    Hello dear fellas

    "
    Ok" maybe there's no chance you would've never used this word

    ...i knew it ! ...so have you ever made a stop and thought what does't mean?! no problem if u didn't.. cuz you're about to know


    the most common is that it's the first letters of "
    Oll Korrect" !!!! but there's another theory that says it's originally waw-kay
    waw means yes
    kay means indeed. it's used for emphasising

    so
    OK may mean yes indeed or all right

    this is one word! and we'll be waiting for your participations, any word you find similar just post it with a little explanation


    take as a game can you
    ?

    Another "word" or expression that we encounter a lot and may or may not know its meaning
    it's "i.e."
    1

    what does it mean? if you don't already know ! ... it's used with the same meaning of " in other words " or "in this case" or simply "that is". We use it to explain something more

    ok, you may know this and i see you got bored but wait a second! what's the two letters i.e.
    it's
    internet explorer, ....surprised? hhh just kiddin' !! it's an abbreviation for the Latin phrase id est

    translation: that is
    a random example:
    you will see that the declaration begins with a type, that is the type of the function itself (i.e., the type of the datum that will be returned by the function with the return statement)


    though i didn't get that well after two different explanations but at least i understood there are actually two different explanations and that's the purpose of the example !!!!1


    usage: i.e., for american english and i.e. for british
    the comma is what differs you see !

    come on take it as a game a contest a dictionnary! whatever

    i hope this is being useful for everyone
    it's not gonna get too popular like the other games i know but let's see

    Hello again i remember'd another one

    it's e.g. it has been facing me for a while and i can picture it saying "oO the guy doesn't know but my first letters!!" but with a little search i figured out that e.g. is Mister
    exempli gratia and it means obviously for example

    so say hi to Mr. exempli gratia
