Oh, I've the same feeling concerning British. Australian and Black American are ok. But what about South African English? It sounds like German! And you still can understand it. The only "English" I totally don't understand is Jamaican!!! Of course, it's the hybrid of English and some native (local) Jamaican language, but Jamaicans still call it "Broken English". By the way none of my co-workers are able to understand it too. So seems to be we need to find the definition of where the English ends and something different (hybrid in this case) begins.


I?ve had some difficulties trying to understand Indians, especially the way they speak with each other mixing English words with Hindu or whatever language they speak. Once there was a funny situation when I said to my friend in Russian that we had to buy a watermelon. An Indian guy was in the same room and started laughing when he heard the word ?арбуз?. :) It turned out that in Hindu they say ?garbuz?, so we found at least one common word that Indians and Russians use. Now I wonder where the word garbuz/арбуз comes from. :)

There is another funny thing about Indians. As far as I know, many of them don't have sex before marriage. :) I knew a 27-year old Indian guy who wasn?t married and had never had sex before. The rules are probably even stricter for Indian women then for men. I?m kind of confused: if Indians are so strict about sex, how could they ever create Kama Sutra? :)

IMHO, Kama-Sutra is not a creation of the regular Indians. It was invented and intended mostly for sacred and temple prostitution.

P.S.: I'm a Green-Eyed Club member too... :)

It might mean "I was blabbing a lot before (but not now...)"

And you'd better tell us about the context, in which you faced with this expression.
