Tuttuquante Ponno Scrivere 

I was unaware that there is a version of Wikipedia in Neapolitan dialect.

I was a little surprised to discover that буагага [buagaga] is used by Russian bloggers and commentators in the sense of “bwa-ha-ha”.

I was unaware that someone had already written this beautiful sentence:

“The dog which helped to catch me had a special medal for catching over 100 prisoners.”
—Prisoner of war “G.E.J.” of Princess Patricia's Light Infantry, describing his recapture after an escape attempt in 1918, in a letter reprinted in Nova Scotia Red Cross During the Great War, Halifax, [1919?], p. 44.
