Re: When can you say you speak a language?

Dear MC, I'm very puzzled... does that mean you mix up NAE and BrE swearwords or something? Actually I could see how an American might be confused if you use BrE vocabulary, I keep forgetting they're not totally confused like us Canadians who don't know what we speak or how to spell...

Yeah, they even had to get their own version of Antiques Roadshow for heaven's sake!

Or does your accent change?
Actually, it's more accent, intonation, ocassional words...Lancashire and Cockney are hard to shake, haha. If I have no control, it's pretty much BrE, otherwise NAE. The actual swear words of each are inserted for my own enjoyment, with the ocassional abuuuuuuut and eh, to make myself laugh.

Now when there is a real need to swear, it's kurvadrat or jezisimarja.
