Fun with english words

    weblogposted 8 years ago

    It can be anything, I'm just trying to start with some samples:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    LOVE => DOVE => DIVE=> HIVE => HAVE => HATE (Love to Hate)


    "Violence" and "Nice Love" have same set of alphabets.



    Some words have no vowels in them. examples: rhythm, sky, fly
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Or you can explain the funny, interesting history behind some english words.


    So, I'm expecting more from fellow hubbers. Please participate and contribute. Thank you all.

    I know I am not following the rules, but these are a couple of my favorite words:

    Clinomania: an intense need/desire to stay in bed

    Ergophobia: a fear of work

    Weblog, it is not really Latin.

    It is called "pig Latin", and you create is by taking the first letter off each word, putting it at the end, and adding the "ay" sound.

    itebay = ite b(ay) = bite

    emay = e m (ay) = me

    And so on.

    A palindrome is a word or sentence that reads the same forward as it does backward.

    Here are some sentences as palindrome:

    As I pee, sir, I see Pisa!

    Dammit, I'm mad!

    Draw, O coward!

    Madam, I'm Adam.

    Was it a car or a cat I saw?

    Here is something I can think of from the 1971 movie Sleeper.  Woody Allen asks Diane Keaton if you spell God backwards what do you get?
