just HOW HARD is it?!

Look up the word in the dictionary. Listen to native speakers saying it. Don’t tell me you’ve never heard it – have you never heard Ozzy’s song that is called precisely “Desire”?!

Accent is one thing. This kind of blissful ignorance is another. English is your job; either start singing in Swedish or give it a bit more respect!

  1. And Ozzy isn’t known for his stellar pronunciation skills. Especially when wasted…but, sheesh. It is bad enough to butcher the written word.

    It seems the older I get the more like Henry Higgins I become…if I start making people put pebbles in their mouths and break into song, just knock me out and drop me off a bridge or something.
