Here's some word facts I encountered today:

No word in the English language rhymes with month.

Typewriter is the longest word that can be made using the letters on only one row of the keyn(b)oard.

"Go!" is the shortest complete sentence in the English language.


So, can anyone debunk any of these assertions?

this too shall pass
I've posted this before, but it seems to bear repeating here:

To find a rhyme for silver
Or any other "rhymeless" rhyme
Requires only will, ver-
bosity, and time.
-unknown

oh, and purple rhymes with hirple; YCLIU.

I can't write anything on a keynoard.

So why is it so difficult for you to write anything on a keyboard? Is there something about anything that gives you a mental block against writing it in the keyboard realm? And are you able to write anything freehand? Or is it everything about anything that gives you a writing block for it in every mode? Just curious, just askin'... and there's your "B", ASp...see the edit in my Alpha-post...sheesh!

I bet if you tried a SharpieŽ you could.

Hi AnnaStrophic,
Orange rhymes with month. Recently you expressed your admiration of my language skill, but this time you have me stumped. I am curious..

Ah, Herr Sieber; it was just a bit of absurd fluff. Orange is often the first word that occurs when people think of one that has no rhyme; silver and purple also come to mind (as they did above).
