Foreign athlete's feet

    Oh, if we're collecting foreign languages, it's Schwoißfiaß in my local German dialect, Swabian (Schwäbisch). Try to pronounce that :).


      How was my accent?

      Or was I supposed to pronounce "that"?

        Hey, that's quite close already! :)

    heh, not really... Not in the context that it's mostly associated with and as tye clarified - it's a common disease. So there's no "tripperi". :o)
      You're right, my bad.
      I've checked dictionary and now it is "dermatofitoz" or "mikoz"...
      Interesting enough that "athletic heart" means good health, and this is probably a trick of voting booth

      English teacher warned us about such words that act like false frends of translators.

[Eily]: wow, don't say that in Nancy LanX :P
[erix]: maybe you used the car routes, I used the walking routes
[Eily]: there's a rivalry between the two cities, so defining one in terms of the other might not be well received
[Eily]: erix well I did click on the walking icon
LanX giggles!
[LanX]: Eily I'm duing this constantly with people from rival cities ...MUCHO fun!
[Eily]: The best example of that is the TGV, they couldn't decide who would get it so it's in the middle of nowhere halfway between the two
[LanX]: Eily: that rings a bell
[erix]: interesting difference, I suppose they use different data/routes (and shorter seems better, no?)
[LanX]: Montabaur station
