Oh, of course you can also return the survey directly via email: mr09y850@campus.unibe.ch

Thanks!



Research project: How do you feel about young Londoner’s way of speaking?

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 15:55:14 +0000

Hello London-SE1!

I need your help. I’m a postgrad at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Bern, Switzerland, where I’m currently collecting data for a research project about people’s attitudes towards Multicultural London English (sometimes colloquially referred to as [b]‘‘Jafaican’’[/b]) – I want to know what Londoners think about that way of speaking and about the people who speak it – I thought this forum might be a good place to ask!

Do you have an opinion about the way (many) young Londoners speak? Do you ever use MLE in your own speech? Do you think speaking MLE impact one’s career?

[b]If you live in London[/b] and have an opinion about questions like these, I’d be grateful if you’d fill in the project’s survey (takes about 10 min).

Here's the [url=https://docs.google.com/document/d/1d4lPD858F_vb9TYylUbcMlSaLO-C20CghY2TeVkKLgc/edit?usp=sharing]Google Docs link to the survey.[/url]. You need to download it to edit. I apologise for the archaic design of the the questionnaire - there are no interactive boxes in this version, so when it tells you to circle an option you literally have to write an 'X' next to it instead.

Anyway, when you're done filling out the questionnaire, please upload the file to Google Docs or a filehoster like [url=http://pixeldra.in]like PixelDrain[/url] and send me the link via private message. I really appreciate your input!

[b]Disclaimer:[/b]
Your questionnaire will only be used for research purposes. The data will be collected anonymously and you do not have to provide your name or any other identifying information, unless you wish to do so. No-one will be able to trace your identity, and the research outputs will not contain any other information that would allow readers to identify you, either.

Jan I was wondering how you were we have all missed you you are correct in general.. the old doctors gps etc worked 24/7 on a voluntary Rota system this mutually acceptable arrangement was interfered with and changed by Tony Blair scoundrel! , yet another charge to lay at his door

Having moved out of se1 , I then had to find a GP. At my old gps.you would ring for an appointment, the phone phone rang or engaged tone.
Ringing new surgery had answer straight away,explained needed prescription, doctor phones back job done I thought. In the afternoon rang back to see if prescription was ready. Answered immediately then I got ..push one for reception, two for prescriptions, three,four,five etc. Pushed the relevant one, it rang for two minutes then dropped into number unobtainable...several sodding minutes wasted later...gave up, I would have thrown the phone out of the window...now long for my old gps...even though he was not perfect at least I could get through to him or receptionist! Moan over!

Once again the hapless Jeremy hunt is pursued by the vultures but actually the present situation has been magnified by new labour and Blair who increased GP salaries whilst simultaneously cutting their hours and ending their contract of community care that is why NHS a n e etc is in such a psarlous state and new year eve St Thomas hospital stopped admitting patients because revellers were stopping ambulances gaining accessvto Timmy and were diverted to Kings hospital Denmark hill.

Hampton Court! Need a passport to go that far, and they'll be country hares.
The last real London hares can be found at Wimbledon dog track, Plough Lane, on electric wires, being chased by greyhounds, but you'll have to be quick, that nice Mayor Khan has sanctioned closing it by March 2017, and turning it into a football stadium.

Oh, OK I see, thanks for replying. I do think the A50 will be triggered in March 2017 and Brexit take place 2 years later at the latest though. It shouldn't drag on, but rushing into these things isn't wise either, in my opinion.



Re: Nigel Farrage

Because a Vote to leave is what majority voted for, whatever people voted for should be carried out before 2020. I wonder what will happen in US if Hilary Clinton's voters demand another election?

In which case it will be un lapin.
My French relatives often cook lapin en hure, which is with herbs and vegetables.
Also lapin en paquets, pieces of rabbit, deboned and wrapped in bacon, cooked with garlic.
Lapin is often cooked in Belgian cherry flavoured beer, it's called lapin à la kriek.
Don't confuse lapin with lièvre, (hare), that's often cooked with onions and shallots, called lièvre en civet.
Here endeth the French lesson.[/quote]

As it doesn't appear to be the school pet I may check this out.
Rabbit goes well with Späetzle, or Spätzle, roasted baby carrots, and maybe a little herbed mash.



Rabbits in London?

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 15:44:25 +0000

As I was on my Sunday morning run I spotted a small brown rabbit hopping around on the Thames Path in front of The City of London School, it didn't seem particularly scared and after a moment hopped into the planters.

Sadly I didn't have a camera with me so have no proof, I know it was early but I wasn't hallucinating!

I've seen many things in London but never a rabbit, I thought maybe it was an escapee from the school, so I gave them a call, no they don't have any rabbits at the school.

I don't hold out much hope for it though as I've seen the peregrines in the vicinity and as for the foxes ....

These are the so called lefties, nooooooo they're really the old Anarchist lot, like the old Militant lot, the real lefties have left.

Similar tactics to the Democrat/black live matter kind of mob, disrupt at all costs.

Still, all the middle class home owning SE1 dwelling Corbynistas will be considerably richer after another two terms of Tory government. Did I mention the private health care of these jokers?

The media and politics

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 15:01:34 +0000

I've been thinking about this for a while, first they came for Farage, but I wasn't UKIP so I didn't care....

We see it now with Corbyn, it's really bugging me now, who do these people think they are?

I listen to a lot of talk radio, different stations yet all seem to sing from the same hymn sheet.
If someone dares to try and put Putin's position across they are closed down, if anyone tries to give examples of Western hypocrisy they are shut down.

Trump, no matter what you think of him, that election is being decided by the media.

Newspeak?



Re: My new food fad

I have been using fresh Turmeric root (thanks to Charlie's wife- green shop Blackfriars rd, where I'm now known as ....get this...Turmeric man!) and ginger and cinnamon sticks, powder's fine though, every vid I've watched, they use powder. I have to say though, there's powder and there's powder, you want less yellow and more golden. I got some powder from the local shop and it was bright yellow, got some organic stuff from Borough market and it's a different, more golden, colour. When dealing with the fresh root, one end is really orangey, the other bright yellow, when you buy the powder, you are getting one or the other.

God I need a life.
