Do You Know What I Mean?*
This was a personal project exploring language and language barriers. As native speakers, we rarely stop to think about how illogical many of the things we really say are – we’re just used to them. Unless you’ve been brought up speaking English, how can you possibly begin to learn all these oddities? It’s little wonder that people trying to learn English end up feeling confused. One of the hardest things about English is that although there are rules, there are lots of exceptions to those rules – so just when you think you’ve got to grips with a rule, something comes along to shatter what you thought you knew by contradicting it. This project is an exploration into the oddities and irregularities of the English language. The aim is to create a collection of print, video and interactive pieces called Do You Know What I Mean, which will highlight how bizarre English is but also difficult it can be to learn.
