeds do not meet the criteria for subspecies since they are all one species: "Canis lupus familiaris". Interbreeding group of individuals who pass on characteristic traits and would likely merge back into a single homogenous group if external barriers were removed, like selective breeding. The recognition of distinct dog breeds is not maintained by a scientific organization; they are maintained by a number of independent kennel clubs that need not apply to scientific standards and are often inconsistent. For instance, the Belgian Shepherd Dog is separated into four distinct breeds by some clubs, but not in others. Further, some groups of dogs which clearly share a persistent set of characteristics and documented descent from a known foundation stock may still not be recognized by some clubs as breeds. For instance, the feist is a hunting dog raised in the Southern United States for hunting small game. Feists have a consistent set of characteristics that reliably differentiate them from other dog types and breeds. However, the United Kennel Club recognizes one breed of feist, the Treeing Feist, while the American Kennel Club does not recognize any feist breed.

√ Stereotypes and Regional Language Part 2  | English
https://www.iitutor.com • Every region has its own way of speaking. • Composers emphasise the way a character speaks to reveal details. • You can learn the character’s nationality, if they are rural or from a city, level of education , personality traits all from their patterns of speech. • Vernacular: language specific to a region. • Examples:  ‘chuck a u-ie’- to do a u-turn.  ‘fair dinkum’- genuine  ‘knackered’- exhausted/tired. • May be used as a technique when discussing language in Experience Through Language. • Idioms are another common use of language that can be examples of vernacular. • Phrases that have a meaning which has nothing to do with the words in the phrase. • You can only understand them by hearing them before. • e.g. “to kick the bucket” means to die. • e.g. an Australian example such as “a kangaroo loose in the top paddock” means you are crazy or mentally unwell. • Australian literature covers every topic, style and form imaginable. • Certain Australian classics created and spread an Australian national identity. • Examples  My Brilliant Career: Miles Franklin  The Magic Pudding: Norman Lindsay  Cuddlepot and Snugglepie: May Gibbs. The Ripping Yarn • First Australian genre. • Telling tales of daring feats in a new unknown place. • Stories of natural disasters, fights and exploration. • Heroes against snakes, droughts, wild horses, convicts, and clashes with Aborigines. • Bush poetry has been popular in Australia since the 1800. • Usually has a strong working class voice: focus on vernacular and idioms. • Focus on outdoor work, such as droving, mining or being a travelling swagman. • Made famous by Banjo Patterson and Henry Lawson. Example: A Bush Christening, by Banjo Patterson • Outer Barcoo – country living, setting is the Australian bush. • Scanty – colloquialism for ‘few’ → there aren’t many religious people in this bush town. • Steady rhythm already forming. “On a road never cross’d ‘cept by folk that are lost One Michael Magee had a shanty.” • Cross’d and ‘cept → shortened versions of the words, colloquial and informal tone. • Folk → slang for the people in this area. • Shanty → a small house in the country.

tired: a perspective || free audio
PLEASE CREDIT IF USED Original clips and speech by myself Background music: ES Balm (Scaled Down Version) - Peter Sandberg This video contains clips of my trip to York, UK earlier this year. I started working on a piece of writing, in more of a colloquial style and realised I could use it as an voice over with the clips. This is the first time I've done something like this, but I hope you enjoy it. Transcript: Stay with me a minute okay? I know what I mean, but let me just see if you can too. It’s not the type of tired which is “I’m tired with life right now” you know? Or maybe it is, but it’s not just that. It’s the type of tired which comes back around when you’ve seen that things need to change in order to ensure your own survival. So you take every ounce of your life and redirect the energy which is being ripped away from your heart to pushing your existence up a hill. It’s the type of tired which you find after you find your freedom. But you know, finding freedom doesn’t just happen once, this won’t be the only time you have to do it. And you know, I think we’re all guilty of it. We become complacent and we fall into line, thinking we know ourselves and therefore we accept what we’re given. And then it hits us like a ton of bricks that we’re actually trapped. Again. And again. And, you know it just keeps going. But until that moment comes again, you’re here. So yeah, you acknowledge that now you can be free. And it’s the most UGH, you know, it’s the best feeling. For a moment. Like that feeling doesn’t last. Because with freedom comes “okay so what do I do now?” You know? Because you’ve all these chances and all these opportunities, so you’re like “what the hell can I do with this? I’ve got to find purpose, I’ve got to find a place to belong.” All this stuff that we think we don’t have enough time to find. And that becomes overwhelming and you believe you’re not gonna find all that makes you a functional human being, whatever the hell that means, and you shut down and seclude yourself. You don’t want to waste all that time finding stuff for it to be wrong you know, you’re protecting yourself, you don’t want to get even more hurt because you’re afraid of how much of you that feeling will rob you of. Then, just like that, it happens. There’s moments, there’s people, there’s chances and you think “this could be it.” Like, “this is mine” and you don’t want to lose it. And we’re told we’re gonna regret the chances we don’t take, so you take them all, every single one. You’re afraid of missing out, you’re afraid that if you don’t take it you’re not gonna be using that freedom as much as you should. That’s so damn exhausting. SO exhausting, like you wouldn’t believe. But for that moment of “this is what I’m meant to be” you’re willing to do it all. And then, you’ve done as much as you can, and suddenly you’re comfortable. And that fear of missing out isn’t there because you’ve made your spot where you want it right? And THAT is what this tired is. It’s what your anxiety teased you about and made you lose sleep over, that you were going to miss out on life. So now you’re allowed to laugh at your anxiety, because you have done EVERYTHING you possibly can. You’re not gonna lose this, you’re not gonna lose the life you made for yourself. You’re tired, and you CAN afford to rest, because you know when you’re rested you can just go back into that life, but for now you can just rest.

