Why do news readers always say AN historic when AN should only be used before a vowel.
Vowels are A. E. I. O. U. not H although most people say an hour but only because hour sounds like it begins with a vowel which does not make it right as it should be a hour. When you read the same lines in a newspaper it does not have AN in front of historic so why do it when speaking?
I have started this blog to vent my anger at the things that go unmentioned in today's society such as the above when news readers should be setting an example, they seem to copy each other as in when you hear one using an unusual word, (penultimate springs to mind) it becomes commonplace for a while among the media reports until a new word comes into fashion.
Watch out for these things and let me know your feelings.
Many more observations like this to come. STAY TUNED.
