High Phlegmancy Words

No, that's not a typo up there. High phlegmancy words.

I have been working with my middle child on these. Well at least that's what he calls them. High phlegmancy words. Or would it be flemancy words. We're not talking about the repsiratory system or mucus or even coughing anything up. Ewww gross. I remember my older brother doing that on purpose when he was a teenager though. Ewwwww gross.

Good grief, where is this post going? How many readers have I lost? Oh, do come back, I'll get to the point.

You know, high phlegmancy words. Words like the, and, a, is, in, it, you, if, it and so on. You know, the most commonly used words in the English language.

Well, we all call them high frequency words! Apparently I need to spend an increased amount of time with him on pronunciation as well!

*on a side note, my oldest took this picture of his brother. It's SOOC, I didn't touch it whatsoever. i thought that was pretty neat!

I was wondering about "phlegmancy" too. ;) I wasn't sure what you were talking about...thought I missed a class or two in HS English. Cute pic...I think you have a budding photographer on your hands.

Another photographer in the making!! Somehow these boys of ours would rather be busy tearing down, putting together, tearing out (on their motorbikes) than learning to read or reading for that matter!

I see he gets his photography talents from his mother!!!

I'm sure all that orneriness in the middle boy's eyes comes from Lineman!

You tell your "middle boy", not to worry too much, at 34 I still can't pronounce some words. LOL

Looks like you have passed on some of your talent to you oldest...great picture!

I thought high phlegmancy words were like super-long, impossible to articulate medical terms that really mean things like mucus,poop,puke,boogers, and other undesirable bodily "things"!

Andrea said...

Cute, that is quite the big word for him. Very nice photo too, way to go big bro!
