I love analyzing my native language, American English, and helping non-native speakers make sense of it. I've been doing this for fun with friends who speak English as a second language for nearly 30 years. I would like to first thank A.D., C.F. and E.A., and now P.G., for inspiring me to finally write this stuff down!

If you are 'floored' by something, it means you are shocked and can't believe what you're hearing.
-I can't believe you didn't get the job! I'm just floored!
-Yeah, me, neither. I'm still in shock.
