I am so tired of Americans talking about how horrible “clicks” are.
A click is a small noise, often caused by something hard tapping on, hitting, or sliding past something else that is also hard. A clique, on the other hand, is a small, inward-focused, exclusionary group of people.
The two words do not rhyme … the second one being of French derivation and being pronounced ‘cleek.’
That’s my rant of the day.

My Canadian sister-in-law says “soar-ry”.
I don’t mean to be a dique but… Sorry, it’s a short “o”.
Yes, I say “soar-ry” too. I guess we all have our linguistic oddities!
Hehe… I work in a school district in California. It gets much, much worse. Especially among the staff with masters degrees – particularly those with language/English focus 😀
