I bet you thought that this post was about something else... Fred?? Pancho??
Stella and I have this disagreement about our language. She, of course, is fluent beyond all of my expectations, and I have, thanks to her, a 75-100 word vocabulary which I have been working on.
Anyway, she insists that while our language has a word for love "Hubba", that it is only a noun, and can not be used as a verb. She asserts that if a husband wanted to say "I love you" to his dear wife or vise versa (in our language), that no such phrase exists.
I, being the aramaic expert and rhetorician that I am, insisted that there was indeed such a phrase (or verb), and that I would prove it by asking family members.
I haven't asked them yet, but was wondering if any of you could make my day or crush me like a bug under a fat man's foot by answering this question... please?
It's up to you.
