The English Coversation
I was doing an article and most of my articles are for UK based companies lately. So I ask Rich…
Me: What is a Shire anyway? I know they had tons in Lord of the Rings. I’ll Google it.
So I Google it and find out it is similar to a county in the US. So if I live in Bay County, in England it’d be Bay Shire. (I think)
Me: They confuse me over in the UK.
Rich: I think they were there first actually.
Me: Well, then why not keep the words the same when the Pilgrims came over?
Rich: They wanted to be separate from all that they left.
Me: That doesn’t mean they have to go around making up new words.
