Subject: RE: UK Folk Revival 2018
Regarding the use of 'ours' as in 'our songs' (meaning 'the songs we collected' and, worse 'our travellers' (meaning 'the travellers we collected songs from').

Nobody's accusing Jim of behaving a la Kennedy.

'our recordings' seems tickety boo to me.

Decent shorthand sums up what you want to say or notes it down in a quicker form. Poor shorthand says something that you might not wish to say.

Given that people are arguing that words are so important in songs, lets use them with respect and thought when we can.
