"You should have called yourself Phonics The Hedgehog. That would have been something. As it is, you're way too Sega for this room." - Robusto


"'God help us!' said Holmes, after a long silence. 'Why does Fate play such tricks with poor helpless worms? I never heard of such a case as this that I do not think of Baxter's words, and say: "There, but for the grace of God, goes Sherlock Holmes."'


'“There's an east wind coming, Watson.”

“I think not, Holmes. It is very warm.”

“Good old Watson! You are the one fixed point in a changing age. There's an east wind coming all the same, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter, Watson, and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind none the less, and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared."'

comment Different conditional clauses — “if you saw”, “if you were to see”, “if you had seen”
Both of those sentences are related to hypothetical situations.

comment “Yes marry have I” usage
But teaching them the archaic use might be proficient toward their studies!

@fumblefingers you could nominate yourself too, you know. I think you would not be too shabby for a mod.

comment Should the English word for noodles be ''lamen'' or ''ramen''?
Unrelated; however I was taught that Japan invented ramen first because of recurring famine. Is this correct?

@Sim yes, more like that. On the further note, we should probably stop commenting; system is giving me warning.

@sim :O Wait, do we? Last time I checked we didn't... let me check it again. Edit: We do not have R sound, however neither do we have exact L sound either. More like those two combined.

@Sim Sorry if I am wrong; I am basing off the L/R problem with Korean Language; we eat ramens too ;)

I honestly have no idea; although ramen sounds better than lamen.

Interestingly, there was once a letter that represented the "th" sound, such as the word the. It looked like this: "þ", and whenever a word required a "th" sound, they would use this letter.

Actually, the more proper phonetic translation requires a letter with the sounds L and R combined. So neither translations are incorrect; rather, it depends on how you look at it.
