Whys

Taught by Nathan Keedy | Permalink | Tagged as reasons, whys, | Comments »

"Whys" is used to mean "reasons," but unnecessarily transforms an adverb into a noun, when we already have a perfectly good noun that means exactly the same thing.

As in...
"I've brought you together today to explain the whys behind our recent merger decision."

Actually, this definition sucks. Let me add my own. You can also share "whys" with a friend or share it on Twitter.

Make sense? Let's discuss.
