Language Links

Hello! So it’s the weekend (well, here on the west coast, there is still a couple hours of it left) which means it is time for Language Links.

I’m going to be honest: I’m still working on our taxes (I want to say “chou baka taxes” which is something like “very dumb taxes,” but I don’t really know the right way to say taxes in Japanese nor do I want to bother Lee about it!), so I’m going to keep this short!

Google helps keep endangered Pakistani language alive.

Like I said, short and sweet. I guess I should say, “Sumimasen,” which is the Japanese way of saying “sorry.” Hopefully I’ll have my family’s taxes done and I’ll have more time for blogging!
