Say It In Your Language Part 2

Wed Nov 23, 2005 10:09 pm

Given the overwhelming number of people willing to help me out on the last one, I thought I'd start another say it in your language thread.

Right so this time, how do you say:

"Would you like french fried potato chips with your main meal?"

in your language?

In Elbonian
"Shall (les eaux) you have some frites avec le main course ?"

French fried potato chips? What's that? Do you want french fries or potato chips (two different things)

In average Latin American Spanish:

¿Quiere/Desea patatas fritas junto al curso/plato principal?

In Argentine Spanish:

¿Querés papas fritas de guarnición?

In Lunfardo, or inner city talk:

¿Chabón, papastafri pa'morfar?

Awww you gotta love that "language"  Silly

Once when I was at my sister-in-laws family in the Swiss Valais, one of her relatives wished me a "Happy Easter" in "german" because that was the only language we both understood. My brother had to pinch me and whisper in my ear what to respond after her repeating herself 3 times, for me to understand what she was on about!

Few Swiss German-speakers really understand the dialect of the "Wallis" which is a rather extreme "language" , so that your NON-understanding of them is rather natural

Yes the Zurich accent is the CUTEST! At Vienna airport 2 weeks ago a Swiss lady from there asked me if I had a lighter so she could have a cigarette. I just wanted to pinch her cheeks and give her a smooch on the lips!
