“I’ll be back soon; I’m going on a break”. “The workload has become unbearable. I need a break”.
Have you ever uttered those words to yourself or to another?
‘Break’ has been associated with damage for countless ages. So, it’s only fair to say it seems strange to be using it in the context of a restoration of some kind.
When did you last use the word ‘break’? What context did you refer it to?
Yes, yes I know what some of you are shouting out. One is in the verb form, and the other a noun. But, putting that aside, does it not fascinate you that the English language is so precariously fashionable, yet so intrinsically evil?
