James Harbeck, who writes the excellent Sesquiotica blog, has an article at The Week , "The strange Scandinavian pronunciation of common English words. " The title is a joke, because the common English words mentioned are all of Scandinavian origin. We say sauna v ery differently than the Finns do. A reader named Julia posted an irate comment: What a strange, Anglo-centric article! You're talking about words that English BORROWED from those other languages you mention and then call the ORIGINAL pronounciation 'weird'.

Warsaw lay inert under Nazi German occupation in the early summer of 1944. Further east, German armies collapsed and Soviet forces rolled forward. The first Russian tanks reached Polish soil in January. The underground Polish Home Army lay low, awaiting the moment to rise. While the Allies jointly fought Adolf Hitler's Germany, they tugged over Poland's fate.The half-century anniversary of joy at the liberation of Paris on Aug. 25 was inextricably a reminder of the simultaneous agony of Warsaw, and the heroic rising that was willfully let fail.

Warsaw. -- A busy day. Morning appointments. The year's final Cub Scout meeting at midday. Kids to be driven 150 miles to summer camp. An article to finish in the evening.A busy day. Not frantic. Not suicidal. Just working mother busy.The housekeeper starts it badly by coming an hour and a half late. "And if your mother says one word to me," she tells the children angrily, "I'll walk out."That's East Bloc egalitarianism. She says her bus filled up with smoke, and long use, poor maintenance and empty coffers at the Transport Ministry lend her story credibility.

WARSAW, Va. - Charles Lewis is the Warsaw fish whistler, but to the catfish in his creek, he needs no introduction. They are jumping out of the water by the dozens, striking their best "Flipper" poses and swimming about in a splashy display of rubbery lips and whiskers. Lewis blows another long blast on his orange dog whistle, and the surface of the tidal creek erupts again as he steps out on his dock and casts a handful of fish food pellets into the fray. The catfish gulp and guzzle the floating pellets, vacuuming them off the surface while the ghostly forms of other catfish flash in and out of sight in the depths.

When I first arrived in Warsaw in the summer of 1990, the Poles on board the Lot Polish Airlines clapped as the aircraft touched down near the warehouse-like structure that was the Polish capital's international airport. The Poles on the Lot flight I took to Warsaw in October also clapped when we landed, a sign to me that in some ways, despite major political and economic shifts in recent years, Poland might not be such a different place after all. But as soon as I stepped into Warsaw's much modernized Port Lotniczy im. F. Chopina -- named for Polish composer Frederic Chopin, whose heart is entombed in a downtown church -- I knew that Poland had indeed changed.

In the summer of 2004, I was making my way from St. Petersburg, Russia, to Istanbul, Turkey, by bus and train. Traveling through Eastern Europe is an amazing experience. Everywhere you go, you are surrounded by evidence of ancient buildings and cultures. An unexpected destination during my travels was the graveyards across the region. The European style of caring for graveyards is to visit them frequently and adorn the graves with fresh flowers. In many ways, graveyards are beautiful, with engravings speaking of what the dearly departed meant to the family they left behind.

On Sept. 1, 1939, Jerzy Kajetanski, a 25-year-old graduate student at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, was returning home by bus from a stay in the resort town of Swider when he suddenly came upon a bloodcurdling sight. "I saw a bombed-out house and a dead white horse in the roadway," Kajetanski later wrote in his journal. "That horse was the first casualty of war that I was to see." Hitler's armies had invaded Poland, an act that would unleash the most destructive conflict in history.
