So perhaps an example of this, instead of some Greek names?
my best mates mum is called Zena. She's not Greek, she's a manc, and her name is Russian

:thumbup:

Don’t you mean Xena?

P.s Great example by the way.

P.p.s Remember when you said you didn’t care about this?

So we've got a Greek name, we've got a Russian name.

"We use x and z interchangeably in English"

Any English words?

sometimes we do, for some words that start with X, which for English words is not a lot. do you know why? because the phoneme for X involves using the voice box, and English phonemes just don't do that at the start of words (certainly not with the phoneme indicated by X), so we substitute X with Z to simplify

:thumbup:

Zena and Xena, as above

We're at the point now where feedback is pretending he's just playing along, and that's all he was ever doing. Taking the piss mun having a laugh.

But there's no doubt the first dozen or so posts of nonsense were intended seriously. It's like when Fowler joined us in the NP days. Just a shadow of the past glories. Sad to see. :fedup:

Get well soon feedie

Not baiting. In the past, even when you were wrong you could still put up a good argument. I haven't seen that happen in a very long time, and it certainly isn't happening here.

It's a shame.

Bellwhiff
/Bell-whiff/
noun
insult hen Caerdydd

Someone that gives off a pungent odour, similar to that of a smegma scraping, taken from behind an unwashed and unclean foreskin.

In a sentence

That Goslow is a fucking bellwhiff aye.

It's a shame because you used to be good at it :fedup:

Feedback 2010 would never have said x and z are interchangeable in English, when he meant they sometimes have the same sound. Happens to us all, eventually, I guess.

I've already stated on several occasions I was referring to the phoneme X being replaced by Z when it's the initial sound of a word. It's no more complicated than that.

I'm off to watch Primer, as I fancy interacting with something that challenges me intellectually, something you've never been good at
