Please

Please

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimenting with words..

Please.

It has many forms and ways to be delivered and each has a different effect based on situations.

I'm pleased to meet you.

I'm very hard to please.

How will you please me?

Will you please shut up?

One can easily distinguish, it can be used seductively as well as a retort, as a sign of arrogance or as in the first example, etiquettes.

English is indeed a funny language and an extremely hard one to understand....too many rules...too many regulations and oh so many meanings. Thank you for your share!

Still, I find it somewhat easier to express myself in English than in my own language...! 😶

My pleasure entirely, Neville
This is the way to show instead of tell that a simple familiar word can have many meanings, & so much is carried by the tone, the attitude, & the body language. Here's another one: "Puuuuuulease!" I enjoy exploring words, so this one is satisfying (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I love how you can take a word and show its transformative colors and hues depending on where it is painted on the canvas. Words do amaze me, and languages, and you bring out a brilliant example of why. :)

Yeah, each passing day amazes me too.
Thank you so much for the appreciation.😇
I love this idea of writing about just something...I am dry on writing ideas lately.

I understand that English is one of those few languages that has undergone excessive evolution. Having been influenced by several European dialects and a few other languages across the world.

Now I am sure that...this review of mine appears to be some kind of teaching. I must stop here.

Really? I didn't know that!
And yes you're right ☺
made me smile. Seriously, go back to this sentence "a retort,as a sign" and click between the comma (,) and the word "as" and then hit the space bar once. It needs space.

Many say what you say in your note, but what you wrote can be taken in other ways too. I found delight in reading this. Tyfs.
