Pick a fight!

Posted by on February 10, 2011

OK, not literally. I would hate to think that my little blog was responsible for an increase in petty violence around the world! I am referring to the entertaining and useful site Google Fight. The site was originally created as a fun way to find out which names, phrases or things are most popular on the Internet, although Google Fight is also a useful tool for the language learner. Not sure whether gaol or jail is the most popular spelling of that particular word? Fight it out. You can also make a fight to discover more about the way English phrases are used, for instance ‘take me to the cinema’ versus ‘bring me to the cinema’, the ‘winners’ are bound to be the most natural way of phrasing something and so a really useful guide to the learner. Check out this great article by Jamie Keddie on onestopenglish for more information.
