If news is plural for new why is it not acceptable to say “These news are great” ?

Or, more importantly how do I refer to multiple news?

and why don’t we say, “That is great new?!”

I have to find out.

let us investigate

keamoose keamoose · Oct 10, 2020 at 9:51 am

I’m disappointed in the way English does this. You have to talk about pieces of news, or news items. 🙄😒😕 I feel like we need to invent the plural newses. It would be better. And then we could also have “a news”. https://www.espressoenglish.net/is-news-singular-or-plural/

tcr! tcr! · Oct 11, 2020 at 9:29 am

I hate “news items” more than jelly fish. The word “items” is vague and unexciting.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 11, 2020 at 9:37 am

The good news is, if you convince enough people, you can change the language. I’m thinking we could use 60s Batman sound effect words to give an indication of news excitement level. How about a news kapow? News bam? News biff?

keamoose keamoose · Oct 11, 2020 at 9:39 am

Oh, news biff: I’m hearing more people refer to “jellies” nowadays instead of jelly fish, if that helps.

I think “gurgitate” should be a word since one can “regurgitate”

We definitely need to start using that.

I’ll just be relaxing in the gurges with a glass of wine if you need me.

keamoose keamoose · Sep 30, 2020 at 12:03 pm

If you ingurgitate wine in the gurges, you’re likely to regurgitate. From the twirling.

FWIW acronym expanded

tcr! · Sep 17, 2020 at 12:14 pm

I don’t know why my eyes read FWIW as for what I want.

Maybe because I’m selfish and uncaring and that’s how my brain interprets most things.

I like this angle…“The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. And I knew we’d get into that rotten stuff pretty soon. Probably at the next gas station.” ~Barbara Bush

Kinda/sorta. I wrote the gist of it at least a month ago and I couldn’t really get it passed its current variation. It’s almost too structured.

I think some folks will use it negatively in reference to people deemed hippyish. The derogatory term for people who actually came from Bohemia (my heritage) was bohunk.
