Subject: 16.1657 Italian Translations of Shakespeare
Comment: 	Re: SHK 16.1657 Italian Translations of Shakespeare

Thanks for the definition -- but now I have to ask: what is Marmite ? I 
have seen the term in hundreds of British thriller and detective novels, 
and in many modern British novels, but I have never been able to figure 
out what it is, nor have I seen it in a grocery store (I assume it is 
something to eat),

And is it pronounced 'mar-might' or 'mar-meet'', and which syllable gets 
the stress ?

 >Twiglet: what the English truly prefer to fill the pretzel-spaped 
snack-space.

Looks like a twig, tastes of Marmite (qv)
