Nonsense: a language with only one word: erp

User Journal 11

So, last night i decided to make a language with only one word: erp. It will mean different things based on speed, intonation, context, and repetition. erp erp?

I'm pretty sure South Park is not on the list of things you watch, but they did do an epsiode with aliens called the Marklar whor replace every noun witht he word Marklar [wikipedia.org] . So if tehre was ever an episode you might enjoy, this would be it;-)

A grammar nazi might point out that he described "Marklar" being used as a noun, whereas you just used "Smurf" as a verb.

I can think of one word in particular [m-w.com] that is so overused it no longer has any meaning whatsoever. Indeed some people seem to use it as by far the most common component of language. It is used as a noun, a verb, an adjective, sometimes all in the same sentence.

While i appreciate the sentiment, i do not appreciate the word.

Back on a less serious note, i think erp has much greater potential than other candidates. It's so easy to erp, the nuances would be so much more erptastic.

i do not appreciate the word.

I am generally not fond of its application (more so than the word itself), which is why I provided a referring link to it rather than stating it by name.

That said, I certainly have applied said word in slashdot posts in the past. I use it sparingly for emphasis, and not everyone agrees with my application of it.
