I was just being silly. Varför inte på svenska=why not in swedish - a plug
for my mother tongue.

Greek-German (born and raised in Europe) to complicate things:-)
Because Stan's message was in Spanish. The article in question was about
Hispanics, and I think Stan assumed I wrote it and therefore wrote to me in
Spanish.

Best,
Alkistis

PS: What does "Varfør inte på svenska?" mean?

ÿþ Hola, Just to clarify this, since the message belownbsp;was sentnbsp;to
the list. I recently forwarded an article that appeared in the Chronicle of
Higher Education to the language policy list; the article ("Beware the
language police") was written by Will H. Corral,nbsp;not myself. nbsp; nbsp;
Best, Alkistis nbsp; PS:nbsp;Si, Alkistis es un nombre griego. Más en otro
mensaje. nbsp; nbsp; ----- Original Message ----- From: Stan amp; Sandy

Alkistis?nbsp; nbsp; Me interesó bastante lo que escribistes, y tienes
razón.nbsp; La diversidad es tan bonita, y devemos celebrarla.nbsp; Pero es
dificil preservar la diversidad sin esteriotipos, no? nbsp; Vivo
ennbsp;Brasil, que no tienenbsp;la diversidad que existe in los EEUU.nbsp;
No sé exactamente porque, pero me parece que tiene algo que ver con
elnbsp;pueblo brasilero, que es más "gente de mano abierta" que los
estadounidenses - menos aferrada a los esteriotipos. nbsp; No se si te
acuerdas de mí.nbsp; Soy el que escribió esa frase, "Montreal es la ciudad
más divertida de Canadá".nbsp; Conosco bastantes ecuatorianos, pero nunca
conocí una Alkistis.nbsp; Me interesa tu nombre.nbsp; De donde viene?nbsp;
Suponía que eras de la comunidade griega de Montreal. nbsp; Chau, nbsp; Stan
