Questionable Thought Process

man-scratching-headHave you ever wondered how someone comes up with names of things or words that mean the opposite of what they are really meant to describe? There’s a questionable thought process involved here somewhere. If you think about it, there are quite a few examples of them in the English language. Here are a few to start you off .

There’s gotta be tons more out there – Do any more come to mind off the top of your head?

  • Why is it that we park on driveways and drive on parkways?
  • Why is it that freight packages sent on trucks are called shipments and freight packages sent on ships are called cargo?
  • Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
  • Why is the man who invests all of your money called a broker?
  • When the stars are out they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.
  • Who tastes dog food when it says ‘new & improved’ flavor on the label?
  • If lawyers can be disbarred and clergymen can be defrocked, doesn’t it make sense that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked and dry cleaners depressed?

Here are a few more to ponder that I came across recently…..

  • Why is it that if someone tells you that there are 1 billion stars in the universe you will believe them, but if they tell you that the bench has wet paint you will have to touch it to be sure?
  • If people from Poland are called “Poles,” why aren’t people from Holland called “Holes?”
  • The shortest sentence in the English language is reportedly, “I am” . So isn’t it possible that “I Do” might be considered the longest sentence?
  • When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?

8 Common Grammar & Spelling Mistakes

Just a quick post here this time. Below you will find 8 simple yet very common grammar and/or spelling mistakes that many of us make when writing or typing on a somewhat frequent basis. See if any of these apply to you…..

(1) – YOU’RE and YOUR

If you are not sure when to use which word, you are not alone. This is one of the most common mistakes made by many folks.

The difference is actually quite simple…..

* You’re – is used as a substitute or contraction (shorter form) for the words “you are”

* Your – is used when referring to something that belongs to the person that you are speaking to.

(2) – IT’S and ITS

* It’s (with an apostrophe) – replaces “It is” or “It has.” (It’s easy to remember!)

* Its (with no apostrophe) – refers to something that belongs to “it.” (Its meaning is clear!)

(3) – THEY’RE, THEIR, and THERE

* They’re – is short for “They are.”

* Their – refers to something that belongs to “them.”

* There – is simply “not here.”

(4) – TO and TOO

* When you mean “overly,” add the extra O.

(5) – LOOSE and LOSE

* Lose – When what you want to say is the “opposite of find” — then lose the extra O.

* Loose – is the “opposite of tight”.

(6) – IRREGARDLESS

Tons of people use this word but the truth is — it doesn’t exist!

The real word is regardless.

(7) – ALOT

Anyone who thinks this is a word is mistaken (wrong).

If you’ve ever written this word, what you probably meant to say was either a lot (meaning “many”) or allot (to ration or allocate).

(8) – AHOLD

That word should actually be split in two.

It should actually be — “a hold.

Amusing Oxymorons

Definition of Oxymoron

Oxymorons are literary figures of speech usually composed of a pair of neighboring contradictory words (often within a sentence). A simpler way of saying this is … An oxymoron is a combination of words that contradict each other. However, this is not always the case. Webster’s Dictionary defines oxymoron as “a combination of contradictory or incongruous words”.

jumbo_shrimp

"jumbo shrimp"

Oxymorons can be used for dramatic effect, such as crash landing and deafening silence. They can also be amusing or comical, such as in criminal justice. Clearly this is not an oxymoron in the true and strict sense, but the suggestion that it is oxymoronic is humorous.

Perhaps the most well-known of all oxymorons is Jumbo Shrimp, at least in the United States. Now in the UK, a Jumbo Shrimp is better known as a King Prawn.

___________________________________________________________________________

Take a good look at the paragraph below – –  Notice anything strange about it?

It makes some sort of sense — but it is loaded with contradictions as well.

These are called oxymorons.

Now read the paragraph that follows.

Have you ever noticed that it’s simply impossible to find seriously funny oxymorons online? The only choice is to ask one of those paid volunteers at the library – the ones in the long-sleeved T-shirts – for an original copy of some obviously obscure documents that were found missing amongst some paperwork almost exactly one hundred years ago.
