    Yoda speech

    Can anyone provide me with some of Master Yoda's speech examples. (from the Star Wars).

    I've only watched Star Wars with a Russian dubbing so the original was lost.

    I just need to see how Yoda speech inflicted the normal word order in English in order to ape it later.

    ЗЫ: He's my distant relative, you know. There is definitely some semblances. Would you just look at my avatar.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Basically you just alter the word order so it sounds ridiculous -- something you can do in English, but not so much in Russian. Or, do in English you may, but in Russian you may do not so much. Or something like that...
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.”

    I think Russian was Yoda's native language.
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.

    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.

    No doubts. My mom can say something like "ты вчера был где?" with no problems.

    Давайте все как мастер Йода в точности слова произносить! Форум этот лучше будет ещё!
    Сила со всеми да прибудет!
    Я так думаю.
