#208666 - 01/02/13 01:47 PM Re: osmotic language change [Re: Rhubarb Commando]
ho hum, just checked with my daughter and she corrected me firmly:
"No Dad, I never use that phrase, it's only Jim who does, and he has picked it up from American TV."
So there we have it, language change on the cusp - the older child doesn't use it, the younger one and all his mates do.
