"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."

Hi, Gents!

 

Unfortunately, I have quite a few demands on my time, so one of the ways in which I at least try to be efficient is to limit myself to just one blog. As a result, I don't expect to be posting anything else here. However, I do have another blog that I plan to keep active, so you can generally peek into what's on my mind by going there:…
