The other p*ssboiler is where they create new words by combining two existing ones together. E.g. Synergy (synchronised energy),what a clusterf*ck.


Synergy is an actual word stemming from the Greek words, 'sun' meaning together, and 'ergon' meaning working - Synergia 'working together'

The irony of the thread is the 'English' language is a wild concoction of languages we've inherited from everyone else.

However, I will agree that the use of words such as synergy has become cringeworthy.

My bad. I didn't google it already.

:twisted: :lol:

The language thing isn't new, it goes back ages. I was an apprentice in Carlisle during the early 60's and the rest of the blokes were all northerners from the wilds of Geordieland and Cumberland. Me, being a Southerner, the North started at Barnet...., that's where the Northern Line on the underground stopped. It took months just to get the hang of basic Geordie and Cumbrian. If there was a group of them together, they might as well have been speaking Swahili. But I learned later that they were the very best at telling the posh wafflers that they was takkin a lord of hoss-shite..... Great times - and great blokes

Australia was the same........ get a load of conscript Country farm boys in the workshop and I'd be lost....
