Wrong~~What year is it and what language do we speak now ??

Use “other than.”keep it simple~~

Than is a word which deals with comparisons.

Then is a word which deals with time.

(Perhaps you can remember then by its similarity to when, another word dealing with time.)
Since the phrase, “other than,” is referring to another situation, it is comparing the two situations. Therefore than is used.

On the other hand, you would use then to refer to a moment in time. For instance, “I was there then.”

Middle English( lololol ) was a period of roughly 300 years from around 1150 CE to around 1450 – is difficult to identify because it is a time of transition between two eras that each have stronger definition: Old English and Modern English... what do we speak now??? Oh, that's right we speak Modern English from about the the 17Th century now..

Or perhaps the simple reasoning of the Merriam Webster..

I wondered how long it would take before you showed up to give her a much needed lesson on the difference between Then and Than......a lesson that would have beneficial for all three of her reincarnations, as you had recognized previously! 👍😎🕵🏼

But that's okay, Trump was supposed to react like a republican, take it, apologize, apologize again, and either resign or become a Democrat.


To them the only good Republican is a Rino.

Insurrection? The only people shot were unarmed protesters.


Which wouldn't have happened if not for the violent insurrection, or do you not get that part?

I had missed this side conversation until Texcan mentioned it. I have just purchased a DVD called Grammar boot camp and the Professor goes into some of the evolution of English in the time periods you mentioned. I am not very far into the course yet. It is interesting how words and the rules governing grammar keep changing.

Nobody talks about why Americans stormed the Capitol. A STOLEN ELECTION is the reason why.
That was just the first bubble out of the boiling cauldron.
There will be more, and more effective ways to take America back.

You mean the thousands more who were put out of work with a stroke of Biden’s pen on Inauguration Day. Or were they happy because of unpaid vacation? Im not happier, nor are any of the deplorables I know. We LOVE TRUMP.




No he must mean the people who are having to pay $0.40 more for a gallon of gas & Barack H. Obiden has only been n office one month. At this rate, we'll be paying $9.00 a gallon by Christmas.

The bombast from Trump was nothing more than a brave American willing to fight off the attacks from the media, the international left, the kommiecrats, and the RINOS. Trump did it with aplomb and humor. The chaos came only from the left.
It's still coming, even as the demented Biden begins the dismantling of America as founded and flourished.
Biden doesn't know what he is doing, but his Handlers do.
In your jargon, Our Democracy means communism.
America was invaded January 20th by a foreign government that entered the Whitehouse.

The people who stormed the capital were mostly agitators with a few trump supporters. But how can anyone demonize a whole group for the action of only a few. There were thousand of trump supporters there demonstrating peacefully what did they do to warrant such a label. This is communism at its best. Anyone who voted Republican is now concidered a domestic terroist. If the left thinks this is fair something is seriously wrong in this country

After the revolution, the rebels become the conservatives and the conservatives become the rebels.
Thus, we stormed the New Capitol as the previous citizens.
There will be more as Biden's Handlers start to punish Americans in other ways than 9 dollar gasoline.

I hate it but your right what bothers me is that the CITIZENS that voted for Biden are ok with this what has happened to this country to make this ok

Do you really think that they are aware of what Biden"s Handlers are doing?
They think that Joe is a good man who will be fair to everyone and only tax the rich people and the guy standing behind that tree. They think that no president would ever harm America. They think that the media know more than they about everything, so, if the media love Joe, he must be all right. And if media hate Trump, they better start hating him to, because they know sooo much more than they do.

It is interesting.. The natural evolution of language changes because language itself changes. Too simple?? Yes, but fact and also fascinating

Basically I think of it as this.. the natural evolution of language changes with each generation and as such new words are invented and when repeated enough finally makes it into the dictionary as a now approved word (even lingo) so to speak..Along with it comes a definition of description for interpretation and as new words are not shared so readily, linguistically we suffer from it for sometimes many years before acceptance is achieved... I don’t know how valid this is its just my take on it.. I use my generational words as compared to my sons generation..
Sic means not illness but cool, rad, or far out..(note the spelling)
Woke is not I woke this morning it means Im more aware of things, I believe this now , etc..
One good thing, no matter the generation, Love still means what it means to the person..Love an emotional state of pure bliss~~
