I'm surprised Golf did not appear as a selection, with all the connotations ;).

    You consider "golf" as a broad category? If you mean traditional golf, do you maybe use a club? Though my view of that sport is that it is a whole lot of crossing distance with a relative dirth of club use. But if you use a cart, then it degrades to 'motorized land vehicles'. Though I've also known golfers who participate mostly for the wildlife.

      Hey tye, when you say wildlife do you mean the wildlife that you create, the wildlife that already exists, or the wildlife that you bring with you? Golf can be a facinating sport!

      Does the "Beer Cart Chick" qualify as wildlife?

      I don't know whether to reply to Paulster2 or to ChuckularOne, so I'll punt and do neither.

      I was mostling thinking of an old friend who played golf because it was a way "to get Zoe into a bikini".

[LanX]: for instance I tend to say (h)uman with a mute h, (no idea were I learned this think it's somehow BE), but when I met YM last year she was correcting me ... only to find out that new yorkes like Trump always pronouce it that way
[LanX]: both acceptable
[LanX]: Friend of my worked for an international cooperation in Singapore and said the guys with the biggest communication problems were the native speakers ... pointing out an australian guy who needed a year to notice that nobody understood him
[Eily]: ah yes, I've starting feeling more confident about my accent when I realised I'm always going to be pronuncing it wrong for someone anyway :)
[Eily]: started*
[ambrus]: LanX: native speakers are close, but they aren't on the top. there are a _few_ foreigners who have such a thick accent that it takes more time to get used to it and understand the words behind than even the worst native speaker accents.
[ambrus]: but yes, typically native English speakers, who think that English is still their exclusive property, are the worst.
