"A myriad of" is clunky but not incorrect. "A myriad" is certainly also acceptable, given this reflects its derivation as the number 10000. Even the ancient Greeks used it as a metaphor for large quantities in much the same way we'd say "ton". Which of the forms to use depends on what fits better in context. There are some cases where "myriad" simply doesn't sound right, and likewise "a myriad of". The one thing you shouldn't do is pluralise it.

Swedes.

I've been listening to this really tedious program on radio 4 lately, because it's on around the time I drive home from work, about this cunt living in Sweden. All the jokes are basically just "hurr they pronounce J as Y!" and it's meant to be a ZANY fish out of water comedy but heartwarming too because they're having a kid and FUCK OFF YOU VAPID MIDDLE CLASS WANKERS IT'S SHITE JESUS FUCK

That sums up every sit"com" on Radio 4. Pathetically unfunny, and any edges it may have smoothed down until they envy a baby's bottom so as not to offend any of the middle class cunts that might write a strongly worded letter to the editor. I don't really get it though, things like Sorry I Haven't A Clue and Just A Minute manage to keep it relatively fresh and funny -- maybe they are produced by different departments.

I would rather listen to 5 hours of nails upon a chalkboard mixed with Hitler's speeches than another minute of Count Arthur Strong. Thank fuck I moved out and never get lifts with my parents even when I visit home.

Did he make that up, or was he just mistaken? An "antidote" in that context sounds like something Larry David in Curb would use to put the end to an awful conversation. Hilarity ensues.

I'm sure he was very much mistaken, but he's one of those chaps who hears some kind of new idiom and doesn't bother to understand its meaning and just imitates it poorly. Dime a dozen becoming diamond dozen and all that.

"Anyone no of a good bridle shop?"

Bridle for bridal, she later asked about dressmakers, so I can assume she meant bridal. Add this to the pile of thickness in the thread.

I've always pronounced it "Smorg" in my head. Pronouncing it "Smaowg" just seems wrong to me.

Then again, you pronounce it Sow-ron instead of Saw-ron so evidently I'm getting all Middle Earth pronunciations wrong.

It's "Ka"; there's not really any ambiguity with it. If you pronounce it "Kay-Ayy" you're clearly a wrong 'un.

Apart from, you know, it being a homophone of "car", which happens to be the name of the thing the Ford Motor Company is known for making.

Come on, lads. Quit playing silly buggers.

Ka is a short sound of "Kah". Car has a longer pronunciation if you enunciate properly due to the "arr" at the end.

Admittidly they pronouce the word strangly but they seem to propounce all human communication strangely so I feel that should be taken with a pinch of salt.

People not knowing what a train is. A locomotive can pull trucks and the entire thing becomes a goods train or it can pull carriages and the entire thing becomes a passenger train, but an engine completely by itself is not a train.

How often does this come up in coversation? I don't think I have ever had cause to refer to an engine by itself because the average person only sees them when they are pulling a train, in which case we use the word train.
