Languages I speak in the order of fluency, numbered in the order of acquirement

  • Native language: Danish
  • Strong third language: English - I try to write British English but am quite fluent in US idioms and slang too.
  • Strong sixth language: Dutch
  • Passable second language: Swedish
  • Rusty fourth: German - Dutch is smack between Danish and German so I'm like "Ik ben een Berliner"
  • Rusty fifth: French - not speaking it often enough to be really fluent, but tête-à-tête I can have a conversation about more zan ze wayzer :)

comment Why is the word “so” in the line, “To a ill-informed person I would have so answer yes,” shown in Italic to stress the word?
