To be honest, as long as people know what you mean does it really matter? Your world is no longer just what's in your back yard, we are subject to influences from all over the world so it's bound to have an impact on the way we speak.

If we stopped using words of foreign origin for example then the English language would be buggered. Buggered, a word I'm trying to popularise in Belgium, not for it's sexual connotation but it's use as an expression of something being broken.

I think just using one word said in two slightly different accents would suffice.

No need to make it any more complicated than it is, especially as Belgium seems to have many Catholic priests who are all to familiar with the alternate meaning of the word.

God's name in vain doesn't mean what you think it means. It means to take in 'Vanity' - i.e. to assume that god is happy something happened to you, or to claim that god is helping you.

When football commentators say "ooh the keeper just about got to that" when he actually saves a shot. He fecking saved it, which means he did get to it FFS!

Also hate the saying "the keeper was beaten" by a shot that goes wide. Why is that even relevant? If a shot hits the corner flag it has beaten the keeper but it's still 30 yards of target!

Terms that make you cringe

People that don't know the difference between the words "Borrow" and "Lend".

The use of the word "like" at the end of every sentence.

As mentioned earlier, the whole .com thing. pished.com, tired.com,....... Rsoles the lot of them!

People that don't know how to spell Teesside - we do not live on the side of the river Tee! (not strictly a term but still winds me up!)

Our Lass!!!!

The list goes on.

'Hate it when people from the UK say 'gotten' also, what's with that ?'

'Gotten' is actually of British origin.

Irregardless.

Which seems to crop up in most of The_Dude_Abides' posts.

The prefix 'ir' means 'not' and the suffix '-less' means 'without'. Therefore irregardless is a double negative and has the opposite meaning of what is intended, ie. regardless.

Having to listen to sunday league managers screaming the same inane comments all game
"Seconds"
"Penna"
"Winners"

People who insist on writting craic rather than crack - fcuk off, yer nobs.


But my pet hate at the moment is the word "capture" It's used constantly at work "we need to capture this in the Scope of Work and Procedures documents" [cr]

'Gotten' is a great word, I use it when I'm feeling particularly English.

Very true Bill, "ill gotten gains" is a great expression. Probably Shakespeare, I don't know.

People don't know the difference between 'stood' and 'standing', or 'sat' and 'sitting'.

'I was stood on the Holgate'. What? Someone physically propped you up?

'I've been sat here for ages'. What? Someone physically sat you down?

This is extremely common. 99% of people seem to be guilty of it.

Companies that add "solutions" on the end of their name. It doesn't make your company fancy.

Any American words used by anyone from England. A few of my mates are guilty of this and it boils my pish!

Ass and Douchebag are amongst the worst, but one of them once refered to a toilet as a bathroom. Not the type of toilet where there is actually a bath and a shower. Just a plain and simple toilet. To make it worse he blamed it on the amount of time he's spent at southern uni's. I could have punched the vvanker. [:(!][V]
