This issue has been bothering me for a while now.
I had this friend who during our school days was so brilliant, in fact, this friend of mine wrote his common entrance at primary 4….at jss1 he wrote his junior WAEC.
Back them we nickname him The “guru”….There was no time I visited him at home, that I wouldn’t see him reading, this guy can read from morning till night…..though I was irritated with his attitude I kept on admiring him because there is nothing in this world that this guy doesn’t know….there is no words in the dictionary that is new to him… he was respected among our peers…..
Suddenly, he was no longer communicating with us with plain English, any small question will always be meant with grammar…
In fact, this guy will go to the market to buy something and will begin to communicate with the market people with grammar…they will just be looking at him as a madman.
Then, one fateful day according to his mother, he ran out with a dictionary screaming “loquacious” all effort to calm him was in vain
the guy is in the asylum right now.
This episode has left me to confuse…..expert in the house can you help me out..
