Fakeologists Jim & Frank dialogue with Contrarious

Be the 1st to vote.

Good call with Dave (Contrarious), who has a great radio voice (sounds like Dan Duran, radio host in Toronto area). Dave also likes the term fakeologist. Good to see it propagate: memes take time.

This is part 2, follow links below to part 1 if interested.

The unstoppable march of the upward inflection?

“Whether it’s called the upward inflection, high-rising terminal or simply “uptalk”, the habit of making statements sound like questions is a genuine linguistic mystery, writes Chris Stokel-Walker.

The habit of ending statements with a stress that makes them sound a bit like questions is one that winds many people up.” It’s infuriating.

You can blame us Australians for the upward inflection. It started here in the 1960s (upwards inflection indicates tentativeness and uncertainty, blamed on our colonial cultural cringe), then was transported to the UK by way of popular TV soap operas, like “Neighbours” in the 80s, then gradually worked its way across the Atlantic. I noticed Henry Makow employs it routinely.
