Where are Yahoo Answers people? Topic: Survey questions for students about their school homework
July 17, 2019 / By Felise
Question: Is it me or are the people on Yahoo Answers getting less and less? The questions im posting are taking longer and longer to answer. And if they do get answered they are by trolls that talk nonsense. The other half are people posting links to sites to make money on surveys or make money quick. Seriously where is Yahoo to fix this and what happened to the real people?

I feel your pain. I used to go to law enforcement/ethics etc. and you just get the same question or stupid story and also as you mentioned the sales pitches, people answering with links or porn sites etc. I feel the same way that this is a great forum to find new ideas and/or legitimate assistance with real problems and help each other with research etc. but its always the same group of 3 year old mentalities that make the rest of us who enjoy a real exchange of ideas or assistance go elsewhere. I don't know what the Yahoo people are doing but I can tell you I do hit the report abuse button often and have familiarized myself with the rules of conduct but even then I am sure if one user is booted off they just relog on with a different user name and it is “game on” for the childish minds again. I can tell you however I have found the most satisfaction in the homework help section under education and for the most part they are high school and some college students seeking help with essays, thesis statements and legitimate help with their studies. The only ones in there that bother me are the ones who want you to fill out their science worksheet for the day or define a word which would have took two seconds to go to an online dictionary but then sometimes they may not know where to look. The only thing I can theorize again is the ones that have nothing better to do but show their you know what on here just keep coming back as a different user and trying to control all of them if I were in Yahoo's shoes would be an ongoing task. Maybe they will get tired one day or get a job and find someone else to act like a child with and that will be that. Until then I will keep on with legitimate questions that I can look up or know something about and always follow up with a legitimate reference and resource, report the trash and the rest I leave alone if it is not my area of expertise. Lastly, it is amazing how many people just respond to the idiots and their questions designed to elicit angry responses instead of just reporting abuse. I think if more people did that the numbers of those with no reason to be on here would begin to dwindle but then again I can see with the thousands of people on here and the ability to reincarnate oneself as a different user it would and is a daunting task.

