I like languages and I like the Bible. This is something I found interesting and I can't help but giggle. I knew someone who spoke Papua New Guinea Pidgin.

"No go talk pilau kine stuff notting. But weneva you talk, say good kine stuff dat goin help da peopo dat lissen, an make um come mo strong inside. Cuz dey need fo hear da kine stuff dat goin do good fo um."~ Fo Da Efesus Peopo 4:29

(now to compare with English)

"Let a rotten saying not proceed out of YOUR mouth, but whatever saying is good for building up as the need may be, that it may impart what is favorable to the hearers." ~Ephesians 4:29
