What is the meaning of stick no bills?
Is this correct English?
Is it not a way of telling, stick something else instead.
Is it not sticking is- ‘thrusting‘ something rather than ‘pasting’?
Should it not be something like-Don’t stick any bills?
Sometimes I find it ODD because one can get the meaning either way.
Maybe it’s Indian English! I am not sure. Maybe something similar to ‘No smoking’
In India, it’s a common occurrence to deface walls during election season and many private walls owners, readily paint ‘Stick no bill’
Strangely bills are stuck very next to the ‘Stick no bills’ sign
Of course, discussion on the English language is always interesting.
Why do people use the sentence ‘just my two cents’ rather than just my one cent?
I don’t know how far the following quotes is correct regarding English language.
“English grammar is so complex and confusing for the one very simple reason that its rules and terminology are based on Latin, a language with which it has precious little in common.” Bill Bryson
