Touched a nerve have we SO?

Not all, Bozo - just you nearly made me throw up a very early breakfast yesterday morning with your ill-informed noxious class bigotry.

Pronounciation

Nice one, Bozo. It would seem that even you are prone to moments of genuinely touching pragmatism. I had a tear in my eye when I read that, though no doubt you'll be getting a thorough thrashing off your laugh-a-minute syncophantic sick-kick for that one!*

*Although unashamedly an ill-educated working-class lout myself, I know that the exclamation point derives from shorthand for the Latin Io - a word which is particularly apt in this most festive of seasons. Ordinary frowned upon, I will be making a particular point of using as many of these as seems reasonable in my Mudcat posts between now and Epiphany. But two will suffice for now. Io to you all!

I certainly do, finger slipped on keyboard!

"I take it you mean 'pronUnciation'? ··· though why it should be so is admittedly one of those mysteries..."

I have the teensiest, sneakiest of feelings, that Bonzo might be telling porky pies about 'slipped fingers' there!
I've heard people speak it that way too - no doubt as an unthinking extension of pronOUnce.
Come clean Bonzo, you say 'pronOUnciation' the common oik way too, doncha? ;->

Damn right he is! Bozo the Pedant messed up big time & was hoisted by his own rancid petard, thus endearing him to we pragmatists the world o'er, though I doubt he'll be getting much off Gervase under the mistletoe this year.

I dunno, Sweeney. In their florid pedantry, excessive ornamentation and studied flamboyance, your posts reveal a lot of the shame that often afflicts the auto-didact. Unless, of course, English isn't your mother tongue; in which case, well done!

I wonder what that unnecessary hyphen reveals about you, Gervase?

"your posts reveal a lot of the shame that often afflicts the auto-didact."

I rather enjoy SO'P's colourful style myself, not that it's always easy to penetrate mind you! I read it rather more the opposite, as expressing a shameless pleasure in expression through language. It describes a kind of theatricality of communication, which is perhaps unsurprising seeing as the man is a Storyteller by trade.
Plus I loathe the meanness of 'plain English' petty tyrants. Not that I'm accusing anyone here of such Scroogery, it's just the ethos of the campaign reminds me of Orwell too much - and I personally appreciate individualism and flamboyance in others.

Jolly good, and do you think babies should face the mother or as they say in Croydon - "muvaaaaaaar" or should they face away in their prams?

The odd thing is, Bozo, I'm defending people who would tear you limb from limb if they were aware of but half of the savage crap you've written about them from the safety of your computer screen. I suggest you go and confront them with your petty linguistic grievances - you that's so tough.

So Tough - that's one of my favourite albums of all time, out now in a Special Edition I'm hoping to find in my stocking on the morning of the 25th. Altogether now: A cigarette, cup of tea, a bun...

Of course not, you clot! It's an old compositor's convention - whenever the word "Jesus Christ albloodymighty" occurs in a manuscript, the comp simply crosses himself and substitutes the word "Gervase".
Honestly. Didn't Google teach you anything?

Thanks for the entertainment.
I do like to hear clearly and correctly spoken language. Phrasing matters too. My Mother told me of her 'hotline' conversation with the BBC when she heard a radio announcer say "The Police are looking for a black cab driver". Mother wanted to be sure whether it was the driver of a 'black cab' or a black 'cab driver'... She was back on the telephone when there was 'a lecture by a teacher on drugs' Needless to say the next news bulletins were delivered to her satisfaction.

Pronunciation is so important. I corrected my nephew's delivery of my son's name from Faowip to Philip. I wonder how my nephew might have written it down?
Spelling matters too. My new insurance form arrived to Mrs Rickthing, adding two new consonants and omitting another one!
Am I bovverred?
Yes, you guessed it, I am!

Ah, I see - in other words another slip of the finger in the fine Bozo tradition. You guys crack me up.

This thread is Bonzo's turd, Gervase - not mine. He has messed in his own yard and I only return to sweeten the stench with a light dusting of Vernacular Linguistic & Folkloric Pragmatism - which I honestly thought would be a concern to everyone on a forum like Mudcat. Ain't it odd how pedantry and folk music make such happy bedfellows?
