Crazy Tongues  August 4, 2007 - August 4, 2008

Reading and Deliberating

Details

This contest is to take a few words from languages, and write a piece of prose outlining how they mean in English.

An example is the word "Cool", which phoetically means s**t in Slovak. Or no, which is short for Ano, meaning yes in Slovak. Or take our Euro... it means Urine in Greek.

And in Romany, dik means to look or see. It is a bit ruder in English!!!

This should be fun!!!
