    The cheeky blighters are calling us a 'sub-forum'...That's like referring to British English as a 'regional dialect'

    American cultural imperialism...we must be constantly on our guard.;)

    Well, considering how much the language has changed over there since your precipitous departure in 1781, it is a wonder we can even can even have a intelligible conversation today.:lol:

    Yes indeed Jeff, it's a wonder that we can even can even do anything...

    I think that you've reduced your keyboard to an apoplectic stammering !

    Truth to tell, I've been out of the UK for more than fifteen years and most of my reading is of seventy year old diaries and periodicals and my English useage is now bordering on the archaic.

    I struggle to understand the Yoofertoday.:unsure:

    We're more a Pepsi and Dr. Pepper crowd ourselves, although being from the Deep South, we tend to call any carbonated beverage a "coke" regardless of what it actually is.
    "Yontah a coke?"
    "Yeah."
    "Whut ki?n." <that is a long "I" sound
    "How 'bout a Sprite or a Sebemup."

    Whew...thought I was in trouble. We don't speak the Queen's English. We speak Mer-can.

    Oh no, Za, I likes infernal combustion engines ! and I be afeard of 'orses ! Both ends can kick and one can bite as well.

    ...and despite my best efforts, I can't keep them away from Disney channel. Noisy Americans dubbed by noisy Dutch, Horrible !

    The American way of life, as shown in American high-school teenage programmes is, quite frankly, rather scary.

    I think that the now cancelled TV show "My Name Is Earl" and the movie "Joe Dirt" does a pretty good job of it.

    What do we do with the Queen's English when Charles/William ascends the throne? How does the Kings English differ from the Queens English?

    It's surely put in a box in The Tower until next time.
