So (or apparently), this is a THING now...Or perhaps:
So, that's not a THING anymore...I'm still deciding if I love or hate this phrase. Well, to be honest, I hate the phrase because of it's inability to express anything and the fact that our youth have so willingly embraced the ambiguity of this phrase. But also to be honest, I have used this phrase in the classroom. Because, to be honest, I want my students to listen to me - and using their vernacular is key to this. And also because, to be honest, I want them to think that I'm a cool, "older" person.
Anyway, I am going to institute "That's a Thing Thursday," here on the blog.
This week's TATT: pronunciation.
Tomato, tomato: [toe-MAE-toe, toe-MAH-toe...]
Apparently, we have been pronouncing a city in Mexico wrong my entire life.
See that little "gem" of a city - the one that is on the west coast, found toward the lower third of the coastline?
Not sure which coastal gem, I refer to? I spent Spring Break 2001 here:
You know, Acapulco.
Oh, did you think it was pronounced - Ah-cah- POH-coh?
Well, it's not.
Pretty much just how it's spelled. Emphasis on the "ool."
Pronouncing words just how they're spelled. Apparently, that's a thing now.
