  1. Hebrew
  2. Iraqui
  3. Turkish

You’ve got to be kidding. You made that up, didn’t you?

Or is it Gaelic?

Wow. It looks like an “open source” language. English speaking Americans would
probably be too lazy to learn it…

I feel very special! Thanks for all the birthday wishes from everyone,
regardless of language. Plus, I never thought I would have an ASCII art contest
dedicated to my birthday. My life is complete!

Golly. With you it could be anything.

I’ll play it lazy and guess Hebrew again…

Oooh. Now it sounds like Mandarin! That’s what I would have guessed! :slight_smile:

Means “Beam me up” right?

Either that, or you’re a super-nerd and you own a Klingon phrase book!

Not me. A team of linguists made it up. It’s Lojban. www.lojban.org

And it’s the first time in years I’ve tried composing any, so be sure to feel

I will add my two cents:

Shenri Kuaile – guess the language.

I actually misspelled it. It is Shengri Kuaile. It sound very un-Hebrew – it is
actually Mandarin.

Quch bogh jaj

for you klingons

Re: JF Birthday Wishes in 1000 Languages!!

Well, I guess literally it means it’s a “good day to be born” but it’s the
thought that counts, huh? no, no klingon dictionaries here. I’ve memorized the
language. Just kidding again. Online klingon translation service. I had to put
something here that Jack Halpern wouldn’t be able to figure out. :slight_smile: anyway, I
hope everyone wishes me this many happy birthdays on APRIL 14TH!!! Bb -----
