Did You Know?
Each 1 Teach 1...IT'S TIME TO BUILD.
The 1849, 1854, and 1859, editions of Webster's Dictionary almost say it all. American, the noun, "ORIGINALLY applied to the aboriginals, or COPPER-COLORED races, found here by the Europeans." Copper-Colored is PENNY colored. When I place a clean, or tarnished penny, on the brown hand side of my hand, it describes me.
Now go look it up in a more modern version...has it changed? if so why?
Drop a line anytime you want to share...
Here are a few more words that you might find interesting,notice by changing the first letter from capital to lower case the entire definition changes...here are a couple of examples;
Apocrypha -vs- apocrypha (biblical)
Cititzen -vs- citizen (Law)
we also have word play known as Semantics such as;
Rec'reation -vs- re'creation
We also have words that have the exact same meaning,yet they are in different languages..such as;
Hebrew,Israel and Shabazz.All meaning "Gods Elect".
These are just a few examples of how deceptive the so called "English"language of America truly is.If you have some knowledge that you(the reader)would like to share,please feel free to send it via email so we all can begin to evolve in wisdom at the same rate of speed.May The Most High bless you for your efforts.