Yes . One of the world's biggest Problem of Language and Education . Language is more than anything else makes us human... Unlike most other languages English doesn't have a set phonetic pronunciation for every word. Spelling - Because of the many changes in pronunciation which have occurred since a written standard developed, and the retention of many historical idiosyncrasies in spelling, English spelling is difficult even for native speakers to master. This difficulty is shown in such activities as spelling bees that generally require the memorization of words. English speakers may also rely on computer tools such as spell checkers more than speakers of other languages, as the users of the utility may have forgotten, or never learned, the correct spelling of a word. The generalizations that exist are quite complex and there are many exceptions leading to a considerable amount of rote learning. The spelling system causes problems in both directions - a learner may know a word by sound but not be able to write it correctly (or indeed find it in a dictionary), or they may see a word written but not know how to pronounce it or mislearn the pronunciation. Varieties of English There are thriving communities of English native speakers in countries all over the world, and this historical diaspora has led to some noticeable differences in pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar in different countries, as well as those variations which exist between different regions, and across the social strata, within the same country. Even within the British Isles, there are significant regional language differences . Yes . a language that is spelled based on what you hear. etymology is a science of words and the words often are spelled differently than what the ear hears. Example of phonetics: Run, example of etymology: Emepheral In a "phonetic" language, letters, groups of letters, consonants and vowels always sound the same. English is NOT phonetic- case in point- there, their, They're all SOUND the same (are phonetic), but have drastically different meanings. another example are the sounds PH and F. ie. elePHant, and oFten. they sound the same, if you didnt know the word, if i asked you to write it you may be wrong. Languages that ARE phonetic are Kanata ,Japanese and Hindi . It is a very rare occasion that you will see words in this language that sound the same but are spelled different (like the their, there, They're example) In a way, this makes phonetic languages easier to read and write because in italian, if you hear a word like GELATO, if you have a grasp of the language, you should be able to spell it right because "J" has a VERY different sound than "G". This is why so many people have trouble learning english, even after being submersed in it for many years. When IM and TXT messaging arrived, people wanted to message quickly and a new set of shorthand developed from the need. However, English is still alive and well. I have a good friend who teaches HS English. Here is a version of her speech at the beginning of each semester. "My name is Mrs. X and this is junior English. We will be learning English this semester, and you will be required to write several essays and papers. You need to be aware that all of these writing assignments need to be written in proper English. Any paper that is turned in with technological shorthand will receive an automatic failing grade. There will be no exceptions." And with that....the class starts and she has no problems. In addition, the language is continuing to grow, with at least 25,000 words per year being added. I have found a hidden talent I never knew I had. I am able to embrace and encourage this new talent within myself So my latest Recipe ( language) : Take some Gaelic (original language of the Celts) Add a little Latin (from the Roman invasion) Mix in a lot of Anglo-Saxon (invasions from what is now Denmark and northern Germany) Fold in a little French (1066 and Do not forget If you want to be logical use Hindi alphabets. Because Hindi language is phonetic not English. Phonetic here means that you can predict the pronunciation from the spelling, and predict the spelling from the pronunciation . If you want to be logical , we will have to use Hindi alphabets or we could just use Futhark Kanata Javanese Hanacaraka Hindi or Japanese! alphabets - after all- it is culturally appropriate. Transliteration is the practice of transcribing a word or text written in one writing system into another writing system or system of rules for such practice. From a linguistic point of view, transliteration is a mapping from one system of writing into another, word by word. Transliteration attempts to be exact, so that an informed reader should be able to reconstruct the original spelling of unknown transliterated words. To achieve this objective transliteration may define complex conventions for dealing with letters in a source script which do not correspond with letters in a goal script. How can we make it popular for people who have problem of learning spellings .? Aren't there opportunities here for creative problem solvers? The USA has a multitude of children's publications. Could those in the publishing industry provide bilingual or multilingual newspapers, comic books, magazines, etc. to assist children in language learning ? Therefore in order to bring the farthest standing people into the mainstream of development we will have to teach them this Simplish and students will learn it in play way method. Undoubtedly I can claim it will prove a boon for the general masses of this poor nation. It is a revolutionary step and will become a milestone in the history of human development. Now the question that arises before us is what should be done to teach English to all the Indians in the simplest possible way? How can it be learnt by all? It seems next to impossible to learn ten lakh words for every Indian. So I am inclined to create a modified English named Simplish , which will include about five lakh words and will also facilitate the Indians to interact with the foreigners in the easiest possible way . We can drop out the undesired words, synonyms, undesired homonyms and homophones. I am determined to create an easily intelligible English, which will include our colloquial terms and the most essential words.

There should be a place at the top of the screen that says"hello_".you should be able to click on that and view you're entire profile. I don't think it shows every single question that you've asked, just the recent ones.I Hope that this answer helps

You are seeing two effects: 1. YA is enforcing the rules more than they have the last two years, so serial violators are becoming few. They did answer many questions because they were available, usually chatting. 2. The novelty is wearing off. YA is three years old and like most internet sites, there is an initial group that do not stay. Internet sites come and go. There is even concern facebook and twitter are already slowing down and losing people.

initially, I the two love Yahoo! solutions and Yahoo! 360 nonetheless they're 2 numerous issues. What i like approximately Y! solutions is which you get to help people around the globe on the flaws that difficulty them or they're only involved in. maximum of all, you get to share your awareness to others which for me is a great deal. i particularly do not use my Y! 360 account that lots yet i'd desire to assert that it particularly is efficient coz it helps me stay related to the folk i particularly cherish the main like my buddies and family individuals..And it helps me to advance my creativity and use my complicated innovations.. desire this solutions your question..

1. I can understand you. I'm assuming you are a kid because of your terrible grammar, either that or you are a very uneducated person or just plain lazy. 2. It's not an open internet forum. This isn't like a chatroom, this is a question and answer board. Not a forum where you can just chat with people about anything. 3. I would have done the same thing that guy did.
