Was on a date with a Spanish chick the other night and she was talking about the inconsistencies within the English language

She used the example that you pronounced “John Grant” like “Ant” with an emphasis, but “Immigrant” without the emphasis.

I said you can pronounced John Grant without the emphasis. No-ones going to care.

Oh an before anyone calls me out on “Spanish chick”, she has moved over here from Madrid.

Oh and before anyone calls me out on “an”, that was a typo.

People need to study the English language and understand how it developed before they even think of criticising it.

You can pronounce ‘pronounce’ with a D if you like too

Hahahaha!

So, how was the date ?

who cares about the date? Was music was playing over the restaurant speakers?

Grant rhymes with aunt not ant.

And regardless I cannot understand what emphasis we’re talking about here. John Grant is just said flat in English.

Yeah sorry that’s what she meant, she was confused that you wouldn’t say “Immi-graunt”
