Thanks for the entertainment.
I do like to hear clearly and correctly spoken language. Phrasing matters too. My Mother told me of her 'hotline' conversation with the BBC when she heard a radio announcer say "The Police are looking for a black cab driver". Mother wanted to be sure whether it was the driver of a 'black cab' or a black 'cab driver'... She was back on the telephone when there was 'a lecture by a teacher on drugs' Needless to say the next news bulletins were delivered to her satisfaction.

Pronunciation is so important. I corrected my nephew's delivery of my son's name from Faowip to Philip. I wonder how my nephew might have written it down?
Spelling matters too. My new insurance form arrived to Mrs Rickthing, adding two new consonants and omitting another one!
Am I bovverred?
Yes, you guessed it, I am!
