Let’s Face it, English is A Crazy Language

June 13, 2012 § 4 Comments

ImageThere is no EGG in EGGPLANT, nor HAM in HAMBURGER; neither APPLE nor PINE in PINEAPPLE. ENGLISH MUFFINS weren’t invented in ENGLAND or FRENCH FRIES in FRANCE. SWEETMEATS are CANDIES while SWEETBREADS, which aren’t SWEET, are MEAT.

We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that QUICKSAND can work SLOWLY, BOXING RINGS are SQUARE and a GUINEA PIG is neither from GUINEA nor is it a PIG. « Read the rest of this entry »

Speak Better than Native? Pronounce These

Trust me, if you can pronounce these words correctly, you’ll be speaking English better than 90% of English native speakers.

It’s been so long since my last time posting on this blog. I am no longer in Egypt, so some things have changed. Finding internet connection in my country is not as easy as where I was. Here, I must go to the internet café to get connected. I may use modem to get connection directly from home but it worked too slowly. Not to mention youtube, or online newspaper; to check your email, it’d take more than 2 minutes. It seems so bad; but sometimes it’s good too. Those who’ve spent lot of time on the internet and get stuck by it, will get free by this therapy :)

Anyway, I—finally—got the network back. I intended to write this blog not because I already had an idea to be written. I just bumped into a very interesting words-play. This words-play—in a form of a poem—was written by Dutch writer, traveler and teacher, Gerrard Nolst Trenite. The title of this poem is: The Chaos. If you’re able to pronounce it correctly, you’ve got better English even than the native speakers. Wanna get chaos? Here’s The Chaos. « Read the rest of this entry »

Istiqamah

September 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

And this is not a female’s name. This is literally istiqamah that I’ve been wondering how to achieve it.
 
Here’s the topic. One of the strangest things that happens to human being—at least it’s happened to me many times—is inner struggle. Anthonny Robbins called it inner civil war. Whatever the name, the rose by any other names still smells as sweet. And inner struggle, by any other names is still a complicated problem so difficult to understand. The problem only happens inside your body. Nope, not inside your body, it just takes some small parts of your body. Inner struggle engages eather in your head or your heart. But it can take control all your bodies, more than it: your whole world!
 
Let me tell you about two different personalities based on what I got after not—so—serious research. This is what Magneto said to Xavier. Sorry for quoting X-Men dialogue, but, this is true. Magneto said, “You are idealist, Charles. And I am realist”.
 
This is it. Me, as well as any average human being in this world, have idealist concept. No matter how un-ideal a person is, he/she already had an idealism. Even the one who’s so called crusty (in England) or anti-establishment or anti-idealism (is that a real term?) they too have idealism. I laughed at my friend when he wrote down on his note: I have no rule. The only rule I have is there’s no rule. I got the point, that was his idalism: no-rule idealism.
