    Word UP! Pay attention to be taught latest Youf speak from the UK

    Hey all,

    in light of little or no posting, and that I'm in a good mood and looking forward to going out tonight to get munted (very drunk) I thought I'd follow on from the pants fad to the new one;
    innit

    "Innit" has now pervaded most walks of life media-wise and means "isn't it." It's not to be used in correct context and it is this malapropism that has made it a buzzword and an engenderment of the zeitgeist. It comes from the black bashment clubs of South London (pron' - Sarf Landon)

    Here're four examples;

    Correct use

    I love goin' out, innit!

    These American's are crazy, innit!

    Incorrect use

    This is mad, innit!

    Tomorrow's Good Friday, innit!

    Usually it is said in a common squeaky accent, perhaps like a stereotypical Essex girl. But let's not try to run before we can walk

    So, now you know, I'd like to see this adopted into your daily vocab along with "pants" (which is getting a bit passť now, BTW)

    Now, for your homework, I'd like you to come up with 2 good examples and 2 incorrect examples of your own. Better make it about mms or we run the risk of gettin the thread deleted, innit

    np: I'ma tell ya - Schooly D

    "eat a choy, eat a choy, eat a choy choy mate! innit!" :happy:
    (say following while twirling billyclub)
    "'ello 'ello 'ellohh, what's awl this then innit!"
    vt
    np: english beat, "twist & crawl"

    that's all very well,.....

    .... but it doesn't seem to mean anything; "Eat a choy."

    FWIW, I remember seeing it an' wondering what the Hello you were going on about, innit.

    I'm so lame I thought it was "idnit" - same meaning - which we've been saying since I was still in grade school.

    Having just returned from the US here is a true story about our US friends perversion of the mother tongue.........

    THIS IS TRUE

    Last week, I was in a museum in Raliegh called Exploris.

    I was outside the museum with the entry sticker on my t-shirt when a old lady with a very broad Southern drawl approached me and asked......

    "Murmer, murmer, murmer, son?" - old dear

    "Pardon ?" - BC3

    "Murmer, murmer, murmer, son?" - old dear again

    "Sorry ?" - BC3


    "DO......YOU......WORK.......HERE.....SON ?" - old dear again in very slow loud voice

    "Oooh!!!!!!! No, I'm just visiting" - BC3

    "Pardon ?" - old dear

    "No, I'm just visiting" - BC3

    "DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH ?" - old dear

    ! - BC3

    AND........

    To add insult to injury............

    They have re-dubbed BOB THE BUILDER with an American accent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Upset

    W/B BC3. I suppose you upheld the British standards of politeness by not telling her to boll**** (your use of 'old dear' must also appear so quaintly english to our foreign MMers, like.
