This is kind of a tangent on what Idiot was posting about the other day.
There I was on the bus last night. Young college girl with a plummy accent gets on with her mates. The first thing out of her mouth?
"Do you go to Rialto?"
Nothing strange in that you might think as, in fact, the bus did go there. Until I do the phonetic version of course.
"Do you go to Ree-al-tow" Like the bridge in Venice. Well, they both have canals I suppose.
