Ok, I’ve always prided myself on being able to understand unfamiliar vernacular (ie I read Shakespeare early, and I can understand my French friends when they speak garbled English), but lately I am getting worried. I seem unable to understand written messages which other people apparently understand quite well. I don’t know if I’m going crazy, or what. This has happened a few times here on the SD, but the most recent occurance was just now while talking to my fiancé on AIM. A few of the message hes sent me had the word “say” in front of it, like:
Apparently, this was not intentional, and when asked about it, he said:
I told him that I did not understand, and to please speak English. He said that he was, and being quite clear to boot. Now, I ask you, does his message make any sense to you? I still don’t understand it, except that he reworded it for me. Also, is my message clear? Are the words in the correct order? Please, I’m afraid that something may be wrong with me.
