Subject: BS: Are you ept? Ert? Ane? I hope so...
From: Little Hawk
Date: 28 Jul 03 - 11:52 PM

We've all known people who are inept, right? We've all been inept at certain things, and suffered the shame that accompanies ineptitude. But how often do you hear about people being ept? When I first picked up a guitar I was hopelessly inept at playing it, but I practiced and practiced until I finally became reasonably ept. I love being ept, and I bet you do too.

Then there are inert people...those who help hold couches in place and give televisions a reason to exist. I despise the inert! I am on the lookout for people who are ert. Seriously ert. I want to hang out with lively, ert people who are active and energetic. Here's to the ert!

And then there are the inane...like my friend BDiBR. They are an embarassment to society. The inane are frequently also both inept and inert! Shocking. What we need are more people who are not only ept and ert, but also ane. Eptitude, ertia, and anity are much to be desired.

The point of this thread is: got any more great words like these? Feel free to contribute them now if you do...

Thanks to Jives for this idea.

That's good, Bill. I'm glad to hear you are on top of things. I have a friend who is so souciant that she's in a constant state of anxiety worrying about what people will think of her behaviour, her looks, her clothing, etc. I have tried to steer her in the direction of therapy, but she won't go because she's afraid that she might not meet with the therapist's approval. It's a real conundrum. Or is it an addendum? Well, anyway, it's a problem. She gets ebriated regularly in order not to lose control of her judgement or vital functions.

I don't overstand that in the most, Amos.

Did you know that Sax Rohmer wrote a series of books about "The Sidious Doctor Fah Kyu Tu" before he did the famous "Fu Manchu" series? It flopped. People weren't interested in a sidious Chinaman at that point in history. Times have changed though. I think novels about sidious Chinese might actually sell now, if marketed correctly.

"Does unambiguous mean the same as biguous, and if so maybe ambiguous is the same as guous."

Ambiguous means that you are guous, but guous on both sides, much as ambidexeterous means that you're as good with your left hand as you are with your right (dexter being the right). Therefore, unambiguous means that you are not ambiguous, and are therefor guous. In the same way unambidexterous means that you are not ambidexterous, but not necessarily right-handed.

Clear?

I recall a totally serious discussion in the Revenue Commissioners about "furbishing". The Minister announced his intention of introducing a scheme of tax relief for refurbishing run-down property, but when they looked it up in the dictionary to draft the appropriate legislation (tax law requires very careful drafting!) they discovered that the correct word is furbish, so that "refurbishing" would only apply to doing a place up the second time.

Somewhere between ex and in there must be a region called ternal. I went looking for the place with just a touch of fear and worry making me a hoplessly trepid traveller. I would have said Explorer but since I'm still ploring that name wouldn't be correct. I just fumble my way through so I'm a fairly trepid and travagant plorer.

RangerSteve, a dead insect is an extinsect (or an ex-insect).Do not confuse with a former religious group, an exsect. A former state of nervous depression is defunked. (If I hadn't had to cheat a little with that one, I'd have sembled; but I won't get tressed about it.) If the cobbler sticks to his last, what did he stick to first? Is red cabbage greengrocery?

Then my spare vaganza is an extra. I don't even want to figure out the tense of a travaganza.

Intramural sports are played "within the walls" (of a school, for instance).

Extramural sports are played "outside the walls" -- perhaps with another school.

Intermural sports would be played inside the walls, making it cramped for most atheletes.

Submural sports would be played under the walls, perhaps by moles.

Super- or supra- mural sport would be played above or over the walls (quidditch?).

Mural sports would be played on the walls.

It follows, then, that plain ol' sports aren't played at all.

Well, to cary this a bit further, Orthodoxy can have a counterpart of Paradoxy, and one could jump up into a plane wearing a metachute or an orthochute.

And I once dated a young lady who refused to be dismayed (spelling doesn't work but phonetics do.)

Rapaire: the Eton Wall Game would be ... paramural? metamural? incomprehensimural? (played with a wall, but nobody understands the rules)

Hold it -- I'm mixing my Latin and Greek roots here -- I'll be drummed out of the Linguistic Brownies ... admural? A game plyed nowhere near a wall would be proculmural (I've got all their records), while a game where the wall was very important would be ultramural. I think intermural would be a game where walls played against each other.

Pace Joseph Heller, but someone who wasn't a baptist would be an abaptist; would an ananabaptist be someone who wasn't a baptist, or someone who'd been re-baptised again? (Or a Frenchman who baptised bananas?)

Yesterday started out nicely, with clement weather. Then it started to rain, but at least everyone was driving wreckfully. I noticed a crowd had started to burse, then one of them tried to incite a riot, but we managed to excite it without too much trouble. Then I got a report of a woman who said that the exhabitants of her house broke in and stole some jewelry, however, it was impensive and priceful. We caught the culprits before they crossed the state line, so they were intradited easily enough. At court, a man who was fighting a summons that I wrote couldn't come up with a good excuse, (he had an incuse), so the judge onerated him. Later, someone fell in the river, when we found him, he had stopped spirating and suscitating, but we were able to rescue him (it was his second time, we scued him last week). I was glad to hear later that he spired from his injuries. Actually, it was pretty slow last night, which is why I had time to think up this stuff.

One of the latest songs in our choir's repertoire is called "Axises of Evil" - words by our own Paul Spencer and to the tune of "Brisbane Ladies". We sang it at the Dog last week for the second time ever. The first time it was in our pertoire. Hurry home Paul!

"We'll march off to war, like good little soldiers.
We'll march off to war for President Bush,
Until we destroy all the Axises of Evil,
For there's freedom to fight for and a lifestyle to push."

Looking at the first message in this thread...

you know the word empty...

I saw many years ago in a BBC TV program on the history of the English Language about a North Country word

one can "emp" a cart - that is to empty it - the cart is then "empty"

one can also "unemp" it - that is to fill it ...
