The Strange Case of the English Language
I've been thinking (it took a while); you know, words are essential for communication. However, there are some words that, to me, sound silly and/or redundant. These are words that make you think "What's the point of this word?" One such word that I can think of is 'guffaw'. Another one is 'chortle'. Why do these words exist? We already have 'laugh' and 'chuckle'!
Are there any weird words that you can think of that just seem strange or redundant to the point where you think "Why does this exist? What were they thinking when they made this word? Why is this crazy guy asking me this question (some of you are probably thinking this)?" Personally, I like asking myself questions such as this. I just thought I should share this one with you.
