Default 'Loser' vs 'Looser'!

Nothing irks me more than the misspelling of lose vs loose. To hone our reader's skills better as an editor it compels me to distinguish between the two.

So here you go:

LOOSE: His pants are loose. As in tar pants loose.
LOSE: His pants are lose. As in tar pants haray geche.

LOOSE: We will loose india bd series. As in we will give some window to let the selectors work out the india bd series,.
LOSE: We will lose india bd series. As in we will get our ax whopped.

LOSER: He is getting loser. as in he is becoming idumb
LOOSER: He is getting looser. as in he is becoming more drunk or from a gay perv pov. the jama is getting looser. chiH!

So there folks. That rounds up difference between a loser and a looser.

If you achieve closure you'll be closer to attaining inner piece.

On a cricket forum, I get peeved about he following:

He balled stamp to stamp and almost hit the bell.

You don't ball. You bowl a ball. Of course, you might bawl if you get hit for 6 sixes in a row.

Those three sticks on the ground? They are not stamps. Stamps are what you lick and put on an envelop. Those are called stumps.

And of course, those two things on top of the STUMPS you want to dislodge are called bails and not bells.

If anyone uses this term in front of me, I usually knock them upside the head so that they start hearing bells in their head.

Two other common mistakes here on BC that gets my dander up. What's a dander? Look it up.

Gong instead of gang. Gong is the big round metal thing that you hit with a hammer to make a sound, while gang is what most people mean here - the organized group of criminals.

Congrates - NO, no, no! The short form is congrats. NO E! That so grates on my nerves.

Caveat: I realize that for most of us, English is not the first language and all mistakes are excusable but there is no harm in learning the correct way.

Where do get this stuff? I mean really? You are not that old yet.

Stump is DW's daughter's username at BC. You, as an Admin should have remembered that.

Also, Stamp is something notary public/principal uses to acknoledge a document or signature is real copy. Life a je koto principal'er sign koirey stamp marlam. dosh taka diye mohammadpur bazar thekey stamp banaisilam. Senior, classmates, junior shobai amar kasey ashto stamp'er jonno. Ameirca'tey ashar agey stamp ta ar ek bodmaas'er kasey diye ashchilam. Porompora !!!!

"You say eether and I say eyether,
You say neether and I say nyther;
Eether, eyether, neether, nyther,
Let's call the whole thing off!
You like potato and I like potahto,
You like tomato and I like tomahto;
Potato, potahto, tomato, tomahto!
Let's call the whole thing off!
But oh! If we call the whole thing off,
Then we must part.
And oh! If we ever part,
Then that might break my heart!
So, if you like pajamas and I like pajahmas,
I'll wear pajamas and give up pajahmas.
For we know we need each other,
So we better call the calling off off.
Let's call the whole thing off!"

Why do people in Bangladesh pronounce 'Project' as 'ProZect'? Almost everyone does it - including the newsreaders - why? why? why?

Many Bangalis have issues with Z vs J, BH v V, Ph v F, as well as s and sh.

These are called sibilants or stridents and in most languages there is a trend towards one or the other.

There is NO f or v sound in Bangla just as there is no PH or BH sound in English.

While you do hear many say fool for ফুল , it really should be phool.

On the other hands, Westerners have difficulties with saying ভালবাসা , which ends up sounding like valobasha or balobasha. Of course, in some Bengali dialects the word is also pronounced as valobasha.

Haha. Note my post just above yours

However, whether V is wrong not would depend on how we define Bangla transliteration using Roman alphabets. Since we do not have the /v/ sound in Bangla, we could, for typographical simplicity, say that V would be pronounced as /bh/ when we transliterate Bangla.

LMAO Sohel! I do believe you have got it! Missed out on this gem of a thread. I always get a laugh when someone is allegedly "balling good".
