Further, there were other "crowns" used as money:

1 British crown corresponds to 0,25 £ = 0.325 US$
(but in 1940, a crown amounted to 0.8175 US$)

Lol - I remember this sound, and Bob Dylan is still an extraordinary person.

Citing:
In his essay, Dylan writes about the impact that three important books made on him: Herman Melville's Moby ****, Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front and Homer's The Odyssey. He concludes: "Our songs are alive in the land of the living. But songs are unlike literature. They’re meant to be sung, not read. The words in Shakespeare’s plays were meant to be acted on the stage. Just as lyrics in songs are meant to be sung, not read on a page. And I hope some of you get the chance to listen to these lyrics the way they were intended to be heard: in concert or on record or however people are listening to songs these days.

Lol - the British pronounce "shush" like "bush" - I had to check the American prununciation, and it rhymes with rush.

Marianne Marianne

I'm not sure why we're corrupting rhyming our haikus. Don't you think the dissonace (as I would call it) - the dull thud - of a non-rhyme makes more of an impact?

+111 Reply

Bub Bub

In response to “I'm not sure why we're --corrupting-- rhyming...

Actually, there is no need to rhyme haikus, and "dissonance" can bring diversity. I think that each of us can bring their own feelings and ideas, with or without rhymes. My mention of "shush" was more another evidence for the differences between British and American English, also in pronunciation. And there are all these false friends, which were/are the cause of misunderstandings: http://thelanguagefactory.co.uk...false-friends/
