An amusing story, and I like the word ilunga assuming it has been correctly rendered and translated, which may be a rash assumption.
The world's most difficult word to translate has been identified as "ilunga" ... posted by Sally 10: 17 PM | who are the recipients of this year's presidential medal of freedom, alex?
Faithful correspondent Andrew Krug sent me a link to a BBC story by Oliver Conway claiming that:The world's most difficult word to translate has been identified as "ilunga" from the Tshiluba language spoken in south-eastern DR Congo.
But i've never indulged in selathirupavar, and so, shaddup, pochemuchka. i mean, i am an ilunga, but don't push it.
The hardest word is ilunga, from the Congo, meaning “a person who is ready to forgive any abuse for the first time, to tolerate it a second time, but never a third time.”
BIG gamble, but I'm right behind Zola and clarke and nani on this one, after Behrami and ilunga.
Hopefully things will turn round for you quickly, I would much prefer you coming to WHL rather than teams like Swansea & Norwich, no offence meant to those 2 teams but WH are a bigger team and the atmosphere when we play you is always a ripper! i though tomkins, taylor and piq played well, ilunga pumped the long ball way too much, but overall, not too bad a display and if you had scored early, would have been different game, but obviously not scoring is an issue. think over 40-odd games you will be fine.
