THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

SO YOU THINK ENGLISH IS EASY?

I love the English language, don’t you? Words conjure up so many images in the mind. Words may be used in oh so many ways and dependent on how you use the words and construct sentences can make a huge difference to the sound and the piece of written or spoken English.

English words are not just words, they take on their own character and individuality and every word can be whatever it wants to be. So much so that I came across the following and thought it fully illustrated the subtle and not so subtle complexities of the English language.

Read on:

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.

2) The farm was used to produce produce.

3) We must polish the Polish furniture.

4) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

5) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.

6) A sea bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

7) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

8) They were too close to the door to close it.

9) After going out after having done some sewing, a sewer fell into a sewer.

10) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.
