Fool Proof Method

Portuguese sounds like Russian mixed with Spanish

  1. Haha, so true - the first times I heard Brazilian Portuguese (without knowing where the speakers were from), I thought it sounded like Russian baby talk with some vaguely Spanish words thrown in!

  2. Russian flag is wrong, it's actually white-blue-red, not white-red-blue.

  3. Heh. My first language was Spanglish, and I turned out all right! I wound up speaking mostly English after ~puberty, so my English vocabulary (& grammar) is far better.

  4. If the wife spoke Polish, and the husband continued to speak Russian, would the baby speak Ukrainian?

    1. If the wife spoke Arabic, and the husband were Italian, would the baby speak Maltese?

      If the wife were Dutch, and the husband were French, would the baby speak English?

      If the wife were Italian, and the husband were Russian, would the baby speak Romanian?

      Research must be done!

    2. The baby would then speak like a Greek Catholic preast, as Russian sounds very "Church Slavonic"-ky compared to Ukrainian.
