Kinder Surprise Warning

Post by Ear of the Sphinx »

That's how I started with comparative linguistics. :-)

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/User:Palk ... toy_hazard

Image

:eng: English
Warning, read and keep:
Toy not suitable for children under 3 years.
Small parts might be swallowed or inhaled.


And my poor translation to Esperanto done in 2009:

:epo: Esperanto

Atento! Legu kaj gardu:

Code: Select all

atent-o leg -u   kaj gard-u
warn -n read-imp and guard-imp
Warning! Read and guard:

La ludilo ne estas dediĉita al infanoj pli junaj ol tri jaraj.

Code: Select all

la  lud -il  -o ne  est-as   dedicx  -it       -a   al infan-o-j  pli  jun  -a  -j  ol   tri   jar -a  -j
the play-tool-n not be -pres dedicate-past.pass-adj to child-n-pl more young-adj-pl than three year-adj-pl
The toy is not dedicated for children younger than three-year-old.

Malgrandaj partoj povas esti inhalotaj aǔ englutotaj.

Code: Select all

mal-grand-a  -j  part-o-j  pov-as   est-i inhal -ot      -a  -j  aux en-glut   -ot      -a  -j
opp-big  -adj-pl part-n-pl can-pres be -v inhale-fut.pass-adj-pl or  in-swallow-fut.pass-adj-pl
Small parts can be about to be inhaled or swallowed.

And two nooblangs made few years ago:
(no glosses as they are mixes of some Germanic words and phrases)

:con: Erhcil / Argel
Etyng! Lyst yn xavarnest:
Dette ertikol yst nye vore kends undyr 3 (tray) aer.


:con: Synix / Sunic
Wányng! Láb yn xé bvarn:
disre artkól est nèì xè kìends òndir 3 (tréj) ìaàr.
Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.

The warning is in Kazakh, Georgian, and Armenian, but not in Russian... Good job somehow avoiding the most spoken language in Eastern Europe, Ferrero :roll:

:rus:
Внимание, прочитать и сохранить:
Не для детей младше 3 (трех) лет.
Содержет мелкие части, которые могут быть проглачены или вдохнуты.

I think that's because of scanning only one side of the paper.

Yep. If you'll notice, all the languages are in alphabetical order. Russian (RU) would therefore be on the other side.

Zidhgebzhail, as it would appear in the Kinder Egg (or in any other official setting):

Or, in the vernacular:

floumidyk hEntanoezb hoedzh hUlfrren[oezb]

In either case:

Pay attention! Read and keep:

Small parts might be eaten or [might be] breathed

I like how they skip certain parts in some languages :P

:nor: (Nn)
ÅTVARING, les og tak vare på:
Leika er ikkje for born under 3 år.
Smådelar kan setja seg fast i nase eller hals.


Warning: read and take care of:
Toy-the is not for children under 3 years.
Small-parts can/may put themselves stuck in nose or throat.

I will come back and add other languages ... this one took longer than expected and I have a subway to catch!

[+1] Quick 'n' dirty Comparative Linguistics, indeed - HUZZAH :!:

Also Playmobil, LEGO instructions, food handling instructions (frozen shrimp and Icelandic IQF haddock especially had multi-lingual food-handling instructions/warnings), and trilingual/quinquelingual brochures from the Knoxville World's Fair were my first "textbooks" to those Dark Arts. [B)]
