When you were slightly tipped in favour of buying some (quite expensive) Aloe Dent
toothpaste because one side of the box was printed in Italian. Just Italian on that one
side, and English everywhere else. Not multi-lingual like many products.

No idea why. It's not an Italian firm, is it?

A friend of mine who lives in the Midlands (of England) claims to see a resemblance
between dialect there and German. Presumably, the connection would be via the Mercian
variety of Anglo-Saxon.

I live in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and I see a lot of resemblance between my city's dialect
and Norwegian.
