Paging Jeff Meyerson

London firm Today Translations give tourists a hand in understanding confusing Brooklynese: "Today Translations has posted an ad on craigslist seeking speakers of ''Brooklyn English,' with good knowledge of accent, slang, nuances' to help foreigners who 'find it an unexpected challenge.'

The freelance gig pays up to $210 a day. It's open to anyone who can decipher such Brooklynisms as 'not for nothin,'' 'cawfee' and 'whatayagonna do?'"
