Way back when, when I was in school or high school, (can’t remember which it was that long ago), I can swear my English teacher taught me that ”an” only goes before a word starting with a vowel.
An apple, an egg, an orange, an igloo, an unusual object.
Either way, my bitch is that so many tv presenters and hosts over the last few years drop the ”h” from words and put ”an” in front of them when they shouldn’t.
”An” orrible (a horrible)
”An” orrific (a horrific)
HAVE YOU SINGLE HANDEDLY CHANGED THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE?????
And I know they put ”an” in front of more words they believe they can drop the first letter off of, but seriously you have to have some sort of communications, journalism, and English degree to get into the media and reporting.
So I should bloody hope that you all know how to speak ”actual” English, even though so many of you don’t seem to know ”simple” English and where to put the word ”an” and how not to drop ”h” off of words.
Seriously people, SPEAK ENGLISH!!!!!!!
