I’m not sure how to wrap my mind around it. Is this someone’s cool and quirky hobby? The product of someone who is just so very grateful? The result of an odd obsession? It’s actually the brainchild of one Jennifer Runner, who collects how to say things in many many languages.
Among other handy phrases, you can learn how to say “please” in more than 270 languages, “welcome” in more than 325 languages, and apropos for today: “Thank you” in over 500 languages. So if you’re looking for a novel way to say “thanks” today–visit Jennifer’s Language Page and express your appreciation anyway from Abenaki (Wliwni ni) to Zulu (Siyabonga).
Vinaka vakalevu, Jennifer!
