Engleza de joi/ Fuse

Fuse = a long piece of string or paper which is lit to make a bomb or a firework explode.

“The Possible’s slow fuse is lit
By the Imagination.” – Emily Dickinson

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, laugh, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

  2. Love ED. Talking with you makes me appreciate just how complex English is. We mother tongue speakers do take a lot for granted. Check out all the various definitions … https://www.google.ca/search?client=tablet-android-lenovo&q=fuse+define&spell=1&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwimtPzduI7VAhUP3YMKHXybAO0QBQgZKAA&biw=800&bih=1280 (not sure if that link will work universally) 😊

      • I find homographs quite interesting. Not sure if they are quite as common in non-English languages. 🌈

        We have them too and in large “quantities” 🙂 I always tell my students to let themselves be engulfed by the English sentence and not to be bothered by the meaning of it word for word. Then they can infer the right meaning of the word in context.
        What we don’t have are the homophones. I have a section of my English course dedicated to them.

      • Oh yeah. When I was in India speaking Bengali, I found that the best way to get the meaning was just be holistic about it. I was never an expert in that language but made lots of friends. I find that the real dimwits among us have to “spy and scrape” (William James) and study every little bit of spoken or written material to try to figure out an intended meaning. The brighter people just get it without all that secondary activity. The former are many. The latter are few.
