I can ask for a Diet Coke, in Dutch, now in The Netherlands, Marty

I can ask for between 1 and 11 Diet cokes infact.

The BBC are doing / have done a thing about different phrases around the UK. They might even have done accents.

absolutely. you can even have a grant title, like chief engineer in charge of recording via the medium of tape. Or CEICORVTMOP. That looks like it should mean something in Polish or something.

Really? That'd be cool. Is it that Coast programme? Or something different?

Isn't a Diet Coke just a Diet Coke here?
Or is it a Cola Light then?


Anywoh, I don't like cola.

Marty, Marty

I can ask for a certain number (up to 11) of diet cokes. That was the important bit.

i have a foolish question. y'know in the uk if you're careless with your use of the word coke, for instance "i'm dying for some coke right now" instead of "i'm dying for some coca cola right now" your words may be misinterpreted and friends may be lost and reptuations damaged and so on and so forth.

well, do other languages have that problem or is it purely a uk thing?

I don't know what it was, Fizz. I just read about it a few weeks ago.

i could manage up to ten just by using my fingers and thumbs. the eleven might be a bit of a problem though.

there's a really obvious joke here and i can't make it because i'm too embarassed.

I never say coca cola. I would just say coke. I have never had the same problem that you just mentioned. But I only ever talk about diet coke because that is all we drink at home. Everything is sugar free.

And you know you can't make the joke because you're not a man.









Glad to be of help.

In Dutch, we say Cola, so it's not a problem here