Building Tomorrow, Ep. 5: The Right to Print Arms?
Mark McDaniel from Reason Magazine joins us to discuss homemade gun technology in response to a recent court case and settlement involving gun ownership activist, Cody Wilson, and his group, Defense Distributed, who were the minds behind the "Wiki Weapon Project". Cody Wilson and his group went unnoticed until they actually tried to build a weapon, specifically named the "Liberator". However, when the printer company, Stratasys, heard of this plan they took his printer and reported Wilson's intentions to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). The press got wind of this dispute when Wilson posted a viral video of Stratasys taking the printer away. Later on, the State Department got involved when Wilson posted the blueprints of how to print the "Liberator". What kind of guns can be printed? What are the rules for making a traditional weapon at home? Why should we care if people can have 3D-printed guns so easily? How far away are we, technologically speaking, from creating legit firearms in our homes? Subscribe through iTunes: https://apple.co/2KRzrxf Building Tomorrow RSS feed: https://bit.ly/2upSZPh

In linguistics, diglossia (/daɪˈɡlɒsiə/; Greek: διγλωσσία less than δι- prefix denoting two, from δίς, twice + γλῶσσα, language + -ία, suffix denoting state or attribute, "speaking two languages") refers to a situation in which two dialects or usually closely related languages are used by a single language community. In addition to the community's everyday or vernacular language variety (labelled "L" or "low" variety), a second, highly codified variety (labelled "H" or "high") is used in certain situations such as literature, formal education, or other specific settings, but not used for ordinary conversation. The high variety may be an older stage of the same language (e.g. Latin in the early Middle Ages), or a distinct yet closely related present day dialect (e.g. Norwegian with Bokmål and Nynorsk, or Chinese with Mandarin as the official, literary standard and colloquial topolects/dialects used in everyday communication). Other examples include literary Katharevousa versus spoken Demotic Greek, Indonesian, with its Baku and Gaul forms, and the Dravidian language Tamil of southern India and Telugu with their respective high and low registers.

Drum kit
A drum kit, drum set or trap set is a collection of drums and other percussion instruments set up to be played/struck by a single player. The traditional drum kit consists of a mix of drums (classified as classically as membranophones, Hornbostel-Sachs high-level classification 2) and idiophones (Hornbostel-Sachs high-level classification 1, most significantly cymbals but also including the woodblock and cowbell for example). More recently kits have also included electronic instruments (Hornbostel-Sachs classification 53), with both hybrid and entirely electronic kits now in common use.

Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, and astringent flavour that many people enjoy. Tea originated in China as a medicinal drink. It was first introduced to Portuguese priests and merchants in China during the 16th century. Drinking tea became popular in Britain during the 17th century. The British introduced it to India, in order to compete with the Chinese monopoly on the product. This video is targeted to blind users.

Automotive lighting
The lighting system of a motor vehicle consists of lighting and signalling devices mounted or integrated to various parts of a motor vehicle. These may include the front, sides, rear and, in some cases, the top of the vehicle. The purpose of this system is to provide illumination for the driver. This enables safe vehicle operation after dark and increases the conspicuity of the vehicle. It also informs of the vehicle's presence, position, size, direction of travel, and the driver's intentions regarding direction and speed of travel. This video is targeted to blind users.

