    Re: Words/Names: Deception

    Ashely. Sounds like a girl's name but it can be a guy's name too.

    Tenancy. Tenancy can mean ownership in issues in relation to co-ownerships but this term can also appear in leasehold transactions...

    Disclosure. Disclosure in litigation means someone has revealed a document or evidence that they possess or used to possess but it does not mean those documents/evidence has been inspected.

    Re: Words/Names: Deception

    Just noticed the geeky thread.

    how about

    Auntie=Aunty? i dont think im really good at this but i tried

    sometimes people say please and i think they mean the police (coz of the way they say it)

    Rime=Rhyme <-- im not sure if thats real but okay

    Aisha,Ayesha, Aesha

    Honour-Honor

    Humour-Humor <--im thinking this is the different wording between the geeky Americans and GEEKY British folk.

    hope i helped

    .. peace ..

    Re: Words/Names: Deception

    When I was first learning english, I thought 'dust' (verb) actually only meant "to sprinkle dust on/over something", and I was shocked to find out that it also means the opposite (ie.to remove dust)!

    The same with some others such as cleave, buckle, etc.

    And when I was in Boston, I often heard bostonians said "irregardless" with such thick boston accent, which surprised me because I knew that the word does not actually exist, "regardless" is the correct form.

    It's irreGAHdless! I'm originally from the Boston area, and yes, that's very commonly said there! We do tend to make up a lot of words!

    Here's one, "Brigid", an Irish name, is pronounced - in the US at least - as either "Breed" or "Brigit".
