Different Dialects

Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 2, 2019 11:08 AM
This is a flippant, silly video (with some language that you might not want young kids hearing), but it shows that the speakers of the same language can still has some have some significant barriers to understanding each other. Dialects of a same language have different pronunciations but also distinct vocabulary that is often place-specific. Dialects and accents create variety in cultural geography that makes traveling around the world enticing and exhilarating because there is always something else to learn about this crazy Earth.

Women in medieval society

Women in medieval society | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
It is, however, dangerous to generalise about the status and experience of medieval women, whose lives were shaped by as many different considerations as they are today. Interpretations of women's place in medieval society have to strike a balance between exceptional individuals, who by dint of their wealth, status and achievements are often relatively well documented, and the experience of ordinary women, whose lives tended to leave few traces on the historical record.

Minulla on melko hyvä passiivinen englannin sanavarasto niitten vuosikymmenien ansiosta, jolloin tavasin tekstejä sanakirja kädessä. Nyt ei sanakirjoja enää tarvita, koska on olemassa pikasanakirjoja, joista kirjoitin täällä. Minä en juuri niitä tarvitse.

Medieval monsters: from the mystical to the demonic

Medieval monsters: from the mystical to the demonic | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
Numerous documents from antiquity tell of monstrous people living at the edge of the known world. In the 1st century CE, Pliny the Elder described extraordinary races of humans living in India and Ethiopia: these included mouthless hairy creatures called Astomi, who had no need of food or drink; men with dog's heads; and one-legged creatures who could hop at incredible speed and use their giant feet as umbrellas to protect them from the sun.

Death and the afterlife

Death and the afterlife | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
It is possible to detect an element of black humour in some aspects of medieval death culture. For example, one 15th century poem recounts a debate between a corpse and the worms who are eating her; the dead woman shouts for her knights to defend her but the worms remind her that she is beyond help.

English idioms | Learn English

English idioms | Learn English | Suomi - Lukemista ja tekemistä verkossa | Scoop.it
English idioms, proverbs, and expressions are an important part of everyday English. They come up all the time in both written and spoken English. Because idioms don't always make sense literally, you'll need to familiarize yourself with the meaning and usage of each idiom. That may seem like a lot of work, but learning idioms is fun, especially when you compare English idioms to the idioms in your own language.

How to Identify Idioms in a Text

Authors use a variety of tools to keep their audiences entertained. They use comparisons, emotion, dialogue and humor. Another common strategy used, not only in text, but in daily conversations, is the inclusion of idioms. Idioms are phrases in which the actual meaning cannot be derived from the literal meaning of the words used. For example, a popular idiom is "It's raining cats and dogs." If you are familiar with this particular phrase, you know that it is raining really hard. However, to a person unfamiliar with the English language, it would not make sense. Idioms add color to otherwise unspectacular text and keep the reader on his toes.
