The jester looks like Martin Short!
‘gay’ is a perfect example of semantic change. It’s literally gone from one meaning to another in under a half a century. Pretty impressive or sad depending on your perspective.
but it’s not a perfect break from the old meaning. i mean you still have the rainbow carryover.
The person who was critical of this post must be anti-semantic
The copy actually makes these seems like pretty good wools. I’d like to get my hands on some o’ that.
This offends me. Grammatically, it should be “more gaily.” There is no excuse for that kind of ignorance in the 21st century. For shame, sir, for shame!
No, it should be “gay.” You wouldn’t say, “I’m making you more gaily.” “Gaily” is an adverb. An adverb would work if he said, “…to make you dress more [adverb]” then “gaily” would be correct. The jester is making her “…more [adjective/describing word].” Therefore, “gay” is the correct term. What was that ignorance you were talking about?
