Episode Info

Episode Info: None of us are perfect with the grammar, especially not us native-English speakers. We’ve got all these words that mean totally different things but sound EXACTLY THE SAME!  And today, we here on Dogs are Smarter Than People are going to do things. Prove that dogs are smarter than people because they don’t have to spell.Help you all out about a five-some of evil. Yes, I’m talking about Aah, ah, ahh, aw, and awe. I know you’ve all seen it on Facebook. Someone you love writes, “Awe (a-w-e) that’s so cutie.” And you’re like, “No! Agh. I don’t want to be evil and tell them but they are using the wrong spelling here.”  Let’s get started.  Aah! Is an interjection. It’s like a giant mosquito as big as a velociraptor is hovering in front of your nose. You are afraid. Aah is what we use for those moments.  It has a super close relative – Ah!  Ah is an interjection, too. But this time you aren’t expressing fear; this time you are expressing love, surprise, pleasure, a realization.  “Ah! I now understand that was not a mosquito but was actually an Amazon delivery drone.”  And then we have their lovely relative, Ahh. Ahh is when you get something or you accept something.  Ahh, I do love you and your way with drones.  Ahh, this is how the world works, you act like a narcissist on social media and you suddenly have a million followers.  Let’s move on.

You make no sense.  So, it’s like this:  Aw, you are the bestest, cutiest Rotary club president ever.  Aw, your puppy is adorable!  Aw, that manatee lingere is the best underwear ever!  Aw, I probably should have realized that I have no chill prior to taking a leadership role and now I’m just sub-tweeting everyone and whining about their underwear.  And then we have the all-mighty awe.  Cue God music. Feeling like you are full of admiration, fear, reverence because of something super big-time like God or manatees swimming nearby or some really amazing underwear?  This is awe.  She raised her hands to the sky, overwhelmed with awe as the flying manatee in purple plaid underwear approached.  At the edge of the Grand Canyon, he grasped her sleeve in awe of the magnificence below them.  Writer Tip of the Pod Dictionaries are our friends. Words have meanings. Don’t stress out if you mess up. We all mess up, but try to do the best you can. We’ll be in awe of your mad wordsmithing skills.  Dog Tip for Life It’s easy to spell ‘bark.’ Don’t sweat the small stuff. We make mistakes. If you don’t hurt anyone, yourself or end up in jail, it’s probably all good  Shout Out The music we’ve clipped and shortened in this podcast is awesome and is made available through the Creative...
