Why does a “soufflé” make a good phrase? Why does a “chefs knife” make a good phrase? Why does a “bomber” make a good phrase? Why does a “knife” sound like the words “cut” and “knife?”
And, perhaps most important, why does an Irish person use a phrase like “bob”? Is this a linguistic feature or a cultural feature, just as, say, the Spanish phrase “jejejo” (go home) is a cultural feature but is not linguistically marked as any kind of linguistic feature, no matter what one feels about the word “jejo.”
What if we did something more than just ask about word usage? What if we had actually tried to figure out whether anyone in Ireland has a very specific notion of the word for “tomato”?
After going through a long, exhaustive, and thoroughly scholarly search in Irish dictionaries, books, and newspaper articles, I discovered there is no such thing as an established English word for a potato potato, or for a “bob” bob, or a “chefs knife” bob, or, most importantly, for anything except a tomato. (Yes, that is an “English word.”) We have a lot of ideas about what “a potato” is and a lot of ideas about what “a tom-toto pie” is, but no one would know for sure if there really are any particular words or phrases, words or phrases, that everyone in the country knows.
Losing more weight can cause health problems, but the effects may be different across ethnic groups, according to a new study in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Weight regain is widespread, especially in people with Type 2 diabetes, so research has focused on the role of weight loss on heart disease, stroke, and some cancers. But previous studies have been unable to make definitive statements on the health risks of weight loss, and other research has shown these outcomes could vary widely by ethnic or racial group.
Now, researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Harvard University have analyzed the epidemiology of obesity, using information from about 17,000 U.S. residents who had annual medical exams between 1993 and 2004.
The study participants were about 55% African Americans, 41% Chinese Americans, 18% Filipinos, 11% Indians, 5% whites, 3% Hispanics, and 6% black. All respondents were between age 30
