Would that be learning New Chaucerian?** or learning Chaucerian words that are new?

but can one really say any Chaucerian words are "new"? Most of them are at least 600 years old, and given the changes that English has undergone, that is not very "new".


Or possibly might you mean learning Chaucerian words that are not in one's own vocabulary?






**as spoken by the Residents of New Chaucer?

I would not want to insult anyone's intelligence by translating into English that which I presume is already known. How would you feel if I thought it needful to translate something as simple as

Quot viae quae homo peragranda,
Donec grandem anima fit.
Sic, et quot maria columba velanda
Donec quiescit acta,
Sic et quot sagitt'ab arcibus volanda,
Ante pac'aeternam fore?


or

Upon the vices to procede
After the cause of mannes dede,
The ferste point of Slowthe I calle
Lachesce, and is the chief of alle,
And hath this propreliche of kinde,
To leven alle thing behinde.
Of that he mihte do now hier
He tarieth al the longe yer,
And everemore he seith, "Tomorwe";
And so he wol his time borwe,
And wissheth after "God me sende,"
That whan he weneth have an ende,
Thanne is he ferthest to beginne.


(Which, being in English, is impossible to translate INTO English.)

or

No, Amos. I could never insult you or any MOABite in such a manner!

BWL, if you want to learn an Old Norse word, it's hard to go wrong if you start out with Skoal! One of my favorites! I'll make it purple in honor of your made up holiday.

And by the way, did you know that the double listing of MOAB in the Forum seems to only appear in IE? I just opened Firefox to check the color if worked right (displaying a visited link color) and there MOM is, just ONCE in the forum? How can this be?

blundra "shut one's eyes" in the oldest sense in Middle English, "to stumble around blindly"

drit -- Norwegian for "shit" or something negative.

hggva -- to hew or carve

myki -- dung (Old Norse)



viska: a form of literary irresponsibility practiced by certain Nordic fish.

blundra "shut one's eyes" in the oldest sense in Middle English, "to stumble around blindly"

Or, perhaps, the root of our word "blunder"?

drit -- Norwegian for "shit" or something negative.

...mayhap the source of the English word "dirt"?

hggva -- to hew or carve

Amos! You don't know how to hack????

myki -- dung (Old Norse)

Cow (or bull) manure, something appropriate here

viska: a form of literary irresponsib....

One would think you knew about whisk (or viska) brooms....

I shall assume that no one is offended by my emendations of Amos's gibberings.

"Hack" is computerese for "knocking out code" or "programming like crazy." I assume that Amos knows how to do this and is a premier hacker.

(Those who break into other people's computers are called "crackers", no matter WHAT the press says. They are also criminals and should have painful things done to them.)

Hi, Mom! Today is

Nice Day!!!

Yes, when people tell you to "Have a Nice Day!" this is the day they're talking about! Nice Day is the day when we observe the importance of the French city of Nice. Yeah, we know it's pronounced like "niece", but it's not our problem if supermarket cashiers are ignorant. Nice is the fifth largest city in France, with a population of 993,000 people, and is hot shit with people who believe spending money to turn brown is a prerequisite for Nirvana. Nice is near Cannes and Monaco where people with even more money waste it on similarly ill-conceived attempts at self-actualization.

Have a Nice Day!

I had a nice niece in Nice. I think that's where British Airways sent my luggage when I went to France. Oh, wait. That was Nimes. Totally different place, where they have an aquaduct (which the Romans built and which, for some reason, doesn't go any where) and where the people don't lay around getting brown and wasting money all the time. My baggage ORIGINALLY when to Bangkok. It made it from DC to Heathrow, but somehow got on the plane to Thailand while I went to Paris and then to Avignon (yes, I've been on the bridge there but I didn't dance because the sign said "Pas de deux" which means "No dancing" in French and besides, that bridge ends abruptly in the middle of the river). So BA found my luggage in Bangkok and flew it back to London and then to Paris and then to Nimes and had it delivered by van to my hotel in Avignon, and I finally had some clean underwear.

I have just returned from a Legion meeting, now that things have dried out some. They are planning to build a railroad to the Hovel, so that beer and such stuff can be hauled up in tank-car loads. What's being planned is a circular line from the mainline off to the Hovel and then back down. The engine would pull a line of full tank cars up, and move 'em forward as they are emptied. When they reach the mainline again they'll be disconnected from the Legion Hovel, Western, Eastern, Southern, Northern and Corn Creek Rail Road (LHWESN&CCRR) and returned to sender for a refill. In exchange a full car will be coupled to the end of the train and a FRED installed on it.

The vote was overwhelmingly in favor of this plan, and was announced by the usual hoots, hollers, and shooting out of nearby streetlights.

Hi, Mom! Just in case anyone cares, today is

National Airhose Day!!!

Yes, it's the day when we show our appreciation for the lowly airhose. With the demise of the neighborhood service station, the free airhose is now on the edge of extinction. Sure, there are plenty of convenience stores and such that sell air from air vending machines, but those are captive airhoses, not free. And many of us have our own air compressors and airhoses, but those are domesticated airhoses, not wild and free.

So, if you happen to be driving around today and think, "Hmmm.... When's the list time I checked my tire pressure?" and if, by chance, the place you stop for air has a free airhose, be sure to salute it. It's one of a dying breed.

"Airhoses! Because when you need an airhose, a panty hose just won't do!"
