I supposedly speak English, but I don’t think that I understand more than a handful of words in this article. The headline might as well be in Mandarin or that clicky-language of the Kalahari bushmen.
Ireland claimed the scalp of a second Test-playing nation at the World Cup as they defeated Bangladesh by 74 runs in their Super 8 encounter in Barbados.

reminds me of teaching summer school, where you had to be imaginative (imaginitive? good thing i only taught k-5!) to figure out what kids were even talking about. most of them could read by the end of summer, so we called that good, and figured someone else could teach them to make real sentences.
