Two times means TWICE

4 Comments

Where is the word Twice? I am getting really sensitive to how “two times” is used instead of “twice”.

Two times means twice. Twice means two times. I prefer the word twice.I said to Mr Furlong the other night when the news reader said “two times” instead of twice, “What’s wrong with the word “twice”? It’s far more elegant than “two times”!”

Would you believe it? After that, EVERYONE on the telly said “two times”. TWO TIMES for god’s sake!

What is wrong with the succinct word twice?

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. More likely it’s two times stupid rather than twice as intelligent!

  2. Just read “Two Times” in The Daily Mail. Pillocks. Keeping down with the illiterates no doubt. who needs to speak half decent English any more?
