    Подмигивание Re: Самые редкие и сложнозапоминаемые слова

    We’ll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,
    But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes.

    Then one fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
    Yet the plural of moose should never be meese,

    You may find alone mouse or a whole nest of mice,
    But the plural of house is houses, not hice.



    If the plural of man is always called men,
    Why shouldn’t the plural of pan be called pen?

    The cow in the plural may be cows or kine,
    But a bow if repeated is never called bine,
    And the plural of vow is vows, never vine.

    If I speak of a foot and you show me your feet,
    And I give you a boot would a pair be called beet?

    If one is a tooth, and a whole set are teeth,
    Why shouldn’t the plural of booth be called beeth?

    If the singular’s this and the plural is these,
    Should the plural of kiss ever be nicknamed keese?

    Then one may be that and three would be those,
    Yet hat in the plural would never be hose,
    And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.

    We speak of a brother, and also of brethren,
    But though we say mother, we never say methren,

    Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,
    But imagine the feminine she, shis and shim,

    So the English, I think, you all will agree,
    Is the queerest language you ever did see

    In English, we use the word “get” (or its past tense “got”) very often. Sometimes we say “get” by itself; sometimes we say “get” as part of a phrasal verb such as “get in” or “get up”. And we use get/got to mean many different things. If I “get” a newspaper, it means that I buy a newspaper. If I “get angry”, it means that I become angry. If I “get to London”, it means that I arrive at London. How confusing!
    In the last podcast, I said that I was going on holiday to Germany. Here is the story of our journey.

    We GOT UP very early, at 3am. We GOT DRESSED and had a quick breakfast. Then we GOT INTO the car. When we left home it was still dark, but as we drove southwards it GOT lighter. We GOT TO Dover a little after 7 o’clock, and GOT the ferry from there to France. Then we drove east and south through Belgium. We stopped at a motorway service station near Brussels, where we GOT some petrol, and something to eat. At a little after 3pm we GOT TO Heimbach, a pretty little village in Germany for our holiday.

    Now I will tell you the same story again, without using “get” or “got” (except in one place, where I cannot think of a different word to use).

    We rose very early, at 3am. We dressed ourselves and had a quick breakfast. Then we got into the car. When we left home it was still dark, but as we drove southwards it became lighter. We arrived at Dover a little after 7 o’clock, and took the ferry from there to France. Then we drove east and south through Belgium. We stopped at a motorway service station near Brussels, where we bought some petrol, and something to eat. At a little after 3pm, we arrived at Heimbach, a pretty little village in Germany for our holiday.

    Both these versions – the one with “get” and the one without “get” – are good English. But the “get” expressions in English are very common – people use them all the time in both spoken and written English. So don’t be afraid of them.
    I'm not where I need to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be. I'm okay and I'm on my way.
