LOL.. That would fit well in the 'Unfortunate typo's' thread, even though it's not really a typo, it would fit in with the discussion about using Google translate for translations.

If we're on the subject of Star Wars parodies, I find myself strangely compelled to keep re-watching this one:



(I love the internet)

And now Danielle Cash (Eruname) tells me if I knew the proper Dutch pronunciation, it would spoil the joke!

Well, for now, I'll just be glad I don't speak Dutch...it was the best laugh I've had all day! :rofl:

I know the proper Dutch pronunciation, but I also know how Americans tend to pronounce it/how it was intended to be pronounced in the meme. It sounds kinda pretentious if American's say it the way it would be said in Dutch.

Rose, I couldn't wrap my tongue and throat around how it's supposed to be pronounced on the best day I ever had! When I was studying German, those guttural sounds always eluded me!

Frelga, we are friends on FB. She doesn't post very often, but as far as I can tell, she's doing fine. Jen was having a really bad time recently, and Eru was one of the people who came to London to moot with her and support her:

I did art appreciation for children for many years. When it comes to something like 'VanGogh' I would pronounce it the 'English' way but I would also (at least attempt) to pronounce it the proper way so that they would know if they ever heard it pronounced differently.

I'm tempted to get one on canvas, but I'd have serious trouble deciding which one:

This does look good in a frame, though....
