no a lisp is when they can't pronounce the S sound correctly
it's like...

"Yeth (yes), i do want to theteal (steal) that girlth (girl's) thexthy (sexy) outfit!"

See the difference?
While saying toof and burfday could also be caused by summer teeth.

Or you could just be like, Jeff Garthia...

Yes, Jeff Garcia has a rather noticeable lisp...Sadly, when he was the 49er's QB all of my friends would make fun of San Francisco by saying that it was so befitting of the city...

Socio-linguists are full of shit, psycho-linguists are where its at.

And i believe that i have mentioned before that i despise most English accents and dialects .

I even get Angry at myself when my PA accent worms its way into my voice.


While very interesting, I would say that psycho-linguists are as much full of shit as socio-linguists..

As long as it's applied to everyone, I guess I can't complain.

really hate it when people make fun of how you sound like and picture you as a hick or country bear.

The word "ignorant"

Too many people assume that means either stupid,biased,hateful or a combination thereof. Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupidity is a slowness of the mind.

If I talk about a taboo topic and give an opinion that you don't like, I'm NOT ignorant. I do my fucking homework. I am,however, an opinionated asshole. Use that instead.

You think your so great. Its there own choice.

Lately, one disgusting thing I saw was 'misrable'. GOOD GOD! DON'T SPELL LIKE HOW YOU PRONOUNCE IT!

But since Gev was talking about pronunciation matters, I think it's hilarious how some people insist on pronouncing it the wrong way and insist that they are correct 'all along', which they are not getting anywhere near 'along'.. 'off the track', 'far away' maybe.

I hate it when people say in Singapore call film - flerm. FLERM?! WTF? FLERM YOUR HEAD!


Sometimes its not on purpose that we pronounce it that way, its because from young we're taught to pronouce it that way and when you grow older its difficult to change your way of pronouncing it so please don't be so harsh on us singaporeans
