THE DEBATE:

Liesl sings "Timid and shy and scared am I of things beyond my __"

Is __ "Ken" or "Kin?"

We had a family debate about it and I can't remember what side I'm on.

Anyway, debate on! Head to the comment box!

I've always thought of it as "ken." Since it means knowledge, it fits.

aLeXa said...

Two things: 1) Ken makes most sense to me.

2) I think Liesl is lying. She looks at leeeaaast twenty. What do you think?

Merriette said...

I've always thought it was "ken" because that means knowledge so it makes sense.

I really like your last post.

Brenna said...

We have this ginourmous dictionary, and "ken" is actually in it.

"Ken; (n) cognizance, The range of what one can know or understand; alternately, sight, the range of vision."

While "kin" means... well, relatives.

Ken wins.

Keilah said...

Huh! Interesting, Brenna!

I always though it was "care", but I guess that's what happens to movies that you watch all your life.
Has this ever happened to you? You grow up watching a movie, and only when you get older do you realize that you have gotten the whole story line off (or in this case, a word)?

Milli said...

Um...I've always thought it was ken. So...who won the debate?

Marian said...

I think it's "ken". "Kin" works, too, but knowledge might be slightly more relevant. You know, this makes me want to go look it up on Google... :D

Qwip said...

Who thought it was 'kin'?

Autumn said...

I am pretty much certain it is "Ken." I own "The Sound of Music" on Dvd and have watched it with subtitles and it is "Ken."

Ken, tis Scottish.

Danielle Elizabeth said...

It's "ken". :)
At least it was in the version of "The Sound of Music" that I was in.

Una said...

Aren't you gonna post soon, Gray?

Guinevere Amoureaux said...

I think 'ken' fits much better.

Tarissa said...

Well... "ken" being a Scottish word meaning "knowledge" and then "kin" meaning "family/relatives"....

I suppose each word could fit in it's own way! But I like "ken" better.

That's my two cents.

Katherine Sophia said...

Reading thru these comments is kind of funny... I could just say ditto, but I won't.
The word is *ken*.
I like you new header.

debater at heart said...

ken! And aLeXa, nice age-judging -- the actress was 21 when they made the movie.

Danzibar said...

not to be a damper, but I always thought it was "kin," which is totally relavent because we're talking about her first relationship with a man outside of her family. But it was also a coy line in a way since it's obvious that she isn't scared at all, she's excited. The scottish bit makes sense, but isn't very common outside of Scottish literature, therefore also unlikely in this context. But it would be awesome if it was "ken." By the way...this is my favorite movie for anyone who cares...

Danzibar said...

yep...looked up the lyrics it is most certainly 'ken'...which makes me happy...I rarely see that word! :)
