The electric pal

Lan­guage is a fun­ny thing. Some­ti­mes it’s more than wor­ds and some­ti­mes you can’t tell exact­ly what that actual­ly means. That’s why peop­le once tried to build up a way of sci­en­ti­fic speech. But that fai­led. Wor­ds aren’t made to be laid in chains.

So we have to tole­ra­te lin­gu­is­tic things which are hard to under­stand and deal with the risk to be irri­ta­ted by speakers that talk vague­ly on pur­po­se.

Still, the pro­blem of tal­king vague­ly gets to ano­t­her level when it’s done by women. Whe­re­as men use ambi­gui­ties for jokes, women use it for irri­ta­ti­ons:
