there's a girl in my english class...and we're reading a book that used the word "muff". she did not know what a muff was.

she then asked, "what is a muff?". the teacher replied, "well...only ladies have it...and you can put things in it...and it's important for babies..." and she still didn't get it so she finally said "it's another word for a woman's vagina."

later in the period, she asked what "buxom" meant. and it was another fiasco.

discuss.

Lack of semantic knowledge isn't equatable with so-called 'Singrish', so you'll have to explain the title of this thread.

Other than that, not knowing words in school is always grossly over-exaggerated. When I was in primary school I heard the word 'twat' and used it at home, to the expected reception. Following that I avoided repeating any slang words at home in case they were swear words - because I didn't know what they all meant :-)

But not knowing something in the adult world is far less embarassing.

I'm not sure what my point is, but I'm bored...

I was having an internet argument with this one n00b. I was all like "OMFG pwned!" and she responeded just like this. "can you speak engish?"

I wasn't there, but the prof corrected her.

I'm more impressed with some of my customers; they tell me something and I'm thinking, "riiight, you don't have the faintest idea of what you're talking about." At least about half of 'em will tell me that they don't in advance so I can nod and smile with understanding instead of criticism.

Yes, that's what I meant to say. Someone probably edited my post to make me look silly... anyway, I had to study it (briefly) during a module once. It's generally considered a true dialect of English, even a creole, so it's more than just a nickname. It's because - well, let's just say it doesn't just mean 'l=r' - there's a lot more to it than that. But this is (ironically ¬) off topic.

What's a "buxom"? :dozey:

Not knowing things ain't bad nor a proof of stupidity. And asking for something you don't know is totally normal. Even if it's something literally everybody knows. Once you have kids you might be exposed to more "what is" questions in one day than the number of sexual contacts you'll have in your whole life, Mr. Mole. Yes, it'll be definitely more than 5 questions.

On the other hand, next time you'll explain everything to her, and if you do it clever eunuch, you can add that up to 6-7 time to beat. XD

What? My posts always are totally coherent and insightful, you all have no clue.

In addition to sounded mildly retarded by saying "point bar six", yes. I can see where it came from (the notation for a repeating decimal is just a bar over the pattern that repeats), but that ****'s retarded. Say "point six repeating" or start truncating or rounding; ideally you'd put the decimal into fraction form for greater accuracy.

Anti-rape female condom

Main article: Anti-rape female condom

In 2005, inventor Sonette Ehlers introduced the "Rapex", an anti-rape female condom which can be inserted into the vaginal canal like a diaphragm. The product is lined with microscopic barbs which attach to a rapist's penis and which must be surgically removed. In an article about the Rapex, Ehlers stated that she was inspired to invent the device after meeting a victim who told her, "If only I had teeth down there."[2]

well, the girl is 18 years old if that counts for anything...Nope. See, at least half the world doesn't know, regardless how old, simply because it isn't their language. Where is it written that you have to know what the word "muff" means when you're 18? I mean, this doesn't mean she don't know what a vagina is. I mean "muff" sounds like "hairy" (to me at least), and in no way I want to connect that to vagina. Meh. I bet she's also the best **** in that class and she will clean up your friend afterwards. That is the only thing that counts.

Oh, man, and yay for the teacher who is afraid to say "it's a synonym for vagina" right out in a class of 18 year olds. I mean, "you can put things in it".. how old is he? 14? XD
