A language hint
Authored by: fmen on Nov 15, '07 01:59:56AM

Definitively off topic, but a bit of a language hint:

You used the word: Viola! Is this an english word? As my first language is french, it looks to me like a french word. But I do think that you meant: VoilĂ !

VoilĂ  is the french word to say: there it is

Viola has a very different meaning, it's actually a conjugated verb. It can come, for example, from the phrase: Il la viola. That means: he raped her.

Be careful that exchanging two letters lead to a very different meaning... And that's an error that I see quite a lot of time on english sites.

I was thinking about commenting on this too, as I also see it quite often. In English, a viola is a member of the violin family. eg: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viola
