Banished from the Queen’s English?
I laughed so much I nearly fell off my dictionary
A group of Americans at Lake Superior State University in Michigan have compiled a list of words, phrases, and idioms which they would like to see banned from the “Queen’s English”. Words and phrases, which they believe, have become so over used that they have lost the concept of their original meaning.
Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind them trying to improve the American linguistic culture, but what makes me laugh is their mistaken belief that America speaks the Queen’s English – come on get real dudes!
