We’ve all had the experience of mishearing what has been said to us. Sometimes what we think we heard sounds out of place and inappropriate to the moment, so we ask the speaker to repeat what they said.

Sometimes we misunderstand simply because the person we’re hearing is coming from a different background and we get lost in their diction or their terminology. Some years back I even wrote a limerick to demonstrate this tendency.

I beggeth thy pardon?

What didst thou say?

I hateth to hearken thee, speaking this way!

It hurteth my head to decipher thy word.

“Rad, cool, chill out and get down”? How absurd!
