Earlier today I asked a question on Stack Exchange Economics asking about the benefits of a certain scheme.
A user replied as follows
Instead of the word "benefit" I prefer to use the old Saxon word "bebebebebebebebebebenefit". Some people say using the shorter word has bebebebebebebebebebenefits, but I don't see any.
These are not English words and I am aware of that. What does the speaker imply by saying
I prefer to use the old Saxon word extended-word ?
I tried to read what those words could mean:
- Saxon, according to Wikipedia
Anglo-Saxon is the earliest historical form of the English language, spoken in England and southern and eastern Scotland in the early Middle Ages
- Assuming it is an informal expression, I tried finding any phrases like
I prefer to use the old Saxon wordbut couldn't find any.
