Since launching this site and asking people to send their translations of “I live here” in languages spoken in Queens, many have got in touch.
Most recently, for example:
Catalan: Jo visc aquí – sent by a mother-tongue speaker who lives in Astoria. Catalan was not on the most recent American Community Survey list of languages spoken at home in the borough – a reminder that there are probably many languages out there which are not on that list.
Lithuanian: Aš čia gyvenu
And Korean, which has an informal version: 私はここに住む and formal: 私はここに住みます
And here’s a video of my husband saying “I live here” in Spanish – as in, “Vivo aquí”. Videos for other languages spoken in Queens are welcome! I’ll post them on this site along with the translations.
