Swear Your Way

Did you know that in English roughly 80 to 90 of the words spoken every day - or 0.5% to 0.7% of the total - are swear words? By comparison, first-person plural pronouns (we, us and our) make up around 1% of spoken words. 

Did you know, too, that swear words exist in all human languages

There’s even swearing in the Bible: the Authorised King James Bible from 1611 talks of men who “eat their own dung, and drink their own piss” which, while not the strongest language in the world, you’d still think twice about saying in front of your Gran.

What people are saying about Siine Writer

Tech Crunch
Think there’s only one way to type on your phone? Think again...  It takes a while to get used to Siine, but once you do you start seeing the potential of the app rather quickly. I suspect it could be a hit with the teen crowd.

The history of "hello"

In the English speaking-world “hello” is such an important part of every-day language that it is nigh-on impossible to imagine life without it.

So it may be some surprise that it was apparently only coined in the 19th Century – and its origins are something of mystery.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, “hello” is an alteration of hallo / hollo, which came from Old High German, halâ / holâ, the imperative of halôn / holôn, which mean “to fetch”, typically used in hailing a ferryman.
