The Addiction of the English Language

The Magical, Mystical Addiction of the English Language

 

From C. S. Lakin's blog. This was too much to read to not share. I personally love this part:

Quote

Some words fit the definition of oxymoron. For example:

Why is abbreviated such a long word?

Why is a television set called a set when there is only one?

Why is the word phonics not spelled the way it sounds?

Why do “fat chance” and “slim chance” mean the same thing?

Enjoy it!!

C. S. is great. She used to be a member. Thought she didn't write this one. Thanks so much for this, Claire. :D
