My theory

Post by Sinister96 on 2009-05-28, 12:24 am

My theory is that speech can be like math.

For example. Multipication with positives and negatives make a negative. Now. follow me.

If you say "was" in the sentence "Was it hot today?" replying to a person's comment that its hot today, it would usually mean that you dont think that it was hot if you have the correct emphasis on the word. chances are you did.

If you say "wasn't" in the sentence "Wasn't it hot today" your trying to get someone to agree that it WAS hot today.

Think of "was" as a positive and "wasn't" as a negative.

Now if you say "was or wasn't it hot today?" it still sounds like your trying to prove it WAS hot, even if you switch it around, saying "wasn't or was it hot today?"

The reason of this is even if you have a positive in the sentence, think of multiplying the negative. it still becomes a negative. apparently the same applies in human speech.

So maybe english is a bit like math. I hope this made sense.


Edit*: This only seems to work if you put the correct emphasis. Think of the emphasis as the multipication for this problem.
