Orac BS: Improper letter S endings! Arghhh! (110* d) RE: BS: Improper letter S endings! Arghhh! 08 Oct 01


Another one that gets to me is the way "alleged" is getting pronounced these days. If it is used as an adjective "an alleged crime" it should be "alleg-ed" ... in "It was alleged" it is a verb and is a different pronunciation.
There are many similar words eg, aged (it was aged but an ag-ed person), (It was learned but a learn-ed person) So the rule is quite simple... so why can't even the bods on the BBC get it right these days.
