Senoufou BS: Language Pet Peeves (1633* d) RE: BS: Language Pet Peeves 15 Jan 21

Perhaps Dylan was actually talking to a hen, exhorting it to produce an egg on his bed?
I suppose quite a few people haven't studied languages/grammar at any depth, so the words 'transitive' and 'intransitive' wouldn't mean much to them.
I'm always put on alert when someone says, "I don't mean to be rude but..." or "I'm not going to lie to you but...". The 'but' means they jolly well do and will!
Weather forecasters - oh yes! "Wrap up warm" er... are you my mum? And it's 'warmly' - adverb please.
"The weather out there..." Where else would it be? Inside my house?
The older I get, the more crotchety I become. I should wrap up warm and lay down.
