Questions and Answers
|The phrases on this page origin all from short messages / texts (SM) of Tunisians. It is just a small selection from a big repertoire which ultimatively keeps repeating itself using the ever same thoughts and words. Mostly, the messages are sent in english or french.
It shall here not be proven how simple the language is that is used in the messages - or that that sometimes very obvious lies are transmitted, since this happens as well in other countries.
The examples of this page are given to show that the bandwidth of the phrases is, despite their richness, relatively small. Everyone who has a relation with a tunisian "bezness" man, without exception, has heard or read multiple of them already!
Every woman who thinks that it is only HER lover who only sends such messages to HER or who picks and composes HIS words so carefully and romantically might think different after she has read the below texts:
