Mensagem:  One of my favorite language stories is about a Costa Rican girl who thought she spoke better English than she did.  We were in the home of an American friend (my friend, her neighbor). She was bragging about her boyfriend.  Proudly she told us he was very eunach.  Fred and I laughed until we turned blue!  We didn´t have the heart to correct her, to tell her the word was unique, not eunach.
