Linguistics

"esho-nessemasta!", said the secretary to me minutes ago.

I thought she was speaking Japanese (say the thing out loud, stressing the vowels in boldface; see?). I dumbly asked 'who?' She burst out laughing. She is an Outposter, so she couldn't be speaking Japanese to me, anyway.

Tsk, tsk, tsk.

How very inappropriate!
