33 thoughts on “English Year 9”

  1. Lady-
    The word lady hasn’t always had its name
    The original word was ”Hlafdige” which meant loaf maid/kneeder of bread.
    The hlafdige was the female head of the household. Both the man and woman were a title of respect, with higher social standers.
    The name lost its internal sounds to ”Lady” and since then the word has dropped down within social standers and just meant a woman.

  2. Summary of: ODD
    The word odd today has many meanings, but they can all be traced back to the Indo-European word uzdho, which means ‘pointing upwards’. The word then got changed to ‘oddi’. Which referred to a triangle. A triangle, like an arrow head was recognized to have 2 angles that were the same and 1 that was different. After awhile ‘oddi’ was referred to something that wasn’t paired or something that was uneven.

  3. We think that the love locks are a lovley way of symbolizing the love that people have for eachother. Though we don’t believe that it is the exact key of finding true love, we think it mentally gives couples of all ages hope and faith of keeping their relationship alive and that their love can be eternally bound by a single lock. Its simple beauty can mean so much for two, or more people in the world. Question of how many ways you can show love is both simple and complex, because the answer to this question is next to impossible yet it can also be answered by a single word. Infinity. Because the ways to show love is beyond infinity. The number of this question is already beyond our knowledge and growing as the days pass by and more creative and original ways of showing your love to your loved ones are created every single passing day, hous and seconds. The thought of the love lock is what we think that the love of 2 can be eternally bound, sealed and locked by these locks with the key forever lost in the endless flowing river.

  4. I think that love locks are a sweet way of displaying your love for someone. However, it is more closely correlating to a symbol than ‘the key to finding true love’. Hanging a lock on a public fixture can’t possibly guarantee that a relationship will last forever. I can imagine that many naïve young couples decide to fasten their own love lock to a monument somewhere in the world only to break up several months later. The lock will then become a reminder of that broken relationship.

  5. Elin heard of it before but it was new to Ida. We didn’t really know anything about the show except Elin knew it was about murdering and neither of us have seen any episode.

    It’s an American crime drama series and it’s based on Jeff Lindsay’s book Darkly Dreaming Dexter.
    Dexter, the main character is portrayed by the actor Michael C. Hall. The series is set in Miami although big parts of it is recorded in California and some other places.

    We both think that Dexter seems like an interesting series and Ida would consider watching the first episode, Elin could take the time to see two or three episodes.

  6. Dexter is a two faced traitor who solves his own crimes with his co-workers, the series is set in California and its a pretty good show. I recommend it. (:

  7. Hello my friends
    Matheus and I have never seen Dexter.

    We read Dexter and we think Dexter is a boy who lives 2 different lives.
    He was a murderer who likes to kill people thats deserves it.In his second life he has his wife and 2 children.
    He kills people because his mother and brother died in front of him when he was 3 years old. In his second life he has his wife and 2 children. Lukas dont like this sorts of series but Matheus think this is a great series.

  8. We have not watched Dexter, so we don’t know much about it.
    Sarah finds crime dramas interesting, but Linnea doesn’t watch them.

    Jeff Lindsay facts:
    *Born July 14th 1952, Miami, Florida, USA
    *Dexter aired as a 2006 TV series on Showtime with the first season based on Darkly Dreaming Dexter
    *The second and third seasons, aired in 2007 and 2008, have original storylines that do not follow the plots of Lindsay’s books

  9. Hi
    The first episode I saw of Dexter was about when his sister found out that he was a serial killer. Dexter is a blood spatter expert for the Miami police homicide department. I think that crime drama is so exciting to watch.

  10. We know that Dexter is a serial killer and he has a girlfriend with two kids. Neither of us has seen any of the episodes. Julia thinks the series are awful but Adam thinks it would be fun to watch. The set is located in Los Angeles, California.

    1. Hi, so you guys agree to disagree 🙂

      ”Series” can be either singular or plural, but ”a series” is singular because of the word ”a”, so in this case you have to say ”is”, not ”are”.

  11. I don’t like the American drama series but the Swedish and Danish series are good. I think it’s better because I know the environment.

  12. We talked about Dexter. None of us has watched the show. We have only seen the comercials. We think the series sounds cool. Oskar have heard that it kinda goes downhill after a couple of seasons though. So then we discussed Jeff Lindsay. We searched on wikipedia and didn’t really find anything of value. He has three daughters and a wife and live in Cape Coral, Florida.

  13. Tell each other what you know about the show. Have you seen any episodes? Where is it set? What happens during the episode you remember? What do you think about the series?

    Before we read this text, we didn’t know much about the show. After reading this text, however, we discovered that it is about a man named Dexter who lives a double life as a serial killer and a normal guy. He works for the Miami police homocide department and investigates his own murders with his coworkers.

    We haven’t seen any of the episodes but we’d love to.

    It is set in Miami.

    We think the series seems really alluring. It’s almost like a twisted version of Hannah Montana for grown ups. That he works for a police department investigating his own murders makes it all the more interesting.

  14. I like the criminals series but I never have seen it. If I had looked on the series I think I should like it because I like tv shows with drama.
