    Steve, hate people parking ON the pavement, someone a couple of streets away from me does that.  I often have to walk in the road as the whole car in on the pavement. God help anyone in a wheelchair or with a pushchair!

    Lot's of laziness and poor vocabulary in English language comes from the Americanisms creeping in to every day usage.    I often have to correct Possum who has grown up bilingual and without grammar instruction in English.

    In general, the French speakers are better but I have noticed of late that younger people - under 30s - being interviewed on radio or TV start the answer with a "Donc".  Must be watching dubbed US TV!

    Steve - add "gobsmacked" for amazed or astounded.   Such an ugly word.   BBC presenters using the plural verb with singular nouns such as government.   They should know better.

    Can I add .... people who say 'spec' like 'speck' rather than with a soft 'c' because it's short for 'specification'  image
