    French although that's the French used in Québec, maybe the French actually have a french word for "cool"

    1. hello - allô
    2. love - amour
    3. fashion - mode
    4. cool - I guess we just say cool :P

    spinning off on a wee tangent
    i'm from the Caribbean originally, and here's a bit of our vernacular:

    smile>>>>"skin yuh teeth"
    hello>>>>"ay man" or "ay boss-man"
    love>>>>"tabanka" (that's when you're in love so much it tears your heart apart)

    2. Love: Liefde (LEAF-deh)
    3. Fashion: Mode (MO-deh), often just called fashion
    4. Cool: Cool, tof, hip

    That is: Dat is ..
    Beautiful: Mooi

    Smile: Lach (eh.. how do you explain the 'ch' or 'g'? it sounds about the same as the Spanish 'j' I think)

    hmmm to me writing jap is easy. i'm learning it now but perhaps it helps cos i have a chinese background. but to me the hardest thing is all the kanji readings.

    ok i'm tweaking the rules a little bit cos jap is not my mother tongue (which is Chinese but i suck at it so yeah). please feel free to correct me! would love to learn more!

    hello - konnichiwa (korn-knee-chi-wa)
    love - ai (eye)
    fashion - lol i'm not sure if there is actually a word in jap for this one. i think it's in katakana: fasshon
    cool - there's prob slang words for this one but the one i learnt is kakkoii (cark-core-ee)
    smile - hohoemi (hor-hor-air-me)
    music - ongaku (ong-gar-ku)

    hope the phonetics ain't too bad...:unsure:

    Bahasa indonesia and bahasa malaysia is very similar (Hi `rees, we're pretty close by!) Mostly you pronounce the word exactly as it is spelt.

    hello - helo (same)
    love - cinta (romantic love) sayang (err... "unromantic" love e.g. love b/w family and friends)
    fashion - fesyen / rekaan (designs)
    cool - no particular word for cool as far as I can remember but depending the part of the country you're in, they have slang words... sempoi for northern
    smile - senyum (the "ny" is prounounced something like the spanish ñ)
