HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Point by point, eh?? Hmm..well, as you wish.
I do not drink therefore, I will not be getting a beer. My sex life is irrelevant and I was out getting medicine for my wife, not fecal matter. As for your "unusual" words, I AM "having fun". You seem to be taking ME too seriously.
Languages and Linguistics are NOTmutually inclusive terms simply because they are defined as similar subject matter (I thought you learned THAT stuff in school??) and I assumed you meant them as they are properly defined. Again, perhaps I was mistaken. It could simply be where one went to school, eh? I will not argue that you can refer to them as a "passion" and perhaps use them as one in a singular, inclusive thought but it was my understanding that we were "having fun" AND learning...? Mistaken again, I'm afraid.
I choose to "take you" as you present yourself. Nothing more, nothing less. The good folks of this Board are not all that "serious" but they do have feelings and thoughts of thier own. Concepts notwithstanding, I believe it is important to say what one means and say it as well as one can. If this is a matter of me taking things in the wrong context, perhaps I would be better served by keeping MY thoughts out of this particular Thread? No offense, of course. I would rather just avoid a silly "tit for tat" argument.
1. You do not have errands to run. You don't need all that shit. Eat the fruit you already have at home, and drink a beer tonight (and get l...)
2. Guys, I honestly thought we'd have some fun with those unusual words. You guys are sooooo serious, and sooooo nitpicking. Man ! I'm not out to improve your "structure, spelling, grammar, and punctuation". I hope you learned that stuff in school. And if not, too bad. And it's OK, dude, I'l take ya as ya are
3. "Languages and linguistics". That's a concept, Mike, where the two words belong together - just like "linguistics" is singular. It would have sounded stupid to say "Languages and linguistics are passions with me", cause it's one passion. I really thought about that one. I think one can use both singular and plural, and argue for both, and I chose the singular form, cause I found that it described my condition best.
4. You'l see that it's my style, and I hope you'l take me as I am
5. I'l gladly take the "brotherly love", but leave the "kisses" for yer wife. With her, you can also place'm where ya want

I cannot stay long this morning, as I have errands to run, but I simply must make a quick comment regarding this Thread.
While I am always very pleased to see that there are members trying to improve their language skills, I hardly think that posting a few fancy words from a dictionary and providing definitions are what I had in mind!! HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, I do appreciate the effort but I should think that , if we truly want to improve our writing, we should further examine our STRUCTURE as well as spelling, grammar and punctuation! As an example;
And it so happens that languages and linguistics is a passion with me ... Very nice, however, when one employs plurals (languages AND linguistics) one would use the plural combining form "are" to express the state of being or possession. Also, when using contractions, we must remember that a contraction is a shortening of a word or word group and needs to include the proper word abbreviation to be accurate. Example ; You'll find that I am.. not you'l. You are contracting (shortening) the word "will" and are required to use both "l"s for the contraction to be properly completed.
Sorry to pick on you, Nicky but this IS your Thread! HAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!! It's nice to see interest in "languages" and "linguistics", however, I am really hoping to see improvement in our structure first!!! Pulling words from a dictionary is far too easy. HAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAAA!!!!!!!!! (*Kisses* and "brotherly" love). HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
