  • 11. Jargon
    • If you read the advertisement in a newspaper you will note the abbreviations used to cut down the number of words. Why are we able to work out their meaning?
    • See if you can work out what the following mean:
    • Fr sle. Semi-det.3-bed.bung., liv.rm., din. rm., kit., bath., sep. W.C., C.H.., gd-sized gdn., gge. Nr. schools, stn., & shops.
  • 12. Abbreviations
    • a.m.
    • e.g.
    • et al.
    • etc.
    • ibid
    • i.e.
    • N.B.
    • p.m.
    • R.S.V.P
    • viz.
    • Ante meridiem – before noon
    • Exempli gratis – for example
    • Et alii – and other
    • Et cetera – and the like
    • Ibidem – in the same place
    • Id est – That is
    • Nota bene – mark well
    • Post meridiem – after noon
    • R éspondez, s’il vous plait – please reply
    • Videlicet - namely
  • 13. Comumnication
    • It has been deisocveerd that so lnog as the frist and lsat letter in a word are corerct and in the rihgt plcae then we are albe to udnerstnad what is witrten.
    • Lagnuage is aoubt coumunication.
    • If we laern semointhg viasually we are albe to “see” the viasual obejct (word) dispete the fcat that the letetrs are all jumlbed. That is, we have a viasual memroy of the wrod.
    • We remebmer and laern lagnuage viasually. A good way to laern is to wrtie wrods & senentces dwon. Laerning is aslo aoubt how mcuh effrot you are wilinlg to put itno your wrok.
    • The aim is to be betetr at lagnuage and not necesesarily taht you are “clveer” or get a six. Lagnuage is comumnicating your veiws and oipnions.
    • Isn’t that faisnating?
  • 14. WORDLY WISDOM
    • Old English proverbs can be found in the following:
    • OOKBEFOREYOUEAP
    • ASTTCHNTEMESAVESNNE
    • MNYHNDSMKELIGHTWORK
    • TMANYCKSSPILTHEBRTH
    • THARLYBIRDCATCHSTHWORM
    • ABIRDINHEHANDISWOINHEBUSH
  • 15. Changing the meaning
    • Emphasis
    • ’ hopeless, un’comfortable
    • PÅL drove to Ballangen
    • Pål DROVE to Ballangen
    • Pål drove TO Ballangen
    • Pål drove to BALLANGEN
    • In oral English where you put weight on the words
    • Is very important to communication.
  • 16. Toungue twisters
    • A tree toad loved a she-toad Who lived up in a tree. He was a two-toed tree toad But a three-toed toad was she. The two-toed tree toad tried to win The three-toed she-toad's heart, For the two-toed tree toad loved the ground That the three-toed tree toad trod. But the two-toed tree toad tried in vain. He couldn't please her whim. From her tree toad bower With her three-toed power The she-toad vetoed him.
    Learn a few tongue twisters – to practice your lips, tongue and vocal chords. You need to practice aloud just like an athlete practices running by running – not by reading about it.
