How about a little input on how we should start this thread off High Seas!

This thread will consist of many ideas and go in many different directions and I invite anyone to join!

This thread was started by the advice of High Seas so be sure to think him!

@reasoning logic,
Thanks for the invitation. I've already added the appropriate tags to your thread (ESL, etc). If you're not sure about cut-and-paste of the problematic posts you have encountered elsewhere on this forum, I'll take some time later today, copy them, and re-post them here. Try doing it yourself, first Smile

@High Seas,
I will wait and respond to yours as I do think it would be appropriate being that this was your idea!

@reasoning logic,
Many posters on this site know much more than I do about grammar, syntax, vocabulary, and teaching methods. Let's hope they show up here soon Smile

@High Seas,
I am sure they will as I fallow them and admire the knowledge that they share with me as well!

Do they have to be mutually exclusive?

@Ceili,
You showed up while I was struggling to parse the title here; perhaps you can make sense of our friend's writing style - it has solidly defeated me so far.

It's not the style, but it keeps me thinking, thank you...

@reasoning logic,
Well, I read it and Im no more enlightened than before. How we jumped from veiled insults to this topic has let me fall off the turnip truck ANYWAY, play nice and dont run with scissors.

@farmerman,
Yes it may seem childish but I do learn from these types of situation and it allows others to judge my intellectual honesty and theirs as well if they are willing! LOL

Words in English don't mean what you think they mean in Indian dialects - stay away from the other thread if you know what's good for you. Last warning Smile

@High Seas,
Ive learned, by patient assistance from my Colleagues from SW Inja, to speak some very naughty phrases in MALAYALAM (Mal'-ya-lum).
I think that learning naughty phrases in afew languages is always a social plus.

@farmerman,
Had to look that one up: ".....though Dravidian in origin, over eighty percent of words in Malayalam and Telugu are pure Sanskrit words..." Still have no idea which Indian language the OP here might speak or understand. Why not try some of your Malayalam phrases? They might make sense to him.

@High Seas,
Are you being a joker or are you being intellectually honest with your self?

If you were to be honest I would think that you would know that Tamil is my first language then fallowed by a few others and that English is just a universal language!

Tamil. How would an honest man guess this from the nonsense you post on this forum in English? Perhaps there's a way - sadly I don't know it. Do tell.
