    Ugly words

    I just saw "burglarized" in the Los Angeles Times.

    What on earth happened to burgled?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I don't think "burgled" ever really took root here.
    Burgarized goes back to the mid-19th Century.

    It's better than 'home invasion'...................it is a burglary isn't it ?

    Anyway........Susie Dent says many Americanisms are from old English and that we.....the English have moved on, but the zee's and stuff are native to real English.
    I find it hard, but her word is good enough for me.

    Burglarize - the condition of having been burgled.

    It makes sense to me, although I just made that definition up.

    Well, I will be 77 later this month, and I have never heard "burgled" used other than in a comedic sense, and very rarely, in the USA.

    "Burglarized" is the common term here.

    "Home Invasion" implies that the residents were home at the time of the crime and usually involves weapons. Burglaries imply that the residents were not present at the time of the crime.

    We would say we got burgled while we were home......cheeky buggers.....how dare they gadzooks.....then beat them with our brollies.
    Very few burglars come armed here.

    Trust you lot to go over the top.

    Yup. Don't know of many burglars that like to go in a home while the lawful residents are around.
