Quote from: Deenfan on Fri, 2008-02-29, 11:24:46Well, you noticing the quality of my English is proof that your own is very good! To be honest, I wasn't making fun of wagners sentence. Quite the contrary, I was having a laugh at how I was thrown off completely somewhere around the word "gervais's", which isn't a word, of course, but a name. Not having heard about the fellow, I didn't recognise it as a name since it wasn't a capital G at the front. Maybe I was already stumbling from the lack of an a in there when this threw me off balance, and that's why I toppled over completely when I got to the word "Quebecois" - having never seen that before either.Far be it from me to make more fun of other than of myself. Self-irony... -that's the dog's bollocks!!!To answer your question, I'm an anglophile, and I know a lot of people over there. Also got a few friends in the US.And I think I've read a book in Norwegian probably twice the last fifteen years, whereas I've devoured probably two undred in English in the same period. It's probably sad, really...
