I don't know why I feel the need tp share this with everyone. My father was based in Korea for a while when he was in the Nat'l Guard. He tried learning the language and once accidentally ended up telling people (translated), "Your nephew is eating my lawn."

Tu sobrino esta comiendo mi cesped.

If anyone wants to translate it into other languages, well, I could collect them and he'd get a kick out of seeing them all.

Malay:

Cucu anda sedang makan taman saya!

I really can't think of the word for "lawn" if there is one, so taman is an approximation - park, field or something similar.

Chinese (I could be severely mistaken about this one :P):

Ni de zhi zi zai chi wo de tsao ping

rumput is grass in indonesian but I don't know if you use that word in malay... its a really bad idea to try learning both those languages, I'm never quite sure which one I'm using....

Portuguese:

Teu sobrinho esta comendo o meu jardin.

does garden count?

that's how i'd write it out. how'd i say it with my good ol' minas accent would be:

O seu sobrinho ta comendo minha grama!

WAIT! haha i remember grass. Grama.. but i'm sure the spelling is wrong.

Ya, rumput is grass in Malay but I was going for something more "cultivated". :P

I totally know what you mean about being confused between the two...so similar but not!

Thank you so much, guys, this is awesome. It's already enough to make him smile on Father's Day, but keep 'em coming if you have more.

in Tagalog: Kinakain ng iyong pamangkin na lalaki ang aking damuhan.

in Ilonggo (dialect in Phils): Gina-kaon sang imo hi-nablus nga lalaki ang akon nga hilamnan.

not sure if that's exactly right.. i'm a little rusty

AHH the incorrect grammer!

that's "Your nephew eats my grass." You need the conjugated "estar" to make it "IS eating." :-P
