Coolest thing ever!

  1. Mar 22, 2005 #1
    ok, first, for anyone who thought this was actually going to be about something cool... i'm very sorry... i have a very warped idea of coolness...

    ANYWAYS

    one sentence, only 3 words, and it can be written 3 ways!!

    We are not.
    We aren't.
    We're not.

    Same three words! thats so crazy!

    ...Just thought i'd share....

    You really don't have much of a life, do you? :wink:


    Actually, that is kinda interesting in a "I'm ashamed to admit it" sort of way.

    You're not.

    They are not.
    They aren't.
    They're not.

    Multiple contractions amuse me. For example,

    You'd've done something.
    I'd've done it too!
    But he wouldn't've done it at all!

    You people are so lame.

    ...
    ...

    Did you know there's actually a noun for throwing someone out of a window!
    Defenestration, that's so cool. Quick, someone use that in their sig!

    Haha, thanks evo...
    how about

    I would not.
    I wouldn't.
    I'd not.

    I could have.
    I could've.
    I'd have.

    Its looking like "not" is the common thing... hmm... We should all just say I'dn't or We'ren't, then we wouldn't have this issue at all.

    Know what else is cool... I'd could mean tons of different things; I could, I would, I should, I did... contractions are weird! Maybe i did sleep through 4th grade... (its probably a good thing i'm not an english major, imagine how goofy i'd look getting excited about this in class... )

    [edit] dammit, i took too long to post.... hurkly said the double contraction thing first.......

    That's not just a multiple contraction, it's a spasm.

    We'ren't.

    Y'aren't

    Th'aren't

    :biggrin:

    Then

    I'dn't

    I'd've

    :biggrin:

    wasn't - wesn't - wisn't - wosn't - wusn't and sometimes wysn't :biggrin:

    Then the old stand by

    coulda - woulda - shoulda

    No - more like grammatical infarction.

    Actually, the consistent form would be "I amn't" and my little brother use to say it this way when he was learning to talk. He'd also say "I can't want to." I liked this so still say this every now and then myself. :smile:

    could become W'ain't.

    and "I amn't" would become "I'mn't".

    Are we not?
    Aren't we?
    We aren't?
    We're not?

    this is very dumb....but I'll have my fun too:

    Off topic sort of, but there are 3 ways to pronounce the name Andrea.
    Spelled Phonetically: Ahhn-drea, AAn-drea, and Ahhn-dree-ya....
