An Pluiméir Ceolmhar Macaronachas / Macaronic Songs. Language mixing (117* d) RE: Macaronachas / Macaronic Songs. Language mixing 11 May 06


Yiddish poses problems because it's an inherently macaronic language itself, being German in structure with roughly one part German, one part Hebrew and one part Russian/Polish vocabulary. Does that mean we've discovered metamacaronics? ;-)

BTW, I've sometinmes wondered if Hickory dickory dock isn't a thinly-veiled reference to sex. Have I a warped mind, or just read too much Freud in my formative years?
