    2. I agree with you re: language being an evolving thing. Also re: memorization. I have even been known to point out that one could theoretically teach a person with an IQ of 80-ish to memorize E=MC2, it wouldn't make them "smart". Memorization = smarts is something that has always irritated me, to put it mildly.

    In Vent, I have caught myself probably 10+ times either starting to spell it 'yeu' or seeing it that way in my head before I spell it and having to consciously spell it 'you'. This is entirely down to you because I don't know anyone else who spells it like that. I don't know why, but I am very prone to picking up things like spelling, pronunciation, little phrases etc. from other people. Put me in a room with someone for 10 days and I'm probably going to come out sounding a LOT more like them than when I went in. I don't mind this, I just find it interesting.
    It'd be a different case if you were locked in a room with someone you despised.

    I was looking forward to an explanation to yeu and whot, I thought it was an amusing test, or an 'up yours' to english.

    ah, i missed this in October when you posted it. I like your Yue or Yeu, or well however you spell it.... It has become part of the Fi definition of Katsuni in my mind.
