Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

I wonder if the speakers of Utseech and Plattdytch would be able to communicate with each other. Maybe if they speak slowly it should work out.

uncertain, maybe. Town Speech-Plattdytch has lost all adjectival declensions and all nominal declensions except for nominal plural.

Ooops! And such an obvious mistake after I was so cautious not to blow the glossing. Or maybe I just really needed a drink after translating this to five languages.
