PostWorked Up with WAIS (Sasha Pack, USA, 08/31/17 8:12 am)
Congratulations on 11 years, JE, and thanks.
I don't have a comment to post to the Forum right now, but wanted to check in to let you know I am still learning, thinking, and getting worked up, thanks to WAIS and the work you do.
JE comments: Thank you, Sasha! It's hard to believe that our meeting at U Buffalo was already 2 and 1/2 years ago. What's new in your scholarly life?
"Worked up" is a precious English idiom. It has little to do with up, and nothing at all with work. Is there an equivalent phrase in other languages? Spanish has "estremecido/a," which also does duty as shivery/quivery, and also "alterado/a," which is plain old upset. But these are specific words. "Worked up" is something slightly different.
We're Worked up With WAISWorld: WWUWW!
