hello everyone.
this community has been so quiet lately.
i thought i'd post the word i made up today: tangentize
"i tend to tangentize a lot when explaining things."
i thought it was kinda funny.

has anyone ever been to this site? its kinda right up our alley. and my word is already in there, so i guess i can't claim copyright!!!

So if you have any funny words - please make a new post and help liven up the comm.

Hi all!! Just found this community, so this is my first post :)

I have a Bachelor's degree in Language and Applied Linguistics, but haven't really done much with it - as I am now working at the Immigration Museum in Melbourne (in a non-linguistic related capacity). Naturally, I still have an interest in language and linguistics - hence, here I am :)

Thought fellow linguists would find this funny (it's a hyperlink, by the way): English is Tough Stuff. Check it out and let me know what you think :)

Happy LJing!

Fenis-a penis that is a fish

This came about after reading a poem describing a penis as a limp fish. Odd poem? No just odd people reading it

First Post

I just joined this community (It's rather cute, by the way. Love it!) and thought I'd offer up my favorite word of all...

Shay: Pronounced just as it's written, shay is the all encompassing word. However, it is often a favored substitute of the word f***. Example: "Shay off." or "Shay you." and of course, "Shayer."

Heh. Sorry. Just had to spread a little random Tayaness.
Anyway, nice to meet you all!
