UP!



 
Just ONE example of why English is SO difficult to learn . . . . .

Think about it.  
                 UP
 


 
Read until the end.....you'll laugh....
This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word 
is 
'UP.'  It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky 
or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning,
 why do we 
wake 
UP


At a meeting, why does a topic come
 UPWhy do 
we speak UPand why are the 
officers UP for 
election
 and why is it UP to the secretary to 
write
 UP a 
report? We call
 UP our friends, 
brighten 
UP a room, polish UP the 
silver, warm 
UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We 
lock 
UP the house and  
fix
 UP the old 
car. 


At other times this little word has real special 
meaning. People stir 
UP trouble, 
line 
UP for 
tickets, work 
UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. 

To be dressed is one 
thing but to be dressed UP is 
special.

And this UP is confusing:  A 
drain must be opened 
UP because it is stopped  UP.

We open
 UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at 
night
 We seem to be pretty mixed 
UP about UP ! 

To be 
knowledgeable about the proper uses of 
UP,

look UP the word UP in the dictionary.. In a desk-sized 
dictionary, it takes 
UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about 
thirty definitions 

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP  a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may 
wind UP with a hundred or more. 

When it threatens to rain, we say it is 
clouding 
UP . When the sun comes out
we say it is clearing UPWhen it rains, it 
soaks UP the 
earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on & on, but I'll wrap 
it 
UP, for now  ........my time is UP !


Oh....one more thing: 
What is the first thing you 
do in the morning & the last thing you do at 
night?
 

U  
   P
 !


 


 


 

Did that one crack you UP?


Don't MESS UP. Send this on to everyone you 
look 
UP in your address 
book..or not...it's 
UP to you.   
  
Now 
I'll shut 
UP
