Up Yours Up Mine ... Spelling test.

Lovers of the English language might enjoy this. It is yet another example of why people learning English have trouble with the language.  Learning the nuances of English makes it a difficult language. (But then, that's probably true of many languages.)   

 There is a two-letter word in English that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word,  and that word is 'UP.'  It is listed in the dictionary as being used 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 UP, and 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 and we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix < B> UP the old car. 
At other times the little word has a 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.
 the
 ? 

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 UPabout UP</ I> ! 

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of 
UP look 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 UP. When it rains, it wets 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 , so time to shut UP

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



Don't screw 
up. Send this on to everyone you look up in your address book.    
 
 
Now I'll shut up
