Perhaps these are part of them. I can say I am gay, straight, bisexual, or prudish. I can say ask someone if the want to hear me burp. I can explain I am rich and single or that I am a pickpocket.
And did you know animals in Germany also speak a new language? The phrasebook lets me know that ducks say quak quak (pronounced kvahk kvahk) and instead of cock-a-doodle-do roosters wake you up with 'kee-keh-ree-kee'.
