    Why are some cream, some christmas and some just plain loopy?


    What I mean really is...... why do we have so many words that sound or are spelt the same and yet nobody has yet found a use for the word jikliot?

    There lies my point!


    There are about 3 different meanings of the word sounding by/buy/bye for example. If one had been jikliot we wouldn't have to work as hard to distinguish the meaning.

    a good point, well made.

    one which i will certainly muse upon

    but just off the cuff maybe, just maybe it's because jikliot is a silly word and therefore doesn't deserve a meaning.

    Yeh but when are you gonna say ''I am going to by some .....'' or ''I am going to bye some...''
    Jikliot is a cool word though

    The whole point is that the word sounds the same even though its spelt differently & means different things!!! You're going to say those things, just not going to write them.

    Start a campaign for jikliot to be included in the Oxford English Dictionary!!

    Jikliot : the way I feel at this moment.

    I'll leave an element of mystery for you all, as nobody knows that!


    Maybe a little jiklioted?

    hehehe

    does it mean, by any chance, slightly tipsy after a couple of glasses of wine?

    Shocking behaviour! Not at all, sadly I was sober and was doing work. It was probably that making me crazy. . .

    New words are added to the English language all the time...
    Why not just make up a new word for one of the crackers, and we'll try to get everybody on tMP to start using it and soon enough it will be an official word.

    Some of my friends and I made up the English term "fatted-catted" to mean hung over (derive from a dutch expression - I think - justso I don't take all the credit). While not an official word/phrase yet, I have faith it will catch on ;)

    So lets short the word to Jikli (nobody will want to start usiing longer words), and tell us which cracker it should mean.

    We could always substitute "nuts" for "crackers": we may be nuts for doing it, but if I could get the idea into my nut, I could chew on a nut whilst considering it, tighten a nut on my bicycle whilst waiting, and then be careful of my **** as I climbed onto the saddle ;) :D :oops:
