English: I don't understand what you're saying. Speak "Saxon Speech"!("Saxon Speech" is an archaic name of Urban Basanawa, and is still used to refer Urban Basanawa occasionally, however, in the society where Urban Basanawa is spoken, it is considered to be rude to ask a person to speak Urban Basanawa)
