Zo heel af en toe krijgen we een mailtje uit het Australische GrongGrong. Dit schrijven ontvingen wij afgelopen week. Het gaat over woorden die twee betekenissen hebben, één voor mannen en één voor vrouwen.

Het is helaas voor diegenen die deze taal niet zoh zo goed spreken in het engels, maar vertaald verliest het de essentie van het verhaal. Om flink te kunnen lachen zou je dan de automatische vertaler van de computer aan kunnen zetten, dan kun je ook lachen om de vertalingen die het apparaat geeft met totaal verkeerde zinsopbouwingen……….
