I know that at my son's school, he is an outcast cause he doesn't 'street talk'... I feel sorry for the little bugger.

mrp..my kids got that too.. we moved to a rural 'factory town'..and my kids were hounded cos they 'talked posh'...that is came from professional parents
2:36 am
jillibus

not there, taz -- good thought, though
2:36 am
Haz1558

tazpink - the aforementioned book by Lynne Truss explores how the use of punctuation and grammar clarifies language.
2:37 am
jillibus

can't understand this "dumbing down"!
2:37 am
rolin

need a cuppa..brb
2:37 am
tazpink

ty for the clarification
2:38 am
JFB

Rolin you are so right! My son [now 20] was given a grade A for an essay he wrote. I found 27 spelling and gramatical errors - his teacher could only find 23! But I am 57 and she was straight from training.
2:39 am

Back shortly.
2:41 am

bye for now! dinner time!!

I'm with you JFB... children should learn the rules of language first and then they can decide when to follow them... if they never learn them, who's to tell whether they're being creative, or just ignorant...
2:49 am
jillibus

Do they still teach grammar in England? It seems to have been left by the wayside here.
2:50 am
Frances

Just like using a calculator. A group of youths were astounded when I added up a column of figures without a calculator. I told them I used the oldest one known to man - the one between my ears. They didn't get it!
2:51 am
rolin

back again...it all stems from the idea that the process is the most important thing..its the process of creativity..that educates.which seen in isolation is fine...but it forgets that the purpose to write is to communicate ideas toothers..a piece can be amazingly creative...but if no one can make head nor tail of it..it only benefits the person who created it
2:53 am
rolin

jilli..we teach the basics..verbs adjective nouns tenses clauses phrases punctuation.
2:53 am
sherb

morning Frances :) ...mental arithmetic... another dying skill...
2:53 am
jillibus

subjunctives?
2:53 am
rolin

nope.none of the gritty stuff...theres no time...it has been pressured out of the curriculum
2:54 am

jilli - I can't actually remember being taught grammar myself, and I went to school in the 70's... but I studied languages, and I think that's how I picked most of it up...

what's your view then, Byzantine?

Hooray for rolin!

ooooh no jilli..i could live with that.what the kids say and write is...'if i would of...'

my english for 11th and 12th grade (the same teacher) made us learn how to do all of the moods, tenses, etc. of a word
2:56 am
Haz1558

I was taught grammar, initially through Latin and then through foreign languages. Grammar is the structure that holds language together and shouldn't be swept away. (I'm back)
2:56 am
sherb

had to look up 'aeolists'...
2:56 am
jillibus

oh, hohoho, rolin -- but one person who uses that is a retired TEACHER!!!!
2:56 am

Mental arithmetic and grammar - we had it drummed into us at school in the fifties and sixties.
2:57 am

and in the thirties...

i stink at mental arithematic.

I love science...it's just when you get into all of those chemical equations that I tend to lose interest.
3:01 am
Haz1558

Latin is still taught in some schools here, although probably not the extent that it once was. It's a pity as it forms a great basis for learning about language. As for maths, I'm not great, but mental arithmetic was drummed into us at primary school. Multiplication tables by rote wasn't fun, but it was effective!
3:01 am
saphyre

We HAD to take Latin when I was in school
3:01 am
jillibus

Funnily enough, I liked chemistry and biochemistry -- I seem to like visual things, not numbers
3:02 am

I remember having to listen to those small records with the times table on them when I got into the 5th grade.
3:03 am

We started learning our times tables at five years old.
3:03 am
Haz1558

I had to laugh at one scene in 'Dead Poets Society' when a supposed Latin lesson with eighteen year olds was going on. They were doing things that would have been covered in their first year.
3:03 am
Angb

Evening all. Heard you talking about Latin roots. What is the verb of sedition? Any clues?
3:03 am
saphyre

We weren't allowed to go to fourth grade unless we had the times tables down. It seemed mean then but I'm glad since it is one thing you always need
3:03 am
jillibus

No times tables until 5th grade??? We got them much earlier and were into algebra and geometry by then as I recall (Brit school in Shanghai)
3:04 am
EnigmaNeko

Well, I grew up in Mississippi (USA).
3:04 am
jillibus

Well, I guess that accounts for it - lol

Sedition is a noun, no verb given, but the adjective is seditious.

M: An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
O: No it isn't!
M: Yes it is! 'tisn't just contradiction.
O: Look, if I *argue* with you, I must take up a contrary position!
M: Yes but it isn't just saying "no it isn't".
O: Yes it is!
M: No it ISN'T! Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of anything the other person says.
O: It is NOT!

5:26 am
M3

are found it , if your interested lol xThe legal position is that the front side windows on all cars must allow 70% of light to pass through them. That figure also applies to the windscreens of cars first used before April 1985; any car first used from then onwards has to let 75% of light through the windscreen.

My parents were using my grandmother's old electrolux after they bought her house (this was about 10 years ago). I vacced with it one day and couldn't figure out why it wasn't picking up a nit of paper. Looked at the powerhead. Bristles completely worn off the roller. My parents were oblivious!

2:59 pm
stidmama

yes, they do! treat them like blueberries. Sort through them and use only the nice ones (not the mushy ones) and put them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. When they are frozen, you can put them in a plastic bag and they keep their shape until you are ready to use them!
2:59 pm
Minveryork

Sorry I missed your story stid!My husband kicked me out of the computer room so he could sleep. Are you going to tell another chapter tonight? I sure hope so!
2:59 pm

Once you freeze them, can you go back later and make jam?
2:59 pm
hurshy

natch
3:00 pm

are all those de7s and de 6s at the beginning related? I can't find them
3:52 pm
pabtrek

jill there are three sets
3:52 pm
Vicuna

the first de6 is to make up your mind, and the next two de7's are the verb conjugated and the prson who does it. The next de6 is an order, then de7 past tense, and finally de7's are past and present tense of condemning an action
3:53 pm
helenkeller

no - not all related - two basic sets - one has to do with choosing, the other to state, positively & negatively
3:53 pm

3:56 pm

ti6/21 please, vicuna
3:57 pm

ti6/21 has various definitions all related to third things. It starts with what you do to your shoelace, + last 2 letters of frozen water
3:57 pm
pabtrek

and a te5/20 that is driving me crazy
3:57 pm
Vicuna

Whoops, sorry, I forgot there's also an r in the middle!
3:58 pm
Vicuna

te5/20 - past tense of doing something or other with combing fibers, but if you've got te on one end and past tense on the other, you know what letter has to come in the middle!
3:58 pm
jillibus

vi -- I'm not getting the de "order" - got the others though

4:03 pm
Vicuna

tw8/20 means 8 letters long, and the whole word is worth 20 points. In this case that tells you that all the letters after w must be worth only one point each.
