He he, when I call my fiance by his name: _Jan_, at the same time I'm calling him "love": _yan_ in my language Chasmäöcho. Of course, I'm cheating a little, since I invented the word for love in Chasmäöcho according to his first name. :)

I wish I could swear in one of my conlangs. Well, for about one year now, I often swear in English when speaking French (but this is only for one-word swears. As soon as I want to be lengthy in my swearing, I switch back to French. It has so much more choice :) ). On the other hand, I tend to swear in French when talking English :) . And sometimes, Dutch curse-words sneak in for no reason I can explain (especially the expression "cut weer" when it begins to rain while I'm outside :)) ). Christophe.
