a whole nother

language and thoughts about it

Monday, October 24, 2005



I heared "whole nother" several times from the hurricanes, but I was never close enough to a computer, pen, or paper to write the exact quote. But I did notice that I only heard whole nother on the weather channel. I never heard it on any of the other news networks, even during their forecasts. This means that most of the coverage on the weather channel is probably unscripted, while the coverage on the other channels is not; I highly doubt that any script would intentionally contain "whole nother."

I also received the following from Sean:

p25, David James Duncan's The Brothers K,

"...when I heard papa singing How can there be a cherry that has no stone?, which was a whole 'nother song."
