Just a quick clip about pronunciation and speaking correctly.
You have probably seen this text some time or another during the past, say 10 years:
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.
Over at Mighty Red Pen these guys are mocking that text, explaining it all to you. It is worth a few minutes of your times. I, at least, smiled a bit.
But if you managed to read my headline before reading the rest of this post, you’re off the hook.
Have a great evening!
Today’s song is my favourite yulesong. I don’t know why this has become one of my favourites. I’m sure his accent has something to do with it, as well as his unpretentious voice and style. I love the melody, and it’s great to sing along to.
So with this 1987 song I’ll send you a póg mo thóin and wish you a fabulous Tuesday.
