"They comes"? Even in IB English, is that grammatical? I thought -s was only used for 2nd and 3rd person singular? Nik 19:59, 27 May 2006 (PDT)

The batavian seem to have quite the sense of humour to chose *that* as their national anthem. Why bits of french though ? --Marc Pasquin 20:49, 27 May 2006 (PDT)


I was wondering, initially the national anthem of the Soviet Union was the "Internationale". *There* there was no USSR but the CSDS. Wonder if the national anthem of the CSDS could had been the "Internationale" as this country took in a strong way the role of the communist USSR in IB world.--Pedromoderno 00:43, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Hm. Chukotka was established 9 years earlier and might have grabbed the "Internationale" first. Of course, they both could use the same song, possibly. Benkarnell 12:00, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Indeed. In real world there were situations when several countries used the same national anthem, or the same music with different lyrics. Such popular songs are Beethoven's 9th symphony, God Bless Africa, Internationale. Also now Greece and Cyprus use the same national anthem (both music and lyrics).

Does anyone have the Brithenig translation of the 'Land of our Forefathers?
