Ooooh, poppets.

I need to let you all know [...]

i'm thinking... wait... i didn't see any poppets.  who was clever enough to make poppets for a language swap and how did they make that connect?  (i'm a sucker for a recherch connection)

and then i realized it was another australianism.  right?  well that will get me in practice for when schnerby's chinese- and australian-learning package arrives.   Grin

I made her a Travelling Journal to use when she goes to Barcelona, it has useful spanish terms and interesting places in Barcelona to visit with pictures. Also a notebok with some quotes from favourite movies, bands, books, etc both in Spanish and English. A Bowtie scarf, a headband and two brooches.

"No hay lenguas meurtas"
Does that mean there are no dead languages?

I have yet to receive so I don't know what sort of goodies my partner has in store for me....but I would be ever so thankful if some one would translate these phrases for me into Spanish. It would help me immensely for work:
Please put your knife away.
Finish cutting your ____ and then you can take your (ten/thirty) minute break.

I also had some one teach me the other day how to say "There are aliens in my brain!" But I can't get the word "aliens" down no matter how hard I try. I think I need to see it written before I can memorize it. "Hay ____ en mi cerebro."

If you can't tell I work in a restuarant :@)

It's been over a week now, my partner should have received! I wonder how it's going... hopefully not lost somewhere, mid-Atlantic.

I was tempted to throw in more Australianisms than you could poke a stick at, but you might then have to translate the Aussie to translate the Chinese! He he he.

I am sending something else to Nataluna that I couldn't buy on time. I went to visit the craftsman who makes the thing I wanted, and instead purchased a super cool _______ from one of his apprentices - an incredibly focused 8-year-old. Seriously, this kid was amazing!

Yep, it's a quote from a book, on the cover it says: "There are no dead languages, (and on the back) only dormant minds [solo mentes adormecidas]"
Please put your knife away.

1) Does "please put your knife away" is like please put it somewhere else(a), move it or is it (b)something like putting it in a drawer or case?

(A)Por favor saque su cuchillo
(b) Por favor guarde(n) su cuchillo

-

"Hay aliengenas en mi cerebro" (there are aliens in my brain)
"Hay extraterrestres en mi cerebro" (there are ET's on my brian)
"Hay marcianos en mi cerebro" (there are martians on my brain)


I'm not very good at translating though :S

I can pick apart words here and there from time to time...so probably the second phrase about the knife. Often times I find kitchen knives laying around when they are supposed to be stored on the designated magnets strips on the walls.

And yes, Marcianos! Though I meant more to say aliens and not martians so it's good to see all versions. Cheesy

i like that phrase, too, especially as there are several endangered languages, like yiddish and basque, that i am personally interested in.

i also like the phrase by Borges "un idioma es una forma de memoria" only i think i have got it a little bit wrong.  oh yeah... google the backup brain... or should i say "google, la otra memoria" helps thus:

"esa otra memoria que es un idioma" - that other memory that is a language
or saying that language is another (kind of) memory of a people-group.

sorry that was a long way to get to an idea, i have "la mente dispersa" right now, my mind is all over the place sorry.
