What type of people use Yahoo Answers? Topic: Homework funny answers
July 20, 2019 / By Clemency
Question: I was curious what types of people are using Yahoo Answers, and the reasoning behind using it. Are most of the people that use Yahoo Answers just inept at using a search engines, and are those that answer questions on Yahoo Answers just adept at using a search engines? I mean, certainly the top answerers on the leaderboard aren't know-it-alls nor do they sit in a room made of encyclopedias. Can't count how many "copy and paste" answers I've come across, and with no mention of where their sources are. Also, will there ever be a way to screen the kids that are simply trying to cheat their homework?

Well I dont know about others, but I know why I use it.. I use it mostly when I'm bored, when I got tired of eading The Great Gatsby, or just dont have any homework left, or nothing else to study for tomorrow; when my brain just got burned of studying for the next SAT; when I finished all the movies I had rented; or simply when I wanna see other people's opinions, people of every state, any country, it's just amzing, not just a cold information in a "search engine". Google is not going to make me laugh, or think the way real people make me think in this site. It's not going to give the opportunity to debate or express my opinions, that's why I choose Yahoo answers. I dont know others but I really try to answer a question using what I know, there're exceptions, but if I just copy and paste, well, that's not funny!! Just tell me: what is the purpose for someone to answer as an open encyclopedia, making everybody think he or she is the smartest, if the people you're answering to do not know you and never will?? It doesnt make any sense. I'm not gonna lie to you, I've tried to use some help from the users in some homeworks, but at the end, none of them has ever really helped me. I remember the last help I asked for was for a St Valentine's day poem, they gave me their ideas, and at the end I myself created a poem!! So, what they did was inspire me.

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.

Copy and paste first...that REALLY annoys me, when credit is not given to the source. I try not to do it too often, I would rather read the info and put it in my own words and then add the source (I usually answer in health so I feel this is important). I'm good at using search engines, I don't even own an encyclopedia! Most of the questions I answer in a day could be found with 2 clicks of the mouse...not hard to do, but I'm not complaining as it earns me points. As to me. I'm a middle aged ex nurse (cant work because of health problems) and I spend a lot of hours on here most days.

There are all types of people on here of all ages. A lot of people are just lazy I guess and find it easier to just ask a question and let someone else find out the answer for them. Some people may not really know how to use the search engine. The copy and paste really gets to me they should include their source. Lot of answers on here are from experiences of life. As for the homework there is a section for it. If it is just to assist that is fine but not to do the whole think. Some come on and want a whole report written for them!!!! lol My opinion!!!!

I stumbled across this site about an hour ago pretty much accidently. It looked interesting and I have been on it since then. This probably applies to a large amount of people upon finding the site and perhaps people who enjoys giving advice visit here most frequently. Or maybe those who enjoys trying to answer bizarre and strange trivia.

Everything you have said is true. There are a vast array of people who come in here from kids to bored adults. There are people who post from their own intelligence or experiences and those who just paste the answers from the net. I fall into the mommy category.

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.
