    The text below is written in English, but in a way that is not trivial to understand. I want to see how many readers can understand it:

    Aj rajt dis tekst es it vud bi ritn in Kroejšn lengviđ baj samvan hu ken spik ingliš, bat kennot rajt ingliš. Aj vondr hau meni of ju ken andrstend it. If ju ken andrstend it, aj vud olso lajk tu nou vot iz jour nejtiv lengviđ. If ju ken andrstend it, rajt jour rispons in a similar vej.

    The mind works in interesting ways. No doubt everyone on this forum has received at least at one point that email quoting a passage used in a study to illustrate that the mind uses identifying characters in words - we can jumble the letters up but as long as the first and last letters remain the same, we can read without problem. neat.

    Ha!?

    Ovaj ^^ anglosaksonac vjerojatno pojma nema kako hrvati mogu reagirati na ovaj primjer...
    Nije baš i neka uvreda ,ali mi smo dosta primitivna plemena koji često potežu čakiju i za manje stvari.
    Nadajmo se samo da na ovom forumu ipak nema primitivnih pripadnika mojih sunarodnjaka.:devil: :smile: o:)

    I can read it, but it took me a bit to realise you were using your 'j' as a 'y'. My native language is English.

    Was Quatsch is, I believe, a fairly accurate translation of what I wrote in Norwegian.

    I write this text as it would be written in Crotian language by someone who can speak English, but cannot write English. I wonder how many of you can understand it. If you can understand it, I would also like to know what is your native language. If you can understand it, write your response in a similar way.

    Ja čak i pretpostavio da si sa balkana al' htjeh da zahebavam malo jer u niku imaš "y" (u ovim krajevima imena s tim slovom nisu baš česta :tongue2: ).
    Moje pleme je iz Zg (to ti jedno "selo" ispred medvjeđe špilje zvane Medvednica).
    BTW,odakle ti ovaj tekst?

    Iz glave. Uvijek me zanimalo zasto englezi ne pisu "po Vuku", te sam se pitao jel bi pisanje onako kako je nama logicno bilo logicno samo slavenima, ili i drugima. Posebno me zanimalo koliko bi to bio logicno onima kojima je engleski materinji.
