    But then you’d think it would be “whyfore art thou”.

    The “whys and wherefores” of the English language can be tricky, but I think they are fun, and interesting.

    That’s one of those things that has actually stuck with me in the 30+ years since high school.

    Yep…wherefore doesn’t mean where. Wherefore means WHY!

    Pibgorn is running through the F.Scott Fitzgerald version of Romeo and Juliet. Here is his take on the balcony scene

    I’d go punch Charlie Brown just for the heck of it.

    And here I always though she was lamenting that he was a Romeo and an enemy and how things could have been so much different if he were not. After all, what’s in a name? But a FAMILY on the other hand, is harder to get away from.

    I guess Romeo and Juliet relates to Shakesphere rather than Christmas and the Bible (if you count the birth of Jesus).

    The interrogative form of “therefore” is “wherefore”, just as the interrogative form of “there” is “where”.

    Never mind the why and wherefore. I think I’ll go listen to H.M.S. Pinafore.

    @Kip W

    Are you the model of a modern major gen-er-al?? Or is that “Pirates of Penzance”?

    Wherefore does indeed mean ‘why.’ Don’t ask wherefore it meaneth that. It just does. Maybe we can see why it isn’t used much anymore.

    In Shakespeare’s time it wasn’t subtle at all. Everybody knew what it meant. We don’t know now because the word fell out of use.
