'Are you all right?'and
'No, I'm half left'
'I literally died laughing'and so on. So I got to thinking about things that people say that annoy me, and felt that I had to share a particular irritation, in the interests of helping you all not to annoy me. So here it is.
The thing I find possibly more irritating than anything else in the conversational world is when people who are speaking English come to a foreign word, and say it in a foreign accent. For instance, someone is talking about their friend 'Cecile'. Instead of saying 'I met se-sEal for lunch', they insist on saying 'I met se-sEeeeeeeel for lunch'. Or, for instance, there is a road near me called 'Thiepval Avenue'. If you're from these parts, you call it 'Theep-ville'. But some people call it 'Tyepp-vallll', and that annoys me. Because it's ok to anglicize things, and not have to show how good you are at talking foreign.
As an example, consider the sentence 'This summer I will go to Paris'. If you say 'This summer I will go to Pareee', unless you are joking, you will sound like a tube. Thus, by extension, we can see that it is ridiculous to foreignize other words, and my point is proven.
