Is it possible to remove the words YES/NO from our vaculabury?
Is it possible to remove those two words from our vaculabury? some might asked why, would they want too, what do you all think?
i doubt it's possible and i wouldn't want to. it would be like trying to say maybe to everything. political correctiveness is like that and i will never be politically correct.
I highly doubt that is possible. It seems we have used those two words for hundreds of years so its basiclally hardwired into our brain. We learn it when we grow up and its hard not to say it.
Not without coming across as wishy-washy. It's why many politicians aren't trusted.
People want a definite answer.
It's those key words, every language has in some form. That everyone would find some difficulty to be without. In fact, these two words are more likely to be learned by those who don't speak English. Just as many English speakers are more likely to learn the yes/no equivalents of another language before traveling abroad.
Although, there are plenty of substitutes to 'yes/no.' But, since the words already exist, many people would probably prefer typing yes/no over affirmative/negative (among other variances). But not always. I often hear more variety in yes/no varieties spoken then I do see written.
So, it's here to stay. No need to change what works so well.
watch pollitics,.... it would seem that simple ol' yes and no have dissapeared from the laguage already.
Certainly it is possible, we have plenty of other words in the language that mean very similar things, and are possibly even more accurate than the simple "yes" and "no" answers. The problem is, then people would actually have to expand their vocabulary to find the most appropriate word for their answer, which isn't quite as easy and therefore would never have widespread appeal.
It is definitely possible to remove yes and no from your vocabulary. In fact saving your marriage or serious relationship may depend on it, to a certain extent. When couple's are distressed emotionally, they must learn how to listen for and locate core-relationship needs that have been frustrated. The best way to do this is through asking clarifying questions that are open-ended,- questions that don't easily lead to yes or no answers.
I failed to understand why on God's green earth anyone would want to do that. These words are absolutes and should be used as such. "Can I have a drink of water"....Yes! Can I play in the street....No! Some things in too many instances do not warrant an explanation or a substantiation. It is just fact. Too many of us today avoid telling a child "no" because we feel compelled to explain it. There is no explanation...it's "no". When the time for discussion comes, you will let them know. When parents decide to be parents, they start to understand that aspect...because the child does not...you have to help them until they can. If they cannot understand the absolute aspects of "Yes" or "No", I seriously doubt they will understand why you want them to listen to you drone on for the next fifteen minutes attempting to make yourself feel good while you reinforce the word "No". Give me a break...WB
I don't think its possible. These two short and simple words we have been using every single day since our childhood. I really don't see any good reason to have these removed.
No it is not pos... touche, I see what you did there.
only if it's yep and naw- God forbid! We can't replace them. They're the foundations of communication.
Is this some sort of trick question?
If yes, then I say yes.
If no, then I say no.
Just try Darknlovely, Ask us that question again without using those two words.
We can't even answer your question positively without using one of them!
Words like 'yes' and 'no' are necessary in language, we couldn't manage without them. Could use 'affirmative' and 'negative' instead but this still boils down to 'yes' and 'no'.
