“The office is drunk with engineers.”
Filip, Odd as I just read the office in Norway had tea and coffee. Comments mentioned øl and vin with the German and Italians. Which group are you hanging out with? Room for more?? 2Jun17
Quick, call an exterminator!
Hovercraften min er full av ål!
"It's full of stars!"
I wonder if there's any relation between the word "engineer" and "ingenious"
I wondered something alike. If it has to do with engine - ingenious - genious - gene - generate - generator. Everything seems to be freaking related!!
It has to do with the French word "ingénieur", from which the Brits, and therefore the other Anglophone countries, got "engineer".
It's completely different ethymology :D
Can I also say "full with" in stead of "filled with"?
It's either "full of" or "filled with".
crowded is similar with full
I want to kill myself I've heard this sentence thousands of times please stop it stupid owl
It's common, it's just to get the sentence in your head. It turns out older people or those with memory problems need to repeat these sentences much more than young'uns.
"I've tried spraying in Biotechnology, it doesn't convert them." (Adapted from Chris Joel's line)
But seriously, should you pronounce it with an actual French accent or add a slight Norwegian influence to it?
Nobody asked, so I've got another stupid one :D
It's the first time in this course I'm hearing g sounding like "sh". I expected exactly the same sound as in "engelsk" or "trenger" or ending of "restaurant". This sounds like inskjeniører. Why is that?
Because it derives from the french "ingénieur".
An office full of physicists would be even worse.
Is it also right to say 'The office is plenty of engineers'?
