Words, Words, Words ...
In the beginning was the word
Excuse the Biblical touch. Something that everybody knows but nobody really thinks about. What are the origins of so many words? Who coined what phrase? Why do some expressions become popular? What damage can we do with them?
And why the Tag? Good question! Is it an noun? Or a verb? Is it a label that we put to identify things or is it to follow closely on something? Or trail behind? Is it an identify mark, like that of a graffiti artist? Or maybe a loose end? And here's where we go back to the word?.
That's what this webpage is all about. For native English speakers, but with a particular bent for those poor people who have been inflicted, having to live with English as their second language. For everybody. For the intellectually curious, for those who are looking for other ways to express themselves in a language that isn't theirs and of course for people who love to learn new things, for whatever reason that may be.
Word has it....
That we are receiving more and more people who have the same inflictions as us, be they from.... well, wherever they may be. People who enjoy learning new things, be it whatever language they speak in originally. Quite exciting!
