  • Why do people still call it "Tin Foil" when actual foil made from tin has not been made since the 1940s?

    Best answer: Just like most people call cans 'tins'. They have never been made of tin, they were called 'tinned cans' as they were made of tin-plated steel. This got abbreviated to 'tin cans' and then to 'tins'. Here are a few things we say which are no longer descriptive of the action they... show more
    Best answer: Just like most people call cans 'tins'. They have never been made of tin, they were called 'tinned cans' as they were made of tin-plated steel. This got abbreviated to 'tin cans' and then to 'tins'. Here are a few things we say which are no longer descriptive of the action they refer to:-
    To 'dial' a telephone number
    To 'pull the chain'
    To 'tape' a tv programme
    'Tin foil' is also a case of referring back to the past.

  • Why is British English So Redundant and Otherwise Strange?

    Examples: In the move, "A Night to Remember (1958)," the second class couple, before leaving England, promises to send their relatives a wireless "from the ship." Just where else would they send it from? A crew member who spotted the Californian exclaimed that it was so many "miles"... show more
    Examples: In the move, "A Night to Remember (1958)," the second class couple, before leaving England, promises to send their relatives a wireless "from the ship." Just where else would they send it from? A crew member who spotted the Californian exclaimed that it was so many "miles" away, with heavy emphasis on the word "miles." Was there some uncertainty about the measure of distance? Another crew member assured someone that the Carpathia should be here "any time now," which emphasis on the word "now." What does the word "now" add to the sentence? In other contexts, the British will preface an assertion with "in actual fact." If a "fact" is not "actual" (i.e. true), then it is not a fact. The British refer to an ordinary flashlight as a torch. What do they call a real torch?

  • Which word is correct?

    Best answer: Both forms could be used, neither seems more "correct" than the other in normal everyday British English.. But it is a silly idea, since apples can be green, or yellow, or brown, or red, depending on variety and stage of ripeness. I have seen somebody's face turn green (truly) when confronted with a... show more
    Best answer: Both forms could be used, neither seems more "correct" than the other in normal everyday British English.. But it is a silly idea, since apples can be green, or yellow, or brown, or red, depending on variety and stage of ripeness. I have seen somebody's face turn green (truly) when confronted with a very hazardous electrical arrangement, but I assume that you meant "turn red", as in blushing, after the romantic eye contact.

    For instance: New York is called "The Big Apple" which I always think of as green, possibly because I became aware of the "Big Apple" nickname at the same time as the Beatles green apple record label, and an American song with the line "God didn't make the little green apples".

  • When I say: kitchen-turned-office, am I talking about an office or a kitchen?

    Best answer: I would assume a kitchen in an ordinary house or apartment which also serves as your office for a business run from home. It would be doubtful that the kitchen entirely lost its function of cooking area - some part of it would be dedicated for use as an office, unless the whole house had ceased to be a dwelling and... show more
    Best answer: I would assume a kitchen in an ordinary house or apartment which also serves as your office for a business run from home. It would be doubtful that the kitchen entirely lost its function of cooking area - some part of it would be dedicated for use as an office, unless the whole house had ceased to be a dwelling and had become, in effect, a business premises - maybe the other rooms had become storage or machinery arras.

    "The facilities have decreased the defects of detection and increased the accuracy" Should I say "and has increased" or the word "increased" would suffice.
