Behind the scenes…

… I have been starting a German blog, the URL of which I am going to post here when the time is right.

  10. The king did indeed go to Reading. I think if you substitute cwen for cyning your repertoire becomes substantially expanded by the addition of the the phrase, “The queen goes/went to Reading,” which needless to say is a great boon to one’s communication skills.

  11. A secret blog? How insidious…

  12. Andrew: Natuurlijk praten de Duitsers ‘Dutch’, angezien het feit het Nederlands gewoon een dialect van het Duits is (volgens sommigen, maar der Nederlanders houden er niet zo veel van deze mening). Nou kijk je, hé?
