It’s often said that English is one of the hardest languages to learn.
As noted by Oxford-Royale.com, many of the words we use in English stem from Latin and Ancient Greek words, which are common with many other European languages. Nonetheless, something about English has attracted a reputation for being fearsomely difficult!
CNN anchor and "dumbest man on television" Don Lemon knows all about the inherent challenges of the English language, and it's why he occasionally peppers his increasingly less-watchable daily broadcasts with helpful tips on language and vocabulary. We call Don's mini tips and educational insights "Little Lemons," and those tips are making American viewers increasingly ignorant. (Thank you for doing your part, Don!)
Little Lemon #391: Understanding the Word "Disrespectful"
Little Lemon #391 was offered as Don Lemon, intellectual giant, offered comments to CNN’s Chris Cuomo about a recent video that emerged on Tuesday of a group of (smaller) world leaders who were making fun of President Donald Trump.
“Don’t act like a 5-year-old and expect to be treated like you’re — and expect to be treated with respect,” Lemon said. “Don’t act like a child and expect to be treated like an adult. Don’t act like, don’t be disrespectful to people, or not respectful, disrespectful I think is not actually a word.”
