Dates written  Month/Day/Year, like:

February 12th 2024

...instead of the correct way , Day/Month/Year , like:

12th February 2024

Apparently it's  only the Americans who write  it MDY , so why the feck am  I seeing it more and more  in Ireland?


I'm sure you know that American English is more authentic an closer to the original than the English used across the british isles?

Yeah , but surely  you mean  grammatically closer? The numbers/date thing  is a different issue

But that's another  statement that annoys me.  Should be British and Irish  isles, or just Britain & Ireland , or Ireland & Britain.

No, I meant more authentic because when the pilgrims sailed off to America they took the english langauge as it was at that time. Since then, the english used in britain and ireland has evolved whereas the american version did not evolve at the same speed. Of course the Internet and modern communications is merging them again.

Hang in there, things to change this week apparently with a high pressure coming in from the Azores direction.


Tv car ads. Every single one of them is electric. Is that all they are allowed to push now?
