Obvious and it’s related form obviously are two words that are used on high rotation in my vocabulary. Not a day goes by that one or both of these words aren't uttered. By definition, obvious an adjective, is something that is easily seen, recognized or understood, lacking in subtlety. Obviously, an adverb is without subtlety.
I do wonder why it is necessary to have signs that say “the road/path/park/swimming pool (insert anything in a public place built for use by the public) is here to share’. Do we really need a sign to remind us of this? Isn’t it obvious that there are other human beings on the planet who would like to use the same road/path/park/swimming pool?
Other things that should be obvious:
Spotted on Emmadime
Facund design by Boo
Use the spatula and timer Joseph and Joseph Baking Set
I love to read and collect words, individually and collectively. I have a number of notebooks that I have filled with words I've collected over the years. These are words that may sound poetic, be meaningful, sound funny when spoken out loud or, I simply find interesting. Yet there are times when my english is not so good. There are a number of factors that affect my grasp of the language at times, the biggest culprit being heterophones. (No it’s not a girl phone that likes a boy phone. It’s got nothing to do with phones, boys or girls as the word may suggest).
Heterophones are words with the same spelling, different sounds and different meanings. Some examples include:
Bass - a kind of fish or low pitch sound
Close - to shut something or to describe something/someone that is nearby
Content - being satisfied or information
Dove - a pretty white bird or past tense of dive
Moped - a small motorcycle or the past tense of mope
Overall - an item of clothing or collective
Present - a gift or the current moment
Record- to make note or something one would play on a record player
Sake - a rice wine or benefit
Wind - to tighten a springor movement of air
Tear - to separate or what we produce when upset, laughing too hard or frustrated because we have no idea what the other person is saying!
If I had a *moped I would jump on it, wearing my *overall and ride into the *wind. (See how easy it is to misinterpret something and why my english may not be so good sometimes)
I do admire people who can speak and understand multiple languages, it’s a wonderful skill and truth be told, very fancy.
February is a big birthday month in my family. From the 5th -15th, my mum, brother, dad ,sister in law, an aunt, a cousin, and I all celebrate our birthdays. This year I turned 39 and celebrated quietly over dinner with Mr B and friends. It was quite this year because next year I want it to be BIG. My mind has already started ticking about what to do for my 40th and have so far come up with celebrating in New York, celebrating in New York and celebrating in New York. As you can see I’m stuck. Because of this I would like to enlist your help.I am open to ideas and invite you to help me plan my 40th.
For now, Happy Birthday to my family and everyone else celebrating their birthday this month.
