But we also have a Dickens' Pub.

Ah... "Don't let beer and common sense stop you?" I mean "fear".

What apostrophy? I know it's not a tilde, but there is a name to the thing. I
heard it once. It's likely a Spanish word. <D+G>

Neither does Charles. I just know that "e" isn't there to augment the "a"! Two
vowels... My head hurts. <G> Teacher, can I go to the washroom? I REALLY gotta
go! <ROTF>

Wash your mouth out with soap! Young lady, I'll have you... My oh my!!!

You know... I've been using that quite a bit!

 AH> its mixed origin.  But you & I are carrying on this fine
 AH> tradition in Canada.  We use British & American English
 AH> together. I've also seen signs with descriptions like
 AH> "Chinese smorgasbord", "Vietnamese cuisine", and "BLT on a
 AH> bagel"... another aspect of the cultural mosaic.  :-))

That *is* rather funny! Can't say I don't play with "Vas is das?" It's mostly
German, so I've heard?


 JB>  I've been trying to learn a bit of Russian. I hear that
 JB>  language is easier to understand. <G>

 AH>           I don't know.  Russia is a pretty big country... they may
 AH> have local dialects just as we have in English-speaking
 AH> countries.  I understand somebody was trying to start up a
 AH> RUSSIAN_TUTOR echo not too long ago, however....  :-)

If the target audience was Russians, there'd be three hundred posts a day. I
picked up a few web sites to discover pronunciations of different symbols, and
how sentence structure works... All four Grand-parents spoke Ukrainian, and
knew little English at all. There were times when the only sitter on short
call...

I can ask for food, sleep, money... I can also call you a few choice
descriptions, after confusing me again with my English. <G>



... If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
