Yesterday, I asked you to share what’s strange about English.
One reader pointed out that if someone is homeless he doesn’t have a home; but if something is priceless… it’s expensive.
Well, that’s not all.
Here are a few more word oddities. Enjoy!
Americans drive on a parkway but park in a driveway.
Vegetarians eat vegetables but humanitarians don’t eat humans.
Fat chance means the same as slim chance … but a wise guy and a wise man are not the same.
If Amazon delivers your package in a car it’s called a “shipment”, but if they send it on a plane it’s called “cargo.”
When an alarm goes off it begins to ring.
A woman wears a pair of panties but only one bra.
Your nose can run and your feet can smell.
Hungarian people says: search money, but American people says: make money. Huge difference!
Don’t want a email again
How could it not be?
Please explain about fat and slim chances
I didn’t understand too.
I don’t understand too! fat chance = big chance to happend something or difficult decision
The same with Greek people. Our nose also can run and out feet can smell.
I realize that English is a vast language. It seems that a person can study it deeper and deeper for a long time. Great!
That’s so odd. 😃
Humanitarians can be omnivorous, that means they eat vegetables and meat.
