Well, ARE YOU?

Spel

Have you checked out Are You? #30 yet?


Are you raving mad and somewhat slightly Dutch?

*Is Dutch*


BUT!

'Ja!  En lamprei aaltje uiteraard ik hou.' IS NOT Dutch.

It looks like it, but it's not.

Really?  I could have sworn that that's what Famke Janssen was moaning as I spanked her with the replica gladius.  Then again, the otter was squeaking rather loudly at the time and the odor of the durian fruit had left me a little woozy...

Might you be willing to offer an accurate translation?  I'd love to hear it!

'Ja!  En lamprei aaltje uiteraard ik hou. '

Should be ;

'Ja! En ik hou uiteraard van een lamprei aaltje.'
or
'Ja! En uiteraard hou ik van een lamprei aaltje.'

Okay, now I'm just curious what the English of it is.  Something about lamprey eels, but that's as far as I got.

*Grins.*

Allow me.

'Ja! En ik hou uiteraard van een lamprei aaltje.'
would translate as
'Yes! And I love a lamprey eel, ofcourse.'

'Ja! En uiteraard hou ik van een lamprei aaltje.'
would be
'Yes! And ofcourse I love a lamprey eel.'

I think the latter one is meant by the poll opener. The first is a somewhat uncommen grammer to use.
Also the latter is more strong in expression, underlining the love of the eel more then the first.

I hope that helps.

No!  That said, I cherish all peoples equally and I would completely embrace a nation of eel-molesting perverts if one happened to exist.

Thanks, Saerra!  Much appreciated.  And you got it right: "the love of the eel" is indeed the important point.

Now, how to work it into conversation?  Perhaps it could somehow follow My hovercraft is full of eels...?

Thanks again!
