u are right

Thanks for your concern but my vocab is pretty updated.This forum encourages a healthy exchange of viewpoints,so i would request you not to post comments that infuriate or run down other people and learn to take things in a lighter vein!!!
We are all here for fun so please don't get insolent....


So is your idea of "fun" making an entire topic about the host's usage of ONE word? And that too, a word that was apt to the situation? Was your intention not to run down Mona??Ouch

Are you feigning ignorance about the fact that the usage of wowest/awesomest was part of the script, to promote their sponsor??

But then again can we actually attribute references to 19th century art to JDJ scripters and Mona Singh?

19th Century art ONLY?? Have you had any kind of exposure to British/Canadian literature of the 20th century?? Or will you prefer Mona to stick to words that were coined in the last decade??

I think that should be obvious...oh, but I forgot about comprehension levels....Ermm

How about my asking you a question: "Are you a Mona hater?"

I'm aware that its part of the sponsor, but when did that stop it from being ridiculous. In fact I made sure to state "script" rather than Mona herself.

I believe particular definition of romance you cited is attributed to "romanticism" the era of 19th century arts. Granted romantic arts have been seen in earlier and later periods, but usually romantic refers to that period. It was a tongue in cheek reference to the absurdity of using the non colloquial reference of romance in common place speech that to in a show that would be a postmodern hodge podge at best.

But arts is not my major, neither is English or literature, I could as well be completely ignorant, idiotic and illiterate in both.

a. The usage of the word "romantic" as per the definition I quoted has been in use since well past the 19th century, even though it originated in that period. However, as is the case with most "old-fashioned" terms that percolate to cultures where English is not the mother tongue, it has been "colourwashed" by popular culture to mean a narrow derivation of its original meaning; somewhat like the term "disinterested" which originally meant "without seeking advantage to self" but has now been reduced to "lack of interest".Ermm

b. English literature has not been my major either.

c.  It seems reasonable to assume that Mona was not using the word "romance" in its original sense. (She has never claimed to be intellectual) It was non-colloquial but definitely not non-contextual usage of the word in its popular sense. She used it to mean Sushant's fascination/ preoccupation/fantasising about Madhuri through his dance and his action back in 1994.
My issue is with the people who "measure her corn in their own half-bushel" to use a country term, by mocking her vocabulary when their own is not up to the mark Thumbs Down, and upon running out of rational argument, resort to questioning her defenders on their fan status.

All I can say is, if Mona is so important to some that they notice and comment upon every word she uses, they must be  bigger fans of her than even I am.Tongue
