Lena BS: Mangling the English Language (132* d) RE: BS: Mangling the English Language 10 Sep 00


"Mi GRABbi quella borsa?"(instead of:mi prendi quella borsa?!) "E' sotto il TABBoLo"(I.O:e' sotto il Tavolo) The first two examples I can think of the crazy italian/aussie english my sister and I can speak sometimes.
Besides,I 'm used to it in italian.It's a much more rogorous and difficult language,since it has been a higher class/intellectual/literary language for centuries before being forced to normal people and everyday life,and it's very demanding.You'll hardly have a conversation without one or two manglings.
