Does it really? I only speak Texan...however I understand Yankee and English
pretty good...I think....I thought Mandaran Chineese was the most complex

While participating in the South East Asian War Games in I tried to learn
Thai...a multi-tonal language...didn't do so well...since I couldn't carry a

This fascinates me...please continue.
