  • Message In English To French People
    351 words
    There are many factors that one should take into consideration when sending messages internationally. To start, languages are not the same and the cultures vary from one another.

  • Words

    English, and perhaps every other language, has systematic arrangements for deictic words, which shows again that that these words have meanings that can be divided into smaller pieces that we can call 'sy mantic atoms' (provided that they do not need to be further divided). Superficially, the systems of English, Spanish and Japanese are rather different, which is one reason why we can seldom translate them word for word. Nevertheless, when we look closely at the sy mantic elements underlying the...
  • Most Annoying Words In The Language
    672 words
    There is a nutria loose in the Enl gish language and it is rapidly devouring words and phrases. The corrosive usage of slang is deteriorating proper, or standard forms of English. What most consider to be a passing fad has been evident for as long as the English language. Change in the grammar and diction of a language is natural, and English is always confronted with changes.

  • Word Mother
    660 words

Only if we make a mistake and we have to correct it or we have difficulty remembering a word we become conscious of ...

  • Coda Position At Word
    1,528 words
    The first question about this topic would be: Why would a word-final consonant have to be syllabified in an onset, and not in a normal post-nuclear complement (Coda) position. After all, we have this position in word internally, and this Coda is so important as it differs some languages to others called "CV languages". First of all, Coda is an old term, back to the time that all consonants which occur after a nucleus could be simply attached to the rhyme in the form: (1), where C could even acco...