Seal (East Asia)
A seal, in an East Asian context, is a general name for printing stamps and impressions thereof which are used in lieu of signatures in personal documents, office paperwork, contracts, art, or any item requiring acknowledgement or authorship. China, Japan, Taiwan, and Korea currently use a mixture of seals and hand signatures, and increasingly, electronic signatures. It is used to a lesser extent in Vietnam by authorised organisations and businesses, and also traditional Vietnamese artists. It was more common in Vietnam prior to French rule, when thereafter the practice of signature became a commonality, although western-like signatures are usually seen as having less authority in a company situation. Chinese seals are typically made of stone, sometimes of metals, wood, bamboo, plastic, or ivory, and are typically used with red ink or cinnabar paste. The word 印 specifically refers to the imprint created by the seal, as well as appearing in combination with other ideographs in words related to any printing, as in the word "印刷", "printing", pronounced "yìnshuā" in Mandarin, "insatsu" in Japanese. The colloquial name chop, when referring to these kinds of seals, was adapted from the Hindi word chapa and from the Malay word cap meaning stamp or rubber stamps.

Disneyland Park, originally Disneyland, is the first of two theme parks built at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, opened on July 17, 1955. It is the only theme park designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney. It was originally the only attraction on the property; its name was changed to Disneyland Park to distinguish it from the expanding complex in the 1990s. Walt Disney came up with the concept of Disneyland after visiting various amusement parks with his daughters in the 1930s and 1940s. He initially envisioned building a tourist attraction adjacent to his studios in Burbank to entertain fans who wished to visit; however, he soon realized that the proposed site was too small. After hiring a consultant to help him determine an appropriate site for his project, Walt bought a 160-acre (65 ha) site near Anaheim in 1953. Construction began in 1954 and the park was unveiled during a special televised press event on the ABC Television Network on July 17, 1955. This video is targeted to blind users.

Fear Itself (comics)
"Fear Itself" is a 2011 crossover comic book storyline published by Marvel Comics, consisting of a seven-issue, eponymous miniseries written by Matt Fraction and illustrated by Stuart Immonen, Wade Von Grawbadger, and Laura Martin, a prologue book by writer Ed Brubaker and artist Scot Eaton, and numerous tie-in books, including most of the X-Men family of books. "Fear Itself" was first announced by then-Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada, Executive Editor Tom Brevoort and X-Men group editor Axel Alonso at a press conference held at Midtown Comics Times Square on December 21, 2010. It is the first company-wide crossover event since 2008's "Secret Invasion". The story, whose title is a reference to a famous quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt, depicts the various superheroes of the Marvel Universe contending with the Serpent, an Asgardian fear deity who causes global panic on Earth, and who seeks to reclaim the throne of Asgard he contends was usurped by his brother, Odin, father to Thor, when the latter vanquished him ages ago. Within the comics, the characters refer to this conflict as The Serpent's War. Although it is a company-wide crossover, it emphasizes Captain America and Thor, as with past crossovers of the late 2000s. This video is targeted to blind users.

Distant Reading and the Islamic Archive - Session 2
The third annual Digital Islamic Humanities symposium organized by Elias Muhanna, Manning Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature, and Middle East Studies. Each year, the number of digitized books, inscriptions, images, documents, and other artifacts from the Islamic world continues to grow. As this archive expands, so too does the repertoire of digital tools for navigating and interpreting its diffuse and varied contents. Drawing upon such tools as topic modeling, context-based search, social network maps, and text reuse algorithms, the study of large-scale archives and textual corpora is undergoing significant and exciting developments. Session 2 participants include: Alexander Magidow (Univ. of Rhode Island) & Yonatan Belinkov (MIT), “Digital Philology and the History of Written Arabic” Elias Muhanna (Brown University), “Modeling Mannerism in Classical Arabic Poetry” More Information at islamichumanities.org.
English grammar
English grammar is the body of rules that describe the structure of expressions in the English language. This includes the structure of words, phrases, clauses and sentences. There are historical, social, and regional variations of English. Divergences from the grammar described here occur in some dialects of English. This article describes a generalized present-day Standard English, the form of speech found in types of public discourse including broadcasting, education, entertainment, government, and news reporting, including both formal and informal speech. There are certain differences in grammar between the standard forms of British English, American English and Australian English, although these are inconspicuous compared with the lexical and pronunciation differences.

Red Dwarf
Red Dwarf is a British comedy franchise which primarily comprises ten series (including a ninth mini-series named Back To Earth) of a television science fiction sitcom that aired on BBC Two between 1988 and 1993 and from 1997 to 1999, and on Dave in 2009 and 2012, gaining a cult following. The series was created by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor. In addition to the television episodes, there are four novels, two pilot episodes for an American version of the show, a radio version produced for BBC Radio 7, tie-in books, magazines and other merchandise. Despite the pastiche of science fiction used as a backdrop, Red Dwarf is primarily a character-driven comedy, with off-the-wall, often scatological science fiction elements used as complementary plot devices. In the early episodes, a recurring source of comedy was the "Odd Couple"-style relationship between the two central characters of the show, who have an intense dislike for each other and are trapped together deep in space. The main characters are Dave Lister, the last known human alive, and Arnold Rimmer, a hologram of Lister's dead bunkmate. The other regular characters are Cat, a lifeform which evolved from the descendants of Lister's pregnant pet cat Frankenstein; Holly, Red Dwarf's computer; Kryten, a service mechanoid; and, as of Series VII to Back to Earth, Kristine Kochanski, an alternative-reality version of Lister's long-lost love.

