"Talking nonsense is the sole privilege mankind possesses over the other organisms."
Whence came the expression hailing from (as in "originally hailing from Australia and now living in Los Angeles")?
Because we never say snowing from or sleeting from or raining from.
Well, reigning from, maybe.
The example above had nothing to do with the previous post. Rather, I was Googling in response to the next post.
I think they mean hail as in a greeting issued to/by someone arriving from another place. "Hail, and well met, good fellow" and that sort of thing.That's my guess anyway.
Sounds good. Sounds like TC agrees with you, too.
