Great British storyline (pun intended)!
I am not a native speaker, but shouldn’t it read “about Jim and me” instead of “about Jim and I”? If one leaves out “Jim and”, “about I” sounds akward.
True but people do make grammatical mistakes when speaking.
I can’t comment about other languages but native English speakers do. In fact, someone who only speaks in grammatically correct sentences in English is usually a sign that someone is from outside the culture.
Slightly off topic but if you’re interested in a view of the way British culture is embedded in the way we use language then you may be interested in the programme:
I am totally sausage*
Available from the site for BBC Radio 4’s Seriously. In it a German comedian, who now works in the UK, comments on how Germans and British people talk.
*Done from memory so may have a slightly different name.
Thanks for the explanation. Found the programme you mentioned: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05pbwjp
You weren’t on the wood way 😉
Although his English sounds very British to my German ears.
Oh oh oh! Does the little guy in the last panel, looking over at Ally, have the making of an international romance??
It’s funny how each of us gets a read on a character. I thought the last panel guy might be a little creepy and a problem. I like how you see him and I’m much happier with the last panel now.
Oh I understand! Well it could be read either way. Particularly because in the last panel Ally is talking about trolls, and if it was a movie there might be ominous music, so we play the music in our head. I think it’s partially “Charlie’s” small stature that helped me see him as non-threatening..and also..I’m just a big romantic at heart and really want Ally to have a great relationship!!!
And here my first instinct was he was a would-be troll.
