We don't pronounce nasal vowels in French words as the French do when they're imported into English, for example. This is a perfectly common phenomenon in all languages, including ours, and is not the result of "ignorance". For that matter, you might as well say that our pronunciation of "James" with a dzh- instead of a y- sound at the beginning was a result of our ignorance of Hebrew, Greek or Latin. It's exactly the same process.

But then surely the authority on how someone's name is pronounced is the person whose name it is. As far as I can tell that is certainly "h-". But then the commentators to whom you refer, having strained every sinew to show everyone that they can get that bit right, proceed to pronounce his surname quite wrongly.

And this is the point, it's ok to say it how it sounds to us. The stupid effort they make, it's disingenuous, they only want to appear 'knowledgeable'.

Well, the ones that make a noise that sounds like the Scotch express coming out of a tunnel, as Wodehouse would put it, just make themselves look even more stupid than they already do; but of course by the time they get round to talking about actual players, that ship has well and truly sailed.

In general we don't render foreign proper nouns using sounds that aren't in our own language's phonology, and it sounds affected if we do; but for English there are a couple of exceptions: the sounds in Murdoch, Llewelyn; and then Bach, Rakhmaninov, but not for example the very peculiar consonant in the very common Czech surname Dvořák. Those are special cases because similar sounds occur in Welsh and Gaelic.

The crisp-peddling fraud appears to be channelling Reg Holdsworth tonight.

Because he pretends to not be thick as pigshit, and also not a sexpest.

It's more conversational with this panel - I prefer it to Shearer.

That’ll be Micah Richards who’s all over TV football nowadays

hihi 25-10-2020 09:25 AM

Didn't show the offside goal, neither did Palace TV's 'extended highlights' Was it that obvious?

Latvian 25-10-2020 09:28 AM

Can't understand why the 0-0 was on before us. No goals and they are both beneath us in the table.

They said "Isn't Zaha good?" and not much else.

They often leave out the bits I want to have a look at. Two VAR offsides for a start which if they were onside we would have absolutely buried Fulham. Also wanted to see how Mitchell looked at right back instead of left but maybe there wasn't much evidence of that anyway. Also ISTR Guaita made a decent save at one point, didn't he?
