    Re - the 'me and I' thing (more grammar than pronunciation)

    It is correct to say, "Lucas and I went to the shops"
    "this is a photo of me and Lucas"

    If you drop the other person - say it how you would normally say it if you were just talking about yourself. [Just don't say - 'this is a photo of myself' ]

    Bec - didn't know that - thank you

    And what's with all the hating on British pronunciation?!!! Surely, as we represent the country from which the language comes, then our pronunciation of English words is correct, and all others are just wannabe Americanisms...??? *takes shelter*

    DH insists on saying tortillas and fajitas phonetically (including when ordering in restaurants) just to embarrass me. He thinks he's hilarious.

    lol, DH likes to say fajitas to rhyme with *ahem* ... lady parts... He doesn't do it at restaurants though... well... maybe sometimes (like when consuming alcohol)

    Yep that's how he says it too. Unfortunately any time he's in a Mexican restaurant seems to be excuse enough, no alcohol required. He's even started my cousin doing it too. They giggle like little girls.

    Well thank you BH, I've had a giggle and learnt to pronounce 2 words the correct way... he he he

    My DH says he's top instead of his top. Drives me bonkers. My parents also say caffacino......

    Akkkk sorry, let me clarify - I meant people that say 'and I' in the specific times where it should be 'and me'. I was taught that you imagine the sentence with just you in it ie 'Would you like to come with [Hannah and] I?' doesn't make sense, but 'Would you like to come with [Hannah and] me?' does. There are lots of times when it is simply ...and I.

    I also thought of another one - crutch instead of crotch, although this seems to be an Australianism? No one ever believes me when I try to say that it is, in fact, crotch...
