16.4a English interspersed with foreign or corrupted foreign words.

When transcribing dialect that is a hybrid of English and some foreign language, those italicized sentences or phrases that are purely foreign are brailled uncontracted. When unitalicized foreign or corrupted foreign words are interspersed with English, these words are treated as dialect and contractions are used. (See §12.7b(3)) Example:

"Rink the bell, Hans. I vant Ernst und Konrad, now—zupper is ready."

"Ja, Mutter."

"Hurry now. Das ist gut."
