How many ways can you spell one word? Personally, although not British, I looooooooove spelling colour and favourite with "u"'s! <3

Anyway, back then, like great great (plus some more) grandparents had their intelligence determined by how many ways you could spell one word! :)


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Well, I can't spell these any other way. That's what I'm proud of.

Onomatopoeia

Anna (runnergurrl) | 38 comments it so confusing? WHY ARE THE E's ALWAYS SILENT? DON'T WE CARE ABOUT THEM???


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

WHAT ABOUT B'S? dumb! and subtle. I say the b in subtle, but most people say "no! it's pronounced suttle."


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

It is pronounced suttle...and lamb is a silent b too...

Oh, come on, guys. English is unique. It's the only language where some words aren't spelled like they sound. That makes it special, not hateable.

It's annoying and stupid in my opinion

Fine.

PATOIS. One of my favorite words of all time.


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

I agree Charlie. It's like: Here's a rule that ALWAYS works-oh, wait! You missed this question because you used that rule. It doesn't ALWAYS work. at least in math if there are any rules, they ALWAYS do have to be right...

Yes!

The whole e before I thing is so stupid there are so many exceptions

I'm in Spanish II of high school Spanish...you don't know how useful it is until you get in into higher level Spanish. Those little words count because you could try to say one word but say a totally different word. Just by putting more stress on a letter, such as papa which is potato and papá which is dad. Or another is when you're trying to say mom (mamá) and you call her mama (I hope this doesn't offend you, but you would be calling her a boob if you don't stress the A).
It's just like how grammar saves lives. Stressing words in Spanish saves you from embarassment.

According to everyone (you know, the general "everyone" that all teenagers understand) French gets easier while Spanish gets harder. Is that true?


message 44: by Caroline (new)

Caroline (godwithus) who knows, not me!;)

No, everyone (haha) says that French is just hard and for nerds and Spanish is easy and for losers (no offense) b/c in my school most people are Hispanic so taking Spanish is cheating


message 46: by Katheryn (new)

Katheryn | 1 comments I am a little older than most of you, I gather :-) I began to take Spanish in middle school because that was the only foreign language available, and studied that until my junior year of high school. During my junior year, I began to take French independent study as well, and took a French class during my senior year. (I graduated from high school in 1984.)

In college, I took classes in Spanish, French, a year of Russian (which I have almost entirely forgotten, except for the Cyrillic alphabet) and Portuguese. Why Portuguese, you ask? Because I was planning to become a historian specializing in 20th-century Brazil, that's why. I continued to take Portuguese classes in grad school, but had to leave grad school because I became very ill.

And by the way, I am part Hispanic (mother's side) and part French-Canadian (father's side), but my parents are fluent in English only. Though when I looked at the 1940 census when it came out earlier this month, it stated that my father's "mother tongue" was *French*. Of course, he was only two months old when the census was taken! A genealogist specializing in the French-Canadian community in the US told me that my father must have learned French before he learned English, and then forgot what he learned when he became older. What little French my father speaks, he has a very good accent -- not your stereotypical American accent.

Je parle français comme une vache chinoise, mais je peux le lire et l'écrire assez bien. Hablo español con más freqüencia que francés, pero as vezes hablo portuñol -- la mezcla de español y portugués. (I speak French like a Chinese cow, but I can read and write it rather well. I speak Spanish more often than French, but sometimes I speak "Portuñol" -- the mixture of Spanish and Portuguese.)
