Common Abbreviations in English

2021-03-07T23:22:01+01:00

In this busy day and age (current time), there are so many expectations on our time and so many (more) things we want to do, that we take shortcuts (use a shorter/easier way) all over the place. Think about it: emails are getting shorter, text messages are bare bones (almost nothing), and sending a picture is faster than explaining a situation sometimes.

Latin Words Used in English

2021-02-17T18:29:30+01:00

I was the worst Latin student of all time (ever). I took one year of Latin when I was in 7th grade, hoping it would help me later in college when I studied English. It might have benefited (helped) me more, however, if I had decided to go into the medical field, but I still think it's fun to find Latin words used in English and try to remember what they mean.

After the American Revolution and the two countries started to diverge (separate), Americans started doing some things differently from the English in an attempt to differentiate themselves. This is why the Americans, as an example, use their forks the way they do with the tines (the pointy parts of a fork) up, and not [...]

2021-01-17T14:21:34+01:00

As we all know, English is a great "catch all" language in that it is one big mish-mash of other languages, and boy oh boy, does English love taking words from French! We've already written about German loan words here and here, and last week about Yiddish.  But what about French words used in English? About 45% of English words have a French origin. 29% of those words are directly stolen from French. (This is the same percentage of words in English with Latin origin). Suffice it to say (it is sure that), French is one of the biggest influencers [...]
