Just referred to someone as having a cheesy grin and then realised that it comes from saying cheese when being photographed.

I always thought it was supposed to sound like a Syd Barret Pink Floyd song.
Combarieu declares that the songs of birds are not "musical" either, because they are "very difficult to take down in notation." See his Music-Its Laws and Evolution, 155. Will some divine power please create a "Musical" bird to sing the Air for G String in exact Equal Temperament for M. Combarieu?

Have had two or three english language don don but just had a big one.

Incessantly.

Now the french word incessament, which i ASSUMED to be the same word because why wouldn't i? ment is how you end adverbs in french so both are the same adverb, well in french it means soon or presently (in its meaning that isn't currently). But i just found out in english incessantly only EVER means persistent, never-ending. I knew about this usage but somehow thought it could also be used the same as in french. And the thing is i'm sure i've used it in english like i would use the french word and probably puzzled people or looked like an idiot (well i'm sure i ddin't do it in speaking). I mean after all these years it sucks there's still shit like this that happens. I should never assume because a word in english seems to have the same etymology, basically is the same, that it necessarily means the same thing. I had another recently but now i forgot what it was.


Like in french i'll do the dishes incessantly would mean i'll do the dishes very soon. Except in english of course i'm saying i'll do the dishes perpetually. Which...is actually factual i suppose.

incessant also usually has the connotation that it's in spite of some kind of opposition that the thing is done repeatedly. incessantly taking phone calls at a movie theater for example

what about when you realized the reason parents ask kids to say cheese is because your mouth has to make a smiley shape to pronounce the "ee" part?

it's more of the ""se" part. if you have trouble pronouncing "s" (if it sounds like "sh" or "th"), you're supposed to shape your mouth in smile

Upset that it's wheelbarrow and not wheelbarrel.
I had this whole backstory in my head where the first "wheelbarrel" was a barrel someone cut in half and put wheels on the bottom of in ye olde times. This destroys my narrative.
Apparently "barrow" comes from the word "bearwe" which means "thing used to carry things" aka basket.

"Wheelbarrow" just sounds like Homestar Runner saying "Wheelbarrel" imho.

This seemed...off to me, so I went looking and:

cheesy (adj.) Meaning "cheap, inferior" is attested from 1896, perhaps originally U.S. student slang, along with cheese (n.) "an ignorant, stupid person." In late 19c. British slang, cheesy was "fine, showy" (1858), probably from cheese (n.2) and some suggest the modern derogatory use is an "ironic reversal" of this. The word was in common use in medical writing in the late 19c. to describe morbid substances found in tubers, decaying flesh, etc.
...brewed into the common yeast of the waves.

Oh yeah.


I had a sort of language don don just now because i thought it's stupid that in english you don't have a specific word for the back of the neck which in french we do and it's nuque and it's when i noticed...oh...neck...nuque....hmm... so that was my don don. Don't know why i never noticed that before. Clearly same etymology. Neck is Cou in french otherwise. But if you grab someone by the back of the neck, it's grabbing them by the nuque (pronounced someoen like nook but not really because the U isn't oo).


But it's still stupid you don't have a specific word for it!

Seminal 1 = influencing future developments in a field
Seminal 2 = of or relating to semen (eg, seminal fluid, seminal vesicles)

Seminal 1 is like semen for abstract things like music genres. eg, Loveless is a seminal shoegaze album. It is like the semen that made shoegaze.

I'm sorry the post had to be this gross.
