I heard that English is the only language with a word for “fun.”A quick Google search suggests that there’s a Spanglish word, too – borrowed, I suspect.
- Do any of you know this story about “fun” to be false? Or to be true?
- If language is integral to thought, how would people think differently without a word equivalent to “fun”?
- If true, does that signify that we Anglophones are particularly prone to frivolousness?
This is not a test. You won’t be graded for any response or lack thereof.
