Sex, Donald Trump And Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 22, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

The headline, no matter which languages you may understand, is clear: Is Donald Trump a Sex Monster? With the recent revelations surrounding the candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America and his sexual leanings, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the international press has also hit upon the many […]

Language: Do You Understand?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 30, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It is a fact of life, and one which I have come to accept, that not everyone understands what you are trying to communicate. There are language barriers everywhere, not just between countries and cultures, which are seemingly impossible to overcome. I accept, for example, that the vast majority of people I meet, bordering on […]

The True Language Of America

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 12, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The United States of America. Such a wonderful idea, such a complicated and yet simple ideal but, like Communism, it only works on paper. The United States would be a wonderful place, I am told, if it weren’t for the people. Cut the people out – those who live there, not those who are only […]

Lost For Words

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 6, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

If you think that trying to learn a new language is difficult, then consider trying to teach someone a new language without words, without sound, when that language is not your native tongue. Now add a small difficulty to the whole: you’ve forgotten the word that you want to use. English is not, as you […]

It’s Not Just Old Age

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 19, 2015 in Personal |

I am reminded, in a timely post from an online friend here in Germany, of how easy it is to forget, to lose, to grow out of the habit of using a language. In my recent post on various problems in the local area, I constantly referred to a certain road structure as being a […]

For A Moment There: Couch Potato Hopes And Dreams

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 10, 2015 in Internet |

Finally, an application for your smartphone which really makes sense! For all those who are tired of having to move closer to the television, stand up and get a beer from the kitchen, reach a remote control that has slipped over the edge of your favorite sitting unit and is lying on the floor just […]

Correcting My Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 12, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I think it must be because I do not look like an American that some people believe they can correct my use of my own Mother Tongue, especially when they have spent so much time learning the language in school. Today I was peacefully making a few notes ready for a future piece of writing, […]

Comments: The Use Of The English Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 29, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Writing comments is not easy, or so it appears when I go through some of the wonderful outpourings various websites and news media allow to infest their pages. We all know that spammers don’t write comments themselves, they have a special template which constructs some form of something which might pass as a real comment, […]

Start By Learning To Spell

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 24, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Apparently there is an old saying: if you can’t beat them, join them. Sorry, but I can’t do that in this case, I just can’t. It is something which has annoyed me for such a long time that I simply overlook it now – well, mostly – automatically assume a meaning for what has been […]

Using Words With Double Meanings

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 19, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Language, that wonderful means of communicating which everyone understands, but which can so easily be misinterpreted or taken out of context. You just need to look at the number of politicians who, having had their ill-thought words quoted in the press come straight back and claim they have been taken out of context, that their […]
