    ESL ELT ELL ELD ESOL EFL TESOL ESOL English language twinglish joke ingles wordplay pun dinosaur theaurus
    • Whatsofunny WHAT DO YOU CALL A DINOSAUR WITH AN EXTENSIVE VOCABULARY? A THESAURUS. What’s so funny about this? When I read this joke the first thing that crossed my mind was a question: How DO they name dinosaurs? That’s the thing about this day and age almost any factual question that occurs to you can be answered by going to google or some other internet search engine. The word dinosaur itself comes from Greek roots, from the words “deinos” meaning “terrible” and “sauros,” which means “lizard.” It reminds me that Sinclair gasoline, which no longer exists as a brand, used to have a mascot, or logo, of Dino the Dinosaur. Note the change in pronunciation. Some obvious examples of dinosaurs are Tyrannasaurus Rex and Brachiosaurus, the first one means a “tyrant king of the lizards”; the second one means “lizard whose arms are longer than its legs”. They would take some characteristic of the dinosaur and add “saurus” or a similar suffix to come up with the name. In the joke we’re faced with the job giving a name to a smarty pants dinosaur who has a large, extensive vocabulary. In this case we have a Greek root homonym in the word “tresauros”, meaning treasure or storehouse. This was the word which eventually became “thesaurus”, a dictionary of synonyms. In all of these words, what we have in English is the Greek root put though a Latin filter, thus the “os” has been changed to “us”, and an H has been added to the T. Of course, the real joke is that a thesaurus does sound exactly like it could be a dinosaur. Let’s see, since we’re borrowing words from Greek and Latin, if we use the French word for tea THÈ, spelled t-h-e, a thesaurus could be a Giant Lizard who Sips Tea. And THAT’s what’s so funny!
