Also by Y29+16I think just because something is common it doesn't make it right.For example look at all the advertisements around us, all these subliminal messages telling us to buy,and buy,even as you are reading this post there are many ads throughout the website.We're so used to it, but this is what really messes us up. Look at gas prices, it spikes up all the time,but when it goes down people are so happy because its cheaper, when in reality that"cheaper" price is really expensive, we are just used to it. amirite?
Also by Y29+12Its interesting to think that pretty much everything we drink is sweet, or water. E.g apple juice, orange juice, soda, hot chocolate, even coffee sometimes, amirite?
Also by Y29+516You feel nervous on a test, when you're doing multiple choice and you feel like 2 questions contradict each other and you don't know what to pick, amirite?
Also about Language+51(American) English has more innuendo, slang and metaphors or figures of speech than any other (National) language in the world, amirite?
Also about Language+70A Canadian linguist of Acadian origin,R Landry, has clearly defined two forms of bilingalism, an« additive bilingualism » which is likely to enrich the mother-language elements and on the contrary a « substractive bilingualism which weaken or impoverish the basic elements of the mother- language or the source language. Could linguistic planners use these definitions, although sketchy , in devising accurate and efficient second language learning programs? amirite?
Also about Language+12Successes are also a reminder of failures. Amirite? More
