Made the topic because the Japanese topic were becoming too off-topic.

Apart from English, I speak Swedish and a little French. I can Norwegian and Danish.

The Swedish J (and also lj and dj) is pronounced like the English Y in 'yes'. There are some exceptions though. "Sj" is pronounced with a weird sound that only exists in Swedish and Norwegian. It's kind of something between "k" and "sh". "Tj" is pronounced like "sh".

What is "yes" in German?

(Apparently, I learned that in a book that's not about languages, but about ghosts... (And yes in French from the same book.)

Ja. That's also yes in Norwegian, Swedish, Dutch (I think) and Danish.

Good. Now I need to know "No"...

"Oui" is yes for French.

And apparently, the French and German varities of "yes" end up in the word "Ouija"...

... And you don't have to think about the "Board" part.
