German isn't that hard if you studied a bit of Latin. Compared to that language, German is pretty easy.

Latin has nominatief, accusatief, genitief, datief and ablatief (sorry, Dutch names), and practically every ******* word changes depending on the meaning it has in the sentence.

did you not learn the latin names nominativus, genitivus, dativus, accusativus, ablativus in your Latin class? I did and I'm dutch as well

It's possible, it's six years ago, and I don't really use it in daily life, so my knowledge of Latin isn't that good at all.

Just to clear a few things,
man goes to men,
all things that end if 'f' go to 'ves', so it's a rule
all double 'o' sounds become double 'e', and
all things that end in 'y' become 'ies'.

It's still a pain in the ass to learn as a second language.

As a German I found learning English easy as pie. The structure of it is not that complex, but on the other hand I understand how one can get confused by all the exceptions.

Then again, try finding regular verbs and nouns in German....

Also inb4, hurr durr, you made mistakes in your text.

Oh most definitely, it is fraught with exceptions, because it's just cobbled from so many other languages, but at least it uses the same alphabet as many other languages, and having similar roots or being derived from another language makes words easier to figure out.

Why can't we just all use Lojban. It's like Latin but better because there are only 1300 words which can be stacked together to make lots more words.

dude, don't call it that. there is no easier way to get both serbs and croatians to hate you.
As someone born in Sarajevo I think we should just meet in the middle and call it Bosnian.

Seriously though, if you ignore 50 years of yugoslavian attempts to meld it into one language and go to either pre-yugoslavian languages or today's serbian and croatian, linguistically those are two different languages.

the last row actually means more along the lines of "of the"
for example,
der Herr = the lord, die Ringe = the ring,

the lord of the rings = der Herr der Ringe

Similar rules apply to Russian. It really isn't that hard, just practice for a day and you've got the hang of it.
