Multi-lingual lovin’

What is he trying to say when he sends me dead roses?  It’s off topic, never mind.  Forget it.  This is about you.

Can’t say “I love you: in plain English? You big blimmin commitment-phobes. Well, try it foreign-loike, it might help you stutter it out this V Day. 

Those show off Frenchies even have two ways of saying le lovey dovey stuff and if you speak it in Icelandic, you get to say the word ‘pig’.

Afghani: Dus tat darem

Cantonese: Ngo oi lei

Dutch: Ik hou van jou

Filipino: Mahal kita

French: Je t’aime/je t’adore

Icelandic: Eg elska pig

Latin: Ego te amo

Maori: Ka nui taku aroha mauu

Punjabi: Main tuhanoo pyar kar da haan

Tongan: Ofa atu

Turkish: Seni seviyorum

Zulu: Ngiyakuthanda

Visit Valentines to read of more love in other languages.

And it’s not too late to send an e-card.  Greenpeace’s Mr Splashy Pants sings your personalised whale love song in the style of Barry White, but it is actual whale wailing with translation in English … it so rocks!
