    I'm new here. Sorry if my spelling is not always corect, but English is not my motherthong. But I hope, that you all will understand what I want to write. Be free to mark and write the right spelling. This would help me:smile:
    I live in a tiny town in Switzerland, Uster.
    My job. I'm a Labrat, so allot of chemistry, smoke, strange smells and sometimes a boooom:lol:

    I'll do a proper intro in the new member's thread, but since you asked for corrections, I believe it would be "mother tongue". I'm having difficulties trying to imagine what a motherthong would look like, and which of the two clothing articles may be the child.

    LOL, motherthong... :) Don't worry, Langeneg, you are pretty clear over all.

    Thank you, I thought that mother tongue would be the right word. Or how do you say to somebody what your native language is?
  5. Buzzfloyd Spelling Bee

    Mother tongue is correct. We were laughing because a thong is this.

    Oh, ahm yes somtimes our mothers wear them too, but that was not what I meant.
    But yes I have to chuckle to(hahahahahaha)

    Oh in german you call a thong just string. But I'm fond of learnig new words.

    Let's confuse the whole issue with the Aussie version...
  9. redneck New Member

    That definitely is a motherthong.

    Strangely enough, the French call it a "string" too... Welcome to you langeneg, and thanks for the involuntary chuckle! :bunny:

    Well, actually, 'thong' means basically the same as 'string' in English too, although it would usually imply something made of a slightly tougher material, such as leather.

    Thong, according to

    Well, yeah but it's still funny to see English words misused in other languages. In fact, "thongs" in French are in fact flip-flops, as they apparently are in Aussie if I am to believe the cartoon.
