Just a drive-by to point out a thread at Language Log that might amuse some people.

Thanks for that link. It's wonderful. Scroll up to the top for the revised version of John Kanaka:
"I thought I heard the old man say
Eyjafjallajökull blew today
we'll fly tomorrow but not today
Eyjafjallajökull blew today

Both a lovely updating of an island chantey and a lesson in how to (sort of) pronounce Eyjafjallajökull.

Also some other good suggestions for volcano chanteys in the discussion.
Blessings,
Barbara

What a Parlava?
It was hardly bloody Pompey was it ?
not one mention on the news about the Icelandic nationals and other cultures and how they may have been affected? bloody greed Over reaction and they all blamed one another.

Im old school and I have never seen such a bloody fiasco in all my born days.

This world is being restructured by fucking idiots?

I rarely swear.
Regards Pierre

A very uplifting chantey and I'm sure it will be the hit of the Mystic Sea Music Festival this year.

Thanks, skarpi. What about the o with the dots above it?

In German, that would mean saying long a (as in 'stay') and rounding the lips. Is that how it is done in Icelandic?

A Yankee plane flew into ash
Blow, boys, blow
But she couldn't land and we all lost cash
Blow, eyjafjallajökull, Blow

:D

The volcano puffed out loads of hash yo ho.
The volcano puffed out loads of hash yo oh
The volcano puffed out loads of hash.
The planes did not fly fore fear of a Crash
I have never heard such a load of Trash
Mother nature has the right fore a smoke.
