comment “I couldn't but laugh” - correct or not?
@Man_From_India none of the question states I couldn't laugh - are you getting it confused with I couldn't NOT laugh?

@TimLymington are you sure? I couldn't help but laugh to me means exactly what Daniel Harbour said in his answer - I could not help laughing.

"get what I'm saying" and "see what I'm saying" (more common than "hear what I'm saying", but also "you get me" and "you hear me") are very common

comment Pronunciation of “lorry”, “worry” and “sorry”
Adequate answer to my question. Sort of like wan should sound like man, but instead makes a won sound (wanted)... except in other cases such as a widely used swearword with the same first three letters (can't think of any other examples). My argument for using "lurry" has always been worry is the same spelling yet different sound... I guess this eliminates that defense.

@AndrewLeach - I am, in fact, from Manchester, so you could be very much correct
