The Peculiarities of the english languageMy introduction to the oddities of the english language came quite early. Born in the usa to American parents, I moved to Kenya when I was 14 months old. From then until the age of 18, I was surrounded and educated by people of many different nationalities. My english teachers included a South African and a Canadian. Other teachers and classmates included British, Norwegian, australian, Ethiopian, Tanzanian, Kenyan and American. When I moved back to the US after high school, the english I was exposed to seemed in many ways to be a foreign language. I found the southern accent difficult to understand, and some of the expressions completely flummoxed me! Imagine my surprise when a 70 year old lady who may have weighed all of 80 pounds told me she was going to “carry me to the store!” – which I eventually realized meant she was going to take me to the store (she drove). It amused me when I learned that another well-known southern expression, “Bless your heart,” was frequently used to mean, “You are an idiot!” With that background, I had a great deal of sympathy for a coworker, an immigrant from Vietnam, who had his own unique take on the english language.
