They really fucking annoy me.
aren't you ?
My name is Lyle.
I said !
And "pronounciation" for "pronunciation".
Doesn't really annoy me though. I just notice it.
My mum said it once in the context of what the right pronunciation was. How we laughed!
it is pronounced ...'pronunciation'
oh wait, yeh, your saying the same as me! yeh the other way is ridiculous
they really fucking annoy me.
no, seriously, it's quite annoying having to bare the brunt of someones every mood swing constantly
Unless you're the one who keeps annoying them?
i cant explain it fnaf'w
thats the untruest thing ever thing ever!
thats quite annoyed me
i've never been really moody with you.
i've let you know when you've said things i dont like, but i;ve never gone off into a strop!
that wastes too much time inwhich icould be having fun
someone said "mischievious" and it midly irritated me for a few seconds. Then Heroes came on and I forgot about it
and then I forget it.
I pronounce it "stupidnamestupidnamestupidname".

i think its a welsh thing?
instead of Racism.
subsequently, i was always worried about Ray.
You blow a bit of air out as you say words like whales, white, whip, where, when...
It means you can hear the difference between Wales and whales.
adaption instead of adaptation! GRRR
that said it! It made me not trust anything he said.
instead of antidisestablishmentarianism.
you say the things that I want to say but never would
Like Americans who use Britishism. Meh!
I wouldn't say it was pretentious, not over here anyway. Just not knowing how to pronounce mischievous.
approach to pronunciation. Great for you guys, you have the greatest accents fer sure. But for someone born in here.
Although I pretended to be British once when I was extremely drunk in Las Vegas... in order to get laid. It worked but it still cost me $200.
This is bit of a tangent, but I'm always interested in how 'we' are defined from an external perspective.
I mean here nobody really talks about being 'British', except politicians. I mean I might describe myself as 'English' to somebody from another country but even that doesn't really mean much. More to the point, from my perspective, some people with Scottish accents sound as different from me as Americans do.
Do you have a similar thing in the states, or do you have more of a sense of national identity or exclusivity versus the rest of the English-speaking world?
actually i know quite a few people who define themselves as british. (i'd describe myself as scottish).
it is a minority that do so, but there are a lot of english people living in scotland, who define themselves as british for their own piece of mind. And also some liberal scottish people who support the union who'd describe themselves as british.
i do agree that british is a bit redundant in england, because it doesnt reallt add anything, but it has more significance here (even if very few people define themselves as much)
"I'M NOT SCOTTISH! HONEST!!"
And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."
It makes you sound like a mong.
so I just gave in.
you're better than they are.
The second is loads more fun to say and means you probably have a big willy if you do.
But if I were to do so, I'd definitely go for that second option.
instead of 'proNUNciation' can FUCK OFF.