Ladakh | Wikipedia audio article
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Ladakh Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ In case you don't find one that you were looking for, put a comment. This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= Ladakh ("land of high passes") is a region in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir that currently extends from the Siachen Glacier in the Karakoram range to the main Great Himalayas to the south, inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and Tibetan descent. It is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Jammu and Kashmir and its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet. Ladakh is renowned for its remote mountain beauty and culture. Historically, the region included the Baltistan (Baltiyul) valleys (now mostly in Pakistan), the entire upper Indus Valley, the remote Zanskar, Lahaul and Spiti to the south, much of Ngari including the Rudok region and Guge in the east, Aksai Chin in the northeast (extending to the Kun Lun Mountains), and the Nubra Valley to the north over Khardong La in the Ladakh Range. Contemporary Ladakh borders Tibet to the east, the Lahaul and Spiti regions to the south, the Vale of Kashmir, Jammu and Baltiyul regions to the west, and the southwest corner of Xinjiang across the Karakoram Pass in the far north. Aksai Chin is one of the disputed border areas between China and India. It is administered by China as part of Hotan County but is also claimed by India as a part of the Ladakh region of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. In 1962, China and India fought a brief war over Aksai Chin and Arunachal Pradesh, but in 1993 and 1996 the two countries signed agreements to respect the Line of Actual Control.In the past Ladakh gained importance from its strategic location at the crossroads of important trade routes, but since the Chinese authorities closed the borders with Tibet and Central Asia in the 1960s, international trade has dwindled except for tourism. Since 1974, the Government of India has successfully encouraged tourism in Ladakh. Since Ladakh is a part of strategically important Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian military maintains a strong presence in the region. The largest town in Ladakh is Leh, followed by Kargil. Almost half of Ladakhis are Shia Muslims and the rest are mostly Tibetan Buddhists. Some Ladakhi activists have in recent times called for Ladakh to be constituted as a union territory because of perceived unfair treatment by Kashmir and Ladakh's cultural differences with predominantly Muslim Kashmir.

German language | Wikipedia audio article
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: German language Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading.

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= German (Deutsch [dɔʏtʃ] ( listen)) is a West Germanic language that is mainly spoken in Central Europe. It is the most widely spoken and official or co-official language in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, South Tyrol (Italy), the German-speaking Community of Belgium, and Liechtenstein. It is also one of the three official languages of Luxembourg. The languages which are most similar to German are the other members of the West Germanic language branch: Afrikaans, Dutch, English, the Frisian languages, Low German/Low Saxon, Luxembourgish, and Yiddish. There are also strong similarities in vocabulary with Danish, Norwegian and Swedish, although those belong to the North Germanic group. German is the second most widely spoken Germanic language, after English. One of the major languages of the world, German is the first language of almost 100 million people worldwide and the most widely spoken native language in the European Union. Together with French, German is the second most commonly spoken foreign language in the EU after English, making it the second biggest language in the EU in terms of overall speakers. German is also the second most widely taught foreign language in the EU after English at primary school level (but third after English and French at lower secondary level), the fourth most widely taught non-English language in the US (after Spanish, French and American Sign Language), and the second most commonly used scientific language as well as the second most widely used language on websites after English. The German-speaking countries are ranked fifth in terms of annual publication of new books, with one tenth of all books (including e-books) in the world being published in the German language. In the United Kingdom, German and French are the most-sought after foreign languages for businesses (with 49% and 50% of businesses identifying these two languages as the most useful, respectively).German is an inflected language with four cases for nouns, pronouns and adjectives (nominative, accusative, genitive, dative), three genders (masculine, feminine, neuter), two numbers (singular, plural), and strong and weak verbs. German derives the majority of its vocabulary from the ancient Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family. A portion of German words are derived from Latin and Greek, and fewer are borrowed from French and Modern English. With slightly different standardized variants (German, Austrian and Swiss Standard German), German is a pluricentric language. Like English, German is also notable for its broad spectrum of dialects, with many unique varieties existing in Europe and also other parts of the world. Due to the limited intelligibility between certain varieties and Standard German, as well as the lack of an undisputed, scientific difference between a "dialect" and a "language", some German varieties or dialect groups (e.g. Low German or Plautdietsch) are alternatively referred to as "languages" and "dialects".
