    I didn't in the least challenge the authenticity of "y'all", I merely bridled at your baseless accusation (and again, since you by implication repeat it, I refer you to Mencken as the prime source of information on US usage) that "you all", hyphenated or otherwise, is "a grammatical error".

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

    Touche.... still, given another 50 years, I am sure It will morph Into 'Yall'.

    British English morphs at a far higher pace than US English and has since the early 18th century. The two current spellings reflect the continuation of two current Southern US pronunciations, I can see no reason to think either is dying out.

    Quite.

    A sequence of phonemes, often a word fragment, which constitutes the minimum unit of meaning or syntax within a given word. A morph may be one of several variants of a morpheme, depending for its individal form on the context in which it occurs. Thus the morphs -s and -es are variants of the morpheme by which the plural form of an English noun is expressed.

    I am In agreement that morphing Is a far rapid rate In Britain.

    I should think that Murdoch could quite easily step into the world of espionage now if he hasn't already done so. He's already got trained employees masquerading as journalists.

    The interesting thing about the English language is that it is possible to use grammatical errors and add flavour or character within the context it is used.

    Possibly so, but it's a vile thing to see a perfectly good verb like "morph" transformed into a peculiarly ugly noun. In my day we called those elements syllables. I defy anyone to find a "minimum unit of meaning or syntax" which uses more than a single syllable. Morphing as a form of linguistic transformation, on the other hand, is a useful concept.

    Ms Mills says: "There was absolutely no honest way that Piers Morgan could have obtained that tape that he has so proudly bragged about unless they had gone into my voice messages."

    Mr Morgan, the Mirror's editor between 1995 and 2004, has consistently denied sanctioning any phone hacking. In a statement issued through CNN on Wednesday, Mr Morgan said: "Heather Mills has made unsubstantiated claims about a conversation she may or may not have had with a senior executive from a Trinity Mirror newspaper in 2001.

    "I have no knowledge of any conversation any executive from other newspapers at Trinity Mirror may or may not have had with Heather Mills. To reiterate, I have never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, nor to my knowledge published any story obtained from the hacking of a phone."
    This is Piers Morgan the scoundrel, Piers Morgan the bounder, Piers Morgan the journalist, under discussion? And we're meant to believe his assertion? Piers Morgan's name is synonymous with blackguardly amoral lying, he doesn't deserve credibility. It would be pleasing to think he dare not return to the UK for fear of police questioning though. The US is welcome to him.

    All publicity's good publicity, eh Piers?

    Do pay attention. Those are links to on line editions. I very rarely buy a newspaper myself. I thought the beano most apposite as it has pictures to help you understand the storyline and the level of understanding and critical thinking required better suited to the average daily mail reader. The other two are perhaps a bit aspirational for someone used to BNP leaflets but one can but try.

    Thank you so much for the links because I did enjoy all the funny little pictures.
    I am assuming that you rarely buying a newspaper has nothing to do with you being from Scotland? Although some-one must have purchased one at one point as I recall you finding a Daily Mail on a bus, however, that was probably left there by a passing tourist who had bought It.
    The BNP have their own newspapers now you know as leaflets are just soooo last season.
