Engleza este “partout”, au glumit colaboratorii de la traduceri baze de date Constanta, insa, chiar si in conditiile acestei predominante, tot mai sunt persoane care sunt derutate de aspecte specifice ale acestei lingua franca (tot traducatorii de baze de date din Constanta au venit si cu aceasta gluma). Ca sa demonstreze ca nici macar vorbitorii englezei nu sunt feriti de aceasta deruta, colaboratorii de la traduceri site-uri Constanta au adunat cateva citate amuzante in acest sens:
Our language is funny – a ‘fat chance’ and a ‘slim chance’ are the same thing. (J. Gustav White)
If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers. (Doug Larson)
Why do we have noses that run and feet that smell? (Anonim)
The quantity of consonants in the English language is constant. If omitted in one place, they turn up in another. When a Bostonian ‘pahks’ his ‘cah,’ the lost ‘r’s migrate southwest, causing a Texan to ‘warsh’ his car and invest in ‘erl wells. (Anonim)
‘I am’ is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that ‘I do’ is the longest sentence? (George Carlin)
English grammar is so complex and confusing for the one very simple reason that its rules and terminology are based on Latin, a language with which it has precious little in common. (Bill Bryson)
Introducing ‘Lite’ – The new way to spell ‘Light’, but with twenty percent fewer letters. (Jerry Seinfeld)
When I read some of the rules for speaking and writing the English language correctly, I think any fool can make a rule, and every fool will mind it. (Henry David Thoreau)
Never make fun of someone who speaks broken English. It means they know another language. (H. Jackson Brown, Jr.)
