    I have heard this many times before, "could we save this for a different thread" - but alas it was not usually said so nicely. And I am surprised not to hear it yet on this one due to the posters. I guess they must like the topic.

    I do think it is fine to throw a little comment in of a foreign language every once and a while, I will not run off pouting that I don't understand and feel like someone might be saying something derogatory that I don't know about, God forbid. And Bablefish didn't seem to help that much anyway

    I 'spose that the updates on how the wondrous CK is doing will come back, at least I hope. For now it has been interesting, and thanks for the language lesson.

    Carolina, watashi ha anata ni kenkou o nozomi, kaifuku ni sokushin suru. Koori de nogasa re te aru.

    I think since the whole thing was a joke that was taken wrongly by some people its floggin a dead horse a little but generally i would only say that tongue would mean a language when it's preceded by "mother" otherwise it would not be common to hear people say "What tongues do you speak"...though it would be understood!

    Ant- Creo que en Espanol, La lengua (tongue) and La lengua (language) son los mismos. Tambien significa idioma.

    Je pense que le forum est plus amusant avec cette discussion.

    Soon I'll have an exam of French, so I'll hope someone will correct me if I did a mistake.

    If I could change the title this would now be the "speak whatever language you want" thread, since I bet it has nothing to do with Carolina

    Carolina speaks five languages, Italian, German, English, French and Ladinic. Ladinic is a dialect that's linguistically similar to French and local to the region (Tyrol) where she grew up.

    Caro is a Tyrolian? Maybe her mother was a Trapp kid.

    yeah, but she doesn't speak the languages that people here in this thread are talking in (besides English of course). if I got it right I heard (saw) Serbian and Spanish.
