“chuffed doesnt mean what you think it means”
it means exactly what i think it means its just some word that literally has two definitions that mean the opposite thing
This makes me really chuffed.
This post is quite egregious
Well I’m nonplussed by this whole post.
actually, the positive definition for egregious is archaic, meaning it’s an old definition that has come into disuse:
1 outstandingly bad; shocking: egregious abuses of copyright.
2 archaic remarkably good.
(Oxford English Dictionary)
You’ll only see egregious being used as a negative nowadays.
As for nonplussed, in formal standard English has a different meaning than informal use because people were mistaken about its original meaning:
nonplussed |nänˈpləst|(also nonplused )
1 (of a person) surprised and confused so much that they are unsure how to react: he would be completely nonplussed and embarrassed at the idea.
2 informal (of a person) not disconcerted; unperturbed.
usage: In standard use, nonplussed means ‘surprised and confused’: the hostility of the new neighbor’s refusal left Mrs. Walker nonplussed. In North American English, a new use has developed in recent years, meaning ‘unperturbed’—more or less the opposite of its traditional meaning: hoping to disguise his confusion, he tried to appear nonplussed . This new use probably arose on the assumption that non- was the normal negative prefix and must therefore have a negative meaning. It is not considered part of standard English.
