An English In Kentucky


















 Monday January 23rd 2017Tim Candler9


     Oh Dear! I'm going to have to stop using some of the words in the English Language, but on the brighter side I've had new insights into the fluidity of language, it's entirely temporal nature and how almost overnight meaning can change.



       I remember my reluctance to use "totally" and "kind of" following an interlude spent amongst a particularly obnoxious group of younger people  Henceforth, Mount Everest will be twenty nine thousand and twenty nine feet above sea level plus or minus the snow cap rather than anything like "big."
