At last! A thread for those bits of linguistic creativity noteworthy enough to catch your attention but not really deserving of a post of their own.

Yesterday I overheard someone verb "cranny". As I recall, the utterance was "You can always find a nook where you can cranny down and study." (Context: a tour guide introducing the campus library.)

What y'all got?

I not infrequently catch myself (unintentionally) using we guys/us guys by analogy with you guys as a first person plural inclusive pronoun (with no implied gender, like you guys, which for me is genderless).

I've heard this from other people before (even people that are not where I'm from) so I'm not quite sure how widespread this is, but for times between 12am and 1am, I use "midnight ____" rather than "twelve ___". Ex: 12:30am is "midnight thirty" instead of "twelve thirty"

I'm pretty sure I have 'like' as a topic marker, although whether this is particularly interesting considering how widespread it is I don't know.

Also, I have 'to be like' for 'said' when quoting speech but indirect quotes always take 'said'.

I use whole nother often myself.
I also have eachother as one word with a syllable split of /i.tSV.D@r/.
I don't know how common these uses are, but among my friends we say 'domed' for hit on the head, and 'heated' for pissed off.

I have unselfconsciously used such phrasing as "a hundred nother fucking dollars" before. And I say unselfconsciously in that I was unaware I'd said anything interesting, until my listener balked. I don't think it was a speech error. I suspect I have quite a range of things I can stick between "a...nother", I may even have it as a productive pattern, but of course with self-analysis it's always difficult to be certain.

I sometimes catch myself repeating the preposition again at the end of the PrepC. In German, that is.

Post subject:  Re: The Innovative Usage Thread

I will attest to using "whole 'nother" on a regular basis, but as far as I remember I haven't used any other infixes between "a...nother".

Post subject:  Re: The Innovative Usage Thread

Recently I've noticed my self using "manually" in cases where normal procedures are being overriden, regardless of the method by which this is achieved. For instance, my student was late swiping out today so I swiped her out "manually", i.e. I opened up the timekeeping programme and input her time out. If anything, swiping the card in the timeclock would seem a more "manual" activity than typing (although obviously both involve use of the hands).

Post subject:  Re: The Innovative Usage Thread

Hm, I forgot one! I went through a time where I would unconsciously say "personally" to mean "in my opinion" or "I think."

"Personally, this game is awesome," for example. It's basically gone away by now, but I thought that was an interesting usage of the word.

Agreed.

As for me, I say "a whole nother", but I don't think I parse it as separate words.
