Headmaster was absolutely right

Have your say

ABOUT three and a half years ago a retired headmaster was talking about trends in our use of English.

He said: “Have you noticed? Whenever someone’s asked a question nowadays, the reply will rarely be a mere “yes”, it’s usually, “oh, absolutely”.”

I have been noticing ever since he said it, and he was absolutely right, as well as being merry and bright, but that’s another story.
