familiar dialogues

Ach, mein Gott, English as She is Spoke (via Geegaw) was published in 1883 by a Portuguese man who only had a French dictionary. This is one of those special links, truly a pleasure rare. The word lists tend to reveal hidden connections after contemplation, like Zen koans:

Parties a Town.
 
The butchery      The low eating house
The cause-way     The obelis-ks
The sink        The prison, geol
 
On the church.
 
The sides of the nef    The little cellar
The holywater-pot   The boby of the church
 
Chastisements.
 
A fine        To break upon
Honourable fine    To tear off the flesh
    To draw to four horses.

And there is real pathos in this short dialogue about the weather.

We shall have a fine weather to day.
There is some foggy.
I fear of the thunderbolt.
The sun rise on.
The sun lie down.
It is light moon's.
