I've endured 10 minutes, and decided its bedtime. Her precise way of speaKing, and her over emphasise of the letter K, "and I thinK......" is driving me nuts, as well as the constant waving of hands showing off her French polish, enough is enough. Her dominatrix look coupled with a 'granny' sweater (strange choice) might be liked by Eamonn , but looks a bit meahhhhh !
I agree with both of you & have spent 30 minutes wading through several video tutorials about pronunciation. She doesn't pronounce K or T correctly she's just acquired her affectation for the TV. I always think she sounds as though she's eating something dense like a brownie.I know you and I agree on this wholeheartedly, but I don't know whether it's her over pronunciation of the letter K or the letter T that grates upon me the most - When I hear her say the word coTTon, I literally want to climb the wall! Then saying that she'll say the word sKirt or bucKle and it'll have a similar effect! It may be the correct pronunciation, but somehow she makes it sound so "affected" - I don't normally feel the need to wince when I hear somebody speaking RP. I know how to speak proper (lol) and most of the time I feel that I do, but I do miss the odd g every now and then, and call Spurs Tot'nam, and say tishoo but hearing the "proper" alternatives to me, is enough to turn the milk sour!
Back to the jumper - like I said before it looks shiny and tight and I can imagine it being an absolute sod to keep looking new!
