Ok , so it's only one word I want to bring to the table this morning.
This word is constantly being abused by American TV and movie actors and it is driving me insane every time it is used.
'What word?' I hear you cry. 'Tell us, tell us!'
There! A harmless looking little word, isn't it.
But it seems some Americans just don't know how to say it correctly!
It should be aunt and in ant and not aunt as in awnt (as used in awning or dawn).
The final straw came in (one of) yesterday's episodes of NCIS when DiNozzo (to whom I bear an uncanny resemblance with the exception of height, weight and looks) referred to someone as being the 'awnt' of a suspect.
This has been boiling up inside of me ever since this word was first (on TV anyway) abused by Will Smith in The Prince of Bel-air and now ... well, I've had enough (Oh, I was so close to issuing profanities via my saintly fingers).
Please, please, please say it the correct way in future.
That's it! My 'fire' has been extinguished.
Have a nice day, y'all.
