Truth to tell, I am not absolutely sure what is meant by the heading to this page. However. DSJ has been having a go at the media and correct use of the English language recently. so may I join in?
I know more about gears and superchargers than about grammar and syntax. But do tell me, why does almost everyone say track record these days whenever the word ‘record’ crops up, whereas this is only necessary when referring to racing of various kinds?
And why does the economy need a kick-start, an odd expression, surely, when most motorcycles now have electric-starters (or is that an inaccurate assumption?)
