Cervantes would never have said it this way he would have used the vosotros form... sompin line Aqu=ED va vuestra lengua. But the "va" ... it seems too much of an Anglicism... too Spanglish... he would have used "aparecer" Aqu=ED aparece vuestra lengua. And the word lengua is still nos as common as "idioma" or "lenguaje"... Aqu=ED aparece vuestro idioma That would sound better... and to make it more modern change the vuestro to Tu or su... and aparece to "viene" or "pone" Aqu=ED se pone su idioma. How about comments from some others ??? :-))) Since, Jay B. _---_ (ojo) `\_/'
