I'm having some kind of writer's cramp right now, both with my own post but also when I want to express myself in the comments to others. I think the worst is my rusty lack of adjectives. When I want to tell someone that I like their photo SOOOO much it feels like the only word I always use is:
and that word has always given me some very strange thoughts. I guess that the Beau -part is French, but the ironic with the last part of the word Ful is that it means ugly in swedish....
Translating verbs is much easier, the adjectives can mean so many different things to people depending on ages and where they grew up. I think that there's also a fashion style with adjectives. I remember some years ago when the youngsters here in Sweden beguine to describe things they liked very much as "asom". It was very popular to say it and I didn't understand that word (had never learned it in school...) But I soon realized that it was an English word spelled awesome. When I grew up we used a word that my parents didn't say and it was Cool, but I think it was used like awesome today.
Pop music is a perfect way for children to learn English words as they usually repeat the words many times. A word that every kid here couldn't have missed is Amazing, because of our music competition this year. I've written before that Loreen won with Euphoria but I think the song Amazing with Danny took the second place. His show with lamps in the clothes was a bit special so if you have some minutes and by the way, I think he also have the word awesome in the text.
