"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 “stay home” vs. “stay at home”
@wfaulk True. But currently I can't think of one on top of my head. The example I gave was from a sentence I remember reading from a book.

comment “stay home” vs. “stay at home”
@Wfaulk Notice the word "can". The question here asked whether you can omit "at" and still be grammaticaly correct. I didn't say that you can't, but I said that there is a choice.

comment Is it true that the 100 most common English words are all Germanic in origin?
In my opinion there is alot of words in germanic origins because, let's face it, the original english 1500 hundred years ago was made entirely by anglo-saxons; that is until missionaries from Rome, Vikings from Scandinavia, French invaders called Normans changed english compeletly...

comment Would the “Cavendish drawl” be considered a dialect?
I do not know the exact answer... But wouldn't it be considered a dialect if it is spoken locally? If it is only spoken by a family and its social circle, I don't think it would be considered as dialect.

comment Pronouncing “A”: “ai” vs. “ah”
Probably Ai-men when spoken, and Ah-men when sung. Atleast its that way in our church.

comment Origin of “they”, “them”, and “their”
Huh, I asked some of my friends this question and they said that the reason for change was because of the impact Viking had on their occupation in England. Its either one or both.
