On a lighter note, some writers at the Norwegian show Uti Vår Hage wondered what would happen if a language collapsed. It’s quite funny – they do the standard thing along the way of mocking Danish. This video reminds me of another joke I heard recently, where the Dutch refer to Afrikaans as ‘loldutch.’ For instance, giraffe is kameelperd, meaning ‘camel leopard.’ Weird. For more examples, look at the Facebook page of people making fun of Afrikaans. It’s apparently amusing, but I don’t understand a word.
Note: There are a few swear words in the video.
