The UN-Grammafication of America continues

 The UN-Grammafication of America continues and continues to piss off Grandmas everywhere…Psychologically, it is an evolutionary imperative that language will evolve, much like its speakers. The problem is, this phonetic evolution usually leaves the previous generation feeling a bit communicatively chafed. Theres a whole group of Syntax Scorned Seniors shaking a rigid finger at an out of control youth.

I am a rabid word blender on a mission to make my modifications mainstream. I advise everyone to get on board and become their own Grammar Guru.

EUREKA! I’ve got an idea.

To be cont…

And now for the Cont…

Ok, so i am not the most organized chica I know and, well, neither is my blog. So, I’ve decided the best way of categorizing this sucker would be to title the categories to rhyme with the word IDEA.

Thank God for the Rhyme Dictionary and RhymeZone. I’ve pasted below a list of all the possibilities.  : )

This should be fun.

What does your body language say about you?

A study in body language.

Image via Wikipedia

I stumbled a great site about body language and figured I would share.

As we all know, communication is essential in society. Advancements in technology have transformed the way that we correspond with others in the modern world, yet when conversing face-to-face, it’s not only speech we verbalize that matters. Body language is truly a language of its own. We all have quirks and habits that are uniquely our own. What does your body language say about you? And what can you learn about others by becoming aware of what some of the signs mean?
 
I thought it would be fun to list some of the well-known signs that body language experts study and recognize. It is said that when talking to a person the information that we receive can be broken down as:

  • 10% from what the person actually says
  • 40% from the tone and speed of voice
  • 50% is from their body language.
