    Not everyone has access to a decent education and others are dyslexic…… I know lets mock them!

    Pik n mix, dyslexia aside, being taught how to read and write is not being provided with a ‘decent’ education, it’s a ‘basic’ education that everyone receives from about the age of 5 through to 16/17. There surely can’t be that many schools in this country incapable of teaching basic spelling and grammar?

    the most annoying for me is still the whole specific/pacific thing. Its not even a question of spelling or grammar, its just wrong.

    I like to wind Mrs Mary Hinge up by asking her to “learn me how to do that”. Drives her nuts 😆

    A lady on British Airways flight yesterday wanted to “fank” us all for flying with them. No idea what she meant, but I was up for it! 😆

    Surely ‘our’ and ‘are’ are simply pronounced the same in parts of the North?

    And before anyone gets on their high horse about accents making different sounds the same, ask an American to say ‘caught’ and ‘court’ then do the same yourself.

    How about the Borders/Scottish tendancy to cut out whole words?

    eg. ‘My hair needs cut’ etc instead of ‘My hair needs to be cut’ or ‘My hair needs cutting’ 😀

    This thread is a bit of a damp squid really.

    It’s all down to the fact people do not listen to BBC Radio 4. Period.

    It’s had it’s pigs in troughs Jamie…

    I’m not sure as you can directly compare written and spoken. As a northerner, my speech is “economical” with words. If I’m committing something to text / written though, I try not to sound like a retard. (Whether I’m successful or not is left as an exercise for the reader.)

    @Cougar, it’s Northerner, not

    northerner

    . See?

    There, it isn’t that difficult.

    @Cougar, it’s Northerner

    Compass points aren’t capitalised unless they’re part of a place name or specific area. So you’d have North America but north London.

    Even if that were wrong though, I did say I try to get it right, I’m not always successful.

    The phrase that winds me up the most (and it can be heard everywhere) is: “those ones” or “these ones”

    As in: “What about those ones there?” or “Do you want these ones?”

    GAH! WHAT’S WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

    I get really shouty-at-the-telly when I hear newsreaders and presenters saying it 👿

    Do you know I was in a coffee shop the other day and I saw a sign which read “Try the green tea, its good for you”.

    I punched the lady behind the till after buying my mochafrappacrappachino.
