Friends of Scriba will know that we’re big fans of the English Language! Why? Because you could be faced with an undeniably tough question, for example, but if you think carefully, you might need only a single word to answer it!
This was actually the very idea behind our latest blog series – One Word Wonder. 10 questions, 10 seconds to answer each, and 10 resulting words, dedicated to that person in the hot seat. OK, the questions aren’t exactly Mastermind standard. Nor will they cause anyone any sleepless nights. But they may just give you a sneak peek into what’s going on inside that person’s own little vocab!
Next up it’s Luci Ownsworth our PR Assistant.
What is the one word you wish people would use to describe you? Helpful – I like to think I can be helpful to anyone I meet.
What is there too much of in the world? Bullying
And not enough? Support
Which word do you remember struggling to spell? Scheduling – I always end up forgetting the c and get all confused.
Which word is being used to death at the moment? Christmas – I suppose it is acceptable now that it is just around the corner!
Pick a word that symbolises Yorkshire, Scriba’s home county… Home. I wasn’t born in Yorkshire, but it has been home for me for 16 years.
Your favourite single-word song title… Dreams – both versions of the song
A word you can’t believe is in the dictionary… Blamestorming
A word you still don’t truly understand the definition of… There are too many just to pinpoint one, but most car terms have me very confused.
And your favourite word of all time? Plonker. From watching Only Fools and Horses with my family, the word always made me laugh.
