\Ate the rate aaf\
Abbreviation. September 12, 2014, Word of the Day
Amazing as it may seem, you can hear folks announce their e-mail as ignoramus "at the rate of" gmail.com (firstname.lastname@example.org for those who have not got it yet). You scratch your head and squint hard every time you hear a desi use 'at the rate of' for the @ sign in an email address. The lessons from 6th class simble indresd problems have been so ingrained in the skull (remember (p.n.r/100), where r is interest 'at the rate of....@' that the definition sticks lifelong. Admittedly the usage has come down, but every so often a desi bhai or behan will surprise with at the rate of yahoo.com.
