A Darker Green
"Next stop: Saint Stephen's Green."
We've heard that countless times as we hop off the Luas just outside one of Dublin's best-known green areas. The green itself is just as familiar, with its leafy paths, flowerbeds and fountains the setting for many a Dubliner's lunch break, or a lazy weekend picnic. But if you dig deeper, the history of the park is somewhat dark. It hasn't always been such a tranquil spot.
These days when it's sunny you might find a group of teenagers flinging a frisbee around, perhaps to the annoyance of that elderly man nearby who hoped to munch his Tayto sandwich in peace. However, he might consider himself fairly fortunate if he knew about the rowdy and raucous football games that used to churn up the earth in the earlier days of the park. It was not uncommon for a kickabout to turn violent. The shouts of "Pass it!" would grow into something angrier and more aggressive, the kicking feet made contact with the opponents' shins as often as with the ball, and a riot broke out!
Netspeak on the Internet: What Portuguese and Spanish People Are Searching For
Needless to say, the internet impacts daily language use all over the world. The rise of casual net-speaking in forums and on social media makes Netspeak, both fun and challenging for those looking to learn English as a second language, with some unusual insights coming out of Portugal and Spain in particular.
Internet users in Portugal have looked up the meaning of NSFW (not safe for work) more than 20,000 times this year on Google, which indicates they are a very careful, albeit curious, people – let’s just hope they didn’t come across anything too strange during their research!
