Foreign languages are hard

I had to look up the word counterquestion for todays comic and I'm still not sure if it is the right word but it's a weird situation where you are pretty darn good at a language and have a rather sizable vocabulary but then when a word comes around that is rather commonly used but very situational then you do notice that you aren't a native speaker. Now two little exercises for you guys out there who actually read these, try to tell me if the word counterquestion is actually correct and if it is think about any language that you speak other than english and tell me what counterquestion means in that language.



  1. I have never heard anyone use counter question before, counter point is probably the term you were looking for.

  2. 反問 there you go......
