47988Re: [Czechlist] "Call us on"
- Dec 27, 2011This Brit would say "call us on", and I don't think I'm totally untypical.
Although since returning to Britain 18 months ago I've heardmany usages
that sound foreignn to my ears, a lot of them borrowed from over the pond.
E.g. it is no longer "coffee to take away" but "coffee to go", etc., and of
course there is also the upward intonation at the end of an affirmative
sentence that I still find unnerving/irritating.
With best wishes for the new year,
