OK, here goes... Norwegian (Bokmål): ------------------- Hvis du kaller meg for sinnssyk en gang til, så skal jeg spise det andre øyet ditt. [Taliesin or any other native speaker, please correct if necessary.] Jameld: ------- Eöx ye nimen dëvo ime yeck, me tsald mesten yeü uthi iy. (lit. If you call again me mad, I shall eat your other eye.) Jameld (Börgeslant dialect): ---------------------------- Ex the nimen dëv' ime yeck, me tsal' meste yeyt uthit igh. (Note 'the'=thou; this dialect retains some gender features: 'igh' is neuter, hence the neuter endings on the preceding adjectives.) [If there are any native Jameld-speakers reading this, please let me know, as I must have drifted into an alternative universe.] NB: t-s ligatures now appear as just ts in emails, so "tsald" above should be read /Sald/.
