Ennoying, that :
pain au lait, pin haut laid
les seins, laisse un, lait sain
m=E9taux, mes taux, mette haut, mais t=F4t
quand les gendarmes rient, toute la gendarmerie.
l'esth=E9tique tranquille, laisse tes tiques tranquilles !
la mythologie, la mite au logis
This is definitely why all my conlangs are always strictly parse-able : each=20
French sentence can be re-broken down in different words and could often be=20
ambiguous if it weren't for the stress at the end of the words warning "hey =
This one is over". I can't stand the idea that snotty brats could make fun o=
my languages. Japanese is just the same but for some reason my Japanese=20
friends don't get my witty jokes. They're just not funny people.
