(This gave me chills when I was about 8. Either I really loved the Little Mermaid or I was a pretentious little fuck. Also, the children’s poems book this was in totally gave me a paper cut. Enjoy that 14 year grudge.)

One says “I love linguistic ambiguity more than you.” And the other runs away crying.
My dad said something really interesting today. I asked him to teach me Tagalog, and he said that he probably wouldn’t be the best at it considering the Tagalog he speaks is around 25 years old since he’s been out of the Philippines that long. Can you imagine if you moved to a country where the only people who spoke English were around your age and, like you, had not been in an English-speaking country for two and a half decades? All of your slang would be outdated. It’d be like if someone from the 80s was talking with you- understandable for the most part, but kinda strange.
Oh wow that’d be weird.
Sounds like Back to the Future or Sleepy Hollow.
I must admit the idea of sounding vaguely archaic in foreign languages really attracts me.
