* * 0_o * * "technical German is slooooow reading" AiYaH!!! no bleedin' joke! I have a photocopy of Herr Doktor Walter Bisang's _Das Chinesische Pidgin-Englisch: Ein Bilinguales Pidgin im Spannungsfeld von Superstrat, Substrat und Eigener Kreativitat_ (Amsterdam Asia Studies, No. 58, 1985). I have had it since 18.05.2000 & I am still - off & on - trying to not only get my monkeybrains around the syntax but also the unfamiliar, overly specialized vocabulary. And it appears that I have lost my German-English dictionary somewhere betwixt rehab and recovery... odd that I have my Spanish and Italian and pidgin phrasebbooks, etc. but lost my prized German-English dictionary... ::whimper:: o_0? czHANg
