Init.... ffs

During my first trip to England I heard “innit” used in unexpected places in a sentence and I was totally confused.

When you go to  the pub for roast beef, roast spuds, yorkshires and all the veg what is it called?

Sunday Lunch at Craig Y Nos Castle - Craig Y Nos Castle (Weddings,  Accommodation and Ghost Tours) in Wales

Excuse me Mr Waiter bloke, where's the gravy?

And who ever heard of a Sunday dinner without mint sauce.

If my Mam was still about, she'd be wanting a word.

Cholmondeley. Chumly

Slaithwaite. Slawit.

Twickenham. Unspeakable.

👍😀

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

Thought that the 'ickenham' in this case was prounounced 'att' like that place in Orkney. 😂

Serious news/current affairs bulletins/programmes being referred to as 'shows'.

Last week, a flak-jacketed, helmeted Clive Myrie, reporting from war-torn 'Keev', said: "And more of that later in the show." Whaaaaat?

Almost all the guff uttered by TV weather forecasters:

'more especially'

'the overnight period'

'the sun will rise in the morning'

'wind chill factor'

'temperature values'

'rainfall'

Alluded to really annoys me now and I almost exclusively hear it used by RL pundits. Brian Noble was the first some years ago and now it seems an unwritten rule that every pundit must have alluded to something.

As a Mancunian  born and bred,  I'd say "Yous"was more of an Americanism.
