My computer(s) have been broken for a while, so I couldn't blog, but I replaced my netbook's trodden-on screen the other day, so my life can re-commence!
I have a theory, which has so far stood up to not-very-rigorous tests. It goes as follows: the only two things you need to learn to get by in any language are the words for "thank-you" and "cheers".
Here's my handy list:
- Language Thank-you Cheers
- Esperanto Dankon Je via sano!
- French Merci Sante
- Japanese Oregato Kampai
- Welsh Diolch yn fawr Iechyd da
- Klingon tlho' KaPLAA
- Irish Go raibh maith agat Slainte
