I live in Lymington, Hampshire, and work in the Law Courts, which may have made my English slightly pedantic. I realize that Americans and other ex-colonials labour under a disadvantage, and regard it as an holy duty to assist them in speaking (and thinking) clearly.

"I don't have my references with me as I write, chiefly because you look so damn silly hauling a bookcase into a pub." Flann O'Brien, Irish Times column.
