What in the world is an onomatopoeia?

Started this discussion. Last reply by mister green solide 1 Jan 11. 4 Replies

It sounds like a medical term, or the name of a South African cactus plant, but it describes words in English whose spoken sound is the same as the actual sound. For example, the words "buzz", "hum",…Continue

Different Ways to Write the Date

Posted on March 29, 2015 at 7:20 7 Comments

Sometimes when I interact with US sites I'm confused by what date is being referred to. 

The USA has a habit of placing the month before the day so that 4/3 is April 3rd. But in Australia and almost everywhere else in the world I have travelled, the month is written before the day eg, 3/4 or 3rd April. Thus, I'm never sure whether the date is 4th March or 3rd April in US format.

This is only a problem of course when one of the numerals is less…

English is Not Only English

Posted on December 26, 2014 at 7:50 3 Comments

Hey, that sounds a bit odd ... English is not only English. What does that mean?

You see, English is a combination of numerous other languages, even some Arabic. By having an understanding of Latin and Greek roots, it is easier to work out what English words are similar and…
