Today is World English Day. The UN came up with the idea in 2010 to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity.April 23 was chosen because it is the date traditionally observed as both the birthday and date of death of William Shakespeare.On this day then, we invite you to take a quick quiz on the language. (Answers are given at the end of the article.) 1. The words not only should always be followed by the words? 2. Are you remanded to or remanded in police custody? 3. Is it to date or till date? 4. What is the difference between ingenious and ingenuous? 5. Would you say My friend and I or me and my friend? Answers: 1. The words not only are always followed by the words but also. Example sentence: Not only is Rohan a fantastic batsman but he is also a handy bowler. 2. You are remanded in police custody. A number of people get this wrong, as do a number of newspapers. 3. It is to date. The Oxford dictionary however now recognises till date as being an Indianism. 4. The two words mean very different things. Ingenious means clever, original, and inventive. Ingenuous on the other hand means innocent and unsuspecting. 5. You always say My friend and I. An easy way to remember this is to remind yourself that your friend always comes before you.
