Thread: The way people talk these days - esp news items

    The way people talk these days - esp news items

    I may be just getting grumpy but I seriously dislike the current way of apparently raising a question at the end of each sentence - started in Aus. I also cannot abide the sing-songy way that Americans, particularly women, talk about everyday items.
    I admit I am one of life's extended sentence people, love the intellect in precision and that Victorian way of speaking. I also value the British understatement and hate emotional rants - maybe I should emigrate to France - do they have deer over there ?

    No, no deer in France at all. Also full of young people with their funny trousers, and hippety hoppety music, funny ideas and poor spelling.

    But if you don't speak French you will not know if they are ranting of not ........... Just a thought plus in the EU superstate not being able to speak the countries language is no longer an issue.

    Emigrate to France? You find the way Australians speak annoying? So you prefer the Victorian way of speaking? Like they do in Melbourne in Victoria then? Or Queen Victoria?



    My son lives in South Yarra, Melbourne, Victoria. he hates the way they do it too! Every sentence becomes a question! Imagine my son...he gets it everyday! Anyway here's Rex.....
