A Bare Bodkin

by wjw on July 4, 2010

I had a recent email from the Romanian translators of The Praxis. It seems that “Sula” is a very rude word in Romanian— the literal meaning is “bodkin,” but the slang meaning is something else again. So my heroine’s Romanian name is now Caroline Sylla.

This is fine with me. When I offend foreigners, I want to do it deliberately, not by accident.
