The Latin Language was a parent of mine.
Latin   Tuesday, March 16, 2004, 07:59 GMT
No, I was your lover. I left you but not as I found you.
German   Tuesday, March 16, 2004, 08:57 GMT
No, I was your father, English. Latin tried to take you from me in a paternal lawsuit, but died before the case went to court. Your mother is Old Norse. Your brother is Norman French, your grandfather Celtic.

No Celtic is just some interloper. You know - the guy who pops up in your holiday photos.

No, I am the linguistic equivalent of a Palestinian. You Israelis took my land from me.

We're talking about language not land and before you go shooting your mouth off, show us the deeds. No, you're the linguistic equivalent of WMDs, much talked about but never seen.

Us heit,
dy't yn de himelen binne;
jins namme wurde hillige.
Jins keninkryk komme.
Jins wollen barre allyk yn 'e himel,
sa ek op ierde.
Jow ús hjoed ús deistich brea.
En forjow ús ús skulden,
allyk ek wy forjowe ús skuldners.
En lied ús net yn forsiking,
mar forlos ús fan 'e kweade.
Hwant Jowes is it keninkryk en de krêft
en de hearlikheit oant yn ivichheit.

Ár n-athair, atá ar neamh: go naofar d'ainm.
Go dtaga do riocht.
Go ndéantar do thoil ar an talamh,
mar dhéantar ar neamh.
Ár n-arán laethiúl tabhair dúinn inniu,
agus maith dúinn ár bhfiacha,
mar mhaithimid dár bhféichiúnaithe féin.
Agus ná lig sinn i gcathú,
ach saor sinn ó olc.
Óir is leatsa an Ríocht agus an Chumhacht
agus an Ghloir, tré shaol na saol.

Onze Vader,
die in de hemelen zijt,
geheiligd zij Uw naam.
Uw rijk kome,
Uw wil geschiede op aarde als in de hemel.
Geef ons heden ons dagelijks brood,
en vergeef ons onze schulden,
gelijk ook wij vergeven aan onze schuldenaren.
En leid ons niet in bekoring,
maar verlos ons van het kwade.

Notre Père qui es aux cieux!
Que ton nom soit sanctifié;
que ton règne vienne;
que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain quotidien;
pardonne-nous nos offenses,
comme nous aussi nous pardonnons à ceux qui nous ont offensés;
ne nous induis pas en tentation,
mais délivre-nous du malin.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiennent, dans tous les siècles,
le règne, la puissance et la gloire.

My favorite English word is "because"...I don't know why
Yaseen   Friday, March 19, 2004, 21:39 GMT
I like "indulge", "obsession"
Welsh   Saturday, March 20, 2004, 00:22 GMT
Celtic is my mother. Celtic is also the mother of my brother, Gaelic, and my sisters, Scots and Cornish (deceased).

I like the word spork
Ash   Monday, March 22, 2004, 21:34 GMT
not only is it a fun word to say but the thing itself is absolutly funny to look at. As a combination of fork and spoon it's not much good for either of the two uses!

Sporks are stupid. I hate sporks. Restaurants and schools that give out sporks are so cheap.
