Re: Outright Barbarous: How the Violent Language of the Right Poisons American Democracy-J Feldmann

Let me start by saying that I have not read all of Jeffrey Feldmann's new book Outright Barbarous: How the Violent Language of the Right Poisons American Democracy (Ig Publishing, 2008), but I did read the excerpt below and thought it made some excellent points. The excellent point being: the disto...

Re: Hello Hullo allò

My prodigious daughter's first words were "Hey Bub". Make every effort to be there when the little guy discovers responsive verbal communication. It is a momentous occasion. I recognized that moment with a friend's baby at a picnic....he and I exchanged "raspberries" several times....I could watch h...

If I were ask someone: "Hey, dude, could you help me?" would he beat my head?
If you are not familiar enough to know the answer to this question, why risk getting your head beat?

Re: Far further than you could possibly imagine

I think you've come to the best possible place. A Brasilian buddy learned English strictly from "country" music, you mean what I say? You would do better to ask your questions one sentence at a time, as far as responses go. (With your invaluable help I'm going to sound like a native speaker of Engli...

Re: Far further than you could possibly imagine

Stanislav, what do you refer to as "this"? If it is the post just above yours, I can certainly explain. If "this" refers to your last large post, certainly someone with loads of time can help.

Re: I won't budge

Sounds like an eggcorn to me. Budging, as I see it, is 'giving an inch'. Incredulity at the apparent lack of conscience of a 'butter' causes most of us not to want to budge, in the hope that the violation of personal space might break through the butter's selfish oblivion. This never works, though, ...

Re: Truly Artificial Intelligence

I am undecided as to whether dalehileman or gdwdwrkr is the chatterbot in this thread. Maybe even both of them are... Erik could go ask Alice. She'll be enthralled. Human: Erik says dalehileman and I are chatterbots. ALICE: Are all Erik says dalehileman and you chatterbots? Human: What do you think...

Shelley's not still there, I guess, or she could rove the streets for answers to these questions. I bet she would go back.
