    I'll be sure to check them out, when I get the chance! Sounds interesting. :)

    Might I suggest taking the first book with you? I don't know if you've read it since, but if not... it has been 10 years... do you still know how it goes exactly? (you also might find new details or foreshadowings on what is to come.)

    It's difficult to convey the right pronuciation of the Frisian "ae" letter combo (as in "slaef") in English...
    In German however, it has the samesound as the "a" in "stahl"... so a long "aaa"-sound. But I don't doubt they are closely related in origin.

    Modern Frisian has similarities with German, English and Dutch.
    One of the most blatant similar Frisian words to Englisch, is the Frisian word for cheese (käse [kaas in Dutch - with the "aa" having the same sound as the Frisian "ae"]).

    It's "tsiis"..
    Pronuonced similar to "cheese", but with a crisper "ts", the "ii" being closer to the "ee"in "beet" and the "s" at the end more sharp (almost hissing).

    Right pronunciation has always been important.
    In the time of "Grutte Pier" (Big Pier) [Pier Gerlofs Donia ~ 1480 - 1520] the Frisians distinguished friend from foe by asking them to say a (so-called) "shibboleth". A saying that was known to most Frisians, that contained most of the verbal sounds that are/were virtually unpronouncable by non-Frisians.

    - "Bûter, brea en griene tsiis: wa't dat net sizze kin, is gjin oprjochte Fries."
    Which roughly translates to: "Butter, ryebread, and green cheese: if you can’t say that, you’re not a real Frisian."

    Incidentally, Frisian ryebread is closely related to German dark Pompernickel-bread. :)

    So far our Frisian lesson for today, my young Padawan's. :D

    But technically I’m south of Montana. I live south of Detroit and my cottage is 10 minuets away from the most southern point in Canada called “point Pelee”.
    I’m roughly the same latitude line of Northern California. Windsor is also known as the a..h.l. Of Canada. So for the vulgarity. That’s what it’s called...
