Conguitos y negritas
Álex Grijelmo
EL PAÍS; 26.09.2021

‘Algunas personas han decidido que las palabras significan lo que a ellas les ofende. Hubo un tiempo en que surgieron protestas razonables, y por eso mucha gente huye de las expresiones “le ha engañado como a un chino”, “esto es una merienda de negros” o “menuda gitanería te hizo”. Y nos cuidamos de usar como insultos los vocablos “trastornado” o “autista”, entre otros, porque eso denigra a quienes sufren algún trastorno real.

A partir de estos éxitos, una fracción de sus promotores cogió carrerilla y ha ido tejiendo una telaraña que corre el riesgo de resultar molesta incluso para otras personas tan antirracistas como ellos. Así, “tener la negra” se presenta como una ofensa contra los negros, lo mismo que “dinero negro” o “un negro futuro”, expresiones que se refieren a la falta de claridad o transparencia, y no al color. Con ello, el uso racista que una palabra pueda tener en determinados contextos se extiende a cualquiera de los sentidos posibles de ese mismo término, sin reparar en las distintas intenciones con que se pronuncia en cada caso. Más o menos como si el insulto “payaso” proferido contra alguien impidiera mencionar la palabra al salir del circo. El uso que se puede proscribir es el primero, no el segundo.’

Seven benefits of walking …

Hannah Roberts

Insider; 17.06.2020

‘Walking is a form of exercise that can significantly improve your physical and mental health. Not only can it extend your life and prevent disease, but it can also boost your energy and mood.

In addition, studies show that if you walk regularly and quickly enough, it could be the only aerobic exercise you need to keep your heart and lungs healthy.

It’s also accessible, easy, and free. So if you’re one of the 47% of adults in the US who don’t meet the CDC’s Physical Activity Guidelines for aerobic activity, then walking is a habit worth pursuing and keeping.’

18 Most Common Grammar Mistakes

1. Run-on Sentence or Comma Splice

‘A run-on sentence is a sentence that joins two independent clauses without punctuation or the appropriate conjunction. A comma splice is similar to a run-on sentence, but it uses a comma to join two clauses that have no appropriate conjunction. Fixing a run-on sentence or a comma splice can be accomplished in one of five different ways.

***Incorrect sentence: “Rachel is very smart, she began reading when she was three years old.”

Solution 1: Separate the clauses into two sentences. “Rachel is very smart. She began reading when she was three years old.”
Solution 2: Replace the comma with a semicolon. “Rachel is very smart; she began reading when she was three years old.”
Solution 3: Replace the comma with a coordinating conjunction. “Rachel is very smart, for she began reading when she was three years old.”
Solution 4: Replace the comma with a subordinating conjunction. “Rachel is very smart because she began reading when she was three years old.”
Solution 5: Replace the comma with a semicolon and transitional word or phrase. “Rachel is very smart; as a result, she began reading when she was three years old.” ‘
