: I'm interested in information on the origins and meaning of this phrase. Have noticed it used in literature, (ie: _The Handmaid's Tale_)usually translated into what is supposedly L****, but have also noticed that there is quite a variance in the L**** text. The correct L**** or any other help is appreciated.

Type "carborundum" in the search box on the main Discussion Forum page to see previous discussions.

(Please excuse my alteration of your query. This forum has been overwhelmed by requests for L. translations, which aren't its purpose. The more posts contain the name of that language near "translate" or "translation," the more people will come here for that service, sent by search engines.)
