How very non-u

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

TO con­tinue on a sim­i­lar thread to the but­ter knives (Let­ters, Au­gust 31), I grew up in the 1950s and 1960s with U and non-u words. An il­lus­tra­tion of a sen­tence with as many non-u words as pos­si­ble would be as fol­lows: ‘Par­don, but did I leave my servi­ette in the toi­let or in the lounge?’ I haven’t for­got­ten this les­son nor have I used the words since. Felic­ity Pinder, Wilt­shire
