The BBC just published this piece on Americanisms: your 50 most noted examples. How many are you guilty of?
My pet hate is Number 1: “Can I get....” and I know people who say that.
One of my friends, “Real Ale Alan”, takes issue with Number 45.
I am guilty of saying ‘season’ for ‘series’ (Number 44).
I have already blogged on Number 25: Normalcy (and what a great excuse to go and look at some pictures of SamnDean).
I might be missing something with Number 22 and his problem with ‘train station’*, if so… My bad!
*self-edit – My bad indeed…. it should be railway station of course, what a terrible crime against language 🙂
