That's the truth. 1/2 my heritage is English and I lived in England on two occasions for 2 1/2 years in total but I have great difficulty in understanding the majority of "English" as spoken by them these days. It's gotten so bad that it has even begun to infest the BBC, once the standard of properly spoken English (the Queen aside).One Grain At A Time, brothers.If he's "cooking a rice" as in singular,
Nah... "cooking a rice" merely shows that he learned English from the British where using words and phrases incorrectly and omitting much altogether has become so common they have taken to calling it "proper English."
The imperialists have grown so lazy that they can no longer form complete thoughts or sentences. "I am cooking a curry-based entrée" has morphed into "I'm cooking a curry..." as if the effort keep those last three syllables was altogether too much.
As to the ubiquitous curry - "Av a bi' u bu'ah wiv i' " (Have a bit of butter with it)
English as she is goodly spoke indeed. Lazy, sloppy and ignorant - I doubt the majority of that country even know what the word elocution means. Thank God that Joanna Lumley still speaks properly so we have a standard to judge by.
