    Hi! On Saturday and Sunday I watched on TV the Skate Canada 2012.
    The spectacle finished on the “Hallelujah” song composed by Leonard Cohen.
    Isn’t “Hallelujah” a religious term for dead people?
    Instead of joy it was something sad.

    Guys,
    Hurricane Sandy is supposed to hit U.S. forecasters predicted the the landfall would be devastating and life-threatening in NewYork and some other cuties. The hurricane is expected to come ashore tonight and rampage the land in its path as it churning northwards. Canada will partially be effected by the hurricane sandy as we expecting waves on the Great lakes as high as 7 meter with howling winds and pouring rain.
    Let’s hope U.S. will ride the storm out with a minimum damage.

    So far ,The hurricane has claimed for 66 lives in its path.

    All forces with you

    Peter ,

    Hi Tania,
    as far as I know ‘Hallelujah’ means something like ‘praise God’. I think it´s more a joyful exclamation.
    Best regards
    Nele

    I’ve listened to the podcast, about getting a divorce.

    You guys are great! Keep it up. I think am going to be a regular in your blog and your site as well, because I need to improve my English speaking skills.

    Dear ESLers,

    I’m very much interested in certain linguistic disciplines like word formation for instance.
    Can anyone tell me wether or not ‘prenup’ belongs to clippings?
    Unfortunately, I couldn’t find proper information on the Internet. My guess is “yes”, because it is a shortened, word class mantaining “version” of ‘prenuptial agreement’.

    What do you think?

    I’m looking forward to your answers.

    Yours,
