    Aren’t euphemisms tuned to Bb like Trumpets? Never understood how anyone can march and play one of those things at the same time.

    You need some mainland if you want to be taken seriously in the world.

    That’s one heck of a wax ball she’s pulled out of her ear.

    And nowhere is it Yorkshire. How many people talk of the black stuff used to surface roads as ‘ashfelt’? It’s spelt ‘asphalt‘.

    Of course. Too many "exceptions" to list of course.

    You know...when you guys stole your language from the Germanic/Saxon and romance languages, you could have made things a bit more intuitive. :D

    It probably would have been better if the Normans hadn't invaded.
    Nope, you say sodder which might actually sound worse on your side of the Atlantic.

    For no apparent reason my wife has begun to say ‘this morning’ as ‘a s’morning’. Driving me nuts, but not worth the upset of criticizing.

    I live in the south, and the way the southern girls talk is the same as the way the southern boys talk. And there are many accents/dialogs in the region, ranging all the way from a non regional (no accent) dialog to backwoods trailer park hick.

    The latter is cringe worthy, and annoying at best.

    Ha! Yes, I acknowledged my spelling error earlier in the thread.

    No need for further explanation of the odd pronunciation needed. I'm from NYC originally so we're familiar with liberal pronunciation license. Yanowadimsayin?

    I have lived in Birmingham for over 20 years and have never heard anyone say Boimingham. I hear Birmin'ham all the time. And Hunstsville as Huntsvul. Mobile is pronounced Mobeel.

    That's impossible. It would defy the laws of physics if she thought I was right. It would create a super massive black hole that would destroy the universe.:D
