    Melanie, you are sounding a little Cockney there.

    There are a lot of Cockney expressions that will drive people around Johnny. We tend to end a lot of saying as if they were a question. One popular expression is "innit". "That's a fine mess, innit." It is not a question.

    In Cockney we rhyme words such as apples and pears for stairs, but we only use the non-rhyming word when we speak. So, we are going apples,,,,if we are going upstairs.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    The ISBN number (of a book)

    And this is the absolute worst, and I hear it on broadcast news on TV and everywhere!

    "He gave John and I a wonderful time!"

    Horrible, horrible, horrible beyond words!

    I would rather hear any of the above listed words and phrases than the cursing and offensive slang that is so common today.
