Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

English peculiar


Everyone knows that English is one screwball language, but it took a graphic you can see here to drive it home for me yesterday.

Look at how we stand against the rest of the world:

Arabic             ananas
Armenian       ananas
Danish            ananas
Dutch              ananas
Finnish           ananas
German          Ananas
Icelandic        ananas
Italian             ananas
ENGLISH      pineapple
