Re: [Czechlist] Re: sweet vs. desert
- Sorry Jamie, I wasn't trying to ignore you, just took the weekend off and
changed into my bricklaying mode...
Dylan's already explained the socio-geographical facts, my sentence was
merely trying to say that because the tidbits someone uttered during a focus
groups and that were so important that they had to be included in the
resport between inverted commas are often very informal, distinctly Zizkov
(the end closer to Hlavni nadrazi), to keep the analogy... anyway, I was
trying to say that as I am using informal BritEng in those bits (what I
learned around building sites in various parts of England, well, only a
small part of what I learned there), it would sound odd if I suddenly
changed into American in the formal part of the report..
East Enders is a soap opera, people put on fake working-class (possibly East
London, I wouldn't know) accents in it...

- to add a little to this tasty conversation - we have several places
in town selling frozen custard. Very delicious and fattening, tastes
like thick, full bodied ice cream. That makes the idea that custard
is eaten warm go out the window:)
