It would depend a bit on what's acceptable I suppose.
If I were to pronounce it like the Toyota, but with the 'R' I' m used to in Sweden, would that get accepted?
But I suppose I would be cheating, I've been to Wales.
Don't worry. He was taken out by the Pronunciation Unit and shot shortly thereafter. There is no excuse for mispronunciation at the Beeb. I once read Donal as Donald in a piece I used to do for Radio Berkshire (in its first incarnation). Fortunately it wasn't live or I might not be here to tell the tale. I still bear the scars. :shiver:
Oh, I was caught at just the right time, for the "them who can't" idiots.
I could read and write before I went to infant school (not quite as well as I can now, but I got by), but the "them as can't" geniuses decided that that was the year they were going to use ITA, a completely ridiculous not-at-all-phonetic-really written language to teach children to write.
I was taken out of the school and packed off to public school, after I took a hand-made Mothers' Day card home that my mother couldn't read.
And I wrote left-handed, before going to school, but they forced me to write right-handed, so my handwriting has always been terrible.
f*****g, f*****g morons.
The only people more stupid than teachers are their students -- and that's the teachers' fault!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
The nefarious subliminal messages now saturating media from the goat conspiracy reach a new low here, where they not only violate sheep, that much maligned, and oft-violated species, but also reveal their aspirations to be treated like dogs ! [^].
This wholesale re-write of the history of animal-husbandry and domestication, financed partly by the panjandrums of the mohair industry in cahoots with the Angora tribe, comes complete with the testimonials of paid-for scientists, who are probably are "into" goats because they are satanists.
Shameful, I say. What child was ever lulled gently to sleep by counting goats ? When the sheep-dogs get wind of this, they're not just going to run in circles: no, it's going to be baad.
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
As a Capricorn I have to say it's high time the goat was appreciated for its true value and nobility. Too long have the sheep oppressed with impunity, pulling the wool over human eyes and fleecing farmers while ramming home their insidious messages of hate. The truth cannot be hidden much longer. It is time for a caprine Renaissance! Shame upon all those who deny it!
I agree we should make a stand for the noble goat, but one with a rotisserie and a charcoal pit.
