Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in
nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English
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
slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from
Guinea nor
is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers
don't groce
and hammers don't ham?

Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man
and a
wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your
can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling
it out
and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the
creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all.
is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights
out, they are invisible.

PS. - Why doesn't "Buick" rhyme with "quick"?

You lovers of the English language might enjoy this .

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any
two-letter word, and that is "UP."

It's easy to understand UP , meaning toward the sky or at the top of
list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP ? At a
why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers
UP for
election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report ?

We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish
UP the
silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP
house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little
word has
real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets,
work UP
an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing but to
dressed UP is special.

And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is
UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP! To be knowledgeable about the
proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized
dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to
thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a
list of
the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if
don't give UP , you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it
threatens to
rain, we say it is clouding UP . When the sun comes out we say it is
clearing UP .

When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP .

When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP .

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP , for now my time is UP,
so......... Time to shut UP.....!
