The word “Frame” has a few definitions, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

1. To construct by fitting and uniting the parts of the skeleton of (a structure)

2. Plan, shape, formulate- for example framed a new method of achieving their purpose.

3. To devise falsely (as a criminal charge) or contrive the evidence against (an innocent person) so that a verdict of guilty is assured. 

4. To fit or adjust especially for something or for an end

5. Obsolete : produce

Manic Monday

So what is the difference between “Flesh out” and “Flush out” and idea?

To “flesh out” is to take the parts given and figure out how to put them together. as the Urban Dictionary explains, the term comes from the artworld, particualrly drawing. A lot of cartoonists and drawers will draw the person in a line-contour form, to help with proportions and more. Once the guidelines and proportions are done, you draw the actual body, or “flesh”, and face and the other details.

This should not be mixed with “Flush out” which is a whole different story. it means to force out of hiding , and although it’s something you might want to do with your idea, don’t use it in a sentence!

Wishing you all to flesh out successful idea this week!

Word Wednesday

Today’s word is BALL.

While the word is common to most of us, its spelling isn’t as intuitive. It shouldn’t be confused with BAWL, which has the exact same pronunciation but means something totally different.

Most of us would have had a fun time playing with balls in games of soccer, basketball or golf. But the picture above illustrates a whole new ‘ball game’. =p

Laugh and take it easy, folks.

The Tuesday Talk

The above example perfectly illustrates how confusing (and humorous at the same time) the English language can be. There are words in the English language that could be a verb or a noun, depending on how you use it!

‘Toast’ is both a verb as well as a noun. ‘Toast’ as a verb usually applies to the act of heating bread in toaster oven. As a noun, it refers to the bread itself. This could create a lot of confusion in speech and writing!

This is just one example of the many tricky pot-holes that one would come across in his or her journey of English learning. Using Ginger Software would guide you along and help you to avoid falling into these potholes.

So download Ginger to avoid embarrassing mistakes and improve your English communication!

By the way, have we already mentioned that it is free?
