What the frak?

I have a tendency to cuss in nonsense, foreign words, or words in languages I’ve made up. Some of the words I say when cussing, I have even adopted as words in my constructed languages.

But lately, I’ve been noticing a real WTF kind of thing: cussing in something that sounds like Chinese or Japanese. (A bit like “Ny een ah ny ah nah” or something. I can’t really do it justice.) Since I don’t know any Chinese or Japanese or any other Asian language, it isn’t that. But it sounds like it.

Re: Cussing in Elven
Sounds like a faery or elven tongue, unto me.

It is alright, I curse in Dene a lot
Wait... "Nie nani ana"? (using Romanji here)...

That roughly means (AFAIK) "Retardation what over there"... or "Over there is inexplicitly retarded"... I likely have fucked up "nie" there as it is not part of my vocabulary.

Another variation (that'd make more sense) would be "Iie nani are"... "No, what over there" or... "shut up and be distracted" as an English equivalent (the improper grammar helps if it is any condolence).

In my case I tend to find myself cursing in a weird mixture of Dene, French, British English and displaying disdain in Japanese.

Re: It is alright, I curse in Dene a lot
To be honest, I don't know. Whenever I try to say it on purpose, it doesn't sound much like what comes out when I do it by accident. So I doubt I got it right in the post. It would be funny if true, though.

Dene... that's Navajo, isn't it?

Dene is a more proper name for either Cherokee or Chippewa... I cannot remember... as neither Cherokee or Chippewa are overly proper names for those bands. It is found in a similar area as speakers of Cree I have found.

If so, not TPNN. Possibly one of their other languages.
