    Over the last couple of days over both radio and TV I've noticed a lot of people dropping this syllable. Competition became compitish. Version became versh.

    I mourn for it, and hate those that do this.

    That is all.

    What about the poor lions?

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    I've never heard those examples. I think I know what you mean though. I hate the oh-so-trendy-matey abbreviash of words that simply don't warrant it.

    I'm glad I don't watch or listen to the rubbish Lutz obviously does.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Very good mrpon!

    Do you listen to Radio one Lutz? Doesn't sound like the sort of thing our Terry would say.
