Inuktitut phrase book tackles language barrier for visitors

So this is what Fraser has been doing in his spare time since he moved back home with Ray--writing phrasebooks!

Ray: Well, I'll be. The Inuit really don't have three hundred words for snow.
Fraser: I've been telling you the very same thing for years (repeatedly, I may add, although to be completely honest, you were asleep during some of those times).
Ray: Fraser, stop talking in parentheses. Nobody talks in parentheses.
Fraser: Understood.

If anyone would talk in parentheses it would be Fraser.

Fraser talks in parentheses (and ellipses, and semicolons) ALL THE TIME. I heart him.

I want one, too! I swear, I want to learn every language in the world. I'm working (slowly) on Russian and French--Russian because I love the sound of it and I've always wanted to learn it, and so I can read _scally's posts without always asking her to translate. French so if I get lost in Hull yet AGAIN (this has happened twice already), I'll be able to ask directions properly. :D

Hey! As someone who talks (or posts) in parenthesis quite regularly...I resemble that remark! :-)

And yes, Fraser would totally do that in his spare time, the big nerd.

Yeah, I do that, too. Fraser talks a lot like I write. He's much more articulate when he talks, though.

(P.S. Happy Hanukkah!)

This tiny conversation has a novel's worth of perfect characterization. Go YOU.

Hehee, thanks!
Note that Ray never actually admitted that Fraser was right. Poor thing, he's learning to be (almost) as good at deflection as Fraser.

ds_northernnews needs to have another challenge. There are way too many headlines like that. :)
