language fun:


Same words...but different meanings. French has many homophones, look at the following sentence:

Le ver vert va vers le verre vert.

This means: The green worm goes towards the green glass.

Or try this:

Si six scies scient six cigares, six-cent-six scies scient six-cent six cigares.

The meaning isn't important (If six saws saw six cigars, six hundred and six saws saw six hundred and six cigars.) It's the pronunciation that's fun! (see-see-see-see-see-seegar, see-sanh-see-see-see-sanh-see-see-gar.) Ah well, I thought it was amusing...

Bog, God Dag, He'Ha, and Boozhoo! What am I on about? I was just saying "Hello", that's all. I found Jennifer Runner's language site and it's great. Although it's a serious project with the goal of listing "Hello", "Goodbye", etc in every language in the world, it's also a lot of fun. There is also a huge list of language resources on this site.

Please click here to see for yourself how to say "Hello" in hundreds of languages.

Also, if you can help Jennifer add to her list, the words/phrases she's looking for are:

  1. hello

  8. thank you
  9. do you speak English?
