All the English You Will Ever Need

The English language is constantly evolving, both the words we use and the rules that control the usage of those words.  Therefore, it is impossible to ever have a definitive grammar guide, or, if you will, a Complete Guide of American English.  And that’s our excuse.

 

 

Word of the Every So Often

December 14, 2018 

albedo:  (noun)  the light reflected off a surface, usually that of a planet or moon, measured on a scale of zero to one, zero being completely non-reflective (such as black), and one being completely reflective (such as a mirror).  Sir, we're going to have to ask you to put on your hat.  The albedo off of your head is disturbing the other fans.

Birds

It’s a conspiracy!  That’s what it is.  Floyd wants you to blindly follow him South.  Have any of you asked why?  No.  But yet, you’re willing to follow him just the same.  Who elected him the leader of the flock?  You may have voted for Floyd, but I didn’t.

How do we know that it gets cold in the winter?  How do we know there’s nothing to eat?  Nobody’s ever stayed to find out, and that’s just the way he wants it.  Isn’t it, Floyd?  You know what I think?  I think there’s plenty of food here – all year long.  And Floyd doesn’t want us to have it.  He wants it all for himself.  Go ahead and ask him.  Like he’s going to tell you the truth.

Well, I’m staying.  You all can do what you want, but I’m staying right here.  All winter long.
