Happy Frackin' Friday!
Have another great guest post for you. In honor (should I use honour?!) of our time up north, I have a great Frackin' Friday from SaucyKodz, a blogger out in small town Atlantic Canada.
Hope ya'll enjoy!! Take it away, Lilly!
Everyone in their own little corner of the world, city or town use slang words – kinda makes words less formal, eh. Slang relaxes the mouth and allows for a more comfortable speaking process...breaking down or creating your own words, does take away from “speaking proper english”, however, who’s to say “our slang” isn’t “proper english”, or whatever language another might create slang words in, right?
I figure it’s all proper, no matter how you use it, and I would have to learn an awful lot of slang, if I were to visit you all, right. Adding “right” or “eh” at the end of your sentence is a wee bit of Canadian slang – instead of saying “Isn’t that right”, all you have to do, is add “right or eh” at the end of your sentence, right!
Slang also allows for more of an identity of a person or place, when speaking, right. You can personalize slang and talk how you want to talk, as opposed to following standard English protocol.
I really enjoy “Frackin’ Friday” and have some good giggles, and have taken some time to write down a few of ours. Hope you enjoy them.
