I have a fascination with language. I am a keen student of spelling and grammar. I freely state that I don’t know it all and I’m sure I make mistakes.
I love the sounds of some words and how some phrases just seem to evoke meanings that aren’t really intended. Here are three words/phrases that have piqued my interest of late…
Skin prick – vain, obnoxious person
Slatwall – promiscuous individual
Plankwall – person who lacks intellectual competence
Do you have any words or phrases which elicit other meanings? (Please post in comments)
