Thanks, mav. I had the hobson-jobson from that that list but the Dick & Garlick's page was new to me. Now if I ever get to visit family in Pakistan, I can de-burgerise my speech to fit in.

I mighta made it all the way through life without knowing that there are 446 Navajo language speakers in the State of Washington. In that it is a long way from here to where the Navajo language is commonly spoken, one wonders as to the rest of this story.
