AIM chat room – ihatework
[10:51] Anna: am i repeating myself if i say “smelly odor”?
[10:52] Bern: technically yes you are repeating yourself
[10:52] Anna: i am?
[10:52] Anna: urgh
[10:52] Queenie: isnt odor just smell? or is it always just bad smell?
[10:53] Bern: odor is just smell
[10:53] raaachem: odor is just smell
[10:53] raaachem: smelly implies that it smells bad
[10:53] Bern: but if you describe something as smelly it’s the same?
[10:53] raaachem: yes
[10:53] raaachem: smelly = bad odor
[10:53] Bern: so you wouldn’t need both words right?
[10:53] Queenie: but smell and odor are nouns like scent and aroma
[10:54] raaachem: true story
[10:54] Bern: american english SUCKS!
[10:54] Bern: lol
[10:54] Anna: how about stank odor?
[10:54] Queenie: yah it does!
[10:55] Anna: Stank odor repeating myself?
[10:55] Queenie: i dont get how some words are the same. minute as in time and minute as in small. makes no sense!!!
[10:55] Bern: lol
[10:55] Bern: right!
[10:56] Queenie: and u pronounce them differently. WTF??!!? ITS THE SAME!!! lol

[10:56] raaachem: and no
[10:56] raaachem: stank odor is NOT repeating urself
[10:56] raaachem: well
[10:56] raaachem: technically
[10:56] Queenie: oh and produce as in to produce and produce as in fruit and veggies
[10:56] raaachem: stank is the adjective to odor’s noun
[10:56] Bern: hahaha
[10:57] Anna: slamit!
[10:57] Queenie: if thats the case then why is body odor = bad odor?
[10:57] Bern: i technically see it as repeating bc when something is “stank” or “smelly” you automatically think odor
