Words to tell you what to do, words are working hard for you.
Eat your words but don’t go hungry; words have always nearly hung me.

If you are a similar age to me (40-twelve), you may well recognise these words (words, words); especially if I add the memorable lines…

A ram sam sam, a ram sam sam
Guli guli guli guli guli ram sam sam
Hi kye yay, yippie yi kye yay
Awoo awoo ayee kie chi’

I mention this because I’ve decided to start posting on LinkedIn each Friday until my brain bleeds dry, sharing marketing’ey thoughts. And, as I pondered over which amazing alliterative title to use, I started wondering. Wondering about the word ‘wonder’.

This got me thinking about the ambiguous nature of the English language.

Add in a bit of context, then mix in the life experiences of each audience member, and you’ll potentially end up with each individual applying a different meaning to every sentence you write.

Do you love coffee?
Do you love your mum?
Do you love your partner?
Do you love nuance?

Do you ever ass-u-me more than you should?
And do you ever wonder why you don’t get the response you’d like?

Something to wonder about this weekend.

And don’t forget…
Words are stupid; words are fun.
Words can put you on the run!
