The English Languaggy

Kick back and talk about anything you like in here. NOT THAT! :) no really, I make it a point never to censor or delete anything.

Waiter! I’ll have a tall half-skinny half-1 percent extra hot split quad shot (two shots decaf, two shots regular) latte with whip please!

The English Languaggy

Post by Ian Pedlar » Tue Dec 19, 2017 8:18 pm

I do like our American cousins but I wish they would stop 'going ahead'.

I'm gonna go ahead and do this then when I'm done with that I'll go ahead and do that.

Ad nausiam.

To the point where they are 'going ahead' several times in each sentence.

Reminds me of people who have the psychopathological need to say 'know what I mean'
every six seconds.

We don't mind you bastardising our language, we love it! (mostly)

But please stop going ahead.

I'll have more of a moan while I'm at it.

Who on earth would say 'Nuculus' ?

It's 'Nuclear' !

The Atom has a 'Nucleus' so does a cell.

I have seen improvement on this as people realise how stupid it is to say 'a nucular bomb' coz it just makes them look stupid.

And who the hell told you to say 'I'm gonna axe him a question' to the point where you simply can not pronounce the word 'ask' ?
Is it difficult? Did they not have those word formation pictures for you?
Wrong coloured crayons perhaps?
