When you are angry with yourself because you said "los" instead of "os" when your boss passed by your office door with a Brazilian lady, pointed at you and said "say something in Portuguese"

You are furious with one of the presidential candidate in your country because he could
not give his election speech properly in his own "mother tongue". (Mandarin)

Haha... In which language does "like" translate as "arr"?

Unfortunately, I think that would be "Pirate," not very language-nerdy at all.

I found the pirate one amusing. Mango Languages has a pirate course that it debuted around the time of Pirates of the Caribbean IV came out, and it will bring that back again yearly in September for "Talk Like a Pirate Day."


YKYALNW... when your enthusiasm for languages affects other people's awareness of the world.

Example: Was talking to my mom on the phone today, and she said she finally started paying attention to the kana when looking at a news report about the Japanese economy. She said without me studying Japanese, she wouldn't have paid any attention to the characters at all. Now she sees them all over.

I don't see the l33t-speak "like" button! I wonder if facebook took it off. Last I
remember it was "<3" I think.

YKYALK when you start translating a novel you wrote into a language you made up. Of
course a greater language nerd would probably finish before getting distracted.

When you think it's a cool idea to have a dubstep remix of all the Assimil courses with
all the dialogues in.
