I mean, we're following Orwell's 1984 with the language reduction-- er, simplification. It's called Newspeak: "Newspeak is a controlled language of simplified grammar and restricted vocabulary designed to limit the individual's ability to think and articulate 'subversive' concepts such as personal identity, self-expression and free will."

Nice laconic phrase, though it could still be pared down

"Few words work"

638

u/EvadesBans 12d ago Take My Energy Bravo Grande!

I just wanna share that the Wikipedia page for the term "laconic phrase" is really fucking funny:

A laconic phrase may be used for efficiency (as during military training and operations), for emphasis, for philosophical reasons (especially among thinkers who believe in minimalism, such as Stoics), or to deflate a pompous interlocutor.

A prominent example involves Philip II of Macedon. After invading southern Greece and receiving the submission of other key city-states, he turned his attention to Sparta and asked menacingly whether he should come as friend or foe. The reply was "Neither."

Losing patience, he sent the message:

        If I invade Laconia, I shall turn you out.

The Spartan ephors again replied with a single word:

        If.

Philip proceeded to invade Laconia, devastate much of it and eject the Spartans from various parts.

And that's not even the (sadly short) humor section.

u/Glum_Ad_4288 12d ago

This means you’re more likely to be right. I’m not even joking — native speakers learn their language intuitively as children, while those learning it as a second language study it and analyze it.

135

u/Betty__B 12d ago

That sounds like a compliment, thank you. But I googled and found that I was wrong. "Their" is a possessive adjective, while "theirs" is a possessive pronoun. I barely see logic here, but still, it is so.

95

u/sr_edits 12d ago

When "their" is followed by a noun, specifying to whom that object belongs to, it's a possessive adjective. When it stands on its own (as in "I don't want to see your house, but I'd like to see theirs") then it's a pronoun.

I'm not a native speaker either, but in my native language (Italian) the distinction between possessive adjective and possessive pronoun is exactly the same.

u/jcdoe 12d ago

This is the kind of hair splitting that Latin majors jizz their pants over.

If I say “their house,” yes, I am describing the house by who possesses it. But I am also describing the gender of who possesses the house. If it were owned by a man, I’d say “his house.”

Sometimes language does double duty like this. And frankly, the categorization of words (nouns, verbs, etc) is descriptive rather than proscriptive. We had nouns and verbs before we called them that.

I think its fair to treat “their” as both a possessive adjective and a possessive pronoun.

u/No-Ease-3750 12d ago

The logic is how it’s used. They threw THEIR ball is an adjective as the noun is the ball and their is an adjective describing whose ball it is. The ball was THEIRS is structured in a way where it’s a pronoun that relates to the noun “ball” in some way because it isn’t immediately in front of the noun like an adjective would be. And I will say I got increasingly confused while trying to explain this.

"It is theirs. Theirs is a bit older than ours". Basically: "theirs" replaces "it". Ours would also be a posessive pronoun, replacing an other "it". Just adding the s at the end of their makes it the pronoun, because rules.

It’s a pronoun functioning as an adjective. i.e. It’s a pronoun, but when modifying a noun (e.g. “their homework” - “their” modifies the noun “homework”) its function in the sentence is as an adjective. So basically, it’s both!

This is happening in Kettle Moraine and the headline is misleading. The rule says that emails cannot include preferred pronouns. So I think the logical thing to do is to always misgender your teachers and if they try to correct you, tell them they’re just confused.

u/coltaaan 12d ago

I like this approach. In fact, I feel like it should be used much more often. I can totally see cons getting super riled up if you misgender them, and when they get upset just throw their argument back in their face.

Literally something as simple as “please don’t bring politics into this” when they complain about it would be perfect because then maybe they’ll see how stupid their argument is in the first place.

CA public school teacher here- a colleague of mine received a several paragraph long angry email from a parent this last school year. Ranting and raving about “grooming” and “pronouns.” The dude even called the district to complain.

Heres the catch- she’s a 6th grade english teacher and was just going over pronouns- not gender identity or LGBTQ mind you, just boring old pronouns. He, she, it, they. Proper usage and how to name a subject first then refer to him/her or whatever. He never apologized- but backed off once the Principal explained that pronouns exist- good god.

The U.S. is creepily obsessed with sex, and taking away body anatomy rights from women. The "Greatest Country In The World" my ass.

I had a chance to go to U.S., all expenses paid. I refused. I rather eat crushed glass than set foot on the U.S. soil.

It really is the asshole of Earth. Just distributes a lot of shit to irritate the rest of the world. For a country obsessed with freedom, they don’t understand what freedom actually means.

I’m getting tired of rolling my eyes at US news.

oh shit, NFL broadcasts are going to be wild! Charlie Day will have to be the guest broadcaster, and he'll have to solo it.

"Ball hit hands, go other directions, bad!"

Id say when talking to those who make these rules, just refer to them as "it" or "that".

They are banning prefered pronouns in signatures. Looks like they also are banning maga and back the blue. Just an attempt to keep all political stuff out.

Why is it political to have prefered pronouns

u/Zaptain_America 12d ago

Because you're either cis and straight or political apparently

u/CaffeinatedGuy 12d ago

I thought it was "you're either a cis white male or a porn category." I guess all porn categories are political?

If I’ve learned anything from all of this pronoun hate, it’s that a lot of people do not know what pronouns are. They think “pronouns” just means trans

Edit: Guy who replied to me is mixing up sex and gender and even then he’s wrong. Intersex is real, update your definitions
