Other than English, I speak 3 other languages. Unfortunately nobody else speaks them so everyone thinks I'm just making them up.

To answer the 2nd part, It would be a toss up between Spanish and Chinese.

I assume like most prospective employers, you don't count pig latin?

English, Spanish and French (conversational, not fully fluent). I used to have a basic understanding of Russian, but the "use it or lose it" rule did away with that.

I'd like to be able to speak Japanese right now, because the apps I bought a few months ago to learn it have been gathering dust in my hard drive. Same for the 3 levels of Pimsleur lessons. Man, I gotta get on that.

I'm fluent in English, Sarcasm and Hick speak. All three come in handy at times.

Does Simlish count? If not, fluent only in English, but also have some understanding of Spanish and ASL. The syntax of Spanish and ASL are similar so sometimes when I tried to "speak" one or the other in college, I would come up with part in Spanish and part in ASL. Forget Spanglish, I think I invented SpanASL!

ETA: I always thought it'd be cool to learn Yiddish.

English, Portugues, Spanish, Tepehuan. So 4 I guess but who's counting. :)

English, Internet (including l33t and lolcat), Sarcasm, and Pirate.

2, and bits of German, Italian, and French

bitte ein bit, fraulein!

Bits and pieces of English, Spanish, German. Some Perl, Python, etc. Forgot all my Latin.

Would love to learn Japanese but my brain seems to rebel at distinguishing and resolving the proper sound, tempo, pitch.

I fluently speak English and French. I also sign ASL. I can understand most German and Russian, but have a problem with reading and speaking it. I know a little Japanese and can say simple things in spanish (lived in Mexico for 6 months so can order and find the bathroom). Would like to learn Italian and Gaelic.

I barely speak one language well, let alone multiple! Learning another language has been on my bucket list for quite some time, and I actually just picked up Rosetta Stone Spanish, so hopefully soon I'll know two!

English, Swedish fluently (and read/write). Danish and Norwegian enough to get around, and a little bit of German.

vote-for3vote-against

English, Mandarin Chinese, and some Portuguese. I started learning Portuguese later than Chinese, but it's progressing much faster :)

English (American), Redneck, Southern (there is a difference), and am working on Mumble which seems pretty heavily used these days.

@captainsuperdawg: @mtm2: Wish I had multiple upvotes for your replies. I'm so right there witcha. Sensuous up, why didn't you get me another beer? (Props to Jeff Foxworthy on my last sentence.)

@mtm2: It's an extremely fine line between redneck/hick and southern languages. Unless by southern, you mean cajun. Those guys are in a world of their own, but in a good way.

I speak English -- of course, Spanglish fluently, Spanish pretty good, enough French to save my life, enough Sarcasm to get me killed, "Southern" enough to live in Florida... and so forth lol

weird thing about southern accents; I picked one up while at fort knox kentucy for basic training, just 14 weeks. Took about 2 months to lose later on.

I don't speak a prime number of languages :(
