Every now and then, back when I was new at blogging, I would blindly open my big dictionary and, keeping my eyes closed, touch the page with my finger. Whatever word was under my finger, I would write my blog posting about it. (for example, see my blog posting: http://dizzydick.blogspot.com/2010/08/words.html ) I actually learned a few things when I did that. But I am not going to do that today. I was just wondering what word I use the most. Well, since my hearing went bad and especially when I am not wearing my hearing aids, I would say that the word I use most is "what".
The word "what" is a fascinating word with a lot meanings and uses. It can be used as a noun, adverb, adjective, conjunction and interjection. And then there are (my favorite) the idioms. What's an idiom, you may ask? Well, I looked it up and this is what it says an idiom is: is a combination of words that has a figurative meaning, due to its common usage. Here are some examples:
an expression of disinterest or contempt.
either a question of why or a scolding or punishment.
this is informal for who or what.
slang for "What's that you say?"
What Have You
other things of the same kind.
There is also a contractions (what's) for either "what is" or "what does", depending on how it is used in a sentence.
So now you know what word I use the most. Now, you all tell me what word you use the most and also have a great day, you hear?
