    Yup, same thing in Indonesian, 'bahasa' means language, but since we say Bahasa Indonesia (= Indonesian Language), lots of people think that 'Bahasa' is the actual name for the language. The language itself is supposed to be just Indonesian.

    Bigdesign, how'd you learn the language?

    Gentlemen, where is the poll?

    (in alphabetical order): Low & Modern Russian (it's a non-rhyming slang comprised of vulgarisms, euphemisms (sort of substitution) and anglicisms, a hundred of terms or maybe more), Russian (proper spelling & writing), Ukranian (basic), US-English (but i can also simulate English English accent a bit, really because i has been living in Liverpool and London for quite a long time )

    Off Topic:

    - Barney: Hey, Homer, you're late for English!
    - Homer: Pffft, English. Who needs that? I'm never going to England!
