With words like homo, fartas, bona, sxatas, and now dek? This language was made so English speakers couldn't speak it with a straight face confirmed.

Many languages might sound funny or even offensive for non speakers.

My daughter when she was in preschool had a Polish friend there (they later went into different schools, so lost contact). My daughter did speak a tiny bit of English and her main language was Russian. The other girl did speak a little bit of English and her main language was Polish.

So the reason why they spend so much time together, as my daughter later told me, is because for both of them the other friend's native language sounded funny, so they were spending hours speaking Polish/Russian mix and just laughing at how it sounds.

P.S. right now my daughter knows English better than her first language.

That should be "plus" and not "and." Five and five is five. Five plus five is ten.
