This is from the main page:-The BBC plans to let anyone download the iPlayer by the fall
Am I missing something here?
The Fall is an American expression for Autumn.As far as I know we are not yet the 51st State!If this is a wind-up - you got me, fair and square!
The dime has just dropped.
click hereNo wind up, that's what it says. Presumably we are eentering a new phase of the Americanisation of the English language, with compulsory use of Aluminum, Nukiller, Catsup and other such words.I hate it and that's all I'm gonna say, period.Oh blast !!!
I remember seeing similar objections to the word 'teenager' when it was new and unfamiliar. If it hadn't become part of our language we'd have to resort to 'person between the ages of twelve and twenty' or something similar.
See the section under Word Origin at:click hereYou appear to be giving your age away...:-)
"You appear to be giving your age away...:-)"Yup :-)
