I would like to convey a rather complex idea in Russian.
Switzerland is a multilingual country where, among other languages, French and German are spoken.
However, there are more german-speaking Swiss who know French than french-speaking Swiss who know German, and I would like to tell exactly this in Russian.
I know the words англоговорящий and русскоговорящий. But I doubt just every language can be attached to this suffix (plus англо- and русско- are themselves adaptations into a prefix, and I don't know if every language has a prefix of its own).
- First, the sentence I am looking for. Does it work like this?
Есть больше немецкоговорящих швейцарцев, знающих французский, чем французскоговорящих швейцарцев, знающих немецкий.
Again, I'm not sure about the language prefixes. Maybe I could use "немецкие швейцарцы" and "французские швейцарцы" instead?
- Which are the language prefixes for the following languages? итальянский, португальский, испанский, японский.
