nordic-at-heart: Today on “rules of English language I didn’t realise were a thing until someone pointed it out”: Why tock-tick does not sound right to your ears ver wondered why we say gin-material-purpose noun. So you can have a lovely little old rectangular green French silver whittling knife. But if you mess with that word order in the slightest you'll sound tick-tock, not tock tick, or ding-dong, not dong. ding; King Kong, not Kong King? Turns out it is one of the unwritten rules of English that na- tive speakers know without knowing like a maniac" The rule, explains a BBC article, is: "If there are three words then the order has to go I, A, O. If there are two words then the first is I and the sec- ond is either A or O. Mish mash, chit-chat, dilly-dally shilly-shally tip top, hip-hop, lip-flop, tic tac, sing song, ding dong, King Kong, ping pong That explains why we say "little green men" not "green little men," but "Big Bad Wolf" sounds like a gross violation of the "opinion (bad)-size (big) noun (wolf" order It won't, though, if you recall the first rule about the I-A-O order That rule seems inviolable: "All four of a horse's feet make exactly the same sound. But we always, always say clip-clop, nev There's another unwrittern rule at work in the name Little Red Riding Hood, says the article. er clop-clip." g. This rule even has a techni- cal name, if you care to know it-the rule of ablaut reduplica- tion-but then life is simpler knowing that we know the rule Adjectives in English abso O lutely have to be in this order: opinion-size-age-shape-colour-ori without knowing it. PLAY IT BY EAR: If a word sequence sounds wrong, it is probably wrong For more: BBC nordic-at-heart: Today on “rules of English language I didn’t realise were a thing until someone pointed it out”

Cause you might got, a raindrop in your eye, And heaven forbid they see you ory, As we fall in line. And about this time of every year, The line will go to the ocean pier And walk right off into the sea, And then we fall asleep. (verse 2) Laving like a ghost you walle by everyone you know You say that you're fine but you have lost your sway and glow 8o I stopped by to let you know And as we near the end of land And our ooean graves are just the Band I ask mysolf the question why, I fall in line And then out of the corner of my eye I aee a spaceship in the slky, (chorus) And hear a voice inside my head, "Pollow me instead" (bridge) And then the wages of war will start, Inside my head with my counterpart, And the emotionless marchers will ohant the phrase, Would you let me know your plans tonight Cause I just won't let go tal we both pee the light. And I have nothing else left to Bay But I will listen to you all day, yes I will. This line's the only wa And then I start down the sand, My eyes are focused on the end of land, But again the voice inside my head, Says "follow me instead" (ahorus) Take me up, Beal the door Idon't want to march here anymore I realize that this line is dead So I'll follow you instead. 8o then you put me back in my place So I might start another And once again I will be, In a march to the sea. 0 He stays home from work this time. He never really I don' fall slow like I used to, I fall straight down, But the muffs on your ears will cater your fears You're But now he's just watching the back ofhis eyes. And I just don't say what you want to hear But they lie when they blame it on the times. And I don't believe in talking just to breathe, Open the slits in your face and start your day You don't have much time to make your slits look alright I want to fall inside your ghoet, And flll up every hole inside my Sometime we will die and sonetimes we will ly away Either way you're by my side until my dying days, I want to crack the door so I can just fall out. You reached in the back and buckled up your heart And if I'm not there and I'm far away I said, Look in the mirror and ask your soul if you're alright. Don't be afraid, I eaid don't be afraid, We're going home It was a little dark so he held a makeshit toroh I want to strip myself of breath, A breathless plece of death I've He crept in her room and stayed there for the night We pick songs to sing, remind us of things that no body oares And honestly we're probably more suiaidal than ever now If you decide to live by, what you think's wrong and what's right, Your weeping will oreep in head and you'll cry We can tate a part our very heart and the light will set you free, So the hearse ran out of gas, the passenger person grabbed a map And the driver inside devised a new route to save the past, And checked his watoh and grabbed a cab, A beautifully planned taxi cab, the cab, Had a cleared out back and two men started to unpack. Driving once again and now this time there were three men, And then I heard one of them say, "I know the night will turn to grey, I know the stars will start to fade when all the darkness fades away, We had to steal him from his fate so he could see another day". And then I aracked open my box, someone must have picked the lock, A little light revealed the spot, where my inger nails had fought, Then I pushed to open more, pushing up againat the door, Then I sat up off the floor and found the breath I was searching for. There they were, three men up front All I saw were backs of heads, And then I asked If I'm alive and well, or am I dreaming dead. Then one turned around to say And time will fly by and the sky will cry as light is fading we repeat the same routine as we will please Please think about why you can't sleep in the evening But for now you told me to hold this jar And when I looked inside I saw it held your heart, And please don't be afraid of what your soul is really thinking Your soul knows good and evil, your soul knows both sides And it's time you pick your battle, and I promise you this is popcandy: from Reddit: a lyric book for self-titled originally sold at concerts back in 2010
