Most of us know some people are bilingual. In addition to normal English they can speak:

Officialese
Academese
Vulgarese
Syncategorematese...

and such strange languages.

Are there more?
d'oh! Whistle

Wow, those are too hard for me.
Legalese is a popular one. Teacherese is endangered, but struggling on. I am a reluctant learner.

You might be speaking childese as well, JJ.

If language is to communicate the thoughts, actionese is what everyone should be perfect at.

Though I'm rubbish at technese, I'm pretty fluent in dramatese now I come to think of it.

Good one, Towan. We used to play canasta, Drago. Shanghai rummy for dimes, penny ante poker, and cribbage too. (Our friends who liked to play cards have all died. :( It's what happens.)

Wow JJ I was curious about your title word so I put it in Google, this post came up as the second result on the first page! Congradulations!Dancing

Further down the page I found a link to a marketing group, http://brandergy.com/group/languagese that had this list.

I don't have a Twitter account but, I'm almost tempted to get one to find out what is at some of these @'s.
