TOPIC: Ter

Ter 1 Week ago  
Why has everyone started saying "Ter" instead of of the full word "To" or the shorter "T'"?

Not that it matters. Speech changes all the time but it seems sudden and I am curious how it started.
Even Queen Elizabeth has lengthened her T's.

I can't account for HM Honey, but 'ter' is certainly not used in the circles I move in...

That's interesting. I hadn't noticed it before and must look out for it. One of the things that is really starting to irritate me (JK pointed it out) is how many people interviewed on TV start whatever they're going to say with "so". Another thing I find annoying is people saying "buck" when they mean "book".

Anything one is starting a sentence with "basically" and TV presenters using "erm" if you're an a 'professional' on TV then you should be able to avoid "Erm".

I don't understand why they interview footballers whom can't construct a sentence.

Passing the "buck" does not annoy me but when the media/politicians misqoute other people to fit their agenda really pisses me off.

I think ter is a northern thing, and has been around for years. Are you going ter pub. In Leeds they don't use the word THE very much, and say things like get in t'car.

What annoys me is that people have stopped extenuating their verbs. E.g everyone says these days "He's done brilliant", rather than he's done brilliantly, which I find really annoying. It seems that the "ly" is dropping from the English language.
