Leaves me confused.
Must have a case of the Vicky Pollards!
No, no, no, no..yes.
I intensely dislike the modern trend of starting sentences with "So,...". It seem particularly prevalent when people are interviewed on the TV or Radio.
Agree 120 percent.... another thing I dislike.
"So, yeh no, i'm behind the boss 136 percent."
Yes I agree. My particular dislike is when some people insert a ‘h’ when pronouncing st’s hence striker becomes shtriker. There used to be one on radio Sheffield and a couple of the sports commentators on breakfast telly
Or the ones who fill every gap with "errr "
Political correctness, I’m afraid, all Politicians, even the Council receivecommunication training where they are taught to start with so, because it stops them starting a reply with a no.
Jonathon Buchan. I shudder when I listen to him, it's so bad !
The commentator on i follow does it with Stendel but I think it’s just his attempt at a German accent!
That’s the correct way to pronounce Stendel.
What you got against the entire Scouse population
English is a dynamic language and is constantly changing.
I put it down to watching too much of the Vicar of Dibley as kids
But not for the better.
Half the people on the telly can't even pronounce the word "sixth" correctly, e.g. "Scunthorpe could only manage a draw and remain in sick place in the table". It's SIXTH for God's sake. SIXTH!
My wife answers all questions with "Nein" when she means "Ja". And vice versa.
Are you sure or is that just what you pretend to get your own way?
I'm afraid I'm unfamiliar with this concept! I bet Will is too...........
The modern use of the word "literally" by anyone under 30 it seems, thrown into practically every sentence.
It seems to be used just to underline or add emphasis to what the speaker is saying.
100% of the people who follow this trend are up-speakers, another reason for me to hate them.
I listened to the Paul Conway/Chien Lee interview.... if he wasn't a billionaire and owned our club I'd politely tell Mr Lee not to keep saying "you know" in every breath. Suppose being Chinese does give him an excuse, his English is somewhat better than my non-existent Chinese.
But while we are top of the league he can say what he wants !
