Hello everyone

Postby Dennis » Thu 09 Jul 2009 6:55 pm

Hi everyone, I'm Dennis from the Netherlands. I'm 17 years old now, but I've been interested in languages for quite some years now. Not only that, but from next September, I'm going to study Japanese language and culture at the University.
Speak: Dutch, English
Something between reading and speaking: French, German
Read: Latin, Ancient Greek

Japanese: somewhere around JLPT 4 level (out of 5), I guess. Also, I (should) know around 250-300 kanji.

I suppose it's some wicked twist of the second part of Arabic's assalamu 3alaykum/salam 3aleykom.

What the hell? No, not anywhere near that. :/

Whalecum = Welcome

It came from the forum FPSBanana (well, that's where I got it from) as a different way to say "welcome" (which "whalecum" sounds like), and is made up of the word "whale" and a slang word for semen, "cum". ;)

:lol:

Oh, I guess that's obvious. But whale cum has three syllables and welcome has two. The vowels are different also, so I'm sorry that I didn't get that. Now that I know, if I say it aloud it sounds to me like a stereotypical southern accent. That's a gay way to say it though. lol

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. :lol:

Do you have something against gay people? O.o :evil:
