On a similar vein.

 

People who pronounce the word "film".....FILUM. Where is the U in film??

Filum is the proper way to say Film as is Aliba for the written Alba.

Thats just reminded me.

 

Why do some people clap when a plane's just landed?

 

:lol:

 

I've been known to start a clap just to see if any folk join in... They always do.

 

I then give a few shouts of "YEAH" "WOOOO" to see if folk join in.... They do :lol:

The quiff look and poncy shirts buttoned right up to the top that every bellend/creepy rapist type guy is sporting these days.

 

Body-warmers. When did they become acceptable to wear? Anyone seen in public in a body-warmer was always ridiculed but now it seems to be accepted, even fashionable.

And they have changed the name too. As with jogging bottoms.

These items were not acceptable fashion accessories first time a round and should still be shunned.

I'm no longer in the trade but see when I was behind a bar there was nothing more infuriating than punters telling you how to pour a pint, who to serve next or that a perfectly fizzy pint of lager was flat.

 

I was ready to raise my hands to some of these arseholes on a couple of occasions. Thinking they could do my job better than me because they worked in the Grays Mill twenty years ago.

 

I don't give special respect to the elderly, I give respect to everyone I meet until they do.something to make me stop.

 

People who use Twitter to just get more followers. What do you do when you've got all these followers? Beg for more of course. No discourse, just a timeline clogged with RT FOR A SHOUTOUT #TEAMFOLLOWBACK

 

People that don't like the music I like. Sorry but you're just wrong.

 

Spelling/grammar police on the internet. Stop being so ******* boring. I choose to write correctly, so do you. If someone doesn't why are you so superior as to smugly call them out on every misplaced comma, missing apostophe or using the wrong word?

 

People who know nothing about Scottish football giving it 'Hearts are bust' chat for longer than ten minutes. Cool, if you've only caught a bit about us on ssn I can understand why you might have formed that opinion but Christ, after I've spoken to you at length about the club and how Tynecastle's not being turned into flats and, outside of the old firm, we're quite successful thank you, at least pretend to have taken in what I've said.

 

My sister.

 

Apostrophe.

No it isn't.

Aye it is. If you speak in a Scottish dialect. There is an actual word for pronouncing an extra vowel, but I'm buggered if I can remember it. Someone on here, far better educated than me, will know it though.

It isn't supposed to be pronounced that way though. Just because a load of Scottish people mispronounce it like that doesn't mean that it is correct.

Not that it matters.

It's to do with the local dialect and accent how words like film are pronounced, I'm sure the "mispronunciation" isn't just localised in Scotland either.

 

Pronunciations like this shouldn't get people worked up :lol:

Bursd in talking sh1te shocker!

 

 

Anyway, more annoying than any mispronunciation is people just using completely the wrong word.

 

There's a bursd at my work who calls a radiator a "fire". :facepalm:

Sorry have to disagree again. Couldn't keep a straight face when my late father in law was looking for the "control tower" to change the program on the telly, and my mum is a inexhaustible mine of these too.

The value determines whether said jobsworth should advise you to send it by either recorded or special delivery. They're not just being nosey!

Many people in Scotland say 'fillum' , as do people in Northern Ireland.

 

Many people in Scotland pronounce the name 'Charles' as 'Charrulz,' while many people in England pronounce it more 'Chaahz.'

 

It's not right or wrong, it's just how people speak.

I'm personally a little bit astounded that folk are so genuinely annoyed about accents to be honest... I find the way the Queen talks to be a bit nippy in all honesty.

Brian Whittaker's Tache

Mispronunciations does my head in. Worked with a guy for a year who would pronounce the word "consumer" as "conshumer" Part of his job was dealing with domestic electrical installations in new build houses so "conshumer" units were mentioned about 10 times a day. I wanted to tear his tongue out!

 

Bad manners are my worst seethe inducer. If I start on that I'll be here all night...

Americans trying to correct how we pronounce our youngest son's name. Dropping him off at preschool the other day and one of the mothers says "and who is this?" (in a friendly way i should add). I say - "Fraser". She looks at me and says "oh, you mean Frasier".... "No" says I, "Fraser". "Yes" she says "Frasier". "No" i repeat "It's FRASER". **** me, honestly - like i'm going to pronounce my own kids name wrong. Daft ****.

 

And the bitch in Starbucks when i asked for a medium coffee corrects my friggin accent. I'm going to go into the store one day and assault her.

 

The Indians that work in my office that gather round the place at the coffee shop where the milk is and take forever to put milk and sugar in whatever they are drinking and have friggin life changing conversations at the same time. Hurry up!!

Finally - the guy that sits in the finance dept a few desks away from me (big open plan office) who talks shite all day in a loud voice. I hate him, i'm going to do a jobby in his drawer and then punch his head repeatedly if he doesn't shut the feck up.

The massive over use and out of context use of the word absolutely.

 

Estuary English speakers inabiliy to put their tongues under their top teeth to pronounce th properly.

 

The City of Edinburgh Council for completely ******* the city up with their vanity project. I want to see some of them (Dawes for one) in the jail for this. ?1.6b for 7 ******* miles of toy town ******* railway!!

****s that come up to the bar and ask for a pint of Peroni and then look like I've just asked them if I can shag their daughter when I ask them for ?4.85

 

People that order about fifteen drinks and finish off with "oh aye, and 2 pints of Guinness"

 

People that come up to the bar with a list of 15 drinks and try to give them to you 1 at a time. Give me the fecking list and I'll make them for you, you moron.

 

People that stand at the bar, getting in the way of everyone else needing served and then expect to get served whenever they want just because they're stood at the bar.

 

I guarantee I'll have to deal with all the above this weekend.

 

Insurance companies.

 

Money in shares making ?1.27 per year interest.

 

People who write "of" instead of "off". Also getting "they're", "their", "there" wrong.

 

People who spell Tennents, Tennants.

 

Shaving.

 

The noise that Tesco delivery vans make when they reverse.

 

Playing 5-a-sides with people who have no idea how to play. I don't mean being able to pass or shoot. If someone's crap at football I can understand that. It's the idiots who have no idea about tracking runners, stopping the other team playing easy one-twos and trying to beat the entire team themselves that I can't stand.

 

Sellick fans.

 

Not being able to sleep when I'm tired and it's all I want to do.

I'm not debating whether the entire world speaks like that. Of course it doesn't.

 

It is however the correct pronunciation of the word, sans-superfluous "u". Filum sounds stupid and is not the correct way to say the word. That is what was being debated.

This modern trend of using 'of' rather than 'have' - e.g. 'He should of remembered' - Where on EARTH did that abuse of the English language come from? Disgusting. The mark of the uneducated.

 

There was a guy at the semi with the print on his top that said "Should of been" and the number 10 below it. I appreciated the sentiment but was enraged that neither his mates nor the printers corrected him.

You think wrong, since I am clearly correct.

OK Alba is the stick on word for this. It is pronounced Aliba. Not just by thicko's like me but even the BBC, who run a station called BBC Alba, call it BBC Aliba.

Also Mrs 2aFish(!) has a degree in relation to the subject and Creepy Lurker was Professor Lurker to French kids last year. Both back me up.

Now I know another jkb member who hasn't posted yet, and has a brain the size of a small planet, agreed with you because we had the same talk in Florida,but came round to the right way of thinking after me and his Mrs/my Sister in Law, got him telt.

What does alba have to do with anything? We're talking about the correct pronunciation of the english word "film", not some gaelic channel.

Alba is Gaelic. A completely different language.

Someone is trying to argue that film is pronounced "filum"?
