Today, Emma Thomson is complaining about bad use of language. I, myself, am a big fan of original use of language and I like street innovations and changes. Language is a living thing.
But some things do annoy me. Near my work exists the Taberna del Alabardero. This grates with me every time I walk past it due to the double use of the definite article (i.e. 'the'). The "del" indicates "of the" and the "al" on the start of Alabardero is "the" in Arabic. Thus, it is called "Tavern of the the Bardero".
For some silly reason, this really annoys me. Maybe I should get a life.
