WOW WOW WOW English was a widely spoken language since the middle ages and since has spread over the globe, the beauty and functionality of the language has proven itself as a major language found in most countries and most countries use English as a first language, or in fact, an international language. However an outside force has permeated the language and its influence has spread to very many speakers of the language.
Every now and again a new word hits the language market: A popular one is the meaningless and pointless expression: “Wow”, from the toddler to the dodderer, all use the expression to display their surprise and a jaw hanging open like a thirsty dog and seals the expression” WOW” Even my dog uses the expression to display his aversion of humans short comings language wise. Seems easier to cavort with an open slobbering gob. More sensitive Wowers place a dainty hankie over their dainty gobs
Another overused word is “Crap”Crap is used to express quality, quantity, like, or dislike, and something which humans compare their knowledge to without the inconvenience of a “t**d” to make the comparison fair. Crap in the language gives it a professional twang. WOW ek se.
The other day in Cape Town I saw several vehicles displaying the word WEE_PEE (not in the sea) on their number plates. Must be some daft alien on the Southern Most tip of Sunny South Africa.
T he latest and most hated word today is SANRAL. Lekker on the tongue is it not? When people hear that Blasphemous word they go the alternative way and chuck their Pass card away. Some call it an E-Toll tag. They do go the tolled way and threaten to close the toll roads down. WOW WOW. Then we have something going viral: Pertaining to, caused by, or resembling a virus. Now many authors’ editors and other writers, butchers, bakers and candle-stick makers use the word and I remain in the dark: Viral: or resembling a virus. Is difficult to attach to an expression. What I do resembles a virus: And for the life of me I cannot see, observe, note, sense, pin down, tabulate or express the word virus irrespective what I say even if it is viral. A virus is?
