BBC NEWS | Magazine | The meaning of ‘lite’

Link: The meaning of ‘lite’.

hahahah, the irony – talk about the errosion of the quality of language. This must be one of the worst written articles on bbc.co.uk. Paragraphy 12 is a direct copy of paragraphy 5! and ““Lite” has been around for years but has had a resurgence in popularity in recent years,” uses the word years to near each other. “Not that long ago words [sic] such words would have been viewed as too American for any of the group’s titles, now they are making it into names.” doesn’t make any sense either.

It appears to be written in ‘Metro English’, short choppy sentences you can read on a hurtling tube train, where points D,E and F are rehashes of A,B and C and simple facts are stretched out.

“Pot to Kettle, requesting colour check, over” But eyedropper, your spelling and grammar are crap too? Sure are/i but then I ain’t no jouro.
