    Yes but I was referring to this.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    This is one of those English insanities that drive me crazy! We've got these two homophones that are spelled differently...and neither of those spellings actually reflect the way I've heard anyone say the words!

    I-ul =/= aisle or isle

    - People who talk to fast or too quietly. You people chit-chat at 900 RPM all day long while I'm sitting here staring at the ceiling, then the time comes for us to make individual speeches in front of everyone else, I annunciate well and you suck. Get some practice, you're a horrendous lector.

    - People who collectively refuse to cooperate with their instructors because it violates their social power structures. You have one job. You're told what to do, you're expected to see it from your instructor's perspective and give your best effort, and instead you deliberately evade learning any lesson and take every opportunity to cut corners. Do you think it makes you cool? Do you seriously think you're "edgy" or whatever you call it?!?!? No. You're a fat freckled idiot, you have the grammar of cro-magnun man, your damn hat's backwards and you look like an idiot punk. Cut the faux-testosterone crap, quit pretending you're some hoodlum when you're not, see eye-to-eye with the instructor and just do the damn project the way you're supposed to.

    - Dumb fat kids who wouldn't grow a brain cell if you hit them. And they waddle back and forth when they walk. And their faces don't move enough, and they look like bulldogs.
    This only applies to stupid fat people, not all fat people.

    I KNOW YOU'RE REFERRING TO THE GROCERY STORE, PRPL. YOU KNOW HOW TO SPELL "AISLE". LOTS OF PEOPLE SPELL IT "ISLE", BECAUSE THEY'RE DUMB AND DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

    ... so that when they're written we can tell the difference.

    and neither of those spellings actually reflect the way I've heard anyone say the words!

    I-ul =/= aisle or isle
    Norman Conquest, 1066: bunch of French guys took over England, and it had an enormous effect on English vocabulary. "Isle" is from the French word for island. The 's' is silent because it was silent in French; French is full of silent letters. L'Académie française got rid of the 's' and added a circumflex accent on the 'i' to make the modern-day île; they got rid of lots of silent letters and added circumflex accents to the vowels in front in the 18th century.

    "Aisle" also comes from French, the word for "wing" as in wing of a building; the modern French spelling is aile. (Aile and île aren't pronounced the same in French.)


    Bitching about English spelling might be one of my pet peeves because the spelling makes a lot more sense if you know the etymology.
