Subject: RE: Help: What does 'asthore' mean?
Well I think you are being a bit pedantic, Roger, and fighting a bit of a losing battle preserving the O/Oh distinction. It's useful, ofcourse, knowing whether someone is saying "Oh shit" which is slightly offensive and "O shit" which could be very offensive (if you are standing in front of the speaker), but I think modern usage has become pretty much randomised.
