Being the language lovers that we are... A place to talk about, or write in languages other than Spanish and English.

To me, porridge is a dish made of ground, cooked grain (oats, wheat etc.)

Yep, but that was the closest translation I could come up with. In Danish it is "grød," and is used both for porridge, in the way you mentioned, and for the berries and alike, like in the picture. The berries are also cooked.

Ok. I think I would call that cooked fruit or stewed fruit.

Ja, det er det! Det er en fælles nordtysk-skandinavisk specialitet.

Yes, it is! It's a shared North German-Scandinavian specialty.

David, I know your German is a lot better than mine, but I noticed when you wrote a number in a previous post in this thread you wrote it as three words instead of vierundzwanzig or whatever number it was.
Have a nice Sunday.
24, vierundzwanzig in German. This structure Is alo used in Dutch and in the Scandinavian tongues. It can still sometimes be found in English.

There is an old English children's song:

Sing a song of sixpence, a pocketful of rye
Four and Twenty Blackbirds baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened the bird began to sing
Wasn't that a dainty dish to put before the King?

In England, particularly near where I live, people will use this construction in time expressionsuch as "Five and twenty past seven" for Seven Twenty five - 7:25
