words, blobs, birthday and other important things today…sanoja, synttärit ja muita tärkeitä päivän juttuja…

as you know English is not my mother tong…hm…
that’s why I have a dictionary on the table – I’ll try to check all the new words,
really learn them, remember…
ooh, but grammar, I will never ever understand or learn the grammar, whatever the language!
I love reading, writing, words…
I try to learn…I really try…

The Difference Between “While” and “Whilst”

A reader asks:

“what is the difference between while and whilst?”

Both while and whilst have been in the language for a very long time.
While was in use in Old English; whilst is a Middle English development of while.
As conjunctions they are interchangeable in meaning, but whilst has not survived in standard American English.

I waited while breakfast was finished.

Latest funny one, in my mouth/mind, is ‘blob’… Mytho asked me to say

blob blog” 3 x in the row, I can’t – can you? try! Easy? 🙂

if you want to see s-c-a-r-y movie trailer from 1958 ‘The Blob’ go to Mythopolis’s blog

Happy birthday ‘baby’!
He’s living now in China, Beijing… Ni hao!
Firstborn brother is celebrating with you –

Onnea Kiinaan, Beijingiin,
nuorimmalle pojallemme,
joka nykyisessä kotikaupungissaan viettää tänään synttäreitään!

  1. Mytho; hahah ‘tong’ typical for me – i write like i say the word..pls correct if you see similar mistakes in the future! Thanks!Nicole; blob, blob… I don’t have a brother!It was my ‘baby’s’ birthday and HIS brother is visiting now in China….blob, blob…I’ve had problems with connection, with explorer, with mouse and blob, letters…i can write Ö and Ä but i have to change ctrl+1 or 2 and argh! i’m just too lazy!

  2. OK, I am officially starting to despise blogger and google 🙁I tried to leave a comment and I had to reload the page so many times with error messages that my original message is gone now 🙁My email’s on strike again too.Mpf…OK, let me try to get together what I originally wrote:Happy birthday to your dear brother :)!!And nope, I could not say Blob blog three times, I can barely write it 😉And I don’t like grammar, no matter what language 🙂Cheers 😉

  3. Happy Blob – ah birthday….to your brother 😀Nope, I couldn’t say blob blog 3 times in a row, I can barely write it.And I hate grammar, no matter the language 🙂

  4. Interesting blog! I never liked the word “whilst”…In the Southern states here, “while” is pronounced more like “wail” as in “Wail, I reckon its agonna rain.” Your English is much better than you might think. : ) However regarding “mother tong” I think tongue is the word you are looking for.As per blob blog 3X , once you have mastered that you can work on “rubber baby buggy bumper”…3X please…faster! : )
