    /'ime (i)pe'rifanos pu 'ime 'elinas/ (masc.) /'ime (i)pe'rifani pu 'ime eli'niða/ (fem.)

    *Adj. «(υ)περήφανος, (υ)περήφανη, (υ)περήφανο» (often the upsilon is omitted) /(i)pe'rifanos (i)pe'rifani (i)pe'rifano/ (masc. fem. neut.) a Classical adj. «ὑπερήφανος, -ος, -ον» hŭpĕ'rēpʰānŏs, hŭpĕ'rēpʰānŏs, hŭpĕ'rēpʰānŏn (masc. fem. neut.) --> proud, splendid, presumptuous

    Just FYI, I think that US English speakers would be more likely to say,

    I'm proud to be an American.

    In Turkish:

    "Türk olmaktan gurur duyuyorum."

    or in a more nationalist way we say:

    "Ne mutlu Türküm diyene!"

    which means "Happy is a man who says I am a Turk!" or "Cheers to whoever that considers himself a Turk!".

    Believe it or not it's a rather difficult task to translate it into Hungarian. (No kidding) The Czech sentences sounds quite normal to me.

    magyar: Büszke vagyok rá, hogy magyar vagyok. [but it sounds a little bit unnatural to me]

    I'm proud of being a Norwegian.

    The following is more appropriate for me:

    Remark: The structure of this Chinese sentence is quite different from the English one, as it's almost impossible to keep the structure when translating it into Chinese.
    The Chinese sentence literally means: "As Chinese, I feel very proud."

    Hi, forgive me for having no knowledge about Catalan. What is the difference between feminine and masculine style?
  23. Dymn Senior Member

    Catalan, Catalonia
    If you're a man you say orgullós and català, if you're a woman you say orgullosa and catalana. This happens in many European languages, Romance ones included.
