OK, I know this is neither Spanish nor slang, but it was way too cool to leave out. Euskera is a language spoken in the Basque country in northern Spain, and it’s one of the oldest languages in the world. It existed before the Romans did. I figured it would be cool for my last Splang Saturday of the old year to be about an old language. 🙂
What makes it even more special and unique is that it is the ONLY language in the world whose origins are completely unrelated to any other language. It’s a bit of a linguistic mystery!
That’s right! I learned a few words and phrases in an ancient mysterious language! And now you will, too!
Kaixo (KAI-sho) = Hello
Zer moduz? (zehr mo-DOOZ) = How are you?
Eskerrik Asko (ehs-keh-RREEK AHS-koh) = Thank You
Berri (BEH-rree) = New
I hope you all have a great and wonderful berri year!!! 🙂
