I agree with equaliser :)


Is that because you can't form your own opinion? What do they teach children in primary school these days ?

Now where did I leave that pointy thing that bloke Damocles gave me, I've work to do!

No, why?


You mentioned Bradford's demise. In other words, death . Did you not mean to write that, or were you ignorant of the meaning of the word?

If you consult any decent dictionary or thesaurus, you'll find that I was quite within my rights to use the word 'demise' as it's a synonym for 'failure' - which describes Bradford's ongoing situation to a tee. I can also point you in the way of thousands of published articles and stories which use the word 'demise' in reference to people, institutions and organisations that are very much still in existence yet suffering troubled times. If you want to restrict your interpretation of words to a legal context only, then fair enough.

It's already started as a result of poor recruitment for the season ahead.

Here's a few for starters - all using the word 'demise' to describe the decline in fortunes of organisations and individuals whom are still very much in existence ;

http://www.dailymail...st-sparkle.html

http://www.businesss...d-nokias-demise

If you would like me to post a few more to support my point, just ask.

In reference to your other request - which was to provide 'the meaning' of 'ongoing', please see the link below. However, I've got to say I'm a little surprised that an obvious wordsmith like yourself doesn't aleady know what the word in question means? Of course, there is the possiblity that you do know what it means, and that you're simply trying to make another pedantic point?

So you'd like me to post thousands of links on here, when all I really need to support my use of the word 'demise' are a few examples from some recognisable sources?

You said 'I can also point you in the way of thousands of published articles and stories' bit of an exaggeration don't you think!

 

Exaggeration = is a representation of something in an excessive manner.

If you're another who wishes to be pedantic, I can 'point you in the way of thousands of published articles and stories' supporting my use of the word 'demise' simply by recommending that you do a quick Google search.

It can mean either written or verbal communication, but you knew that, of course.

Your fortunate run over the Rams has to come to an end... As all things do

Yes I used the word fortunate
Because in reality it is
you've had a good run Batley and as a "little team" please accept with Grace when your fortunes turn and this incredibly luck streak your on comes to a timely end


The buffers are coming up quickly in the station for the Batley bulldogs unfashionable undesirable uninteresting express ;)


Your next destination



Oblivion ;)
