Top Ten Words for "Left" and "Right" in Different Languages

darthvadern
This is a bit of a different list, this will be a list showing what left and right sound in different languages, and comment about in which language we think left and right sounds best, that's the point of the list. Without further ado, let's a go!

The Top Ten

1 Kairę vs. Dešinė (Lithuanian)

This is definitely the language where left and right sounds the best, honestly both left and right sounds awesomne in lithuanian! I think Kaire sounds little bit better due to it sounding a bit more colorful, but I love the sound of desine, it sounds like the french word dessine which means drawing, love the lithuanian words! - darthvadern

2 Gauche vs. Droite (French)

Another language where the two words sound awesomne! Gauche sounds like something colorful and omftorable, droite sounds like droid, I prefer gauche between the two, it just sounds better somehow even though droite sounds cool too. - darthvadern

3 Vänster vs. Höger (Swedish)

And here we have my main language, swedish. This is one of few languages where both left and right sound pretty good (along with lithuanian and french). I prefer Vänster because it somehow sounds more colorful than Höger, though I still like höger. #ORD VÄNSTER ÄGER - darthvadern

4 Left vs. Right (English)

Well of course I would include the english words in here too, I mean this is an english website after all. I honestly think left sounds far better, right just sounds not right (no pun intended). I really hate the fact that right is the "right word" while left means left, anyways I prefer left in this language. - darthvadern

I noticed you preferred left over right in every language. - Oxymoron15

Yeah, I don't know why but it just kinda sounds better for some reason even though left means negatives things in many languages - darthvadern

5 Links vs. Recht (German)

Now where are geting into the languages where I think one of them sound cool and one does not. Links is my choice here, it sounds like Link from Nintendo, although recht does sound like the swedish word rätt which means correct or right, it still sonds pretty bad honestly in my opinion - darthvadern

6 Лева (Leva) vs. Правa (Prava) (Russian)

Now we're geting into the russian words: Leva and Prava. I prefer leva, because even though it means negative and prava means something positive, I prefer leva by far, it sounds like the swedish word "leva" which means to live, I love it! Whereas prava sounds ok, but very odd in my opinion - darthvadern

7 Izquierda vs. Derecho (Spanish)

Now we're getting into the languages were I think neither sound that interesting, I prefer Izquierda though, it kinda sounds like the pokemon Rayquaza for some reason. Derecho sounds repetitive (Why does the word right have an obsession with beggining with a D in so many languages? Desine, derecho, droite, dexter, it gets old! ) - darthvadern

8 Forlasis vs. Dekstra (Esperanto)

Esperanto, the easiest language in the world, I just had to have the esperanto words for left and right. This language also suffers from the whole "right starts with D" thing. So Forlasis gets my vote. It sounds like a stream of water which I love. Dekstra just sounds repetitive. - darthvadern

9 Sinister vs. Dexter (Latin)

Please do not hate me but I think sinister sounds much better than dexter, dexter just sounds super weird. I'm more familiar with the word sinister, it might sound a bit evil but I've never really cared about it. - darthvadern

Man, Right’s Laboratory is the best T.V. show. - MrCoolC

10 Vasen vs. Oikea (Finnish)

Alright, good ol' finnish. I prefer Vasen here, it sounds like the swedish king Gustav Vasa which were one of the greatest swedish heroes of all time! Oikea just sounds like it was made in the last second, you will understand why if you know swedish. - darthvadern
