Braille Trivia

British Braille does not use capitalization. I think that's pretty neat and totally in keeping with the nature of Braille, sort of like vocal grammar does not work for sign language. Fascinating!

A Wordy Question: When people say, "Word." what does that mean?

Heard at Work: "You know what the problem with my dog is? She's a shepherd. She keeps herding me where she wants to go!"

Current Music: "Fat Albert" theme song

Word. It means a lot of things. For example.

I hate lima beans.
Word. (I agree)

I actually like lima beans.
Word. (OK)

I just got a AAA* on the Legend of Max on DDR on heavy!
Word! (Right on! You rock! Cool!)

It's generally an affirmative thing. I use it when I am exposed to a lot of ghetto speak yo. Fo sho.

Andrea--Oh! So it functions a lot like 'Dude,' eh?

Chantal

Yeah. Except that Dude is more of a surfer thing (In origin) and Word comes from ghetto speak.
