Title: Expressions that have infected from Lij to you
Post by: Lorienel on November 15, 2006, 08:28:01 am

As fans spend a lot of time checking out what new their idol has done, it may happen that some of his expressions may infect his fans. ;D

So I was wondering if some of Lij's manners have infected you. At least I love these days the word awesome. :D But tell me about yours.

Interesting question. I've devolped a laugh a bit like Elijah's...although on me it just sounds like some insane girl having a fit ::)

I have never noticed how much Lij says awesome, but I say awesome a lot too. I also like music a lot so I think that applies to this. ;D
BTW don't feel bad Vic I have that same funny laugh at times! ::)

[color=Green]he also says "that's terrible" or "fantastic" a lot.
i don't think i use the words because of him. actually i don't use terrible. fantastic i tend to write more, but i don't say it.[/color]

[color=Blue]Mmm... I don´t think so, specially considering that English is not my first language...
But he has opened my mind to other kind of music, so different from what I usually listen to, if that counts...[/color]

There are probably a couple of things that I say more often due to Elijah's influence. One that I know is directly related to him is my usage of the word "indeed". That's become a regular part of my vocabulary now. Also, I tend to use "passionate" to express things for which other folks might use "obsessed", lol. I have heard him use both words, but I honestly don't think I use passionate because he does; rather I use it because I think there is a distinct difference between being intense involved in or drawn to something (or someone) in a healthy way and truly being obsessed, which is never healthy. I began using "passionate" to explain to other folks why I was so involved in the LOTR fandom, and why I had seen the films so many times, so my increased exposure to Elijah certainly influenced my use of the word.

Post by: nettie on November 15, 2006, 09:54:34 pm

[color=Green]Lith, when i read your post, i realized that yes, he does use the word "passionate" a lot. i never really zoomed in on that one word. but since you mentioned it, yes, you are so right.
so now, everytime he uses it, i will think of you, :D[/color]

Title: Re:Expressions that have infected from Lij to you
Post by: Blue Star on November 15, 2006, 10:09:27 pm

I've noticed that, especially in the LOTR commentaries, he uses "initially" "essentially" and "ultimately" a LOT. Plus he mis-procounces things like "Hollowin" instead of "Halloween", and "Libary" instead of "Library". Not that that's influences me any. :P Just thought I'd point that out. ;)


What I do realize, though, because of him, is that I must be vain and narcissistic because I do look a lot like him, in the eyes especially. The similarities seem to be greater every day. In fact just the other day I looked in the mirror and made that expression he made behind the bars and it was just....spooky.

Title: Re:Expressions that have infected from Lij to you

Post by: mariav on November 16, 2006, 05:40:54 am

Not so much his expressions influence me - the way he speaks is his own sweet way, I don't tend to imitate him in this. But I really look up to his so many qualities - he is totally my hero and my inspiration to becoming a better person. I admire the way he treats people, his tolerance, his decisiveness, his... Well, I could go on for long :P. So this is his qualities that I would like to inherit, too. :)

Title: Re:Expressions that have infected from Lij to you
Post by: Sipa on November 16, 2006, 10:21:00 am

I don't speak english as my native language... so I don't have any expressions from Lij. I probably would though if I spoke english everyday... ::)

There’s a little clip in The Return of the King Appendices, From Book to Film, in the section on Mount Doom where Peter Jackson is showing Elijah how the fight with Gollum to get the ring back should have a ‘push-me-pull-you’ sort of feel, and Elijah is nodding and saying: “Yeah, yep...” Well, when my boss asks me to do something at work, I find myself agreeing with exactly the same nod and intonation as Elijah. But I’m not sure which came first – me responding like that and then recognising the same intonation in Elijah, or the other way round....if that makes sense! But hey, anything that reminds me of Elijah when I'm at work always lightens my day and cheers me up! ;D

Lith – In which Happy Feet interview did George Miller make the quote about Elijah that’s in your sig? Do you have a link to it, please?

OK, i didn't really want to admit that Elijah had rubbed off on me from all the way over here, only having met him once for a total of two mintues, but here goes:

I was writing an essay last night and I noticed that I'm typing "as well" a lot. I can hear him using it a lot instead of "too". I think I started it myself, especially in essay writing to fill out space, but, honestly, I think it's a coincidence just because he has a very good vacabulary and speech pattern and I try not to sound like the airheads I have to go to school with. But I could be wrong and just not realize it...

