Especially when you were talking about her

I speak Idiomatic American, passable English, and can stumble through Australian.
I am fluent in several seperate dialects of American as well, including Trucker, Construction(both of which appear similar but evolved from different root dialects), Redneck, and a little Hip-Hop.

I can also rouse people to attempt assault in at least five languages

English and some high school Spanish for me. My sister is fluent in Russian, and pretty good at Spanish. She also has some exposure to German, Polish, Check, and Norweigan. She'* taught Russian and Spanish at the jr high and high school level.

I guess I fall into gibberish on this one.

Don't remember much spanish from highscool although it comes back to me after an hour or so of watching the spanish channel(Only thing funnier than midgets is midgets in spanish). I remeber the basics like how to ask for a beer, bathroom, or where my truck is..........

Remember a little bit of Polish from my grandmother, but most of what I remember is curses.

Had a girlfriend who had a deaf uncle so I know a little american sign language but all I remember is ...............


and I'm fluent in trekkie from my geek days, although I never quite masterred klingon

I can translate some Latin (been a while since I studied it) and speak Latin the right way, can speak some Hindu, Polish, and can undertand some Italian. I am not fluent in those by ANY stretch of the imagination.
