Re: How come english people
Why do people say 'how come' when enquiring into something instead of saying 'why do'?

Re: How come english people
Bollocks are testicles. Something that is "bollocks" is "crap"...however if it's the "dog's bollocks" it's actually good.
And illiterate people say "us" when only referring to themselves. The royal "we" is something different altogether.

Re: How come english people
It's not about being illiterate, I say 'us' because it's part of my dialect!

Why do americans nop pronounce the H in Herbs?

Re: How come english people
Yes I know it's said by *some* people of that particular dialect - but it's completely incorrect, and people of that dialect who speak properly don't say that.

Re: How come english people
@uzelth - ah my mistake, voyager was never really my favourite of them all.

@him - no, herbs is pronounced erbs by many an american. And mirror is pronounced mirrr in (at least some of)the usa too, have you not seen donnie darko?

@PrinceBenjamin - it's actually due to the fact it stems from a french word, where the h was silent. We british pronounced the h though. Americans, after they split from the British Empire, began to ronounce it the french way both in protest at the british, and because they loved the french back then.

what confuses me though is why the name craig is pronounced creg in america though. Im watching malcolm in the middle atm and it's annoying me immensely everytime lois's boss is featured.
