And Hostia, has never been F**k, not as far as I amconcerned anyway.
And I am not half Spanish, I am Spanish.

That would be why you didn't quite understand when I said it's *like* saying Fe*K instead of *****. I didn't compare saying the F word with saying Hostia.

Sorry for confusing your 'feet in both camps' with being half and half;-)You are clearly bilingual, but sometimes you do seem to speed read and not catch the full meaning before you answer JL

To be honest I thought **** was f**k, it was just the Irish way of saying it. Didnot know they were seperate words,.

Bloody Irish, they have no right confusing me....

No, They are used for the same word. That was my point exactly.
In the same way my mother used to say Shhhhhhh ...sugar instead of Shit, as an expletive
What I was saying (originally) is Ostra is sometimes used to avoid saying Hostia.
Hope that's clear this time!

I have never heard it said like that ostras yes, but then my lot are heathens and dyslexic ones to boot, they dont believe in DOG, so it would not bother them saying the "sacred Pringle word" at all.

So which ones are your faves?

Apparently a lot can be told about ones personality by the type of Prings they like best.

That’s the trouble with having a Spanish teacher with a Catalan bent, you get confused. I just spoke to her, politely, and she said, ‘Toma por gulo.’

I’m giving up on translation, but it sounded rude. Maybe it’s because she’s watching Eastenders.

Look H,

Lets be honest here, I am sure you will agree that Spanish isnt your thing.

No offence but if you dont know your culo from gulo, I think you should go down a different route, so to speak......

toma y daca ......................that is what your teacher was trying to say.

I think you’re wrong. My verbal Spanish is quite good although I sometimes get mixed up with Moroccan when speaking to lookie lookie men, I only get confused when I write it down.

I was talking to a Spanish gardener yesterday who had killed one of my palm trees and couldn’t think of the word for beetle, or beatle, the red ones that kill palm trees. So I called out the gran jefa to help, and for once she was stumped too, just like the poor tree.

This is for you H, I forgot to put it in my previous post, and cannot seem to edit right now.

Bonvonen al esperanto

http://www.esperanto.es/hef/index.php

A good idea in theory, but hs it causght on, has anyone on this forum ever heard it spoken?

Would it be used in meetings in Brussels?

Beatle = John, Paul, George, Ringo.

Beetle = escarabajo

.
Moroccan? Do you mean French or Arabic?

Btw, none of the "looky looky men" are Moroccan. It is very easily to tell. Moroccans have white, greyish or olive coloured skin, dark hair and North african characteristics. Which the lookie lookie men are sub-Saharan Africans with almost black skin, black wirey hair etc
