I know we have a few resident polyglots, I have a big interest in etymology and philology so I am always astounded with polyglottal exchanges this one recently posted by Unilad gave me a smile

Oh wow! I hope they can record a usual conversation, like talking about usual things and not about speaking different languages. It would be interesting how the words will fit coherently.

This is actually a good point. Many of these polyglots do really well when the topic is languages, but more than likely not as well with other topics; we don't see "usual conversations" nearly as often.

True many just seem to be showing off for a few youtube follows or a chance of viral stardom, I did see a really nice polyglot household having breakfast, but I don't seem to be able to find it
