Linguistics

Linguistics"I didn't know you could speak Irish." Dawn found it endearing that Spike was multilingual.

"I can't."

There went that idea. "But you knew what Fuilteach meant."

Spike leant back in his chair. "You get called a bloody idiot by Angel often enough and you pick up on these things. I can swear and order beer in several languages if it's any help."

"I'm sure that skill will come in handy." Dawn mused that sometimes it was better to hold your tongue and think the best rather than have your beliefs turn out to be far less interesting in reality.
