       ConsulFlaminicus beschwert sich darüber, daß das englische Wort für Brötchen in der milanesischen Taubensprache "Gräte" bedeutet. Oder so ähnlich.
jutta, Mar 05 2006

       Sehr interessant, die deutsche wort "Gräte" ist wie "great!".

       I lived in PNG for a year when I was about 3 or 4 years old. I don't remember much, but we lived out in these hills just covered in grass. I was really little, and when the wind was blowing, the hills looked like waves of green water, and I was afraid I would sink.

       I lived in JPG for a while. It was much smaller and simpler than PNG but I missed the beautiful transparency channel so I moved.

       [jutta] re your link... I believe that is a 'Kalkspachtel'.
ConsulFlaminicus, Mar 09 2006

       Oh. I was thinking lime, as in one third the scurvy-fighting power of a lemon. (Thanks for the beautiful link, spidermother!) What amused me was that it came up as a homonym of love, laikim. Guess those betel nuts must really be something.
