The problem with ies and eis

Filed under: Life as I know it — Celia Rexselin @ 9:17 am

Well, I had just wanted to write about this new addiction of mine. Seinfeld. Or is it Sienfeld? I do a web search, find out and by the time I get back to my scribble, Voila. I have forgotten what I wanted to write.

So, what am I going to do now!! Lets talk about the problem with ies and eis. Now, people say that women in general are very very good in vocabulary and thats why they talk too much. Is it so? Whats up with spelling then? Why do I always have to think before I write believe or receive? Do you have a problem here? Let me tell you a tip here that one of my friend told me.

With receive = you always say ‘eeeee’ before you receive anything. But you don’t do that for ‘believe’!! Eww, I know that this idea sucks! but it is atleast better than goofing up by writing recieve. What say? Ok! but this doesn’t solve all my problem. What do I do for other words that have this unique vowel pair. Someone has got to write an exception in English that these are interchangeable. If English can stand the oh-so silent words, then it can definitely stand my new interchangeable grammar (Mind you! you read this here first! so, duly give me credit if you are going to copy paste this rule).

Wa! now I remembered Seinfeld’s. What a drama!! Why is there not a single equivalent of it in tamil television? Why do I have to put up with all the alugaachiis!! or does anyone know such and such a soap?



  1. Seinfeld oh Sienfel oh…begining la nalla irukum then you will get bored after some time to watch same kind of crap…instead namma oor alugaachi serials evalo soober ah iruku…enna story ne puriyaama…break vittu one year kalichu paarthaalum you can pick it up from there šŸ˜›

  5. Serious Attempt to clone
    krishna cottage – Jaya T.V
    Veetuku veedu lutti – Jaya T.V


    over all what i feel is these serials ( Sienfield , friends or of similar shades ) has a twined scarstic very plain comedy, which is quite natural to laugh @that moment.
    where as we do have comedy in terms of voice modulation, or teasing others or kind of one comedy hero drives the whole show which makes the difference.

    with my feeling recollecting friends or sienfield comedies and using it in real time is very rare. Coming to vadivelu or vivek or whom ever generally most of the people tempted to use his slang or acting in real time. thats is the success of ours.
