    English in the world

    For those who can put up what I write, or are scared by my level in what I imagine to be english, here is a reason. Not an excuse, but dogs won't never create cats, won't they?... I apologize anyway...

    "To be energetic and self-sufficing is to be happy; but while one desire remains in the heart happiness may not come there. For to desire is to be incomplete: it is the badge of dependence, the signal of unhappiness, and to be freed from that is to be freed from every fetter that can possibly be forged." (James Stephens, Deirdre)

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

              JN, on many occasions in the past I have wanted to compliment your command of English. I really enjoy your turn of phrase and the way that you directly translate French phrases to invent something new in English. Your 'industrial logic' line is a classic example and one which better captured the situation than the English equivalent. I often think about it in other situations since you've posted it.

              Much of the richness in the way that Irish people use the English language comes from Irish (Gaelic) language phrases being translated to and adopted into English.

              I much prefer your imaginative use of English than the absolute industrial logic of my own!

                        I may have mentioned this before, but I always enjoyed the notice over on boards.ie entitled "Grammar Nazis". When you open the thread, it simply says "You're days are numbered."
                        Tis but a scratch.

                          I have wondered about my dictionary in predictive text and the ideas it gives me for a word it thinks I am thinking-it makes me worried that it thinks I might know those words. It must be a different language...or I wasn't paying attention in English class the day they did big words.

                              ...I'd have said "a right bunch" boo boo - reminds me of growing up in a house full of flaming school teachers - our table at Christmas dinner was like a forest of wagging fingers with them all lecturing each other!
