    Good evening, all.

    Arthgon, you're Frisian? I've wanted to try this for years, but never knew any Frisians... Does this mean anything to you? "Bûter, brea, en griene tsiis."

    Yes. I am a Frisian indeed. It does mean something to me. "Bûter, Brea en Griene Tsiis, wa’t dat net sizze kin is gjin oprjochte Fries." There is this story that Grute Pier used this line to identify Frisians from their enemies.

    I thought you would know - you were the one talking to him in some kind of bastardized Dutch. Good morning.

    I know. But it was not German or a basterdized Dutch either. It is Frisian. This is a minority language in the Netherlands. Just like you got in the Basken.

    Huh? It is not even related to Dutch and is much older. Good Midday.

    Hmm, you're right. I looked it up and it's more like bastardized English. I apologize, sir, and bid you good morning.

    Smuel: Basterdized English? Yes and no.
