"Some of these everyday phrases make the speaker sound unintelligent because they lack originality, some indicate poor grammar, and others just connote mental laziness".
this list gives me the feeling that there are tiny spiders all over my body. but instead of spiders, they are small 8 legged versions of myself and when I squish one, its like I am smashing a small version of myself. They are holding me in spider court and I will probably get the death penalty. im getting eatin alive by spiders and not even god can help me now
“These may be the only opportunities many students have for an immersive experience on a college campus before they arrive for their first year,” Creighton says.
Alot of the replies have the saying "just saying", while still saying why they agree with this post. That should been added in replace of #6 for me. The phrase "It is what it is", is akin to "Que sera, sera" and shouldn't be included in this list of *clears throat*.cherry picked phrases.
The statement of tautology obviously contains no literal meaning, but that very fact is what makes it the verbal equivalent of a shrug: the most that can be done is to acknowledge the current state of events.
Yet convention is an ineluctable component of language indeed, the only potentially original things in the list itself are the writer’s unusual errors of grammar and (especially) punctuation. Literally (and atomically) every word is an established convention, which is what makes them comprehensible to readers. Idiomatic phrases are linguistic units semantically very similar to words, albeit composite at the lexical level.
Hassinger, who is originally from Los Angeles and once taught at the arts center in the Watts Towers where Otis took classes during his childhood, has said, “When I make work, all of me is contained within it. Of course I embrace the feminist struggle, of course I acknowledge the horrors of racism, but my work to this point has been more about timelessness. I want my work to offer an experience to look, to see, to contemplate.”
What a waste of energy this was. I was hoping it was going to be funny but this jerk is serious about this list? The moron who wrote this list just wants to feel smarter than other people. I'll tell you what smart guy let's compare W7s for the last few years and see who feels smart then.
The college’s social media. Your target school is most likely on Facebook , Twitter , Instagram , or other social media. Follow them to see what they are posting about. Exciting new campus development? Some professors in the news? Interesting events, clubs, or activities?
Ouch! It's a shame when you try to insult someone's grammar & word usage & while doing so, you spell a simple word like 'lose' incorrectly! What a profound statement you ended your comment with. I always suspected that people who are deaf and/or mute are just dumb.