Title: Re:Expressions that have infected from Lij to you
Post by: Lorienel on November 16, 2006, 01:32:31 pm

I think that awesome thing actually came from two guys. One of our guys in the family says awesome a lot, in our language. But I remember Elijah saying awesome at least once, but he said it in such great way that it got stuck somehow in my head. So could be influence of these two guys, and so I write that word often in english in forums. ;D

I've noticed that Elijah says "as well" a lot. I usually say "too" or "also", but lately I find myself saying "as well". Especially after watching videos of him on talk shows.

He says "amazing" a lot to describe things. Now when I use that word I feel weird, like I need to think of my own describing word. ;D

Thanks, Lith. :) The link took me to the home page and I found the article in their 'movie' section.

I love this quote from Elijah: "The great message for kids in this movie is that the things that separate us from each other are also the things that make us who we are. That's something that should be celebrated." - it's just sooo Aquarian! :)

Sorry, getting off topic :P

Well put Hobbit Girl. That's how I feel too.

As for his expressions... I heard myself the other day saying "ultimately" three times in one sentence. That, I believe, is something only Elijah would do, so I will blame him for this one. ;D

Post by: scroll on December 19, 2006, 08:05:33 pm

I have never really taken anything from Lij :-*. SO I don't know if this goes along with the topic or not. But here it goes anyway.

After seeing FOTR just a few years ago I fell in love with Lij :-*. I never really knew whom he was until then. But any how, I was going down the road one day and thought to myself, "if JK Rowlings did HP and never wrote before and about the same age as I was I could write a book too". I have always wanted to write a book but never knew how to get all the ideas I had in my head on the paper.

(Back to Lij :-* now). Well anyway I have been writing my book for the last few years and have it done (just making a few changes). Now that I know what kind of person my hero is I think Lij :-* is the only one that can do the part justice. If for some reason my book hits it big and is made into a movie later.

So that is what kind of influence that Lij :-* had on me with his cuteness(sp) and acting abilities.

Usually I tend to say "totally" when i need an 'intensifier,' if you know what i mean, but sometimes i'll try to intentionally say 'definitely' instead, because lij says it. ;D I kind of like using some of his same expressions, tho i don't want to lose my own either. So i guess i'll use both. :D lol... I use the "as well" a lot, too, tho i'm not sure that's because of him. Someone (can't remember who) said they feel weird saying 'awesome', like they need to find their own describing word--i know what you mean. ;) As to expressions, I like to do that "sideways look" he does, like when he's skeptical about something, lol and one thing i guess i have in common with Frodo is that i tend to laugh when i'm happy as well. (<==Another 'as well'...they're taking over the world! Or at least this forum's community lol) Also, if we're talking about appearances, someone once gave me a very nice compliment about my eyes (that they were the most spectacular she'd ever seen, as i remember *blushes*), and i was like :o , because i'd only heard people say that (or things like it) about one other person before, and he is on the header banner of this page! And she said it about me! It was so nice, like i said. :) But enough about that. ;) Time to end this post...

He does tend to laugh kind of funny sometimes, but the way I see it, it's just one of the things that make him unique and Vix same goes to you. It's not like a curse or anything it just makes you different and there is nothing wrong with that, I'm different because I like being that way. It's funny, but one day I heard a friend of mine from Myspace say something that I say a lot which is: "Why be normal, when being different is so much funnier and more interesting." So just remember that if someone ever tells you to change, you should never agree to it unless you're absolutely positive that you're willing to let go of who you are. We should be proud of who we are, even though my heart has been shattered with what I deal with at home, I still find it within myself to realize that I rule my own life and that I need to carry on with it.

Hmmm... not sure if I am like Elijah yet... (other than the fact that I talk about him all the time lol). Funny thing though, I have always loved the Mini Cooper, everytime I'd see one drive by I'd say "Look! There's my car!" and all my friends would say it too.
Just found out last week Elijah Wood OWNS a Mini Coop, and I almost died. lol

I noticed he likes to use the word "initially", I've seen him in a few interviews and he's said it a few times. Started saying it myself lol.

Dunno if that counts, really - I'm more familiar with Elijah *in* his movies than with Elijah in interviews and the like...
But:
I can't type/say the word "molecules" (*snort*) without wanting to laugh out loud. (Ice Storm influence)
And when I'm hyper, I start shouting "Tweak!" which comes from Faculty XD
There are some other instances I can't remember right now...I think I started using the word "ultimately" a lot because I love how Elijah says that word...

