Teach yourself

I'm seeing a lot of this flag about. It supports Independence for Catalunya.

They are obviously on the path to World Domination - so it's about time you learned the language. I pick up most of it from looking at signs.

You remember what germans means.
You've seen this one already:

Don't forget the dot in the middle of the double L (below). It's compulsory.

click pic to see the dot. Do they sell HobNobs here?

Ous Ferrat anyone?
ous =egg
x = sh or ch as in xampú and xocolata
Watch your cotxes

Sorry Oz and Lily.

Is this any better?

It isn't vinegar - but at that price it might taste the same?

Use of Catalan vocabulary in comments box will be welcome - but not essential.

Oz is very taken with the idea of sitting under a parasol on the beach drinking Ribena. Thanks for giving him ideas above his station.

I'm thinking of sending him to Dogalonia.

Post Script: veig que Google ara ofereix una traducció en Catalin. Google és meravellós Google és genial. Kaz Bon Nadal!

Do you mean Oz fancies sitting on the platja drinking vi negre?
And surely it would be Gossolonia.

Excellent - but there will be no googling allowed in the end of post test.
And - és massa aviat for Nadal - but same to you.

Fourth, just behind Hamilton as it 'appens. Good old Buttons is World Champion. I realise that this has nothing whatsoever to do with your post. Me hace dolor.

Himself told me that not google!

Sorry I don't like my ferrats mini, if I'm going to have them I want big ones.

Now Kaz, you already know the extent of my Spanish ( Catalan or otherwise).
Mia burro esta mucho rapido.

Catalan World domination? Fine by me as long as we can watch Barca every week - man alive, they can play!

What's Roses doing on the menu?

Blogger Steve said...

Being a Midlander I can barely speak English. I'm not sure I could cope with any kind of second language.

7:24 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Thanks - I heard it here first.
I suspect that 'Me hace dolor' is Spanish - but I'm sorry it hurts.

I suppose you want your ferrats covered in spangles as well. I'll see what I can do.
You could give rapido burro rides on the platja and make a fortune.

If Catalans ruled the world watching Barca every night will be compusory.
No arguments about yesterday... eh?

Anxoves come from Roses.
Do I have to tell you everything?

7:24 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Surely English is your second language :0)
At least they don't lisp in Catalan.

I like that x is given more to do in Catalan vs English.

PS: I'm still afraid of x in math though!

Oh Hai MJ!

7:49 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

I've brought my bus pass just in case.

Just send the roses to me instead.
You'll need a net to catch the anxoves.

It's hot in that there chip pan.

Yes the x key on the keyboard will get lots of punishment.
Just think of x as ch.
There - not half as scary is it?

I have enough trouble speaking Welsh, let alone Catalan.

Like most of us, I have nothing worthwhile to say in any language, although I did once explain the secret of existence in Yoruba.

¡Mi palabra!

Incluso las bloody marcas del excalamtion son al revés..
seriously, you just can't toss a copywrite symbol in a word like "upside©down"?

Porqué can't they hablan the King's inglés como gente civilizada como las otras colonias?

Hola, Bon dia.

No n'hi ha prou amb una llengua. Parles anglès?

8:03 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

I don't think the Welsh wil ever achieve world domination.
But I'm usually wrong about these things.

It's such a pity the members of your audience were all Swahili speakers.

I didn't know you were a Trekkie.

You are making rapid progress.
Rapido Burro was transferred from Real Madrid in 2007. No doubt he'll soon be playing for Manchester City.

Dinah 2:
Obviously i had to Google that - and you were no2!
Please don't let the fame go to your head.

I usually find your comments a challenge but revés has got me beaten.
Those ¡ are more Spanish. The l.l is Catalan.

No need to explain dearest. The Harry Trumann was just a one off.

8:05 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

The Spanish may be useful where you're going - but not the Catalan.
I'm happy for you as well.

Bon Dia to you too.
Yes - please let's Parles anglès - I'm sorry I started this as I can't understand most of the comments.

Blogger Roses said...

I have enough problems speaking English, don't be confusing me with Catalan speak.

Blogger Roses said...

Tinc prou problemes de parla anglès, no em confon amb el català parlar.

Blogger Roses said...

So there.

Blogger KAZ said...

Roses 1:
Thanks for translating first.
Roses 2:
I don't have to translate - but isn't Tinc a great word?
Roses 3:
But did you wear your new boots for the blog meet?

Blogger dh said...

Shouldn't there be a dot between the Ls in perill? Just asking.

6:32 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Excellent point dh - you have obviously been paying attention.
I think the compulsoriness of the dot only applies to Ls in the middle of words.

So...if a Catalan lady married a Mr. Llewellyn...would she be allowed only one .?
(First time I saw that I thought it was a sign writer's typo!)

3:35 am  
Blogger Roses said...

No I didn't wear the new boots to the blog meet. I wear the black pair to work, most of my work clothes being black and grey. My brown boots I mostly wear at home, when I know I don't have to walk far.

Spangles work with anything darling.
Sorry mia burro doesn't like sand much.

7:54 pm  
Blogger Kevin Musgrove said...

do they still sell Spangles in Catalunya?

9:15 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Can I have an easy question first?
If she's a typical Catalan she'll probably stick with her maiden name.

Well that's sorted that out.
Dave wouldn't have noticed if you were wearing Mickey Mouse slippers.

Do you provide your friends with shades?

They prefer xupa xups.

It's O.K I don't cause any eye damage as long as you don't look at me in direct sunlight.

8:39 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Are you sure you didn't forget anything?

Looking at me in direct sunlight these days is also inadvisable.
