This is a very good sign. I hope it's a harbinger of more Stott to come.

I guess I have no brain then.

I pre-ordered it.

 

 

Incidentally, I was thinking that as we become more international, we have to watch the way we use language. For many people for whom English is a second language "no-brainer" makes no sense.

I hope this is an encouragement to all of us to use more standard English, and less idioms in an international context.

By the way, no offense intended. I am just reflecting a little. Thanks for your time!

Of course, I pre-ordered the book.

However, Kendall's additional remark intrigued me.

What, exactly, is "standard English"? Isn't that open to interpretation? Some might consider British English to be strange while others would consider American (US) English to be a corruption of language. Those of us from the Southeastern US think everyone else talks funny Big Smile

That being said, I understand you concern, but these idioms are sometimes educational and often entertaining.

This international user and ESL speaker reassures you: "no brainer" is a very wide-spread idiom that has already attained near-loanword-status in other languages (you might even encounter it in a round of 'German-language' bullshit buzzword bingo...;-).

So, thanks for your empathy, but - unless prior posts indicate only a limited command of English in a thread - I don't think international users need to be protected from idioms and non-standard language.

On board also.

Hopefully our eagerness to take up this book might be an incentive for Logos to produce a "Works of John Stott" if they can get publisher agreements. Hopefully with dynamic pricing of course to allow for our purchase of single books like this!

Actually you do have point. I have friends from developing countries who have spoken English from being a toddler, who did not understand that different countries have their own versions of English and were initially hurt by my comments that their usage of English was different from mine - not worse but just different.

Just remember that their are differences between USA and UK. In the USA you walk in church wearing pants. In the UK your put trousers on over your pants or you will probably get asked to leave!
In the UK the I walk on the pavement while in the USA I understand that if I walk on the pavement I am liable to get run over and told to go onto the sidewalk!

Agreed. Yes

P.S. In the years of being present on Logos forums (and previous newsgroups) I have learned quite a number of interesting words (idioms).

After all, the Apostle Paul strictly used "standard" non-idiomatic Greek and King David strictly wrote in "standard" non-idiomatic Hebrew, so we should follow their examples.

Bohuslav, thanks for chiming in.

I withdraw my concern!

 

 Incidentally, Bohuslav, are you Bohemian? And does the "bohu" part of your name mean "God?" If it does, would it be the glory of God?

By the way, Randy. It wasn't meant as criticism. I probably had my "Chinese" glasses on when I saw this. You guys are right about their not being a standard English. I misspoke about that.

Indeed, it is a no-brainer! I am so happy to see Stott in the lineup. Thanks for pointing it out!

Incidentally, I just used several idioms in my last post. Surprise

I can't speak without idioms. Indifferent

Thanks for laughing at me so that I can have an opportunity to laugh at myself! Big Smile

 Peace Out!Cool
