    If this were animated with voice over, Opal would probably have selective hearing when it came to “sewer.”

    Better hope she doesn’t find a lawyer, or you’ll learn just what a great suer she really is.

    Within the sewing community on-line, they’re now referring to themselves as “sewists.”

    As a kid, I never understood much of English pronunciation, at it is my native language:

    Sew — ‘ew’ is pronounced ‘oh’ is one is dealing with needle and thread or with farming.Iron – is pronounced ‘ay-EARN’, not ‘i-RUN’.Pint – is pronounced with a long “i”, despite having two consonants after it [by rules in English, this should be a short sound], yet ‘hint’ (spelled similarly and having two consonants] is pronounced with a short ‘i’. sound.Rhythm – Rule I was taught early on: each syllable in a word has to have a vowel. Rhythm is pronounced with two syllables in speaking and most songs I’ve sung, yet would be spelled ‘rhy – thm’. is the ‘h’ moonlighting as a vowel?

    Just thoughts I’ve had since I was a child and have never gotten an answer for. Any ideas?

    If she was into cartooning, she would be a good drawer.

    abbybookcase: There are three ways in which languages get new words: French, German, or English.French: Turn it over to Academie Francaise and in a decade or so, they will have decided if it is a word; until then, it cannot be used in a legal document.German: Describe it in as few words as possible, knock out the spaces and cram the whole thing together. You have a word, but it is absurdly long.English: Look around and see who has a word for that; steal it and claim it is English, but keep the original Latin alphabet spelling. As a result, it will be horribly mispronounced.

    On resumes and job applications, I would describe one past job as “industrial sewing machine operator” or “industrial sew-er”.

    When I was a kid, the barber I went to had somewhat of a sense of humor. When it was my turn he would say, you’re next mon – sewer. Being a kid, it cracked me up every time.
