This week: Start and end your post with a two-letter word.
To the uninitiated it came as quite a surprise to learn that two letter words are not as easy to use as you might think.
Yes there are many of them, and no I haven’t counted to know exactly how many but as I use them everyday I guess there’s plenty to go round for every one to use.
We’d be lost without them I think.
For example the English language in its wisdom has bent and recreated rules for the use of some words to create meaning and absolute confusion for those trying the learn the cursed thing.
For example who decided that too and to had to exist at all. John went to the bathroom but he took along Bill too. The final too also means also…..figure that out…..too……
But we soldier on don’t we with strange words spelt the same way and meaning something completely different like the word “bow”. Think of all the different meanings this word has and then consider a non-English speaker coming to terms with that one.
Finally I’m going out soon whereupon I will put my hat on.
