GUEST,Steamin' Willie BS: Sloppy Pronunciation (106* d) RE: BS: Sloppy Pronunciation 10 Jul 11

I suppose my pedant side gets most frustrated with the use of American pronunciations, not because I don't like them but because the British pronunciation isn't difficult and hasn't reached the end of the shelf life yet.

As a bit of a disk jockey in the '70s I first introduced ZZ Top as Zed Zed Top and to be fair, I only started using Zee Zee Top when I heard John Peel use it.

But what makes me get all agitated is people, especially younger women who go up at the end of sentences. Regardless of what they are saying or how they pronounce it.

Must be turning into an old fart. Live and let live normally but those two above won't get you a job if I'm interviewing.

Irish film industry? What did you work on, Schindlers Pissed?

I take it you weren't the director or producer. I can't see you being the fluff either.....
