How can a language be civilised or uncivilised?!?!

Personally, I think that the more guttural a language is, the more uncivilized it is. However, that's purely aesthetic, and reflects my preference for Italian.

As for Russian... I don't understand how they can pronounce half those words! It should be illegal to assemble consonants together like this: vststv

I'll admit that it sounds beautiful when Russians pronounce it.
