Check out this interesting post from Esther Chilton’s blog on the topic of the strange working of the English Language – Part 1
As a writer, I love words, but I have to admit that the English language isn’t always straight forward and I feel that I’m constantly learning new things. Talking to fellow writers, it seems I’m not alone. So in this new series, I’m going to take a look at the often weird and wonderful world of words.
Q. Is it blond or blonde to describe a person’s hair?
A. In the UK, for men, it’s blond. For women, you need an ‘e’ on the end so it’s blonde. In the US, the spelling tends to be blond for both males and females.
Interesting word of the week:
Meaning: A union of two vowels pronounced in one syllable e.g. boil, out and fine.
