Milo Morris replied to Dave Peyton's discussion Using the phrase 'no homo' in conversation
"The point I was making by mentioning the Norwegian is that the listener's derivation is dependent on his/her perspective, not necessarily on the speaker's intent. In the example, the woman understood me clearly, the Norwegian did not."
