Subject: RE: BS: 'Queen no longer speaks Queen's English'
Morty, what is wrong with "from Moira and me,goodnight." Did we attend different grammar classes?
I am horrified at the way our language is degenerating. I have no problems with accents or dialects but loathe what I call lazy speech which seems to miss as many letters as is possible without making it totally incomprehensible(but only just) also using things like "soz" instead or sorry which my children do . In my opinion if they can't take the trouble to say it properly they don't mean it!!!!
ouch! Sorry, just fell off my soapbox!!
