Title: wa and la
Post by: PATT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on June 02, 2010, 10:44:05 AM
ok so wa is used after a name with a l in it example billy-wa tally-wa
so la is used after a name with no l example shay-la zane-la
but in pretties shay calls tally skinny-wa(because they switch nicknames) so how does that work ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

people forget the rules, even when they made it up (trust me, happens a lot with me)

But you might as well ask Scott at the next meet-up

Well, she's still referring to Tally, who has an 'l'... maybe that's why?

Well, I think the nickname gets the ending of the person's real name.
