We accept ours as normal and reasonable, but it's possible to have a very different outlook and feel that that's the most sensib...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

19.40 Such of them as make up their minds to return to their country ... Read as "the country" (so my mind heard that as "the countryside")

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Mayhew does seem to have an innocent ignorance of the inaccuracies in his estimates. When you've been told that around 5% of vagrants are "truly deserving", there's no point in quoting costs to the nearest halfpenny!

Section 84 PL okay.

Re: Pronunciation help: all languages

Could someone speak the following French line for me, please? It's from a Sherlock Holmes story.
Un sot trouve toujours un plus sot qui l'admire.

Re: Banned sound effects

I see; I can understand why the decision was made. But it does seem like an over-reaction to me.

Thanks for your investigation, Tricia.

Re: Banned sound effects

Part of my difficulty with this comes from my feeling that the decision was made without general discussion. Someone .. or ones ... changed a fluid situation into a rigid one without asking the certainly hundreds (and possibly thousands) of active members of the forum who would be effected.

Re: Slips of the tongue

Old tongue twister: I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's son and I'll go on plucking pheasants till the pheasant plucking's done.

Too easy to switch similar sounds and get an unintended meaning. Designed to lubricate the tongue.
