    It looks like someone was trying to say a word and then got confused and said the beginning of a lot of other words and then went ‘Quaver’

    Sort of like when my Nana forgets who she’s talking to and goes through all the names – ‘MaDavMicHelKatRebecca’

    Also…you totally just picked this because it has ‘demi’ in it.

    I love that the words hemi, demi and semi are all used to mean “half”! That’s such an efficient use of language…
