Oh Pamela, my command of foreign languages is poor. Very poor.  :oops:  :oops: Though I am fairly fluent at American, as well as English.  :lol:

But I used the word "que?" in the context of borrowing it from a very popular British comedy series called "Fawlty Towers" (about a badly run seaside hotel). The rather crazy Spanish waiter in the series was always saying "QUE?" when he didn't understand.

So.....a lighthearted "que?" to Barbara's comment, which I didn't really follow.

Hi Pamela,
HUH? is just a lazy way of saying, bitte?
Jan says the sound of 'huh' in English is the same as 'h + ö' as the sound in Köln.
Hope that makes sense.

Sorry, forgot to say, the second 'h' in huh is silent.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

......and in Limburgs, 'bidde' means pray, because they never pronounce the 'n' (bidden).

No wonder I get confused sometimes :oops:
