It's one Americanism I can really get behind.

How do you do this? I can't even work out how this would work. :lol:

Basically a 'v' instead of a 'th'.

It's an unacceptable opinion really as there must be plenty of accents that incorporate it and who am I to tell them how they should speak :lol: but that's what the mythical Murder Pit is for, I think :shifty:.


I genuinely can’t figure out which of these I do. :slol:

I used to pronounce 'th' as 'v' as that's normal in my regional/class accent, but I was mercilessly(!!!) mocked for it at university, so I put in conscious effort to change how I spoke. I kind of wish I hadn't in retrospect as no-one should be judging someone else for what kind of background they're from.

That's similar to me except I pronounced 'th' like an 'f' instead. But after trying hard to fix that, I now get tongue tied between the two instead which is even more embarrassing.

"Thollow me to the featre" for example :(

I do that sometimes too! My 'th's, 'f's, and 'v's occasionally get a bit mixed up. It must be something to do with "re-training" later in life! For what it's worth, I don't think many people notice if you just carry on speaking, but I realise I've done it so there's always a slight sense of embarrassment when it happens!

I'm sorry you got socially pressured out of speaking in your normal way, Karl. I have definitley been guilty of doing that to other people in the past.

...and I will do it every time my American wife pronounces "snooker" to rhyme with "hooker".

On the subject of Stoke, use to wind me the strawberry float up that Delap was allowed to wipe the ball clean with towel for his throw ins. I've seen others do it too. Surely against the rules to use outside "equipment".

Have you never heard the act of using your arms to leverage a football back into the field of play referred to as a shy before? Foul shy, long shy, shy. Must be a Scottish thing! :shifty:

If I have heard of it before, I have not remembered it since!

So essentially the word shy can be used as a direct replacement for throw-in (but not just throw)?
