MORR midweek grammar quips, quirks, quotes, pics and puns!
Inspired by a tweet à tweet with @e_gran and @theheadsoffice with a little provocation from @tonyparkin we chatted about our pet hates for mispronunciation as well as misuse of words.
How many words do hear mispronounced on a daily basis?
Some are incredibly painful to the ears and others make you laugh.
I often end up subtly correcting by repeating it back correctly and then there are occasions where I am simply blunt and say it how it is!
Often found myself correcting my last deputy for his ‘I seen him ……’ Nightmare!
ORRsome video clip really made me laugh!
