«It is a pity you do not understand either ancient or modern Greek, both of which Haidee speaks so fluently; the poor child will be obliged to talk to you in Italian, which will give you but a very false idea of her powers of conversation.»
«The Count of Monte Cristo» by Alexandre Dumas
Ah, screw it. My English accent is atrocious at the moment (even I have trouble understanding myself), but here’s the English version of a presentation on scientific writing. In the language of science — «broken English» (I hope, I haven’t listened to it yet).
