It's a beautiful language, English. Other languages are so roundabout--
(TR RUSSIAN GIBBERISH)
GK: All that, just to say, "awesome." No wonder the Soviet Union fell. German: it's nothing but hard work. Our word "grunge" -- this is how you'd express it in German.
(TR LONG GERMAN GIBBERISH)
GK: It makes a person laugh out loud. Or LOL. This is LOL in Swedish.
(TR SWEDISH GIBBERISH)
GK: They just don't get it. This is "don't get it" in French.
(TR FRENCH GIBBERISH)
GK: One more reason to stick with the English Language. It's got the words you need. A message from the Professional Organization of English Majors.
