I'm Sara. Oklahoma born and raised for the whole of my 23 years, but am currently living in southern Spain. I believe in a loving, kind, just, and forgiving God. I hold a B.A. in Spanish with a minor in TESOL. A descriptive linguistics fanatic, along with Sailor Moon, Doctor Who, Miyazaki films, Wes Anderson films, Hank and John Green, and the Oxford comma. I think people should be able to choose how to live their lives. If you want to know more, just ask.
I like people. Talk to me in English o háblame en español.
Fuck I’m walking downtown and I pass a group of guys staring at me and I think “great catcall time” but then one guy goes “you look like you could kill a man a million different ways with just your bare hands”. This. This is an acceptable comment to give a girl on the street.
what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?
It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
