Nobody Really Talks About Chit

Have you ever noticed that whenever there's chit chat nobody ever really talks about chits?

You see, chit is a word that has several meanings;

An immature girl who has no respect.

A message, memorandum or a certificate.

A signed voucher or memorandum of a small debt. Similar to an IOU.

So you see, people may chat, but they don't really talk a lot about chit. Well, sometimes they'll talk about immature girls of course, but really nobody really uses the word chit in its proper place anymore.

It's sad really. I say we bring back the word chit and use it in its proper contexts. Are you with me?

Too much of the English language isn't used correctly.
More THEN, could OF, should OF, better THEN, wat, cos, your vs you're, their vs they're, etc, etc. Most people I see have not surpassed 3rd grade level spelling. Not much we can do about that except teach the next generations a little better.

I'm thinking about giving up words completely and going with facial expressions and middle fingers.

I thought it was chitter chatter, chit chat just being a shortened version.

So its the chitter , not the chit you refer too.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
One theory is that it was a chitty to let service personnel go off base and....oh go google it yourself!

We could pronounce it in French too. Chit chat. Le chit, le chat. Le #-shat?

I usually come to this forum to choot the chit.

Ah, but that leads us to China unless I'm very much mistaken and Who Flung Dung. The plot thickens, as does possibly the smell.

(No offence to Chinese people btw, it's just a silly children's joke!)

When I read the title of this thread and saw CHITS I immediately thought about The Strange Tale of Dr. 58 and the Quija board transcripts. LOL

Now thats some good Chit!

Or at all.

I have a friend who actually reads a page from the dictionary daily. That man has a vocabulary out of this world. Occasionally, I have to stop him and say, "What!?" It makes a big difference in a persons communication skills.

It's amazing how many english words the average person doesn't know.

We have a word for everything!