Post by: Lanta the Gemstar on March 13, 2008, 08:14:49 pm

I too have noticed how *extremely* often Elijah uses certain words or expressions. For example he says 'they're amazing!' or 'that's amazing!' when complimenting something he likes, also 'that's terrible', 'initially', 'ultimately' and 'fantastic'.

Sometimes he uses these terms repeatedly in the same sentence! LOL

I've also noticed how he says 'yes' rather than the more common 'yeah' that most people would expect a young guy like him to use. And his famous 'as well' instead of 'too'...

I say 'fantastic' a lot myself but I don't think it comes from being inflenced by Elijah.

However, like Mr Wood, I probably use the f-word a bit more often in polite conversation than I really should!!! :-[

i´m not native english but i can understand mostly write english... it´s difficult to pick just one first : he talks a lot!... (try to look for the press conference he gave in Chile, and you´ll know why i say that... in emol.com ... i think... ) two: is difficult to heard and understand english but i think i´ll go with the word "actually" is wich i can remember and recognize from aaaall the words he says, always appears in some interview.-

You are right Lady Yuna, he *does* say 'actually' an awful lot.

In my previous post, I should also have mentioned that I quote from Lord of the Rings in everyday conversation with people. I know, I'm obsessed ;) !!!

If he swears a lot, I do too..

I too have noticed how *extremely* often Elijah uses certain words or expressions. For example he says 'they're amazing!' or 'that's amazing!' when complimenting something he likes, also 'that's terrible', 'initially', 'ultimately' and 'fantastic'.

Sometimes he uses these terms repeatedly in the same sentence! LOL

I've also noticed how he says 'yes' rather than the more common 'yeah' that most people would expect a young guy like him to use. And his famous 'as well' instead of 'too'...

I say 'fantastic' a lot myself but I don't think it comes from being inflenced by Elijah.

Wow that's amiazing ;D I use as well..as well all the time! ;)
No, but seriously I do the "as well" thing alot, I didn't reaize it but it probably did come from him.


Also speaking of the F-bomb. Did you see the part of the LOTR extended version where he's dressed like a hobbit and dropping the F-bomb a bunch. It's bleeped out but it's so funny to see a cute little hobbit cussing up a storm. ;D Ha! Still funny :)

I notice him using the word "fantastic" a lot too.

Well, I think I've sort of picked up on his laugh. Only sometimes, but especially when I think about it. Also, I never really liked my smile. I think I have started to smile like him a bit too, but probably only whilst laughing... like him.

I'm not sure if these count...

I started acting [partially] because of him [he inspired me to].

There was also this one quote from him that encouraged me to smile more.

I also wear glasses some of the time. I used to play piano. One of my fave books is The Hobbit. The Beatles are among my fave music. Quite a few things we have in common. (Just realised they are not expressions) :P

It seems he and I have things in common. Yay. :D *happy Allie!*

I love saying, "Amazing". I don't know why, it's a cool word. Maybe whenever I meet Elijah, we'll strike up a conversation of "amazing"...ness.

AND I LOVE HOW HE PRONOUNCES HIS L'S. *turns-off caps-lock* Dear Lord I cannot wait until he pronounces my name. XD (Sorry... had a Mountain Dew and Tootsie-Roll earlier..)

Well, I've started to say the word "brilliant" quite a bit, which I never did before, and I think other ways I phrase things have become a bit like him. lol. :)

And this is silly, but once or twice I have looked in the mirror and purposely tried to make my eyes bigger. lol It didn't work.

I've always said the word 'awesome', but I've started to use the word 'fantastic' and 'initially' a lot recently (probably because I've been watching lots of videos, and listening to interviews and stuff.)

There was one time (on the Graham Norton Show), when he said 'That's bizarre'. I loved the way he said it, and now I'm going to steal it off him. I just have incorporate that into a conversation. Somehow.

Also, on Graham Norton, there was a fantastic facial expression of his. After the whole thing about Ralph Fienne with the stewardess on the plane (it makes sense if you've seen it), and Graham started talking to Elijah, about whether he'd ever had any experiences with people wanting to say 'I got with Frodo!'. Graham said something along the lines of 'So, Elijah...' and Elijah pulled this amazing face. I love it. I have now started using it. XD

For those of you who have no idea what the last paragraph was about, watch the episode. It's awesome.

Ah dear. I used awesome. :P

I don't know if I've picked up on it or not, since people noticed my unique laugh long before I was obsessed with Elijah Wood, but our laughs are very similar. It's just something that I've recently noticed. The only way I can make my eyes appear wider is if I raise my eyebrows, which I've gotten into the habit of doing quite a bit (no idea why).
