Sooo anyhooddle. Doc slipped up and didn't post Friday's Foreign Language Cards, and as this was to be only the second installment of a new major feature, he decided to ask me,
THE HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR,
to fill in for him. I was at first insulted that he would ask me to do such a low-brow and common thing, but as I didn't have anything else going on, I thought what the hell? I love languages as much as the next Emperor, and these are some far out tongues! Let me tell you!
To make up for the late installment I am going to just shotgun them at ya.
- jiu: nine
- mian: face
- nu: female
- qing: fine,sunny
- shi: teacher
As in: One qing day, I met my nu shi with the qing mian, and she was dressed to the jiu's.
- geisteg ebenburttig: congenial, kindred
- Zahnstumpf: snag
- Sprachbehinderungen: speech impairment
- Ich werde das Kind beim Namen nennen: I call a spade a spade.
- Torheit: folly.
I really don't know what to make of these. Any suggestions, leave them in the comments.
Well there you have it! Two languages covered. I know the last installment had some Russian, but Doc didn't leave the cards out where His Highness could find them. So I issued a Royal decree and threw in a little German instead. I had to learn it, you may as well too. I had to try and rule those ungrateful heretics with all their Calvinism and such. Tripe. All of it.
Well that's it for me then. Fare thee well, or peace-out, or whatever you kids are calling it now.
His Royal Highness, The Holy Roman Emperor,
Charles V. (but chuck to his friends)
