• What is the world UP to?

    Engelska, gillade det :PP

    Lovers of the English language might enjoy this. It is yet another example of why people learning English have trouble with the language.  Learning the nuances of English makes it a difficult language.

    (But then, that’s probably true of many languages.)There is a two-letter word in English that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is ‘UP.’

    It is listed in the dictionary as being used as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

    It’s easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?
    At a meeting, why does a topic come UP ? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends and we use ! it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.
    At other times the little word has a real special meaning. People stirUP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UPexcuses.To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.

    And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is choked  UP.
    We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.We seem to be pretty mixed UPabout UP !

    To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP , look the word UPin the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes  UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add  UP to about thirty definitions

    If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many waysUP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don’t giveUP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

    When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP . When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP.

    One could go on & on, but I’ll wrap it UP , for now…….. my time is UP, so time to shut UP!
    Oh…one more thing:
    What is the first thing you do in the morning & the last thing you do at night?
    U    P

    Don’t screw UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book.

    Now, I’ll shut UP
