|We need a universal language|
By Andy Rooney
SOMETIMES IT’S hard to decide what to think and write about. What I do is turn to the first thing that occurs to me.
For instance, I might be able to make something out of the difference between the words “some time” and “sometime” and even “sometimes.” I’m not sure, but I think the word “sometimes” would come closer to being slang than regular usage. American grammar and word usage puzzles me “sometimes,” and I can imagine if I was born in China or Japan, where there are so many more characters in their languages, how difficult that would be to master.
