- Is “I am sat” bad English? 7 answers
I know my sentence is dreadful but everyone now uses these words in this way, including my eight children aged 19—26. Yes, they are from Manchester but my husband uses he was took and he’s from Leicester.
This was never used when I was younger. Is there an easy way to explain why it is wrong, or do I have to accept it?
