Ironic? I'm glad you asked Ajay. Methinks is a fake word and simmers dislike things that are fake, yet we freely intersperse this word in our postings
how can it be fake? poor English maybe but not fake
Archaic Verb. A surviving old-English dative construction of "it seems to me" where "me" is the indirect object. Sadly, abused by people who make special trips to Pinkberry.
Another way to say 'i think'. First seen in culture in William Shakespeare's play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', used by the servant Puck (you're impressed). But the worlds nerd subculture became enthralled with the term, when the term was used by Jar-Jar Binks in Star Wars I: Phantom Menace, hallowed be thy name, and is used by NORMAL PEOPLE in conversation. Sometimes used at the end of a sentence, to add an opinion (example 2).Example 1
: Methinks I'm bored.Example 2
: That's a nice arse methinks.
