Most foreign language courses focus first on learning a few stock phrases and then followed by learning vocabulary (usually lots of nouns). I have often questioned the wisdom behind this practce as it seems to me "where is the bathroom?" could be answered "located in the adjacent warehouse behind the crates labelled 'machine guns' by the south wall". I mean are you really going to understand the response?
But at any rate the practice seems well established and I'm wondering what sort of phrase book Cyburbia might put together because it also occurs to me that the phrases tend to be tediously tied to things like asking where bathrooms are, asking direction to hotels and purchasing food, souvenier items and making change.
What useful phrases do you think are not found in most foreign language pamphlets that really should be?
Some of my suggestions:
"Where is the LARP convention being held?"
"Woman wilt thou lie with me?"
"Where is the nearest free clinic?"
Any other suggestions?
