Another new, sh1t one that's unstoppable is people saying that they're "excited for the football today", instead of "excited about".
It does my head in... well, not as much as other things, but it obviously doesn't make sense. :D

Linguist Professor Kate Burridge is sometimes on the radio, and it really surprises me how lenient she is about new ways of speaking.
I reckon it's because linguists by their very nature understand how language works and evolves, and that there is no point getting uptight about rules and how words should be used.

I'm still trying to get my head around what Liam 'Someone' on Triple M said yesterday about Aaron Naughton after he hurt his knee: "he doesn't look too inconsolable". Does that make sense? :D So, Naughton was consolable, right?
Ok, it makes sense; I just thought it was amusing.:p

daisy pearce said something again this morning that's deserved of a post here. I cant remember what it was though, but only to say the word she said was missing a syllable.
