Footy lan­guage skills

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

Why did Chan­nel 7 re­cruit Brian Tay­lor as a footy com­men­ta­tor? He calls play­ers in­cor­rectly and uses words that he doesn’t un­der­stand. Ex­am­ples in­clude ‘‘ pro­lific’’ and ‘‘ lethar­gic’’ in­stead of ‘‘ prodi­gious’’ and ‘‘ la­conic’’ re­spec­tively. At least, we think that is what he means!
