An opinion only: England was at one time ruler of a large portion of the world. In these areas you had to speak some English to be able to have any dealings with the government. There was no allowance for mother tongues and indigenous languages in those days. This gave a large number of English spea…kers spread over the globe, in Australia, India, Canada, South Africa and parts of the far east, as well as in the USA. The fact that the USA was English-speaking meant that when the mass media came into existence much broadcasting was in English. English speakers also dominated the development of mass transport. This is still a powerful motivation to learn English - pop music, Hollywood films, US TV series etc are all in English. Most pilots and ships captains use English, and much of the internet. There is no opposite pressure on English speakers to learn other languages. Agreed I'd just add that most of the countries where English is spoken as the native language are also propserous and engage heavily in internstational trade. Being a native speaker of English can be very isolating. ( Full Answer )
I do believe that "this" is a four letter word in the English language which is used as a preposition.
Usually, we just put the article 'a' before a noun, to show that there is just one, BUT if a word begins with a vowel (either a, e, i, o, or u) we put the article 'an' in front of it, EXCEPT if it doesn't sound like it begins with a vowel, such as we would not put- 'an unicorn', as unicorn sounds li…ke it begins with a 'y', so we saw 'a unicorn'.

Answer . The expression refers to a fatal weakness. Use it when you want to really dramatize or emphasize a trait or characteristic that someone has, one that has the power to bring him down. For example, suppose that a person who is otherwise very capable has a weakness for flattery. If you f…latter him, he becomes like putty in your hand. You can lead him around easily because he believes whatever compliments you shower on him. You might say that vanity is that person's Achilles heel. ( Full Answer )

Nigeria was part of the European slave trade, which Great Britaintook part in. Britain also controlled Nigeria for a time andattempted to convert natives to Christianity, which is why theEnglish language is used in Nigeria.
There isn't a really adequate answer to that. None of the unusual words - like "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" or "Floccinaucinihilipilification" count, as they are used often enough as examples. Literally the least used would be one that was used not at all, and there are thousands of example…s of those. The field in which they would come from would be some obscure branch of taxonomic science, where it was the latinate name for some rare bug or plant that no one cares about. Or some chemical compound with no application. If one wishes more pure English, and not simply some rare scientific term, one would look amongst the obsolete words that we no longer use, such as "abatude", in which one cuts a portion of a coin out, thus devaluing it. If one is wanting the least used word that is not scientific or obsolete, and further, still actually used, then you would still be out of luck, because there would be thousands of ties for least used. And really, no meaningful way of determining which is "the" least used. One study ranked the most commonly used words, and at number 86,800 was "conquistador". However, there are several hundred thousand other words that weren't listed. Myself, I would offer - with no proof - the word "cwm". Pronounced "koom", it means "from the valley". The only time I'm aware of it being used is in a holoalphabetic sentence that most people don't bother with. "Quartz glyph job vex'd cwm finks." contains every letter of the alphabet once and only once. So that word is used, but is certainly amongst the "least used". Perhaps it might be fairest to say that I offer that as "the word that is least used amongst words that are still used." ( Full Answer )

Summary Yeats tells a story in verse. An old priest was weary and sad because most of his flock had died. He was sent for by a sick man, but fell asleep in his chair before answering the call. The stars multiplied and God talked to mankind. In the morning, Father Gilligan awoke with a start, realiz…ing that he had not done his duty. He rides to the sick man's house where his wife answers the door and says that the man has died. Father Gilligan is horrified and cries "mavrone!" until the woman thanks him for coming the previous night. He falls to his knees and thanks God for sending an angel down to do his work when he was too tired to do so. Analysis This poem takes a ballad form - a traditional form, usually sung, with regular, short stanzas that tell a story. It has a more overtly religious content than most of Yeats's poems. As a protestant who turned to theosophy and mysticism, Yeats usually stays away from Catholic themes. Yeats also usually stays away from the Irish language, which he uses in this poem when he writes, "mavrone!" which is the Irish, "mo bhron," a cry of grief. The poem not only speaks to the poverty of rural Ireland, but also to their extreme religiosity. The priest is horrified by the fact that he did not make it to the bedside of the sick man before he died because no one performed the rites of extreme unction, meaning in the Catholic tradition that the man did not die in a state of grace, and therefore cannot go to heaven. The divine intervention which caused this not to be the case is an affirmation of a loving, kind God. Yeats intends this ballad as an homage to the traditional poetry and legend of his country. He was a collector of similar Irish stories and songs and appreciated their immediate, naive beauty. Certainly this tale draws upon the character as well as the form of the traditional Irish ballad.

There are lots of different ways to use an apostrophe. First, you use it when you have shortened a word down to replace the letter you miss out.. Examples: Don't You'll We've They're. Then you also use it for when you are referring to something belonging to someone. Examples: Simon's c…oat Someone's lunch Martha's bag. If there is more than one person, you put the apostrophe AFTER the s.. Examples: Teachers' lounge Footballers' washroom Mothers' Day. This also happens when a name already has an s at the end.. Examples: Dickens' novels Jesus' life Hopkins' movie. I think that's just about it! Hope that was clear. ( Full Answer )

' The ' has two main uses. . First of all ' the ' is the 'definite article'. This means that the item identified by the following noun is a specific thing. For example, compare these two sentences: 1. Please give me the red apple . (Or Please give me the apple that is on the table… ) - The word 'the ' is called the 'definite article', and is used to restrict the request to a definite, defined, particular, specific thing. The request is not for any apple, but is for the particular apple that is identified in the sentence. 2. Please give me an apple . - The word ' an' here is the ' indefinite article'. ' An ' means 'one'. The request here is not for a specific apple, it is just for one apple, but it can be ANY apple! . Another usage of ' the ' is to identify someone or something as being quite unique. Listen to this conversation: First person: "I spoke to Tom Cruise yesterday." Second person: "Not THE Tom Cruise?" (Here the word THE is spoken with emphasis, i.e. as THEE, and not as the usual 'thuh') It is possible that the first person might have a friend who happens to be called Mr Thomas Cruise, but this 'Tom Cruise' sells newspapers outside the bus station, is very poor, not handsome, and is definitely NOT the famous film star! The second person only knows of Tom Cruise the film star, so he seeks clarification by asking if the first person is actually referring to THE Tom Cruise, (the fim star) or if is he talking about some 'ordinary' person who just happens to have the same name!

The word plunder was certainly used last year in the English language, and doubtless it was used more than once the year before.

Accent marks developed in many languages to denote different ways of pronouncing vowels (as I believe is the case with French) and marking cases where the stressed syllable differs from the general rules (as in Spanish). English, with its many linguistic influences, did not develop this system in i…ts written spelling, perhaps because it has an unusually high number of vowel sounds (not just a e i o u and y but the actual phonetic sounds, all 12, long and short vowels as well as dipthongs like the ai sound in "ride." Denoting all of these with a separate symbol simply isn't how the written language progressed, and would be a highly complex way of writing. English also doesn't have as rigid of emphasis rules as Spanish has, making it difficult to distinguish which words' stressed syllables should have accents in English. ( Full Answer )
