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

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?

English has been aggregated from Arabic, French, German, Greek and so on and is now spoken as a main language by people in Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and the USA.



Because of this it is fair to say that there is not ONE English, rather there are Englishes. These Englishes have some substantial differences within and among… Continue
