Hi baiterfriends,

Though my spoken English is pretty much a native level of American English, I'm always surprised of finding out that I really don't know that much of English when I open my sincere lad letters...

Is: "compliment of the day (to you)" just typical laddish?
and.. sorry to ask, but whats a "next of kin" and what does "greedy" mean?

Thankssssssss

"compliments of the day (week, month)" is a typical way to kiss a** of the lads.
"next of kin" means relatives, family.
and "greedy"? check this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greedy

[pedantic]

Next of kin: your nearest relative. The person who will inherit if you die.

This is a commonly used phrase, but the language is archaic. "Kin" means family but is very rarely used. "Next of" is not a construction that would be used in modern English.

[/pedantic]

Oh no, I live in a backwoods non-modern part of US! Very Happy
Archaic sounds so much,,,,umh,,, ?interesting.

Actually, "next of kin" in this (central us) little town/country setting, is pretty much routine when dealing with legal matters involving money, death, and the like. As is kinfolk and some other words

Don't feel bad, justjay, I'm from the sticks where "next of kin" and "kinfolk(s)" are an everyday part of the vernacular. So are a lot of combinations of words, my most commonly used is "hang on a minute" which I'm bad to say really fast, and it's one single word, and like two syllables at best. Very Happy

If you come from the little backwater village I was brung up in, this is pronounced " Justamo"

Also, instead of "Please give that to me" We say "Gizit."

I had a gud ejucashun I did.

In the US, phrases like " Top of the day to you, sir" and "Greetings, Madam" are used by the older people, generally upper crust, it seems to come from earlier generations, and it is even perceived as a British colloquial. Think "Frasier Crane". Other than elderly, it would be used by someone trying to impress someone, usually with rapport-breaking results. For instance, if a man in his 20s said "Top of the day to you, madam" to a hot chick in her 20s, she would instantly classify him as a "loser" or "clueless". So if a socially skilled person were to read that opener, their radar would instantly be put on alert.

Now I know where I'm going wrong. It's either that, or my opening line of "Seasons Greetings" in the middle of June. Shocked I usually save "Cavalry Greetings" for the second date. Never had to use it yet though.

Many thanks to all of you.... Now I'm understanding things much better. It's just that those lads out there have.. .....a special way of communicating! Laughing

Thanks again!
