Yeah, but do you pronounce "H" as "aitch" or "haitch"?

ugh -- that is a real pet-peeve of mine, and since most australians say "haitch", it's a constant source of irritation to me.

kwij's explanation makes sense, and i guess that also explains why french people always say "elp me, i'm ovair ere!"

Don't remind me...

We have a deal. I don't correct her when she says haitch, and she still makes fun of me when I say 'erb.Then I tell her that Aussies don't know how to talk and they all sound like Paul Hogan anyway, and it all kinda goes downhill from there.
