Language Nuances

I think a lot about the nuances of words these days. Someone on a forum I go to (a Japanese speaker) was asking about how to use “for crying out loud.” He linked to a Japanese dictionary where “Be quiet, for crying out loud” was translated as something like 静かにして下さい, which is basically “please be quiet.” I tried to explain that “for crying out loud” wasn’t polite…but then the question was “So it’s rude?” And I was like…um…it’s not polite, but it depends on the situation and who you’re talking too and what voice you’re using…My default in this situation is to say “I wouldn’t say it to my grandmother but I’d say it to my kid (if I had one.)” I realize that’s not a very concrete answer. 490 more words
