Yeah... I tried every one. So did you. Nerd humor.<-- Yupp. Tried it, giggled then read the description and laughed even harder. Lol.
Laughs - Did you know? "I never said she stole my money" has 7 different meanings depending on the stressed word.
The English language is funny. You can emphasize every single word in that sentence to garner the different meanings. ;}
I read a blog post about this concept (how the stressed word in a sentence can change its meaning) a while ago!
Oh neat... Could be a really cool lesson on different meanings one sentences can have. Context + importance of certain words over others to give meaning
"But it's not just that particular ONE sentence that does that. Just about ANY sentence, IF NOT all, do that, the amount of meanings is determined by the number of words. Seriously, make up any sentence and do it."-- this is known as LANGUAGE, people. COME ON!! THINK!!!
Did you know? "I never said she stole my money" has 7 different meanings depending on the stressed word. THIS is (one of a few reasons) why I do what I do, and love what I do.
Brain game!!! Word stress changes the meanings.
Works with lots of other sentences
This just got more and more hilarious ...

made me laugh b/c it's so true!! I do this to my kids b/c it's a lot easier and works a lot better :)
Works great with stranger's kids who misbehave in a store away from their parents. You know the kind. They figure mom can't see them and no one else us going to dare to say anything. Until I come along.
This does work!! 😜 Yelling does not work! Kids and all people turn off their listening when you start to yell/scream at them. It's called abuse. TG Parenting is never easy.
Parenting. I asked my kids one day to start whispering when I found them whining for things because my ears hurt and I could not hear what they wanted.. It really worked for me and they stopped whining! Amazing! ( bend over and ask them to please whisper like this with their big girl or boy voice so you can hear what they are saying) It works!
LOL... Can't stand parents who yell at their kids! Great alternative perspective! So funny...
How to be a good parent. So true and funny at the same time!!!
Parenting funny! Does this work?
Funny stuff and so true!
I love the English language.

"Yeah, right." [From George Takei's FB. ] And this comment: Just like the lecturer who stated that "sugar" was the only word in the English language to use "su" to sound out a "sh" sound. Only to have a student ask, "Are you sure?" Love students. :)
yeah right... - (double)(positive)(negative)(mit)(linguistics)(professor)(lecture)(languages)(russian)(screenshot) - #double #positive #negative #mit #linguistics #professor #lecture #languages #russian #screenshot
I seriously love this. <-- Oh, my goodness. Genius. Double negative and double positive. English and languages
Double positive - An MIT linguistics professor was lecturing his class the other day "In english, he said, "a double negative forms a positive. However, in some languages such as Russian a double negative remains a negative but there isnt a single language not one in which a double positive can express a negative" A voice from the back of the room piped up "yeah, right"
"... his encounter with the Oxford philosopher J. L. Austin. During a talk on the philosophy of language at Columbia in the 50's, Austin noted that while a double negative amounts to a positive, never does a double positive amount to a negative. From the audience, a familiar nasal voice muttered a dismissive, ''Yeah, yeah.'' 4th Paragraph of: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/12/26/magazine/26MORGENBESSER.html?_r=0
"Yeah, right." Oh that is just funny! Guess it proves that sarcasm is a language of it's own.
This made me laugh even more now seeing as I'm teaching English as a second language!

LOL we do have stupid stuff like that in German, too. Every language is beautiful in its own way. Some more than others.

It does make perfect sense. Just because you're an idiot doesn't mean the English language is stupid.
Though strictly speaking the English language is full of amazingly descriptive words so though this sentence makes sense there is no need to repeat 'had' four times.... I just killed the fun didn't I?
All the faith he had had had had no effect on the outcome of his life. Stupid message but funny sentence.
Oy. I would laugh, except I'm pretty sure I, too, have said sentences like this before.
Makes perfect sense. Oh, the English language.

HOMOGRAPHS are the same as homonyms except for the fact that they can be pronounced differently. For example, the words “tear” [tîr] (meaning a drop of water from an eye) and “tear” [târ] (meaning to cut something like paper) are spelled the same, have different meanings, but are pronounced completely differently.

Mind. Blown. too bad the guy who made this meem was so beguiled by the amazing sentence he called the last word a letter.
Impressive, but I can tell that the person who wrote the reason is not the same person who wrote the quoted sentence...
