Sometimes, they are hilarious and other times, just plain irritating. I admit, before you point the finger at me, that I am the last person with perfect Catalan accent – but let’s push that aside for just a little bit and have a good laugh at Albert – no, no, I mean, at some random Catalan person.
‘I’m a bee gus.’ He said, looking pleased with himself.
‘What?’ (I forgo the correct ‘pardon’ when speaking with Albert. He responds faster to a more direct language.)
‘I’m a bee gus. You know, you can’t pin me down. I might, and I might not.’
I hit my head on the table and muttered to myself ‘Ambiguous.’
‘Yes, am bee gus.’
I guess the most irritating problem is the G that is placed at the front of W’s for some reason. The people say ‘gwhat’, instead of what. I totally accept the heavy h’s, and I understand missing the final letter of words like ‘tent’, but my ears have a problem with the Gwat. I even accept the Alvert Bila B/V mix ups. But the Gwat… is a hard one.I must admit I have trouble saying just about everything in Catalan, so you can laugh at me as much as you want.
