Hi everyone, my name's Rachel. This blog just consists of stuff that interests me personally, mostly reblogs that are undoubtedly heavy on Christoph Waltz content. Nothing too exciting here!

Fuck

Actually, ‘fall’ has its origins as an Anglo-Saxon word, and was popularized for use to denote the season around the 16th century from the poetic term ‘the fall of leaf.’ In the language that would develop after 1066, words that were coded as being common or lowly generally had Anglo-Saxon roots while the ‘educated’ words of the elite had French and Latin roots. This is why, even in modern English, we use ‘cow,’ which has an Anglo-Saxon origin, for the animal out in the field and ‘beef,’ which has a French origin, for the food to be consumed. The poor handle the animal while the rich eat the meat, and that is reflected in the language. The language of the conquerors was elevated while the language of the conquered was made base and common. If ‘autumn’ sounds smarter than ‘fall,’ that is only the linguistic snobbery of history talking.

LINGUISTIC BITCHSLAP.

Thank you. I was too lazy to find my post.

Fun related fact - the meaning of the word “November” in several Slavic languages (and “October” in Croatian because fuck you that’s why) - variations on listopad - is also named for falling leaves, list being “leaf” and pad being “fall”.

A large bear-like animal—most likely a bear—has wandered down from the hills in search of food or perhaps employment.

My idea of rich is that you can buy every book you ever want without looking at the price and you’re never around assholes. That’s the two things to really fight for in life.
