Hillary Clinton’s lying about the sniper fire non-incident in Bosnia led to her defending herself by misusing a little used word.
She claims she did “mis-speak”.
To misspeak is to mispronounce or use a word incorrectly. But which part of lying about an incident is mis-speaking?
Has she been reading ‘Lanark’ by Alistair Gray set in the land of “unthank”?
Perhaps we can add a few more words to the English language.
To swear is to mis-compliment.
To hack someone at football is to mis-tackle.
To murder is to mis-propogate.
To crash your car is to mis-drive.
To miss a putt on the golf course is to mis-not miss.
To bunk school is to mis-attend.
Any more thoughts folks?
