Remember the Russian flatmate I mentioned earlier? Her English is on the whole excellent, but occasionally it trips up over words that she's never needed to know (understandably!). So the other day we were talking about relaxing music, and she told me that she has a CD of dolphin sounds. Which was briefly a bit weird, because in my experience, dolphins sound like a squeaky pair of shoes.

Me: Wait. You're sure it's a dolphin?
Her: I think so?
Me: Because I think you might mean a whale.
Her: What's the difference?
Me: Dolphins are cute and playful and smallish and sometimes murder each other. Whales are really big and we don't know much about them, except that they're tasty and useful, which is why there aren't a lot left.
Her: ...I think it might be a whale.
