...is ever evolving with new words, phrases etc....
Ive noticed that the way we talk also evoles, sometimes to my horror.
For some time now noticely on the telly amd radio, people are starting the their sentences with the word 'So......' Why?
Its just as annoying as people who constantly talk as if they are asking a question. I think Stephen Fry mentioned this when he appeared on Room 101.
Does this irk anyone else?

So, like, i hear the lot of you bab!
Thank you for answering my question
Saying 'K' in response to a post really grinds my gears.

And people who say'grinds my gears' they really pliss me off.
I AM STILL SPARTACUS
I believe Spartacus ended up being crucified. Be warned.
"He was stood there". No, he was standing there.
"She was sat there". No, she was sitting there.

Whatever happened to tenses?
I detest 'end of' a verbal two fingered salute. Aso the habit of raising one's voice at the end of any sentence, whether it's a question or not. what OH calls the antipodean interrogative as I believe it's common down there.
