Erm, so that means you hate everyone?


English isn't one of his strong points. ... :D


:lol: sorry just saw this :lol: :lol: :lol:


And none of you so quick to try an belittle mustiejodu are as smart as you think.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_negative

In standard written English, when two negatives are used in one sentence, the negatives are understood to cancel one another and produce a weakened affirmative. However, in many dialects, the second negative is employed as an intensifier and should be understood as strengthening the negation rather than removing it.


I do not hate anyone. I do not hate no one.

It is clear that the meaning behind these two things is exactly the same, with any difference being that the second is a more intense way of saying the former. So what we actually see here is a lack of understanding on the part of those claiming he is saying he hates everyone , that as the wiki quote above points out, should be understood. The reason why in this case it has not been 'understood' is nothing to do with what mustiejodu wrote and everything to do with what ethnicity those commenting on his post perceive him to be and their prejudices.



Firstly when I said I just saw this I meant the whole post with musti's fascination with Greek mothers, grandmothers etc....

Secondly, I wasn't taught English as a dialect in school.

That you were not taught in English that there are dialects, colloquialisms and slang in everyday usage or that when a scots man says 'I do nae hate no English people' he does NOT mean he hates all English people is hardly my or mustiejodu's fault.

But let us stop being coy here shall we ? GiG, when she questioned if mustiejodu meant 'you hate everyone' KNEW that is not what he meant, just as any native English speaker would have know. When Bill Cobbett commented on his lack of English language skills, he KNEW such usage was common in everyday English without any 'misunderstanding' as did you know both things when you posted your multiple laughing smileys (in a post quoting nothing of mothers and grandmothers I might add - only quoting the double negative and the comments on it). Just as we all know that if it had been a GC poster who said exactly the same thing neither GiG, Bill or yourself would have commented.

No intention of being coy whatsoever. Musti behaved like a dirty little bastard and got slapped. The fact that he presented that side of him "the Turkish conqueror that raped your mothers and grandmothers" is of no surprise to myself as it's a common defense of a few characters on the tc side when feeling threatened. Just like the old "we taught your boys to swim in Crete" that you might get from the gc side.

Only thing not clear now is why you're here debating with me Musti's grammar and jibes he's received. Has he done your granny too?

Because they can..

What are you a turkan or turkant?

It must seem strange for a Turk to see a man having relations with someone they are not related to. :lol:
