    Oh geez...i didnt mean to cause this. I didnt explain properly so for that im sorry. He was describing a feeling he had to someone and said something like "it felt like i was being strangulated"....i thought the proper description would be "it felt like i was being strangled".
    When he said it out loud to a mate it sounded wrong....

    Am I incorrect???

    The reason for my post was that he uses words incorrectly and in the wrong context.

    Sorry for confusion..

    Hehe, how unlike us to go off on a tangent!

    (Either strangled or strangulated would be fine, although I agree that strangulated sounds a bit made up!)

    In high school while on a school camp my friends and I were being a little silly. One of our mates said "I'm sure you three have ADD" my friend asked "What's that?" I told her it was attention deficit disorder... She looked at him with a strange expression and replied ... "I'm not deaf??!!"
