ARBOUR RHYMES WITH BARBER

 

Gorgonzola, viola

the word is Pergola

it rhymes with Angola!

So why did I hear her

distinctly say pergerler

murderer nurturer

pergola, pergerler.

    There was a comment on the radio yesterday as to why some people pronounce new as noo.

      Bads pronunciation is only second yo bad grammar. And I'm not talking regional accents here.

      • Goldfinch60

        Regional accents are wonderful, I love the Northumbrian and West Scotland accents.

        A previous Vicar said 'On no, it's not Chewsday, it's Toosday' (for Tuesday').
        Some folk take a mid-word break, saying 'Thirt-teen' or 'Fort-teen', with emphasis on the middle 't'.
        Will Miss Berles allow these things?

        • Michael Edwards

          Miss Berles gets very cot under the holler about these things.

          Another one which really gets me going is pronouncing garage as garidge - the introduction of the 'd' is subtle but grrrr

          I could be here as critic,
          something parasitic
          but last night was paralytic
          and now my wrists arthritic
          have slowed my brain syphilitic needing a charge electrolytic
          or is that too psychoanalytic?
          (hic!)

          Have you noticed that in the south of the country, over the last couple of decades, the simple word 'no' has become extended but a taint of Australian accent and now become 'no-ooo'. It used to be a monosyllable but with the addition of 'ooo' it has grown another syllable. ...... or is it just me?

            Ye-ees

            • L. B. Mek

              better yet: 'Nah' (cos you know, how else to shorten a word than em, add a letter to it...) lol

            • Fay Slimm.

              I wholly agree with the irks you feel Michael on bad pronunciation - - -there are many versions of numerous words that seem to appear different each week on the radio etc....... hey -ho that is today's code for saying it their way eh ?

              • Michael Edwards

                Thanks Fay. It's bad grammar that really gets me going though.
                Manchester United are looking for a new striker - no 'is looking' - there is only one MU
                I was sat next to her. Who sat you there? Do you mean 'I was siiting' ?
                i were really upset - and - we was really upset. Grrr
                And so it goes on - and on - and on.

                Bad grammar tis the only thing I know, along with bad spellin, but that be life, innit.like.
                Nice toosum today, perhaps your nickname should be Eddie The Easel. Lol

                fun read,
                found your pic a bit psychedelic even if only black n white
